CertiPUR-US

CertiPUR-US is a voluntary testing, analysis and certification program for flexible polyurethane foam used as a cushioning material in home furnishings such as adult mattresses, crib mattresses, upholstered furniture and some accessory comfort products.

CertiPUR-US testing is done on individual foam components, not on finished products.  In practice, the CertiPUR-US logo means that a specific mattress model contains at least some foam that has been certified by CertiPUR-US.  CertiPUR-US certification is NOT an indication of natural or organic status.

Certified flexible polyurethane foams have been independently laboratory tested and certified to be:

  • Made without ozone depleters
  • Made without PBDE flame retardants
  • Made without mercury, lead and other heavy metals
  • Made without formaldehyde
  • Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
  • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million)

The CertiPUR-US certification process was developed by the foam industry in collaboration with bedding and furniture industry leaders, environmentalists, chemists, and accredited laboratory research scientists.
