Why would somebody want an organic mattress vs a conventional mattress? There are several reasons. The most important is the chemical free aspect. Most conventional mattresses use a flame retardant call borate. The foam that is also used in these mattresses is petroleum based, and if cotton is used, it is usually treated with pesticides as well. There are many people with very sensitive allergies or asthma. People with these highly sensitive allergies can experience respiratory discomfort and problems caused by the odor from these chemicals which the average person cannot detect by smell. There has also has been scientific studies done that these chemicals used in conventional mattresses can be carcinogenic.
Many consumers are now looking for a healthier alternative and are beginning to research organic futon mattresses. There are hundreds of different futon mattresses on the market. A futon is simply a mattress that beds. It can be used on a futon sofa frame or a flat surface, floor or platform bed. Traditionally futon mattresses were stuffed with all cotton and still are today, however with advancement of technology and manufacturing, futons now come in all sorts of materials such as foam, latex, memory foam, innerspring and more. The task of finding an organic mattress in your local bedding store can be quite the challenge. They either don’t exist, or they are extremely pricey.
