Question from Lauren

Can you tell me anything about Obasan mattresses. I read on another website that they are a great choice but haven’t been able to find much info about them otherwise however they look promising. I have been doing so much research on mattresses and am really having trouble making a decision. What is your opinion on metal springs and EMFs? Thank you so much for any advice you can offer!

I have no personal experience with Obasan but based on what they have on their website its sounds like a good option.  They have GOTS certified organic cotton and wool and GOLS certified natural rubber.  They don’t say anything about factory certification, however.  I would need to learn more about their process.

Naturpedic is my favorite mattress brand because they use only the most natural materials at every step of manufacture.  Their factory is certified along with the materials they use.  You can read more about it here. Naturpedic also has mattresses with no coils.

The topic of EMF in bed coils is a complicated one with many conflicting viewpoints.  I am not an EMF expert but based on what I have read I do not think mattress coils are a concern.
