The entirely chemical and animal product free Cot and Cot Bed Mattresses
As the UK specialist in chemical free and safe fire-retardant materials, we are proud to add a unique Vegan Cot Mattresses to our range.
Our Cot and Cot Bed Mattresses pass the relevant safety and fire regulations: BS 7177:2008 + A1:2011. They also conform to the European standard BS EN 16890:2017(8.2.3 and 126.96.36.199).
At Cottonsafe® we have been actively lobbying to ban the use of fire retardant chemicals in all infant and baby products. The use of flame retardant chemicals in cot mattresses is of particular concern as babies are very sensitive to the adverse health effects of these chemicals, some of which are carcinogens and developmental toxins.
In creating an exclusive Vegan Cot and Cot Bed mattresses, our primary objective was to meet the product safety requirements and to ensure that it contains absolutely no fire-retardant chemicals, no animal products, no foam and no dangerous residues which can be inhaled or absorbed. Read more about the safety standards in our blog here: Cot Mattress Safety Blog.
Each of our Vegan Cot and Cot Bed mattresses are handcrafted to order in Devon and (unlike other manufacturers) we do not use solvents or adhesives in the construction as these may contain formaldehyde.
Inside the Vegan Cot and Cot Bed mattresses, we use a thick layer of core support polyester to ensure the correct density and support level required to meet the strict safety regulations. The core support polyester allows maximum air flow to increase ventilation and reduce moisture build-up.
The outer cover of our Vegan Cot and Cot Bed Mattresses uses our unique ‘Purity’ Polyester fabric. This is highly breathable so ideal for this purpose. This fabric has a very simple polymer, it is super-soft and hypoallergenic.
The cover is zipped in place and the zip puller removed to seal the cover in place and meet the safety regulations. The cover is an integral part of the cot and cot bed mattress and is not removable or washable. A waterproof cover is required (not supplied but a chemical free protector is available when placing your order).
Our Vegan Cot and Cot Bed Mattresses are also eco-friendly and recyclable. All our Vegan Cot and Cot Bed Mattresses meet the Stockholm Convention for recycling.
