Dormio Tranquility Mattress…wholesome and organic

Proudly Canadian

The Dormio Tranquility mattress is constructed to provide each sleeper with supreme comfort, long-lasting support and provide correct natural body alignment using healthy natural materials. The Tranquility mattress is built in layers of latex gold to provide flexibility. These layers can be moved to achieve different firmnesses. A thick layer of carded 100% Organic New Zealand wool quilted to 100% certified organic cotton removable cover to provide maximum moisture control acts as a natural fire retardant . Naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic, there is also no movement transferred from one sleeper to the next.

latex gold… Latex Gold is 100% biodegradable, hygienic, hypoallergenic, dust-free, contaminant-free and non-toxic, it has high resilience and strong elongation properties which help to enhance the performance over a long period of time. Latex Gold rubber is very porous and as the rubber is compressed and released, air is circulated around the material. The pin core construction promotes the flow of air through the mattress. Latex Gold is highly resilient and extremely durable, and has been manufactured for over 50 years. It is not uncommon to replace the cover of a mattress that is over 30 years old and find that the rubber is still in good condition.

100% Organic New Zealand wool… New Zealand sheep farming is recognised for its world-leading standards of farming integrity. Sheep are grazed on a variety of different pasture types, including hillsides which are unsuitable for other farming systems, and which allow for effective soil management and natural free-range grazing. Efficient land management and flock rotation ensure that the land will continue to enhance high quality wool production for generations to come. Wool is energy efficient as it requires very small amounts of energy to produce.

100% certified organic cotton… It takes roughly one-third of a pound of chemicals (pesticides and fertilizers) to grow enough cotton for just one T-shirt. We use only organically grown cotton.

What is memory foam?

Memory foam is polyurethane with additional chemicals increasing its viscosity and density. It is also often referred to as visco-elastic polyurethane foam.

Even though toxins can now be found in nearly all common household products; from carpets to microwaves, paints, couches and children’s clothing, many of these toxins accumulate in the body and are never expelled. Unfortunately, memory foam, the one used in today’s mattresses, also contains some toxins and may contribute to the level of toxins in our bodies.
When you sleep, your body regenerates and recharges itself. At this time, prolonged exposure to poisonous volatile organic compounds and toxic chemicals when your body is in this vulnerable state should not be taken lightly.

Unlike mattresses of 40+ years ago, mattresses today are manufactured with increased amounts of petroleum based compounds in the form of foams, plastics, and a variety of volatile chemicals, including flame retardants. Research suggests people can become ill by the repeated and continuous exposure to these low level chemicals during the sleep process. These chemicals are in fact evaporating from the materials used to make modern day mattresses. Health effects caused by petroleum chemical exposure can weaken or damage the immune and nervous system. Autoimmune disorders have also been linked with exposure to petroleum-based chemicals and have been found to be the underlying etiology of many common health problems today, such as soft tissue damage, arthritis, etc.
Some mattresses companies market themselves as using natural memory foam in their products. These foams are still petro-chemical based and can be just as dangerous to your health.
