How Does GOLS Certification Matter for Latex?
Buying a GOLS Certified Organic Latex Mattress is important as different certifications make different claims. This can make it difficult to determine if the mattress you’re about to purchase is partially or completely made using pure, naturally-sourced latex.
For example, some mattresses have labels that claim the product is “all-natural.” But a label like this is meaningless if there are no authentic certifications. Also, a mattress labelled as an “organic mattress” may have some certified organic materials in it, such as an organic cotton cover. But, the inside materials may be filled with chemicals and fillers. Certified organic materials must make up 95% of the materials in a mattress to truly qualify as an “organic mattress”. There should be no harmful chemicals, hybrid fillers, or synthetic latex used in the manufacturing process.
GOLS certification requires a stringent audit each year to keep it active, so we must go through stringent testing, assessment, and examination of our entire sleep product range. These certifications allow us to make the best latex mattress in India.
