The organic label is a bit of a marketing gimmick, because often a very small component of the mattress can actually be organic and still be advertised as such. nbsp;For instance the foam core, the major component of the soybean mattress, is not organic but a synthetic chemical product. nbsp;The soy component percentage varies, but the main ingredient is usually still polyurethane. The cover may contain only a portion of organic fibers and still carry an organic label. nbsp;Read the mattress descriptions carefully so you know what you are getting and if it's in line with your rationale for buying organic. nbsp;Some other popular brands are LA baby, which sells some reasonably priced "organic" mattresses with various organic components and Naturepedic, whose line has some expensive "organic" mattresses. nbsp;Similar thing for most "organic" covers. nbsp;The waterproof lining is usually some sort of synthetic liner or membrane, polyester batting and then an organic cotton cotton top.nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;
All this is true I'd also add that being organic doesnt mean free if chemicals. All mattresses will have fire retardants added to them unless they use wool as a natural fire retardant.
You can purchase a chemical free and plastic free mattress that is organic. There are some out there that aren't that expensive. I bought one like that and use it with a wool puddle pad to repell moisture with an all cotton mattress pad over top. The mattress pad absorbs most if the wet while the wool layer beneath keeps the mattress dry.
This is the one I purchased:
