A hypoallergenic mattress is designed to provide a safe and healthy sleeping environment for allergy sufferers. The material is free of any perfumes, dyes, or chemicals that can be found in traditional mattresses. These materials often cause allergic reactions and are also thought to contribute to other health problems such as asthma, eczema, sinusitis and migraines. However, when you buy an organic mattress from Snoozel Green they are made with natural materials which means they are also hypoallergenic. Here are some of the frequently asked questions we get asked about our mattress:
Do organic mattresses give you a healthy sleep?
The Snoozel Green organic, hypoallergenic mattress will definitely reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals, synthetic materials and the ‘off gassing’ they can emit. However, to have a healthier sleep, a lot more factors like a good bedtime routine and sleep schedule should be considered, like good sleep hygiene. Sleeping on the right mattress is just one part of healthy sleep. To get better rest, you should also make sure to go to bed and wake up at regular times; have your meals in line with these hours as well as exercise regularly. And finally, try not to drink (especially alcohol) or eat too close to bedtime to ensure you get the optimum period of rest and recuperation — unfortunately a mattress on it’s own won’t give you a great night’s sleep!
Are organic mattresses durable?
The Snoozel Green organic, hypoallergenic mattress is incredibly durable. Why? Because it is made with a layer of natural latex which, in a mattress, means it will typically have a life span of 15-20 years whereas a mass-produced, memory foam mattress will last for around seven years. So, by our maths we can confidently claim an organic mattress is twice as durable.
What makes a mattress organic?
An organic mattress can be considered organic if it is made from 100% organic materials. For example, materials like natural latex and organic cotton and organic wool, like the Snoozel Green mattress.
Why are organic mattresses hypoallergenic?
An organic mattress can be good for your skin because the material is hypoallergenic and allergen-free meaning it doesn’t trigger allergies as much as other mattresses which contain chemicals from synthetic materials such as polyurethane foam. And, because an organic mattress is made from natural materials it’s safe to say that for allergic sufferers they can often find relief.
The hypoallergenic qualities you get from our mattress will also be found also in our organic pillow and toppers. If you have any other questions around the health benefits of our products, please do get in touch.
