There are many mattress companies out there that make numerous different mattresses from a number of different materials. Most of these are made from very toxic materials that can be harmful to our health. In researching for mattresses for my own family, we found out about this company that really reflects our beliefs in a non toxic product. This is how the company was started.
This is what the owner of the company has said about his reasons for starting Essentia. “I never thought I’d be in the mattress industry. It all started when a family member was diagnosed with cancer. Physicians made me aware of the toxins in everyday items like TVs, microwaves, couches and dashboards. My family had been in the latex foam business for years and supplied most major brands. I studied the industry and realized that mattresses were manufactured with poor quality components, filled with chemically derived foams treated with harsh chemicals and layered together with glue. In looking for alternatives I realized there weren’t any. I decided to research and developed something different. I tried offering this foam to major mattress brands but most weren’t interested because of the high cost. Those who did buy it only integrated an insignificant amount in order to promote the foam’s natural qualities. As I evaluated brand after brand I realized the industry wasn’t overly concerned about consumer health or product quality, just catch phrases and profit margins. That’s when I founded Essentia, more than a brand; a commitment to comfort and quality, without compromise.”
Their mattresses are made from Hevea Milk, Dunlop Latex, Organic Essential Oils, Natural Plant Extracts, and Liquid Latex and Acrylic Resin Adhesive.
Their mattresses don’t contain any adhesives. I had the chance to go to their showroom in Chicago this past weekend and it was well worth the trip. If you are in the market for a new bed please take a look at these great beds.
