Sleeping Responsibly: How Sleepyhead's CertiPUR-US® and OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 Certified Toppers Enhance Your Sleep Health and Environment

Posted by Courtney Tobey on

When it comes to ensuring a good night's sleep, comfort is key. But beyond just comfort, the safety and environmental impact of our bedding choices are increasingly important considerations. This is where certifications like CertiPUR-US®  and OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 come into play, offering our consumers peace of mind about the toppers that they're bringing into their sleep environment. Sleepyhead has taken significant steps by ensuring that all of our mattress toppers are certified by both CertiPUR-US® and OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100, demonstrating a commitment to quality, safety, and environmental stewardship.

CertiPUR-US® Certification: Ensuring Safety and Sustainability

CertiPUR-US® certification focuses on the foam used in our toppers. Our toppers are made without ozone depleters, PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers), TDCPP or TCEP ("Tris") flame retardants, mercury, lead, and other heavy metals. They also do not contain formaldehyde or phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Furthermore, CertiPUR-US® certified foams have low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million).

For consumers, this means that all of the Sleepyhead toppers are not only safe for their health but also for the environment. The absence of harmful chemicals ensures that the air quality in your bedroom remains clean, contributing to a healthier sleep environment. Moreover, the sustainability aspect of CertiPUR-US® certified products aligns with the growing consumer demand for environmentally responsible products.

OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®: Comprehensive Safety Assurance

OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certification takes a broad approach by testing for harmful substances in our topper covers. This includes not only the materials themselves but also any accessories such as zippers and threads. The testing criteria are extensive and updated annually to keep pace with new scientific knowledge and regulatory requirements.

By ensuring that all of our topper covers meet OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100, Sleepyhead provides an added layer of assurance to our customers. This certification means that every component of the topper, right down to the smallest detail, has been tested for harmful substances and found to be safe. This is particularly important for those with sensitive skin or allergies, as it reduces the risk of irritation or allergic reactions.

Combining Comfort with Peace of Mind

While the primary function of a mattress topper is to add an extra layer of comfort to your bed, Sleepyhead's commitment to CertiPUR-US® and OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certifications adds significant value. Consumers can rest easy, knowing that their choice contributes to a safer, healthier sleep environment and a more sustainable world.

Sleepyhead's decision to ensure that all of their toppers carry CertiPUR-US® and OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certifications reflects a broader trend in consumer goods toward products that are not only high-quality and effective but also safe and environmentally responsible. For consumers looking to make informed choices about their bedding, these certifications offer a clear indication of Sleepyhead's commitment to meeting the highest standards of safety, quality, and environmental stewardship.
