Organic mattress utilizes organic breathable materials so as to remain warm in winter and cool in summer. Organic mattresses provide restorative sleep with their contoured support. They improve circulation while sleeping by reducing tossing and turning. Organic mattresses can last up to 25 years providing supportive and comfortable sleep.


Need for organic mattresses

Conventional mattresses are highly toxic as they are made up of many chemicals like flame retardants such as antimony and boric acid. Most of the mattresses today widely use Formaldehyde, TDI (toluene di-isocyanate), styrene, butadiene and other petroleum derivatives. Though they are easier to manufacture, long term usage and side effects are worrisome.


On the other hand organic mattresses contain nontoxic, pesticide-free materials such as cotton, wool and natural latex rubber. These mattresses are eco-friendly and people who sleep on natural mattresses using organic materials like natural wool and latex, toss and turn significantly lesser and enjoy better quality of sleep.


Organic latex mattresses

Latex obtained from rubber tree is a naturally biodegradable product. Latex is hypoallergenic and helps to keep warm in winter and cool in summer. Bacteria, mildew and mold cannot live in latex foam. Latex foam is three times more resistant to dust mites and bacteria than other mattresses. Latex foam has the amazing ability to adjust to the body contours by providing gentle orthopedic support to maintain proper spinal alignment without restricting capillary blood flow. Latex mattresses can last up to 30 years and are ideal for athletes.


Organic cotton - wool mattresses

Organic mattresses made from wool are softer, thicker, warmer and longer lasting with its superior durability, insulation and moisture regulation. The wool is cleaned using a unique chemical free process that produces exceptionally clean wool, by retaining high natural lanolin content.


Most of the wool produced is free of any sort of plastic, baling twine and mothballs. Hypoallergenic organic cotton, wool, and hemp futon mattresses are perfect for people suffering from chemical sensitivities and other allergic reactions.


Organic wool mattresses enjoy natural insulating properties and help to regulate the body temperature in every season and climate by wicking away the moisture from the skin.


Benefits of organic mattresses
  • Organic mattresses are better than synthetic mattresses which contain polyurethane foam which can cause serious allergies.

  • Organic mattresses made of natural bio-degradable products are dust repellant which make them safer and healthier to sleep on.

  • Organic mattresses are free from fire retardants, pesticides, dioxins, formaldehyde and other chemicals that may damage health.

  • Organic mattresses provide insulation and absorb humidity and provide dry, chemical-free and environment friendly sleeping medium.


Drawbacks of organic mattresses

  • Organic mattress gives out a sticky smell and may trigger headache.

  • Organic mattress made up of wool and cotton content can easily pack down and sag over time. But, with proper branded quality product this disadvantage can be avoided.

  • Organic mattress that is made of natural latex and cotton may have a potential fire hazard.

Choose right organic mattresses


  • Organic mattresses come in various thicknesses and layers. Choose for several latex layers of differing hardness with a softer top layer for a supportive and plush sleeping surface.

  • Find a bed with a built-in wool pad, wool fill or upper wool layer which can absorb moisture with a natural antibacterial and flame-resistant property. This will ensure wool that is sans pesticides.

  • See to it that the manufacturer of the mattress uses no glues, plastics, dyes, flame-retardants, chemicals or synthetics.

  • Opt for a wool puddle pad style mattress pad or a cotton-wool combination mattress pad as they are equivalent to organic mattresses.

  • Select organic mattresses that best matches one's preference. For example, an organic innerspring mattress is often chosen for its affordability. Organic natural latex-core mattresses are more durable, breathable, supportive and toxin-free.

  • Ensure that you are buying a certified organic mattress. You can verify this against the list of accredited organic retailers from the Organic Consumers Association. Beware of the misuse of the term 'organic' in product sales.

Multi-layer construction organic mattresses allow you to rest in a correct posture and provide orthopedic support. This can aid people of varying body types. Organic materials have varying levels of firmness. Organic mattresses can be of two types - innerspring or rubber. Fortunately, in both types, synthetic and chemical ingredients are avoided.
