Snoozel Green organic mattresses and pillows are made with natural materials like cotton, latex, and organic wool. These materials do not contain chemicals that can irritate your skin or respiratory system. They also offer the best support for a good night's sleep because of how they contour to your body type. If you have allergies like asthma or skin conditions such as eczema, the Snoozel Green organic mattress and pillow could be just the thing you need.
So why is an organic mattress and pillow good for your health? What is the science behind it? 100% organic products don't release any potentially noxious odours or irritants so they will be perfect for your respiratory system if you happen to have asthma or skin conditions such as eczema. According to a study done in 2006 by Dr. Joe Lstiburek - one of North America's leading building envelope experts- "a lot of what we've learned about indoor air quality is related to dust mites." Dust mites live on dead cells found in bedding material, carpets and upholstery etc and especially on products made from synthetic materials. Natural materials, like organic cotton and wool, however are an environment that dust mites cannot thrive. The largest dust mite is the house dust mite, which can survive and thrive for up to 20 years without food. Dust particles are mainly found indoors because people bring them into their homes on shoes or clothing, where they mix with skin cells that contain moisture from perspiration. This leads to perfect conditions for growing a variety of bacteria including those most commonly causing sinus infections such as Staphylococcus Aureus (which can also cause MRSA).
Organic cotton mattresses and pillows can eliminate breathing problems caused by asthma due to its natural fibres being hypoallergenic. Cotton is a natural material, unlike other artificial substances that can emit dangerous chemicals when the temperature rises. This means it won't release potentially toxic fumes like some of the newer materials such as memory foam and synthetic Latex.
Organic cotton also provides relief from skin conditions caused by contact with irritating fabrics or dyes in conventional mattresses and pillows due to its hypoallergenic properties. Organic treatments used on organic materials during production are designed not only for the environment but for people too — so your mattress and pillows will be kind to you whilst helping keep dust mites at bay.
A similar study to Dr. Lstiburek’s, in 2013 found that people who slept on organic mattresses had lower levels of airway inflammation than those sleeping on synthetic ones, with all participants reporting a better sleep quality.
Organic materials are natural by-products from plants grown without pesticides or other artificial fertilisers; they also don't contain any chemical additives during their production process - so there's no danger of toxic chemicals when heated. This means it won't release potentially toxic fumes like some of the newer materials such as memory foam and synthetic Latex so are better for you and the planet.
