What is the disadvantage of a sprung mattress?


Some people prefer a sprung mattress for comfort and support. However, there is an argument that the air between the springs inside a sprung mattress is a perfect habitat for dust, microorganisms and insects since they are beyond the reach of cleaning. For anyone who suffers allergies a latex mattress is preferable since dust mites and other organisms will not survive the inner mattress.  Additionally, the springs of a sprung mattress will wear out, allowing your backbone to sag, creating tension in your muscles and disturbing your sleep.

Are natural mattresses more expensive than conventional mattresses?


A healthy mattress does not cost any more than the big name brand ‘therapeutic’, ‘lumbar support’, ‘sprung’ and ‘no roll together’ mattresses on the market.  Natural mattresses are filled only with the best nature has to offer - there are no synthetic substitutes bulking out your mattress which make you feel like you are getting more for your money, but in reality, you’re not.  The peace of mind you gain from knowing you and your family sleep on the healthiest bedding alternatives is priceless.

If you aren’t getting a good and thorough nights’ sleep every night, if you are sick regularly, physically and mentally drained, taking time off work, and having long term health issues – then consider what impact poor sleep is having on your life and calculate the cost of a new mattress in light of what these other problems may be costing you.

The life expectancy of an Innature mattress is 15-20 years which means that over this time your initial investment would work out to as little as 30 cents a day.  We believe that when you sleep better, you love life more so this is certainly a great investment to make.

Why are unbleached cotton and hemp fabric used in these mattresses and not pure organic cotton?


Innature uses 45% unbleached organic cotton and 55% hemp fabric to make natural mattress covers.  This combination of organic cotton and hemp is specially chosen for its robustness, anti-bacterial and mold resistance qualities which make it perfect for sleep products.

Why is bamboo a wonderful fibre for a mattress?


Bamboo is the ‘newest, old thing’ around!  Bamboo’s tight cellulose molecular structure, helps keep bacteria at bay.  This amazing fibre also has strong anti-bacterial properties which make it very durable and protect it from being eaten by pests or infected by pathogens.  Free from chemical additives, it’s completely biodegradable but also breathable and cool because the cross-section of a bamboo fibre is filled with various micro gaps.  This ensures excellent ventilation when compared to other fibres.
