How can you be sure the foam in the mattress or upholstered furniture you are about to purchase is really certified through the CertiPUR-US® program? It’s easy. Just check our online consumer directory of participating companies and brands to see if the company or brand you are considering buying from is listed on our website.
If the company is not listed, we have no way of knowing for sure if it is using certified flexible conventional, gel, memory or specialty polyurethane foam.
There are companies that use our logo and say their foam is certified—but unless they are registered and listed with us, you simply can’t be sure. The companies that are listed on our website have all submitted forms to document their use of certified foam, including verifications filed separately by one or more of our participating foam producers.
So, whatever your salesperson tells you, or whatever label you see on the merchandise, or whatever the product website says, cross-checking with the CertiPUR-US online directory of participating firms is the way to confirm. If you come across a company that is misrepresenting its use of certified foam, please let us know by contacting us via this form. Very often in that case, the company means well; they just are not aware of the rules of the program and how they can get registered and listed on our website. We’re a nonprofit and do not charge for these listings.
We want the list to be as complete and valuable to consumers as possible because we get contacted every day from people who want the products they bring into their home to made without ozone depleters, formaldehyde, heavy metals such as lead and mercury, or PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (“Tris”) flame retardants – and all the other benefits, such as low VOCs for indoor air quality, that come with certified foam.
There are now more than 1,000 mattress, pillow and upholstered furniture manufacturers and retailers selling products containing CertiPUR-US certified foam, so it won’t be hard to find just what you want for your home—made with certified foams, or as we say here: foams that feel good and you can feel good about® !
