Avocado Green Mattress, a Los Angeles-based organic mattresses producer, has achieved Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification for its Avocado Green mattress, Eco Organic mattress and Eco Organic Kids mattress.

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a globally recognized, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used. For a finished innerspring mattress to be Oeko-Tex certified, every component, from the outer fabric to the threads, foams and other accessories, must be tested and found safe from more than 1,000 substances known to be detrimental to human health, according to a news release.

Company officials say Avocado Green Mattress is the first in the United States to earn Standard 100 certification for the finished innerspring mattress. This comprehensive certification means that every part of the Avocado Green Mattress, Eco Organic Mattress and Eco Organic Kids Mattress, from the outer fabric to the pocketed innersprings, is tested for harmful substances and found to be within safe limits.

“Mattresses can contain harmful materials, adhesives and flame retardants,” said Mark Abrials, chief marketing and sustainability officer of Avocado Green Mattress. “Given the intimate and prolonged exposure we have to our mattresses, it is crucial to consider their potential impact on health. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification ensures that every material and component is safe from harmful chemicals, providing peace of mind for customers. We are thrilled to offer another robust certification for these three top-selling mattresses.”

Customers can verify that the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 labels on products are valid and cover the entire product. Customers can do so by visiting Oeko-Tex.com/en/label-check and scanning the QR code on the Standard 100 label. This ensures that the certification is valid and allows individuals to review the scope and covered articles to validate the manufacturer’s claims.
