Latex Mattress Materials

Buying a new mattress is a big decision. Whether you’re looking for a mattress to last the next five years or the next 25, it’s important to know the materials that go into the mattress you’ll sleep on every night for as long as you own the mattress. If you spend an average of seven hours of sleep per night in bed, you’ll be spending a lot of time with your new mattress over the next few years. It’s a good idea to make sure you’re making the right decision for your needs for sleep, health, and peace of mind. A natural latex mattress can do all of those things for you. Here’s why.

100 Percent Pure Joma Wool

Pure Joma wool is the fire retardant you’ll find in a PlushBeds natural latex mattress. Most flame retardants used in mattresses today contain Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs). These chemicals are the same ones the UC Davis Health System found to be linked to social, behavioral, and learning deficits.

An added benefit of Joma wool is that it allows air to flow through keeping you comfortable and cool throughout the night, as well as protected from combustion.

Organic Cotton

The mattress cover for the Botanical Bliss line of latex mattresses from PlushBeds is made of non-woven organic cotton. Being knit instead of woven, this allows the mattress to maintain maximum elasticity to assist in the exceptional pressure relief the mattress delivers night after night.

Natural Latex

PlushBeds uses all natural latex from the sap of rubber trees to create the Talalay mattress layer as well as the firm Dunlop latex core of the mattress. The Talalay layer provides exceptional buoyancy, while the Dunlop layer serves as the mattress’s supportive foundation layer.

Spruce Wood

The orthopedic foundation of your PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattress is constructed of all natural spruce to provide adequate support, while allowing the pressure relieving flexibility necessary for restful, healthful sleep.

GreenGuard Gold Certification

We take great pride in the fact that our Botanical Bliss line of mattresses has been awarded GreenGuard Gold Certification. This was once referred to as Children and Schools Certification because mattresses that meet these standards are suitable for use among the most sensitive and vulnerable members of populations (children and the elderly). Products that meet GreenGuard Gold Certification standards are acceptable to use in nursing homes, hospitals, schools, and other places that house children, the elderly, and the infirm.

While it’s always wise to know what’s in your mattress, it’s also a good plan to pay attention to what’s not in your mattress. When you purchase Botanical Bliss mattresses from PlushBeds, you aren’t buying:

  • Chemical Retardants
  • Glues
  • Formaldehyde
  • Carcinogens
  • Synthetic Blends
  • Petroleum Fillers
  • Harsh Chemicals
  • Pesticide-Treated Cottons
  • Anti-Fungicides

What you are getting is a mattress made from materials you can sleep on with a clear conscience and real peace of mind that you’re making a good choice for the sake of your health, your planet, and your home.
