Off-gassing is the term for what happens when volatile organic compounds (VOCs) created during mattress manufacturing are released into the air. Those VOCs can carry unpleasant chemical smells, respiratory irritants, and other health risks. Saatva mattress foams will never off-gas in your home. Here's why:
- All Saatva foams are Certi-PUR certified, which means they are low-VOC and do not contain any harmful chemicals.
- Our foams are eco-friendly. We remove 30% to 40% of the petroleum and replace it with natural derivatives from corn and soybean oil.
- By the time the foam goes into your mattress, any off-gassing has already happened at the facility where the foam is made. We don't ship any foams to our factories until they are 100% stable.
