In 2008, Lifekind became the first mattress manufacturer in America to offer a Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic mattress.
Later, in 2013 we were the first to offer mattresses certified to the Global Organic Latex (GOLS) standard.
In 2015, our organic mattress was the first to achieve GREENGUARD Gold certification – UL’s highest standard for low emissions, VOCs and indoor pollutants.
Global Organic Textile Standard ("GOTS") #CU823400Annual Certification
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is a widely recognized and respected certification for organic fibers and textiles, including clothing, bedding, and household goods. The certification process covers the entire supply chain, from sourcing of organic raw materials to final product, ensuring strict standards are met for the production of organic textiles. These standards include requirements for certified organic fibers, environmentally friendly production processes, and fair labor practices. To be certified, products must meet minimum organic content requirements, have traceability and proper labeling, and undergo regular audits for compliance.
Global Organic Latex Standard ("GOLS") #CU823400Annual Certification
GOLS, the Global Organic Latex Standard, is a leading certification for organic latex products such as mattresses, pillows, and bedding. The certification process covers the entire supply chain and requires certified organic raw materials, eco-friendly processes, and fair labor practices. Products must meet stringent criteria like minimum organic content, traceability, and labeling, and undergo regular audits. GOLS is recognized globally for setting strict standards and ensuring organic integrity and sustainability of the product. It provides consumers with a trustworthy assurance of organic latex products.
GREENGUARD GoldSearch the UL Sustainable Product "SPOT" Database
GREENGUARD Gold certification is a certification program for indoor air quality and product emissions developed by UL. The certification helps to ensure that products are low-emitting and contribute to better indoor air quality in homes and schools, as well as commercial and institutional buildings. Products that receive the GREENGUARD Gold certification have been rigorously tested and verified to meet strict standards for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other chemicals of concern. The GREENGUARD Gold program covers a wide range of products including furniture, building materials and more.
GOLS Certified Organic Latex
Organic, botanical rubber sap is harvested from rubber trees grown on USDA certified plantations using a sustainable process. This sap (also known as latex) is then formed into a “core” for use in mattress making, or for molded pillows or otherwise.
Organic latex is durable, comfortable and breathable, providing even, responsive support and just the right amount of ‘springiness.’ Latex also sleeps cool, naturally.
GOTS Certified Organic Wool
The GOTS certified organic wool used in Lifekind mattresses and bedding products is sourced from New Zealand, where family and commercial farmers adhere to strict standards in order to assure the certified purity of their fibers. Organic pastures and grazing grounds, minimal processing and humane shearing practices (along with other requirements) contribute to the organic standard, to which our wool is certified. Certified organic, New Zealand wool is limited in production and fibre must be sourced years in advance.
GOTS Certified Organic Cotton
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton knit and woven fabrics are made from the highest quality, organic cotton fiber available. Organic cotton fabrics are exceptionally soft and naturally beautiful.
Luxurious and durable, organic cotton fabrics feel great against your skin and perform exceptionally well over time, tending not to snag, tear, rip or stain, even after many years of normal use.
