As there are different types of mattress, including those that are presented and offered as “organic” when they are still synthetic and filled with chemically processed materials, it’s always important to set a criteria or come up with standards when picking out a good organic mattress. You have to be able to tell by researching about it, or reading the labels properly, or outright asking its distributor about the mattress’ composition. It’s your right as a consumer to ask.
A good organic mattress must be:
- durable, but flexible.
- resilient to wear and tear
- doesn’t contain toxic materials, and will not off gas
- doesn’t not contain any synthetic materials or fiber
- doesn’t have any moisture build up, nor dust and allergens.
- should be warm to use during winters
- should be able to keep cool during summers
- has anti-bacterial properties
Before settling on one mattress, take time and look around first, as there are several options being offered, especially when most companies have more than one model for their organic mattress. Some even provide special features that can be more helpful when you try to achieve a good night’s sleep.
Give every mattress at least 15 to 20 minutes of scrutiny when you’re out shopping, as this is one investment you would have to consider really well.
