The NaturePedic® Design
G.E.M Testing & Engineering Labs, on behalf of NaturePedic, developed and designed
the No-Compromise™ Baby Mattress to address the concerns of parents and doctors as presented in this report. The NaturePedic No-Compromise Baby Mattress has been designed in accordance with the following paramaters:
  • NATURAL MATERIALS:   The No-Compromise Baby Mattress utilizes cotton, a natural material with favorable qualities and an extensive history in mattresses and similar products. In particular, cotton has low toxicity concerns. Cotton provides for good air circulation while maintaining more even humidity and balanced temperatures. It has the ideal density for firm yet comfortable bedding.
  • NON-TOXIC DESIGN:   The design of the No-Compromise Baby Mattress strives
    to eliminate materials which may be toxic, hazardous, or otherwise potentially harmful, as is reasonably achievable. The following are specifically prohibited:
    • NO Phthalates
    • NO Vinyl (Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC)
    • NO Polyurethane Foam
    • NO Dangerous Fire Retardant Chemicals (PBDEs, antimony, modacrylic, etc.)
    • NO Scrap or Pig Hair Fiber Pads
  • FIRE PROTECTION:   The No-Compromise Baby Mattress is designed to meet and exceed Federal and State Flammability Standards, and exceed such standards by the highest possible margin reasonably achievable. Cotton naturally has a low rate of combustion and does not burst into flames when ignited as compared with polyurethane foam and PVC, eliminating the need for harsh industrial fire retardant chemicals. To maximize fire protection, FlameBreaker™, a non–toxic fire barrier system based on baking soda’s unique fire retardant properties has been developed.
  • FIRM SUPPORT:   The No-Compromise Baby Mattress uses extra firm high coil count orthopedic innersprings, providing the optimum pediatrician recommended firmness and comfort levels. The design also features heavy-duty border rods for extra
    side and edge support.
