Mattress certifications unraveled: understand what they really mean


Choosing the right mattress is essential for a good night's sleep and overall comfort. During your search for the perfect mattress, you've probably heard of various certifications and labels that are awarded to mattresses. But what do these certifications mean and why are they important? Here at Tuur®, we want to discuss the meaning and relevance of different mattress certifications.

Expert certifications for quality

Mattress certifications are independent assessments that evaluate the quality, safety, and performance of a mattress. They are awarded by recognized organizations and serve as a kind of guarantee to the consumer that the mattress meets certain standards. Here are some common certifications and what they mean:

OEKO-TEX® Standard 100: Guarantee for safety and quality

The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certificate is a globally recognized standard that indicates a mattress or its components have been tested for harmful substances and are safe for use. The certificate ensures that the mattress is free from chemicals that could be harmful to health. It is considered an important certification for textile products and guarantees that the mattress meets strict safety standards.

ECO Institute: Trust in health and ecology

The ECO Institute certificate is an indicator of ecological responsibility and safety. It guarantees that the mattress has been tested for harmful substances and meets strict ecological standards. This certificate gives consumers confidence in the health and environmental friendliness of the mattress.

LGA Quality Certificate: quality and sustainability

The LGA Quality Certificate is a certification that emphasizes the sustainability and quality of mattresses. The certificate is awarded to mattresses that have been tested for durability and resilience. It guarantees that the mattress will last a long time and remain comfortable, even after prolonged use.

FSC: Sustainable forest management

Although the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is not specifically focused on mattresses, it is a certification that is important for the sustainability of wooden mattress components. FSC certification indicates that the wood used for, for example, bed frames or box springs comes from sustainably managed forests. It is a sign of environmental awareness and respect for natural resources.
