Natural Talalay Latex. The positive sleeping properties are unequaled.
This sleep system is made from Natural Talalay Latex; a milksap, hand-tapped from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree. Natural latex is a far superior material to metal coils, and petroleum oil based polyurethane foams for that matter, which is used as comfort layering in non-latex mattresses.
Why is latex better?
First, the cleanliness. This is not an oil based product, it is the milksap, from a tree. Latex is inherently anti-microbial, and mold resistant as well.
Secondly, the longevity. Latex mattresses last at least twice as long as comparable mattresses made from lesser materials and show much less body impression decades down the road.
Thirdly, the coolness & temperature regulation. Natural latex is a milksap, not a petroleum oil based man-made polyurethane foam. These poly-foams are what make up the softer top comfort layers on normal, non latex mattress. Oil based poly foams trap your body’s heat, so that you are in essence sleeping in a 98.6 degree sink of your own heat. In the cold/winter, poly foams become hard. Latex is not affected by such things. You will sleep much cooler in the summer, and much more comfortable in the winter.
And lastly, the quality. Natural Latex has an unrivaled buoyancy, which can only be explained as “sleeping on”, versus “sleeping in”. Pressure points, and the hammock effect experienced while sleeping on lesser materials simply falls away.
Certified Organic Cotton & Beeswax.
Cotton that is not certified organic can be laden with harmful chemicals. Organic cotton is cotton that has been outside third party certified to be free of synthetic pesticides, toxins, synthetic fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms. Instead, natural fertilizers are used, as are beneficial insects and innovative weeding techniques.
By definition, certified organic cotton means that there are none of the following used on the soil the cotton is grown in, within 50 miles of the field the cotton is grown in (to protect against run off, and chemicals leaching into to the soil), the plant itself, its growth process, its processing and manufacture, or the end distribution of the cotton;
No synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, gmo’s, carcinogenic, teratogenic, or mutagenic chemicals. No endocrine disruptors, degreasers, surfactants, non-biodegradable detergents, chlorine bleach, plastisols, or any other synthetic chemicals are used.
Above and beyond even this, our certified organic cotton fabric is infused with solid beeswax, making it an advanced temperature adaptive fabric. You will never sleep more comfortably.
CertiPUR-US Certified Copper Infused Anti-Microbial Soy Comfort Material
In the battle against harmful chemicals in mattresses, as discussed under the fire-retardant section above, the primary place where toxic chemicals are generally found in non-natural mattresses is in the fire retardant. That being said, the memory foam feel is quite nice. One can give up some amount of naturalness, for a certain feel, without being exposed to too many chemicals.
The Apricot offers that memory foam feel, mixed with the unrivaled buoyancy & qualities of natural Talalay latex, without all the toxicity of normal memory foam. It uses a certi-PUR certified (outside third party certification, which means the material is free from the nine heavy elements we typically worry about in poly foams), Copper infused (anti-microbial/bacterial/fungal, helps with circulation & temperature regulation), plant based poly foam to achieve this.
Enjoy the feeling of memory foam, without all the harmful chemicals.
Chemical Free (Non-Toxic) Fire Retardant.
In modern non-natural mattresses, there are a host of chemically unclean components. The most toxic of these, by far, are the chemical fire retardants used to make the mattresses pass fire safety standards. The multi-billion dollar chemical fire retardant industry writes its own regulations, and as such, these manufacturers do not have to disclose to you what chemicals they use to make their non-natural mattresses pass US fire retardant safety standards. That information is proprietary; the mattresses only have to pass the fire test. See for yourself, try to find out what chemicals are used in any non-natural mattress manufacturers fire retardant. It won’t happen.
We in the natural & organic mattress industry have to vacuum chamber test these non-natural mattresses ourselves, to let them off-gass, so that we can discern what chemicals are actually being used, and the results can be rather shocking. Pbde, tdccp, octa, tris, formaldehyde, bromine, fluorine, chlorine, antimony, melamine, and many more, just to name a few. As an example, a very popular memory foam mattress manufacturer you’ve heard of was recently tested. It was found to off-gas many chemicals, 62 of which were voc’s (volatile organic compounds), 9 of which are also known human cancer-causing carcinogens.
We have found carcinogens, developmental neurotoxins, endocrine disruptors, hormonal disruptors, & obesogens.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
At Mango Mattress, we use a 100% chemical free, natural, wood pulp based rayon fire barrier, so that you can rest assured that you, your sleeping environment, and your family, are safe from such harmful chemicals.
