Question from Mary
I bought a mattress that advertised oeko Tex standard 100 certified. Natural polyol based premium foam. With Visil flame retardant. Once received the tag said 98% polyurethane foam with 2 % blended fiber batting. I contacted company and said foam is derived from vegetable oil. Is this mattress safe from toxins. Should I return. I know companies can be deceiving and bought for my 5 year old.
I agree this is deceiving. If it is 98% polyurethane, that means that it is plastic made from petrochemicals. There may be a small percentage of plant-based material included. It is difficult to say from the limited information on the label. I would return it.
