I’m very sensitive to fire-retardant and other chemical products in mattresses, like memory foam.
I didn’t used to have these problems.
But apparently, in 2007, a federal mandate added some ridiculous requirements for flame retardant.
Mattress makers who use things like foam have no choice but to comply, so they spray the mattress casing with chemical fire retardants, rather than cover the mattresses in something that doesn’t burn, like wool, which is natural but too expensive.
I’m on my third mattress in two years and still looking for one that doesn’t give me a headache.
Your headaches are more likely due to the chemical off gassing of the memory foam.
The chemical fire retardants usually affect menopausal females.
Here is a link to a line of mattresses with natural latex and NO Memory Foam.
These Natura of Canada Greenspring mattresses use wool as a natural fire retardant.
