If you're looking at purchasing an organic mattress there are a few things you should know before hand. When you're looking for an organic mattress be advised that there isn't a 100% organic mattress on the market. Only two components in mattresses can truly be organic: cotton and wool.
Organic cotton is free of chemicals and is grown without any kind of modification.
Organic wool is good at whisking moisture away from your skin, keeping your body naturally cool.
Organic mattresses are generally quite firm, to make them more comfortable to sleep upon you may want to look for one made with natural memory foam.
The natural memory foam used as a support layer is non-organic, but be sure it is 100% natural latex. This is especially important if you are buying an organic crib or organic toddler mattress.
Memory foam is known to be more comfortable than latex, however that comfort comes at a cost. They are made with chemicals and can produce outgas and fumes for years.
Natural memory foam creates a healthy sleeping environment, and has all the comfort of memory foam while providing other benefits. Some of those include that it's 80% more breathable than traditional memory foam and that it is biodegradable.
Purchasing organic products, including mattresses, and living a chemical free life is good for you and the planet.
