This Non-Toxic Mattress is The Key to Better Beauty Sleep
Sleep is a key ingredient of any good skincare routine: While you catch your Zs your skin has the opportunity to repair and heal itself from the stresses of the day. And while you’re probably already nourishing your body with non-toxic skincare products, have you thought about the mattress that is supporting you all night as you sleep?
The Problem With Conventional Mattresses
Many conventional foam mattresses contain a whole bunch of nasty ingredients. The foam is often made from petroleum-based polyurethane, and different components are attached using chemical adhesives. These are susceptible to “off-gassing,” or emitting chemical odors over time, which can negatively impact the quality of your indoor air. Since many of us spend 90% of our time indoors, this is a big deal for our health and wellness.
As if that weren’t enough, many mattresses also include chemical flame retardants, which have been linked to many health problems, including cancer and infertility.
So, just as we say with convention beauty products that contain toxins, why take the risk? There is a better, safer, and still affordable option in Avocado Green Mattress, which was founded by husband and wife team Jeff and Alex D’Andrea in 2016.
What Makes Up a Non-Toxic Mattress
Avocado’s mattresses are safer and better for you. Their foam is made from natural Dunlop latex from sustainably harvested rubber trees. They also use certified organic cotton and replace conventional flame retardants with natural hydrated silica and untreated New Zealand wool.
A Mattress That’s Better for the Planet
Another thing we love about Avocado’s mattresses: They’re a better choice for the environment. These things are seriously made to last and come with a 25-year warranty! (Most traditional and memory foam mattresses have a much shorter lifespan, just 8 to 10 years.) And when the time comes to replace your Avocado Green Mattress, you’ll rest assured knowing it’s recyclable and biodegradable.
Still, “green” doesn’t end there. Avocado makes its products in the company’s carbon-neutral California factory, which is Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) certified.
At Follain, we admire Avocado Green Mattress’ commitment to the health of people and the planet—the same things that keep us motivated every day. And we think a green mattress and a green beauty routine are the perfect pair to help you make the most of your shut-eye.
