Why Should I Buy a Dormio Organic Mattress? (7 Key Reasons)
When it comes to your bedding, there’s only one-way to go:
With public awareness about chemicals in consumer products increasing, many people are already aware of the health implications of organic food and farming. We even buy organic toothpaste and household cleaners.
But what about your bedroom? Given that rest is key to proper functioning of our organs and we spend so much time sleeping, it’s important to choose a mattress that’s both safe and comfortable.
7 Benefits of Choosing a Dormio Organic Mattress
A Dormio organic mattress is made using all-natural materials. That means it’s free from harmful chemicals, making it a safe option for babies, who typically have skin that’s more sensitive than adults. It’s also breathable and keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter.
Let’s discuss some of the benefits of sleeping on a Dormio organic mattress.
1. It’s Safe for Babies
The average newborn (up to six months) sleeps 16-20 hours a day. That means they’ll have a lot more exposure to their bedding than adults.
Opting for Dormio certified organic mattresses, sheets, blankets and pillows reduces your baby’s exposure to airborne toxins. Many bedding products (particularly mattresses) contain harmful chemicals known for disrupting hormones and causing cancer. By choosing our organic, non-toxic bedding materials, you can provide your child with a safe, chemical-free environment in which to sleep.
Dormio organic cotton fibres are softer than regular cotton because they’re made from all-natural materials. Conventional cotton, on the other hand, is often drenched in chemicals that make them hard, rough and uncomfortable. Using synthetic crib mattresses, sheets and blankets can lead to your baby becoming irritated and restless.
What’s more, since our naturally-procured materials are soft and chemical-free, they won’t be at risk of developing skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema.
In the end, the best way to keep them cozy is to buy an organic mattress.
2. It Adjusts Body Temperature
All three styles of Dormio organic mattresses – 100% natural latex, and organic wool and cotton – regulate body temperature. These natural materials wick away body moisture and help you stay warm in winter and cool in summer. This results in a stable heart rate and optimal skin temperature to allow for a great sleep.
Wool in particular is a natural temperature-regulating material. Its tiny pores absorb perspiration to help you stay cool and comfortable. It can easily hold up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp or sweaty. It also acts as a natural insulator in winter to keep you warm. The result is sound sleep, despite seasonal variations in temperature.
3. It’s Naturally Resistant to Fire
Most synthetic mattresses contain petroleum-based chemicals and fire-retardant barriers. These can off-gas, exposing you and your family to dangerous levels of toxins. Hyperactivity, memory impairment, and fatigue are some of the most common effects of these chemicals. They’ve also been linked to early puberty, glucose sensitivity and weight gain.
Dormio organic mattresses are free of such chemicals and are completely safe. However, they still comply with federal safety regulations due to their natural fire-resisting properties. You can rest assured knowing that you’re protected from fire hazards as well as harmful chemicals.
4. It Protects You from Dust Mites and Allergies
Allergy and respiratory problems are often linked to the harsh chemicals and pesticides used in the manufacture of conventional mattresses. Dormio organic mattresses, on the other hand, are completely pesticide- and chemical-free, and, thus, hypoallergenic. The organic cotton used in our mattresses and other bedding products contain none of the toxins or metals typically included in the dyes used to colour regular bedding essentials.
They’re also quite resistant to mould and mildew since natural fabrics don’t absorb or retain as much moisture from the surrounding air as synthetic materials. Airborne allergens simply can’t thrive inside Dormio organic mattresses. They’re also mostly impervious to dust mites because these microscopic insects can neither live on their surface nor permeate their strong cell structure. Their antifungal and bacterial qualities are also beneficial to those with allergies.
Although there’s no way to 100% protect against dust and allergens, our mattresses provide a good level of protection. If you deal with asthma, dust allergies or any other respiratory issue, our organic cotton or latex mattresses are your best choice. They’ll help you breathe easier through the night.
5. It Absorbs Motion
Superior motion absorption is another great advantage of Dormio organic mattresses. If your partner tosses and turns in their sleep, our mattresses will absorb their movement and won’t transfer it to your side of the bed. In this way you’ll be able to enjoy the same comfort and cradling you do when you sleep alone.
6. It Relieves Pressure
Synthetic coir mattresses are usually hard. Instead of taking the shape of your body, they can put pressure on your spine, knees, hips, back and shoulders. Losing firmness and resilience is one of the biggest issues with regular coil mattresses. Over time, this may injure your spine, back and/or neck.
Dormio natural latex and memory foam mattresses uniformly distribute body weight across the bed, thus eliminating unnecessary pressure and body ache. Firm yet bouncy, they contour to your sleeping posture, relieve pressure on joints, and bounce back more quickly than traditional coils. Unlike other mattresses, you don’t need to flip your Dormio organic mattress regularly to return it to its original shape.
7. It Protects the Environment
The main ingredient in natural latex mattresses is rubber tree sap, a.k.a. rubber serum. Once the serum is collected, the tree’s bark heals and grows back quickly. Rubber trees can yield latex for up to 30 years.
Dormio’s organic latex mattresses are completely biodegradable and can be easily recycled. In fact, we use old natural latex mattresses to produce new ones.
Our organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have only a mild environmental impact. No toxic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers are used during the manufacturing process, and it will easily break down and decompose into the earth.
The filler used in our organic wool mattresses is obtained from sheep using cruelty-free methods. It’s also 100% biodegradable and safer for the environment than toxins, which contribute to global pollution and destruction.
Considering their many advantages, Dormio organic mattresses are worth the investment. While an innerspring or coil mattress may be less expensive, the long-term benefits of our mattresses are obvious. Make a wise choice and experience them for yourself.
