Why Naturepedic for You

Discover Better Sleep and the Benefits of an Organic Mattress

Sleep is central to a healthy and happy life. Research consistently shows that a good night’s sleep helps the body fight disease and maintain balance with its surroundings, making it one of the most important factors in overall health. A good nights sleep also affects your relationships and productivity, helping you live life to its fullest.

So how does one achieve this sleep nirvana? Well, obviously comfort is important. So is back support and proper spinal alignment. But there's another issue that's often overlooked - the materials you surround yourself with while you sleep. These materials truly make a difference.

Sleep is a time for our bodies to rejuvenate and heal themselves. Many mattress materials used today contain chemicals that are foreign to our bodies and are quite "unnatural." The mainstream approach has been to leverage technology to construct foams and other materials with "improved" comfort characteristics. These new technologies are indeed comfortable, but they come with a price - the introduction of new chemicals into our sleep environment.

We believe that natural materials are at the core of superior comfort and support. Mother Nature provides us with the best unrivaled materials that are actually in harmony with our bodies. Would you rather sleep on a pile of chemicals (literally) or be surrounded by the finest organic materials Mother Nature has to offer? Would your immune system rather be fighting foreign chemicals while you sleep or healing itself instead?

Every night on your Naturepedic mattress is like a holiday from a hectic and stressful day. Your sleep environment should also be a safe haven from all the chemicals you're bombarded with on a daily basis. This is our mission and goal. We trust you will receive unconditional love from your Naturepedic mattress night after night for many years. Your best night awaits you!

Watch How an Organic Mattress is Made

What’s In a Naturepedic Organic Mattress?


Certified Organic Cotton
Organic cotton is the purest form of cotton, grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, or GMO’s (genetically modified organisms). In mattresses, organic cotton is a healthier alternative to foams (which are chemically treated). Naturepedic uses only U.S. grown and certified organic cotton filling in its mattresses.


Certified Organic Wool
Wool wicks away moisture, provides natural fire protection, and offers temperature regulation, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. GOTS certified organic wool facilitates healthy, well treated sheep and the elimination of harmful chemicals in the processing of the wool.


Organic Latex
After harvesting from the rubber tree, the latex sap is cured into a comfortable luxurious foam. Unlike synthetic and even all-natural blends, we only source our latex from reputable certified organic suppliers, ensuring purity, fair labor practices and support for healthy farming to protect our planet's latex forests. The finished latex is certified to the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS).


Steel Innerspring
Naturepedic uses only the highest quality innersprings available. Steel springs provide heavy duty support without any health or allergy concerns. In particular, our continuous coil innerspring provides stable, motion-transfer reducing support that is both comfortable and supportive. 6 gauge border wire adds heavy duty edge support for long lasting durability.


Organic Cotton Encased Coils - Support
The coils in our luxury models are individually wrapped in certified organic cotton fabric and hand assembled for unmatched quality. This method ensures isolation of movement and pressure point relieving comfort that contours to your body. Designed to provide a strong and supportive base. Made in our GOTS certified organic facility. Produced on our own equipment in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.


Organic Cotton Encased Coils - Comfort
Also individually wrapped and hand assembled in certified organic cotton fabric, this 2" layer adds body contouring comfort for a softer, pressure point relieving feel in our luxury models. Produced on our own equipment in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.


Fire Protection - Done The Right Way
The primary filling material used in most mattresses is polyurethane foam - a highly flammable petroleum-based material. In fact, the National Association of State Fire Marshals refers to it as “solid gasoline.” Due to its high flammability, polyurethane foam is typically treated or wrapped with fire retardant chemicals. Some of these chemicals introduce health and toxicity concerns. In fact, most manufacturers don't even disclose their fire retardant ingredients.


At Naturepedic, we don't like questionable chemicals, and we certainly don't like fire retardant chemicals! We consider the best form of fire protection to be superior product design that avoids the need for these chemicals in the first place. Organic cotton, for example, is a far superior filling material and is significantly less flammable. Through extensive research and creative product design, we've eliminated the need for fire retardant chemicals and flame retardant barriers in our products. This unique and innovative approach provides a simple and elegant solution that meets all Federal and State flammability standards. After all, the safest chemicals are none at all!



What’s NOT In a Naturepedic Mattress?


Questionable Chemicals
Naturepedic follows the precautionary principle and eliminates questionable chemicals in the first place. Naturepedic also avoids the use of certain conventional mattress materials such as vinyl/PVC and polyurethane foam in favor of materials such as organic cotton, organic latex rubber and organic wool. In addition, Naturepedic eliminates perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), questionable fire retardant chemicals, and antibacterial biocides.
