Without a doubt, this webinar was one of our most informative and important ones to date. Barry like most of our guests, is a true expert in his field. It is a very important subject considering we spend one third of our life on a mattress. A mattress must be safe and chemical free. Listen and learn. Isn’t your health worth 40 minutes of your time?

  2. What makes for a safe crib/mattress.
  3. Why a crib mattress needs to be waterproof and the various ways to achieve it.
  4. Latex (and even more so with “natural” latex is a known and documented allergen)
  5. Certifications and their validity. Buyer beware!
  6. Synthetic latex is made with petroleum-based oils and chemical additives. Chemicals typically added include formaldehyde and flame retardants, which have been proven dangerous to health.
  7. Organic Latex: Organic latex is made from the sap of the rubber tree which is processed. A mattress made from organic latex does not contain any chemicals, synthetics, pesticides, herbicides, or other man-made products.
