If you want to know more about whether a product is safe, be skeptical researching on the internet. Most so-called information pages will be manufacturers promoting their own products and often claim their competition uses unsafe materials. This makes life confusing for the public trying to find out the truth. If you look hard enough and long enough, you will always find something to be concerned about.
I have worked 35 years in the mattress industry and have seen many different materials used in mattresses so I hope my impartial advice will help you understand a little more about whether you should buy Polyester, Latex or a combination of both.
A Vegan mattress should take into account Vegan beliefs and lifestyle. Firstly (and obviously) it’s important it contains no animal product at all. But that is not all!
We also believe it is also just as important to contain no flame retardants or adhesives. No adhesives because they many contain animal products and formaldehyde, which is a highly toxic systemic poison. Many latex, coir fibre and natural mattresses use adhesives in large quantities to glue the mattress fillings together.
