Chemistry. When you hear the word, maybe you think of your high school days of reciting the periodic table and mixing vials of various substances while your teacher anxiously supervised. Or maybe you skip the academic talk and just think of romantic chemistry--your favorite rom-com, your most memorable date or the one you wish you could forget. When thinking of chemistry in the bedroom, one’s mind immediately goes to, well, you know. But I’m not here to talk about that topic (sorry).
I’m here to talk about a chemistry that can ruin the good vibes in between the sheets. Your mattress may feel perfectly comfy (or it may have dips as intense as the Grand Canyon) but there’s more to a mattress than just what’s on the surface. If you sleep on a mainstream, non-organic mattress, chances are you’re sleeping among chemical flame retardants. When you’re snoozing, you’re also breathing in toxins that latch onto dust particles in your bedroom. That means you’re spending a third of your life with some seriously bad chemistry. Your bed feels a lot more crowded and a lot less relaxing and romantic now, doesn’t it?
Toxic chemicals don’t exactly give you that cozy feeling. Probably because they’re dangerous and can cause obesity, infertility and even cancer. It’s important for people to realize what they may be sleeping on because chemical flame retardants can have lasting negative effects. Chemically-treated mattresses off-gas, meaning those chemicals are floating in the air of your home, creating an unhealthy environment for you and your family that most are probably completely unaware of. Luckily, we have an alternative to these types of mattresses because we believe everyone should sleep safely and soundly.
