Recent news revealed that certain mattress brands have claimed in promotional materials that their mattresses were “Designed and Assembled in the USA.” Meanwhile, the mattresses are imported from China, with no assembly taking place in the United States at all. ShopTherapedic takes this opportunity to clarify our manufacturing process, as all of our mattresses are, in fact, proudly made in the USA.
When our Immunity and Agility mattresses are made in the USA, they are constructed with American families in mind. Many families who shop for a new mattress online are concerned about the smell of a new mattress and the possibility of chemicals escaping from the product when it is opened.
We want you to rest easy knowing that all of the foams used in our mattresses have environmental certifications that ensure they are perfectly healthy to be around. Although a new mattress may have a mild scent upon unboxing, the way a new car or new shoes do, any scent should dissipate over a short period of time in a well-ventilated room.
The federal government requires all mattresses sold in the U.S. to meet very stringent regulations. At ShopTherapedic, it's incredibly important that we deliver on our promises, from the highest quality materials and the safest manufacturing process to great customer service. Our mattresses use the safest fire retardant barrier we could find - a fire retardant knit sock covers the foam before the outer cover is placed on the mattress. No chemicals, just textiles. The knit sock is made from a proprietary yarn with a silica core and a polyester/acrylic/nylon/rayon outer wrap. The knit sock is made without any toxic chemicals and is OEKO-TEX certified.
In addition, all the foams in our mattresses have environmental certifications that ensure they are safe and non-toxic. Our polyurethane foams (memory foam and poly support foam) are CertiPUR-US certified. CertiPUR-US approved foams are made without ozone depleters, PBDE flame retardants, mercury, lead, formaldehyde and phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The mattresses have low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality and our top latex layer is OEKO-TEX Standard 100, Class 1 certified. They meet the highest standard that guarantees the foam is safe enough for use by babies and children.
With headquarters in Princeton, New Jersey, and 10 factories throughout the US, our products were engineered to ensure you achieve the most restful sleep. Since the mattress is made and assembled in America, your purchase supports the U.S. economy. And with our 100-day trial, and free delivery, you have nothing to lose.
