Does anyone have experience with buying an organic mattress online? We know about Organic Grace and Lifekind, but we don't know which has better mattresses or how to choose. We're looking for a queen size fairly firm mattress if anyone has any specific suggestions. Thank you!

My friend owns this business and they make the mattresses themselves. Also make futons. Lots of integrity. I'm sure you could call and talk to them and answer your questions.

Good luck!

Hi Escher,

 

Essentia is another option. www.myessentia.com

 

We invented a natural latex foam than has all the pressure relief of memory foam. See how latex compares to memory foam.

 

Other very good brand i would recommend is Savvy Rest.

Essentia makes polyurethane base memory foam covered with Kevlar, which is please with plastic fibers and can be cancerous. We have 100% organic and fully customizable mattresses from Obasan. I have the firmness I want on my side and same thing for my partner. The mattresses are fully certified organic and are all made by hand. Very luxurious. Www.obasan.ca

It is great to hear from lots of people selling mattresses (and thanks for the suggestion, Peggy), but is there anyone who has actually personally bought an organic mattress online?

Yes, I have! 

 

A few years ago I bought a natural latex, wool topped and organic cotton wrapped children's mattress (crib/toddler size) from Dax online.  I was very happy with the mattress quality and had no problems with the company.  At the time it did take a while to get the mattress - like 3-4 weeks or so I think? - because they were at least then made to order.  Hubby and I ended up buying something similar for ourselves locally, but if we didn't have a store like that, I'd definitely buy from them again (at that time, our local store didn't carry the size we wanted, which is why we bought online).

 

This is them:

They are expensive but super nice and worth the money!  HTH

As retailers of organic bedding products including both adult and juvenile mattresses we would not recommend buying a mattress online unless you can speak to somebody in person.  It is important for your retailer to understand what you need in a mattress.  An organic mattress can cost you anywhere from $1,900 and up for a Queen size mattress and you spend 1/3 of your life on it.  A good organic mattress retailer takes pride in their products and would want you to have a mattress that is right for you, especially if you are purchasing from a store in which you can't touch and lay on the mattress.  You don't have to call our store, but I do recommend that you work through either an actual store or an online retailer in which you can talk to an honest person who wants to help you.  Good luck and I hope you find what you are looking for.

I think you should read some review about best seller mattress, then you can choose the best one for your family.

I see this thread is old, but if anyone is still looking I have purchased an organic mattress online from Naturepedic. I had it shipped to Canada as well. They sell for baby, children, and adults. We were very happy with our purchase even though it was quite pricey due to what we were getting.

What’s NOT In a Naturepedic Baby/Kids 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 food-grade polyethylene and organic cotton. In addition, Naturepedic eliminates all fire retardant chemicals, perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), and antibacterial biocides.


ALLERGENIC MATERIALS
Naturepedic avoids the use of materials with well known allergenic properties (i.e. latex and wool) for all its baby and children's products. According to the FDA, a product containing latex cannot be labeled as “hypoallergenic.” Coir (or coconut husks) also contains latex as a bonding agent. Wool intrinsically contains lanolin and certain alcohols known to have allergenic properties. Other allergens originate not with the wool itself, but with the chemical treatments applied. When it comes to babies, we believe a more precautionary approach is appropriate.


MORE SPECIFICALLY

NO Flame Retardants or Flame Retardant Barriers

NO Memory Foam or Other Forms of Polyurethane Foam

NO Soybean or Biobased Foam (polyurethane foam with soybean oil mixed in)

NO Latex, Wool or Other Commonly Allergenic Materials

NO Polyurethane Coated Nylon or Damask Fabrics

NO Antibacterial Treatments or Biocides

NO Glues or Adhesives

NO GMO cotton or other GMO fibers

NO Shoddy Insulator Pads
