Construction of Organic Mattress Against Conventional Mattress

Sleeping in an organic mattress brings many benefits not only to your health but also to the environment. Between this type of a mattress and a synthetic mattress, the former is safer to sleep on even for babies and those with allergies.

The construction of conventional mattress is done using synthetic materials and foams (including synthetic latex). They are usually made with PVC, which is taken from petroleum by products and thus can be toxic. This material is also not sustainable, therefore it depletes the earth’s resources. Conventional mattresses usually contain the following chemicals, which is supposed to help it last longer, bug free resistant and durable: butadiene, acetone, acrylate resins, imethylformamide diphenyldiisocyanate, phthalates, toleune, vinilidiene chloride and more. A lot of these chemicals are not degradable and studies have shown, they may contaminate the blood stream, causing one to feel ill at ease while sleeping. The long term effect can bring about hormone disruption, problems with the lungs or breathing, organ damage and even cell damage.
