Naturepedic was founded by Barry A. Cik, a veteran in the field of environmental engineering with over 30 years of experience chasing chemicals. In anticipation of his first grandchild, Barry went searching for a suitable baby crib mattress. Sadly, he found that all of the crib mattress offerings on the market were completely unacceptable. Most bedding manufacturers, to his shock, used harmful chemicals and materials in both the assembly process and the final products. “I knew all about vinyl/PVC, polyurethane foam, and the various chemicals contained in them, and there was no way I was going to put my grandchild to sleep within a few inches of these chemicals.”
Barry then set out to find a suitable organic baby crib mattress, but no organic mattress company offered what he was looking for. “All of the organic baby crib mattresses on the market were not waterproof… if the mattress were to get wet, it would grow mold and fungus without any effective way to clean it.” According to Barry, “the organic baby mattresses were nothing more than miniaturized adult mattresses, which made little sense for babies.”
Barry, together with his two sons, set out to found Naturepedic, a non-toxic and certified organic mattress manufacturer dedicated to providing parents with a better alternative. They created the first and only waterproof organic baby crib mattress designed with a patented food-grade polyethylene cover, which is made without harmful chemicals and meets food-contact standards.
Fast forward to today, Naturepedic is one of the top organic mattress companies in the world inviting you to join in the mission of improving our lives and the lives of our children through healthier sleep.
