Unfortunately organic mattresses are not that closely regulated as organic food and organic food production processes. Manufacturers try to use the word organic together with other popular terms like natural, eco-friendly, green, or sustainable to attract many health and environment cautious customers. Organic cotton cover doesn’t make the whole mattress organic.
In order for a mattress to be labeled Organic ALL its components must be produced in full compliance with USDA National Organic Program (NOP) regulations or must be produced in accordance with the (PM-11-14) addressing the labeling of textile products containing organic ingredients and made it more transparent for consumer to distinguish a true Organic product.. This was explicitly directed in the USDA NOP Policy Memorandum
