The Duet offers the support and resilient sleeping experience of an innerspring, but without the metal. Its specially designed five-zoned, sculpted surface layers reduce pressure-point discomfort and increase air circulation, while the middle layer provides the stability of a traditional European-style natural rubber mattress. Completely metal-free, this organic mattress’s natural rubber layers are covered on all sides with our durable, double-stitched quilted cover made of Naturally Safer® pure wool and certified organic cotton.

Hopefully, you’re spending a solid 7-9 hours in your bed every night, which is likely way more time than you’ll ever spend in the kitchen or bathroom. This means that if your mattress does contain harmful toxins, you’ll be more exposed to them than you ever would toxins in your kitchen! For example, research has shown that the chemicals that leech out from non-organic mattresses can build up in the body through dermal absorption—to levels as high as 63 times the EPA safety limit!

Great post and list of organic crib mattresses.

Why did you start Naturepedic Organic Mattresses?

What this all means, is that typical mattresses have been required to be coated in toxins for the last decade or so. When the ruling calling for this new safety process was made, it cited research that concluded health concerns surrounded the use of toxic flame retardants, but the risk was insignificant. Modern research has shown these chemicals can be very toxic, and they can build up in your body to harmful levels. In short—your mattress may be making your sick, and the only way to avoid such a predicament is to get yourself a naturally-made or organic mattress.

Organic latex mattresses have a much longer life expectancy than synthetic mattresses because they do not break down as quickly. Organic latex mattresses are made of organic natural textiles that are durable, flexible, and long-lasting. Organic wool, for example, is able to be stretched up to 50% when wet and 30% when dry and still bounce back to its original shape when stress is released due to the inherent crimp of wool fiber molecules. The flexibility of wool fibers make them more durable. A wool fiber can be bent more than 20,000 times without breaking. The natural elasticity of wool makes woolen fabrics resistant to tearing. The chemical structure of wool also prevents it from compressing. Like wool, organic cotton is also known for its extreme durability (think about all of your cotton clothes that have lasted forever, and multiply it by an organic growing and manufacturing process that produces dense quilts which are made specifically to last you a lifetime). Our amazing quality organic latex latex mattresses will last for 20 years or more.
