Hi thanks for the reassurance - but, the first site does not mention green tea extract at all - and some negative comments about seed oils and the second only in passing that green tea may positively impact cancer - but only in too high of doses to be useful. Not sure how this answer is particularly helpful to me???? I consulted a vet, rather than rely on my own web search as I was hoping for a more informed answer to my question. Not feeling particularly reassured at this time!!

Green tea is used in cancer therapy in cats, hence it is safe.

You are not planning to have her ingest any of this so sleeping on the mattress would be considered very limited exposure.

In was just trying to assure you no harm would come to from lying on the mattress.

The second link does mention green tea.

Would you like me to opt out and see if one of my colleagues can help?

My main goal is you be happy with your answer.
