Each household deserves a safe sleeping surface to provide healthy and refreshing sleep. Whether it is a family of two or twelve, each one of us can benefit from a natural and non-toxic mattress in the home. A natural latex mattress will lower potential toxin exposure from synthetic foams or other chemicals such as fire retardants.
Mattress World Northwest displays the best assortment of natural, non-toxic mattresses in our shops and online. The selection of the best natural mattresses includes California hand-made Aireloom, hand-crafted Posh + Lavish latex, and Englander latex hybrids.
A mattress that is considered natural and non-toxic consists of naturally sourced material for the support system below and the comfort layers on top. Latex rubber is a renewable resource and is the most commonly used material for a non-toxic mattress. It also provides excellent spinal alignment and muscle relaxation for your body to encourage restful and rejuvenating sleep.
Latex is made by first extracting a milky sap from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree. After sourcing the eco-friendly ingredient, the milky-looking substance goes through a refinement process resulting in natural latex rubber layers that are hypoallergenic and non-toxic. A natural mattress also includes a cover that consists of wood or plant-based fibers like cotton, Tencel made from eucalyptus or bamboo. Wool is another option for an incredible natural textile that is protein-based. Wool provides an excellent benefit to create naturally durable, moisture-wicking, and bacteria-resistant fabric.
There are many considerable benefits to sleeping on a natural, non-toxic mattress. The fact that the materials are not harmful to your health is one of the dominant benefits of owning and sleeping on a natural mattress. Latex mattresses have little to no toxic chemicals or fire retardants used to create the mattress, including the glues or adhesives.
Mattresses made from components found in nature are healthy and safe for your whole family including infants and pets.
Non-toxic mattresses have little to no volatile organic compounds that create off-gassing, as most polyurethane foams do. Off-gassing from VOCs in synthetic material may cause allergy symptoms like skin or eye irritation, coughing, sneezing, or a runny nose.
Chemicals in mattresses have been known to induce debilitating conditions such as respiratory problems like asthma.
Some substances could cause lung damage depending on how sensitive your body is. Sleeping on natural materials like latex will eliminate exposure to toxins that may cause health problems. Although they can be slightly higher cost, latex rubber is the most durable material, and many latex mattresses can last up to 20 years. Choosing a natural style is the best way to protect yourself and your family by sleeping on a chemical-free mattress. Latex rubber and natural fibers will also provide outstanding benefits of support, comfort, and temperature regulation to give you a deep and restful night’s sleep.
Natural mattresses also benefit the environment while also reducing your carbon footprint because they are biodegradable. The Hevea Brasiliensis tree is the primary source of the sap used to start and produce latex. Fortunately, they do not have to be cut down to use their supply. They can live up to 30 years which makes latex environmentally friendly and a sustainable resource. Using latex and natural fibers helps to sustain our ecosystem because the supplies are renewable.
Latex is a sustainable resource that offers a positive environmental impact and is one of the most durable materials used in a mattress. Because of the molecular structure and high elasticity, it is nearly impossible to compress latex rubber. Resilient material makes for a long-lasting and incredibly comfortable mattress. Latex provides a unique “floating effect,” giving the body a responsive feel that is easy to move on. It presents bottomless support that provides a buoyant, floating feeling. Unlike memory foam, you will sleep more on top of a latex mattress than in it, which will keep your body cooler. This kind of support and pressure relief is superior to foams for optimal muscle relaxation and ease of movement. Aligning your vertebrae in your back and neck will decrease pressure points allowing you to sleep comfortably sound through the night.
Wool is one of the best natural protein-based fibers used in mattresses. It has incredible benefits to wick moisture, like sweat or humidity. Moisture-wicking fabrics will naturally transform moisture into vapor. Wool is a natural insulator in cold weather and will collect moisture to keep your skin dry and warm in the winter. In the summertime, it will absorb and wick away perspiration which will keep your body cooler.
Wool fibers can absorb up to 30% of their weight in moisture without feeling damp, which will benefit both warm and cool sleepers.
New Zealand produces long-staple Joma Wool from humanely raised free-range sheep. Wool is considered a miracle fiber from nature because of its extraordinary capabilities and is found in Posh + Lavish mattresses available at Mattress World Northwest. Compressed wool is one of the only options for a completely natural chemical-free fire retardant barrier.
Wool also resists mold, mildew, dust mites, and bacteria to keep your mattress clean and fresh. It can also be compressed up to 50% and still return to its original shape. Each strand can bend over 20,000 times without breaking. The structure of this protein and lipid fiber is amazingly durable, soft, and supple. A natural, non-toxic mattress using wool is favorable for anyone who has sensitive skin, eyes, or allergies.
Tencel is an exclusive fabric that is similar to silk, but also the most durable natural fiber. The silky and natural fabric is gentle on the skin and great if you have any skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. Unique nano-technology in each thread mimics horsetail hair. Long hollow fibers will wick away moisture to help control body heat and humidity by wicking it away. High-quality fibers like Tencel will allow you to sleep comfortably at the optimal temperature throughout the night.
Oeko-Tex 100 is a worldwide certification that examines substances in products that may be harmful to humans. This testing will give you absolute confidence in the highest level of product safety with every aspect of certified merchandise. Products will receive the Oeko-Tex Certification only if they meet all 100 criteria that test for regulated or non-regulated chemicals or substances that could be harmful to human health. Fire retardants, glues, fabrics, and other accessories undergo testing to safeguard consumers from risky or unhealthy chemicals or substances.
Mattress World has a wide selection of mattresses by Aireloom and Posh+Lavish that are Oeko-Tex Certified 100 products. We invite you to try the variety of firm and soft mattresses on display in one of our 20 store locations or browse the selection on our online shop.
Naturally sourced components like latex, wool, and Tencel are some of the finest ingredients used in a mattress. They are also more likely to be certified healthy and safe for you. Excellent muscle relaxation and long-lasting comfort is a direct result of creating a mattress out of natural materials. There is validation that natural and non-toxic ingredients are more durable than synthetic materials that typically contain chemicals that can cause health conditions. The essence of natural and non-toxic material is that it will be healthier for you and much more resilient.
