  • As I learned that the Sealy Soybean EverEdge Foam-Core crib mattress is only one fifth soy with the balance being made of polyurethane foam, which is highly flammable, I was surprised to see that Kolcraft said on their website that the mattress “.” I admit it, I have become skeptical of how companies say things to promote their products. Who knows what Kolcraft might really mean in its statement? Do they mean that the mattress does not have toxic fire retardants but it has retardants that they claim are non-toxic? So I decided to contact them and to be very careful with the choice of words I used to ask the question. When I called, I asked the company representative whether they use any chemicals in the Sealy Soybean EverEdge Foam-Core crib mattress to meet the Federal Flammability Standard. She said, “no.” Then I asked her what have they done to the mattress in order to meet the flammability standard. Her answer was they use a cotton felt wrapping around the foam. The company representative said that she can’t disclose what the cotton felt blend is made of. I asked her to send me an email with this information but she declined the request, explaining that it is proprietary information. I thought that maybe the customer service representatives are not allowed to send emails but a corporate officer could, so I posted my question . Here is my question:

  • In conclusion, I know that Sealy Soybean EverEdge Foam-Core crib mattress is made of foam that is only 22% soybean and the rest is polyurethane, because that is what Kolcraft said in the Q&A section of their website. And I am still not quite sure what Kolcraft has done to make the foam meet the flammability standard. Is it the wrap? And what is in that wrap? Are they hiding a secret formula of the wrap from their competitors or is there something they do no want their customers to know? In my experience, companies that have clean and safe products go above and beyond to educate the world about how great their products are, and don’t try to hide the ball.

    Thus, to see the certifications gives me some piece of mind about Sealy Soybean EverEdge Foam-Core crib mattress. I am not going to throw away the mattress, at least not right now, but if I knew back then what I know now I would have definitely decided against the Sealy Soybean EverEdge Foam-Core crib mattress. Low chemical emissions, but emissions nevertheless. Do those levels take into consideration possible long-term consequences of sleeping face down on the mattress? And what about unknown chemicals such as flame retardants that manufacturers might be using? Greenguard doesn’t test for those. And if I consider the environmental pollution by PVC, I would easily pay $100-$150 more for a mattress free of it.
