Petit Somme Neck Pillows are made in the USA using Biogreen® memory foam.
Biogreen® is a proprietary, pressure sensitive, viscoelastic memory foam material that is free of dangerous chemicals like PBDE, TDI, Boric Acid and Bromine commonly found in other foams, as well as hazardous flame retardants. Petit Somme Neck Pillow is the only children's head support pillow on the market that uses this exclusive type of memory foam.
Biogreen® is an environmentally friendly memory foam that is approximately 13 times below Oeko-Tex®*, Certipur-US®* and GreenGuard's* allowable total V.O.C.s required to achieve certification!
What are V.O.C.s?
V.O.C. stands for Volatile Organic Compound.
V.O.C.s include a variety of chemicals, some of which have been linked with adverse health effects, and are found in many consumer products, including inks, gasoline, cleaning supplies, newspaper, carpets, glues, furniture, perfume, and cosmetics, and even many baby and children products, including car seats and toys. The emissions often have no recognizable odor or color, vaporize easily at room temperature, and can be triggered when products are used or stored.
Obviously, the health of your child is very important, and with a product that is so close to the child's respiratory system, off-gassing of V.O.C.s is a serious concern, since it affects the very air our children breathe! Biogreen® proprietary memory foam is produced by using a very special process that reduces the volatility of these carbon based chemical compounds, which results in an unprecedented low V.O.C. emission level rating for any type of memory foams currently available.

Biogreen memory foam has been tested by UL laboratories, using their GreenGuard testing criteria.
