My friend owns this business and they make the mattresses themselves. Also make futons. Lots of integrity. I'm sure you could call and talk to them and answer your questions.
Hi there escher, I'm not sure if you're based in the U.S or U.K, but if you're based in the UK you may like to check out our website www.buyorganics.co.uk.

Yes, I have!
A few years ago I bought a natural latex, wool topped and organic cotton wrapped children's mattress (crib/toddler size) from Dax online. I was very happy with the mattress quality and had no problems with the company. At the time it did take a while to get the mattress - like 3-4 weeks or so I think? - because they were at least then made to order. Hubby and I ended up buying something similar for ourselves locally, but if we didn't have a store like that, I'd definitely buy from them again (at that time, our local store didn't carry the size we wanted, which is why we bought online).
This is them:
They are expensive but super nice and worth the money! HTH
As retailers of organic bedding products including both adult and juvenile mattresses we would not recommend buying a mattress online unless you can speak to somebody in person. It is important for your retailer to understand what you need in a mattress. An organic mattress can cost you anywhere from $1,900 and up for a Queen size mattress and you spend 1/3 of your life on it. A good organic mattress retailer takes pride in their products and would want you to have a mattress that is right for you, especially if you are purchasing from a store in which you can't touch and lay on the mattress. You don't have to call our store, but I do recommend that you work through either an actual store or an online retailer in which you can talk to an honest person who wants to help you. Good luck and I hope you find what you are looking for.
Naturepedic follows the precautionary principle and eliminates questionable chemicals in the first place. Naturepedic also avoids the use of certain conventional mattress materials such as vinyl/PVC and polyurethane foam in favor of materials such as food-grade polyethylene and organic cotton. In addition, Naturepedic eliminates all fire retardant chemicals, perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), and antibacterial biocides.
Naturepedic avoids the use of materials with well known allergenic properties (i.e. latex and wool) for all its baby and children's products. According to the FDA, a product containing latex cannot be labeled as “hypoallergenic.” Coir (or coconut husks) also contains latex as a bonding agent. Wool intrinsically contains lanolin and certain alcohols known to have allergenic properties. Other allergens originate not with the wool itself, but with the chemical treatments applied. When it comes to babies, we believe a more precautionary approach is appropriate.
NO Flame Retardants or Flame Retardant Barriers
NO Memory Foam or Other Forms of Polyurethane Foam
NO Soybean or Biobased Foam (polyurethane foam with soybean oil mixed in)
NO Latex, Wool or Other Commonly Allergenic Materials
NO Polyurethane Coated Nylon or Damask Fabrics
NO Antibacterial Treatments or Biocides
NO Glues or Adhesives
NO GMO cotton or other GMO fibers
NO Shoddy Insulator Pads
What materials are used to make them?

The combination of latex and memory foam gives the mattress a cushioning effect allowing for minimal motion transfer. The latex layer provides the cooling component and allows for the optimal level of bounce. The memory foam creates a cushioning effect, giving the mattress the ability to adjust to your body shape, creating individualized support. And finally, the polyurethane layer gives the mattress the perfect density and ensures long-term durability. It provides optimum support by responding to each individual’s body; however any movement is confined, not affecting other areas of the mattress. Hence, movement is absorbed, which means if you are sharing your Onebed with another, you won’t be affected by their night.
