Why Buy an Organic Mattress?

So you have done your research and you want an organic mattress that will last and that you can rest easy having in your home. Lifekind organic mattresses are made with natural, organic latex (natural rubber foam), certified organic wool and certified organic cotton.  All of Lifekind's mattresses are made by hand at our Eco-Factory™ – a GOTS-certified organic-sleep-products production facility located in northern California.

Our natural latex organic mattresses are made with layers of Soft, Medium or Firm latex foam rubber, in a wide range of custom combinations. We create personalized comfort for each sleeper—and for couples, we can customize each side. The core components are layers of natural latex foam. The casings are made of pure organic cotton with organic wool batting quilted inside. NO chemical flame retardants, pesticides, bleaches, dyes or other toxic finishes are used. We also offer a collection which combines pocket-coil technology with GOTS-certified organic cotton, GOTS-certified organic wool, and GOLS-certified natural latex to create an incredibly comfortable and more affordable certified organic mattress. 

Why Natural Rubber Latex?

You want an organic mattress that's also comfortable and durable.  Natural latex is responsive, pressure-relieving, resilient, and lasts for decades.  

Some facts about Natural Latex:

  • True natural latex, without synthetic latex or fillers blended in, is simply natural foam rubber.
  • Unlike most other foams, natural latex breathes, which discourages the buildup of moisture and heat in the mattress interior.
  • Latex does not transfer motion the way most conventional innersprings do, so you can say "goodnight" to bouncing in your partner's wake.
  • Most natural latex mattresses last as long as two or three traditional mattresses, while keeping their shape and wonderful resilience.

Conventional mattress foams and treated fabrics contain flame retardants or other toxic chemicals which offgas into the air, degrade into microscopic dust and can be inhaled. Close, consistent contact with conventional mattresses (6-10 hours nightly) adds up to significant long-term exposure to the chemicals they contain.

The most common foam, memory foam, is made primarily of polyurethane with various added chemicals.The Standard for Certified Purity™
