What Are the Benefits of Using Organic Mattress Toppers?
There are many reasons why you may want to consider buying a topper to improve the comfort of your organic mattress:
- Mattress toppers make your mattress extra comfortable with added four inches of additional comfort.
- If you use a firm topper on a soft mattress you may achieve the perfect level of firmness, it also goes the other way round.
- A topper protects your mattress from moisture and wear
- You can add a mattress topper to just one side of the bed, so you can enjoy a different level of firmness than your partner
- Organic mattress toppers don’t release toxic chemicals into the air helping you maintain the healthy air quality in your bedroom
Are There any Cons?
Using mattress toppers can also have some disadvantages, including:
- Latex mattress toppers may retain heat and decrease the breathability of your mattress. It’s especially important if you tend to sweat or overhead at night. In that case, choose a wool or cotton mattress topper instead.
- If your mattress is in a bad shape, buying a topper may make it a bit more comfortable, but it will not solve the problem.
- Toppers tend to be a bit smaller than mattresses, so if you like to sleep at the edges of a mattress a topper may become uncomfortable.
When buying an organic mattress topper make sure it’s Greenguard GOLD certified, GOTS certified or OEKO-TEX certified. This way you can be sure that it’s made from organic materials for 100% natural sleep.
If you’re already using an organic mattress, green mattress toppers are a must. Conventional toppers will release harmful chemicals into the air which can impact your health and sleep quality. So an organic topper is a way to go if you value your health and comfort.
