Keetsa mattresses contain CertiPUR-US® approved viscoelastic memory foam that has been tested for durability, performance, and content. CertiPUR-US® is a voluntary testing, analysis and certification program developed to test for durability, content and indoor emissions. CertiPUR-US® is an extension of the European CertiPUR program developed in 2002 by EUROPUR, the association of European flexible polyurethane foam block manufacturers.

The Mattress Cover
We use Hemp blend fabrics and certified organic cotton fabrics. Most cotton fabrics are bleached or dyed to achieve a more pleasing appearance. But the bleaching process exposes the materials to chemicals. By using unbleached and uncolored cotton fabric, we are lessening your exposure to chemicals used in the bleaching process. Our organic cotton covers are made with certified organic cotton and are available on The Keetsa and latex line.
Our Hemp blend fabric uses 12% Hemp, 28% Cotton and 60% polyester. While being natural and sustainable, Hemp is unfortunately not durable enough by itself, so we have to blend it with cotton and polyester to create a cover that is less dependent on the oil industry and will still be durable enough to carry the Keetsa name. Hemp fabric is smooth, soft and durable and it is the most powerful humidity- absorbing and ventilating natural fiber fabric.
This Hemp blend fabric has been tested for OEKO-TEX Standard 100, which shows that the Hemp blend fabric does not contain any harmful substances. The testing has been done at SGS (http://www.sgsgroup.us.com/en), which is internationally renowned laboratory for consumer product safety testings.
Federal Regulations require all mattresses to comply with the standard of fire compliance, CFR1633. For The Keetsa Latex mattress, we use all natural 100% wool padding for our fire barrier. For other mattresses with memory foam layers, we use a fire barrier that is made with 100% cotton fabric treated with non-toxic FR agent.

Memory foam is renowned for its durability and comfort. Yet, most memory foam is made with 100% petroleum oil. Not very eco friendly. Keetsa has innovated Bio-foam™, a new type of memory foam that replaces a portion of the petroleum oil with castor bean oil, a natural plant oil. This accounts for less dependency on the oil industry and most importantly, this foam has no detected harmful VOCs and no detected formaldehyde. Much more eco-friendly.
Green Tea is increasingly recognized for its calming effect and for its powerful anti-oxidant. We utilize this powerful anti-oxidant in the form of Green Tea Extract mixed into the Bio-Foam formula to help ensure that our sleep products will maintain a fresh, natural scent without the use of chemical deodorizers.
The Mattress Support Systems:
Keetsa mattresses are self supportive. They do not require traditional box springs to give the proper support, as long as the mattresses are placed on a flat, stable surfaced foundation or bed frame. Also, we believe box springs are another form of waste for the environment. By having a firm and supportive base for the mattress, we have reduced the mattress waste to half, not to mention the reduced price.
Because our mattresses are so durable and well designed, we are able to compress them in a box,which accounts for reduced shipping costs, smaller carbon footprint and no delivery trucks.
Not just any mattress can be compressed!
Keetsa uses a Patent-Pending process that allows all of our mattresses to come in a highly efficient package. We've tested many of the major competitive brands and they cannot stand up to this new technology. Only high quality components can be compressed and come back to their original shape.
Keetsa has perfected this efficient process for all our mattresses and sleep products.
Smaller packaging means a lower carbon footprint from the store to your house.
All Keetsa products are packed into 100% recyclable boxes printed with water soluble ink. Also, the plastic bags used for the mattresses are biodegradable.
Durability and Warranty:
We hear it everyday..."My mattress only lasted a few years before it started breaking down." Poorly made mattresses fill our landfills, not eco-friendly. Keetsa strives to create products that will outlast
most major brands. We back up that commitment with one of the best mattress warranties in the business, a 12 year non-prorated warranty. We stand behind all our mattresses for 12 years. Well, we don't literally stand behind your bed...that would be kind of creepy.
