Do you really need a showroom to test a mattress?

Buying a mattress without trying it first can be overwhelming and lead to anxiety and apprehension. But when you really think about it, going to a store and testing a few beds for 30 minutes or so really doesn’t give you a true idea of how you’ll like sleeping on it every night. As time goes by, you may realize you want something a little firmer or softer. Overall, if you’re not happy with a mattress purchase it ultimately comes down to the comfort, not the mattress itself.

CozyPure mattresses have zippers so you can access the inner components and “tweak” to your liking, whether it’s 6 months or 6 years later. In addition to that feature, all mattresses have reverse-flip comfort so the bed is a little firmer on the other side, meaning right out of the box you have two firmness options. Need it softer? We have top-of-bed accessories such as toppers, or depending on the model you choose, you can also add softer latex layers inside the mattress itself… or both!

Our team is ready to help you if you should ever need to modify the comfort of your bed. Because our mattresses are built with SOLID natural latex from top to bottom and edge to edge (no foams or coils to break down), a CozyPure mattress can last for decades with proper care. Over that time your comfort needs may change, so it’s great to have options to adjust and customize to your liking as you age.

We designed our mattresses to help you feel more confident in purchasing a mattress without trying it first, because once you sleep on a CozyPure, we can work with you should you need to change anything at any time. Our most popular customizable mattress is the 10″ Natural Comfort Kiss, which features the most options.

If you’re in the Hampton Roads area, we have a showroom too and would love to see you… so please stop by, say HI and have a test rest on our beds at 2308 Granby Street, Norfolk, VA

Sleep Organic

Are you ready to SLEEP ORGANIC?

Sleep is so much more than just a great mattress… it’s about creating a healthy sanctuary where you can retreat and sleep deep every night. At CozyPure, we’ve got you covered from head to toe with natural or GOLS organic latex mattresses and all the organic bedding goodies to cuddle-up and sleep organic.

SUSTAINABLE. RENEWABLE. NATURAL.
sleep organic the way nature intended

sleep organic

What does it mean to “sleep organic”?
So many conventional mattresses and bedding found in traditional stores, as well as online bed-in-a-box websites, are made from chemical-based foams, polyesters, and other synthetic blends, with additional fire retardants added. When you “sleep organic” the mattresses and bedding are made with organic and natural materials from nature’s ingredients, without the use of harmful toxins or chemicals.

Here at CozyPure, we’ve been pioneers in the industry, offering organic home and sleep products since 1991, way before other companies jumped on the trend (see tomorrowsworld.com, our original name and flagship catalog). With more than 25 years under our belt, we can provide you with the experience, knowledge, service and quality you should expect when you purchase a new sleep system, especially if you’re looking for natural and organic options.

“Sleep organic” is a generic term used often in the industry to describe organic sleep products. Back in spring of 2014, the dot.organic domains became available, so of course we purchased the website sleep.organic as an opportunity to continue our efforts to showcase our organic sleep products. We were the first company in America to offer a large selection of organic bedding, shipped nationally, direct to the consumer for over two decades, so it made sense for us to secure our position in the market as manufacturers that help customers sleep organic with our organic sleep products!

We have everything from mattresses to pillows, comforters, blankets, linens, and baby items. And if you’re not quite ready for a mattress, we have toppers you can add on your existing bed.

So if you’re ready to sleep organic, give us a call at 800-229-7571 or visit our sleep.organic website to learn more!

How the CozyPure® Contour Pillow Changed My Life!

Purely sensational headline? Not to me! It’s the truth. If you’ve ever woken up with a stiff neck, you know how that stiffness and discomfort can affect your whole body, all day. Imagine waking up each and every day like that, for years! It had gotten so bad that one morning I woke with my head actually laying on my shoulder, the muscles in such a tight spasm that I could not lift my head up.

Prior to that episode, in the early 1990’s, I tried many remedies, not the least of which was a series of expensive (and toxic) thermal foam pillows, at well over $100 each, with no improvement. I finally went to a neurologist and began receiving botulinum toxin (Botox) shots into the muscles of my neck. I took these shots for years and it helped, but it was painful and expensive.

When the stiffness and discomfort returned, I was about ready to go back to the expensive, painful botox shots to avoid the crippling spasms. As it happens, I was a new employee at CozyPure® and learning how quality, deep sleep improves your whole heath, and ironically, Cheryl was beginning to prototype a new contour pillow and looking for feedback. When she heard about my neck issues, she asked if I would do the testing.

LaNoodle-Contour copy

The first night I was immediately impressed by the comfort and support under my neck. It’s important to know that I am primarily a side sleeper, and as I slept on it, I realized that other qualities of the pillow were also helping my comfort. The contour in the center not only provided a gentle curve that was supportive, but was also easily compressible and adjustable for my neck. Also the hollow of the contour allowed my ear to rest without causing any numbness from the pressure of my head against the pillow surface. In addition, my head was supported perfectly, so my neck didn’t curve downward.

This pillow was a revelation for me! With my neck aligned in it’s natural, neutral position, the stiffness and discomfort were drastically reduced. Now I wake up each day with my neck freely able to turn from side to side. My friends and family have commented that my head is sitting straighter on my shoulders, and I’ve noticed it myself in pictures.

My neck problem is a neurological one for which there is no permanent remedy. I had been resigned to the fact that I would periodically have to undergo the botox treatments for the rest of my life. Instead now, I sleep comfortably all night, and am able to function normally, with my head straight and movable… rehabilitated without botox shots!

It’s been over three years of comfort and blissful sleep because the CozyPure® Contour Pillow changed my life, and I am so grateful!

UNDERCOVER: KILLING US SOFTLY. A look at the ingredients inside mattress components

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT… AND SLEEP.
Besides food, our mattress and bedding are probably the most intimate products we use everyday. Not only are we up-close and personal with our sleep products, keep in mind we spend a 1/3 of our lives sleeping.

Collectively that’s a solid four months every year we spend in bed. Because we rarely give it thought, most of us are more concerned about the food we put in our mouth rather than the pillow we have up against our nose for eight hours every night.

MEMORY FOAM
Memory foam is a petroleum-based polyurethane with additional unregulated “proprietary” chemicals which increase the viscosity and density of the foam. The proprietary formula is what “sucks you in” as you lay helplessly trapped inside a squishy sink-hole of chemicals.

MemoryFoam

A class action suit has been filed in California courts alleging that Tempurpedic’s memory foam mattresses contain harmful VOCs. They believe the company has minimized the problem when advertising their products by stating that the odors will dissipate and that products are VOC-free, when formaldehyde and other odors may continue to be released for months. To date, there’s been no resolution; the suit is still active.

THE CLAIM ON THE ATTORNEY’S WEBSITE states that formaldehyde, a strong VOC and known carcinogen, has been identified in laboratory testing of Tempurpedic products.

Manufacturers are not legally required to disclose the chemicals in mattresses.

Memory foam can help reduce pressure points which is why it’s a popular choice for mattresses and pillows, however its low resiliency doesn’t offer total full-body support for your entire body and heavier parts of your body will sink in more. The deeper you sink into the mattress, the more likely you’ll “sleep hot.” It should also be noted that the temperature of your bedroom can lead to the mattress becoming “too soft” or “too hard.” Most of these attributes are contributed directly to the chemical composition used to make memory foam.

DON’T BE FOOLED BY SOY-FOAM
Consumer awareness is growing and chemical manufacturers are developing marketing gimmicks which fool consumers into believing certain foams are safer, healthier and eco-friendly.

soyfoam

Take for example soy-based or bio-based foam. What they don’t tell you is that the foam contains very little soy. In fact, it is more accurate to call it polyurethane based foam with just a little soy added for marketing purposes. In fact, to date, the highest percentage of soy used in foam is only 20%. Since polyurethane foam is made by combining two main ingredients — a polyol and an isocyanate — in approximate equal parts, “20% soy based” translates to a mere 10% of the foam’s total volume and 90% as polyurethane.

POLYURETHANE FOAMS AND FIRE RETARDANTS
Large amounts of unregulated chemicals can be found in almost all synthetic foams (including soy-foam). The basic ingredients include polyols, isocyanates, blowing agents, and other additives including flame retardants. Although PBDEs have finally been phased out due to documented health hazards, new alternative chemicals are now being used in their place during the manufacture of flexible polyurethane foam. In addition, many fabrics are coated with both stain-resistant chemicals and flame retardant chemicals.

According to a recent EPA report released in August of 2015, most of these newer chemicals still have “limited data” with notes such as: “There is uncertainty due to lack of data for this substance. XYZ is estimated to have uncertain potential for carcinogenicity based on analogy to a closely related confidential analog and professional judgment; carcinogenic effects cannot be ruled out.”

Most exposure to flame retardants occurs after the chemicals migrate out of a product’s foam and settle into household dust, which then enter our bodies. The chemicals are constantly dispersing into the air, then settling. Exposure comes primarily from ingesting contaminated dust.

“Additive flame retardants are expected to be more mobile during the consumer use phase, and have been widely identified in air and house dust, supporting the idea that additive flame retardants can mobilize from a plastic or foam into the local micro-environment.”
-EPA Report 8/15

Mattresses made with foams that have the CertiPUR® label are marketed as a safer foam with a certification from “The Alliance for Flexible Polyurethane Foam”. The Alliance is made up of foam manufacturers who certify their own foam to their own standards.

One such standard is the foam is made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP Tris flame retardants. PBDEs  have been phased out and Chlorinated Tris is banned in many states. The chemical industry is replacing the banned FRs with newer, untested chemicals.

According to Heather Stapleton, Ph.D. in environmental chemistry and authority figure on the toxicity of flame retardants, “The (Certipur) label… is simply an advertisement for the Certipur program. This is a program developed by US polyurethane foam manufacturers to demonstrate environmental stewardship. It means that the foam used in that product has been tested for several known toxins including VOCs, metals and a few flame retardants. But the product can certainly still contain a flame retardant and have the Certipur label. There are many (FR chemicals) in use on the market today that are not tested in the Certipur program and for which we have concerns about health effects.”

certifpur“We don’t know as much about the health effects of replacement flame retardants,” according to Stapleton, “but a few studies have shown that these new chemicals may also disrupt hormone function.

CozyPure® doesn’t use polyurethane foam, soy-foam, memory foam, chemical flame retardants or treated fabrics. Our natural rubber latex is wrapped inside organic cotton quilted to wool which passes the Open Flame Federal Regulation. Wool self-extinguishes and doesn’t burn black toxic smoke when ignited. Why toss and turn all night worrying about unknown chemicals and flame retardants when you can sleep soundly on a mattress made exclusively from organic and natural ingredients?

 

SYNTHETIC LATEX, BLENDED LATEX, NATURAL LATEX
Synthetic latex (SBR) is derived mainly from the industrial chemicals styrene and butadiene. These copolymers are emulsified, and other chemical agents are added as stabilizers for polymerization and vulcanization.

Natural latex rubber (NR) is derived using 100% of the milk from the hevea brasiliensis rubber tree. Additional ingredients (less than 5% combined) include soda ash, zinc and soap which are whipped together with the rubber milk. The frothy mixture is then poured into a pan and baked — just like a cake!

100-natural-latex

Most latex offered in mattresses is either 100% synthetic or a blend of 80% synthetic and 20% natural. Manufacturers, like CozyPure®, who specialize in organic and natural materials offer only 100% natural latex rubber mattresses, with no synthetics, fillers or blends.

Trying to determine what kind of latex is in a mattress can be very difficult for consumers because of confusing wording or phrasing. For instance terms like “pure latex” many times refers to 100% synthetic man-made chemical latex because it is pure (solid) latex. Terms such as “made from natural latex” often refers to blended versions that have only a portion of natural, hence they can say “made from” even if it’s only made from 20% natural. Confusing right? We agree. And trying to find the correct answers, can be challenging.

Unfortunately most salespeople, especially in larger retail stores, often don’t know the difference so there’s a huge probability you’ll receive inaccurate information (we know because we’ve visited most of them). Be aware also, that many retailers will label a mattress as being a latex mattress even if it has as little as 1” of latex in its construction.

gols-organic-latex
Organic Latex Rubber will have the certification, for example the CozyPure organic latex shown above features the GOLS label.

If you’re not sure about the latex in a certain mattress, ask to see the certifications or check the law label. To find mattresses made only from solid 100% natural latex rubber, the best bet is a smaller manufacturer who specializes in using only natural materials, like CozyPure®.

Making it in America

A message from Cheryl Hahn, CozyPure CEO & Founder Once upon a time, America was a strong leader in the manufacturing industry, which created millions of jobs across the country. Outsourcing overseas for cheap labor gained popularity in the late 1970’s and has accelerated over the past few decades to the point where almost every product we buy is made in another country. But there are a few companies determined to keep it made in the USA. CozyPure® is one of them.

Our “Back of House” team

Centuries ago, nearly everything was made by hand. It’s almost a lost art to cut fabric with scissors, hand-tuft with needles and fill pillows by hand, when all this can be done by automated machines that mass produce hundreds of products a day. Our “Back-of-House” artisans craft products made-to-order, just for you. Their skilled workmanship using natural materials is a distinct process, so each item is unique. diane

ORGANIC COMFORT MADE FRESH DAILY with Farm Fresh Ingredients

Organic Comfort Made Fresh Daily with Farm Fresh ingredients

NATURAL LATEX RUBBERRubberTree_Milk_copy

SUPERIOR MATTRESS MATERIAL In 1931, the world’s first latex mattress was made. The features of not having to be flipped, staying fresh, responsive, supportive and keeping its shape made the mattress a huge success.

PROVEN TO PROVIDE HEALTHIER SLEEP The year 1954, latex foam is proven to contain exceptionally high anti-bacterial properties by Dr. Theo Lammers from the Institute of Hygiene Gutenburg University, making it the hygienic ideal for mattresses, superior to all other materials: unsurpassed in comfort and support, exceptional durability, stays cool, and is the healthiest choice due to its high anti-bacterial and allergy-free properties.

IDEAL FOR ASTHMA AND RESPIRATORY DISORDERS Further work in 1956 by Drs Fuchs & Gronemeyer at the Asthma Clinic, concluded, “the advantages of latex foam mattresses have been outlined by health and surgical authorities and the bacteriostatic (capable of killing bacteria), as well as fungus and mite resistant properties of latex material found by Lammers is confirmed.”
Throughout the decades, the cost of this premium material made it more expensive for manufacturers to produce and consumers often didn’t want to buy this higher priced option, thus latex mattresses were soon overshadowed by beds made with synthetic batting and petroleum foams placed over innerspring coils.

BOUNCING BACK In 1991, our flagship mail order catalog, Tomorrow’s World, was one of the first companies to offer a selection of natural latex mattresses made with organic cotton and wool. Consumers are beginning to understand the value equation of their purchases and realize that investing in a quality latex mattress will pay for itself many times over the lifetime of use it provides.

DECEPTIONS The popularity of latex mattresses comes with a price to consumer research. Many “so called” latex mattresses often only contain a small layer surrounded by foam and/or coils. Some “natural” latex really only contains a percentage of natural. Even materials such as “organic cotton” are being advertised on certain mattresses when in fact the fabric is blended with synthetic polyester. In this era of popularity for latex mattresses it’s imperative for the consumer to do thorough research so they can be 100% sure they are getting the product they think they are purchasing.

HOW OUR NATURAL LATEX RUBBER IS MADE Rubber tapping is the process by which rubber is harvested. An incision is made in the bark of a rubber tree, which cuts through the bark so the latex drips into a collecting cup. The work is done at night or in the early morning before the day’s temperature rises, so the latex will drip longer before coagulating and sealing the cut. Rubber tapping does not hurt the trees and it’s a great way for the indigenous people to make a living using their natural resources.

Each rubber tree weeps about one tablespoon of latex daily and a Queen size 6” core needs the daily output of 2500 trees, spread over 12 acres of rubber plantation, providing a living to eight rubber tappers. Interestingly, these rubber trees account for the removal of 143 metric tons of carbon dioxide from the environment every year.

100_natural_latex_rubberDon’t let the “creaminess” fool ya. Our natural latex rubber is made from the milk
of the Hevea Brasiliensis (rubber tree), so some folks think it will be too soft (like milk).
Actually, natural latex rubber is the firmest, heaviest and most durable component you
can use inside a mattress. Once the rubber tree milk sap is harvested and baked, this solid,
thick core can last for decades offering you support and comfort -WITHOUT the chemicals.

Natural latex rubber is proven to be the very best component used for mattress support, comfort, durability, as well as offering a healthier sleeping environment. It’s naturally dust mite resistant; it’s breathable so you don’t sleep hot; it’s resiliency is known to last for decades; it’s responsive support offers comfort and proper alignment.

Our natural latex is made from 100% natural rubber direct from the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, known for the finest rubber plantations in the world. No synthetic latex. No poly foams. No fillers. No lies.

THERAPEUTIC PURE WOOL
sheep
TEMPERATURE REGULATING AND HELPS KEEPS YOU DRY Wool provides a temperature controlled sleep environment that’s perfect for your body. No matter the season, wool is able to maintain the perfect body temperature. In the winter wool produces warmth without overheating and has the ability to keep you comfortable and in the summer you don’t overheat because of its moisture wicking process.

The average sleeper looses a pint of moisture every night and wool is able to absorb this moisture without feeling damp. The cells of wool fibers are able to quickly and efficiently absorb and evaporate moisture. Due to the natural crinkled structure, wool has an enormous capacity to store air. This property allows your skin to breathe as you sleep surrounded by natural, dry warmth – without the clammy feeling associated with synthetic materials. You’ll wake up well rested and refreshed. It’s the perfect ingredient for your mattress and comforter.

CALMS THE HEART FOR DEEPER SLEEP Studies show that the heart rate is significantly lower when sleeping with wool. Feathers, down, polyester and other synthetic fibers had no effect on (and sometimes increased) the sleeper’s heart rate. A lowered heart rate induces a deep, relaxed sleep.

NO DUST-MITES, MOLD OR MILDEW People with allergies are able to use wool products because it is resistant to bacteria, mold and mildew which can trigger allergic reactions. Wool is also dust-mite resistant because it evaporates moisture rapidly and dust-mites can’t thrive in a dry environment. Our wool is not chemically acid-washed, and it’s also completely covered in organic cotton, so even people with wool allergies can enjoy sleeping with a CozyPure® mattress and comforter.

NATURALLY FLAME RESISTANT Using ONLY WOOL we passed Federal Regulation PART 1633 – Standard for the Flammability (Open Flame) of Mattresses – so we don’t need to add any FR barrier or chemicals.

Because healthy bedding materials are becoming more popular, many manufacturers are now adding wool as a marketing tool – but that doesn’t mean the wool is the actual fire barrier. In most cases you’ll find they add wool under the fire barrier just so they can “claim wool” simply to sell their mattress.

OUR MATERIALS ARE NATURAL, RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE


CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON

Cotton

Most consumers are unaware of the abundant textiles available to manufacture “green goods” and the opportunity to market products deceptively, otherwise known as “greenwashing”.  A perfect example is mattress ticking, the fabric used on the outside of a mattress.

Many mattresses offered today are marketed with “organic cotton” or “bamboo” fabric, however they neglect to tell you the content breakdown.

Mattress knits are comprised of three components: the face (top side), the fill (inside), the back (bottom). The majority of “organic cotton” knits feature organic cotton only on the top side. That is, the inside and bottom of the knit is made from polyester. These fabrics are advertised misleadingly to the consumer as “organic cotton” even though only 33% of the fabric is really organic.

CozyPure® never uses polyester blends in our fabrics. Adding synthetics would defeat our purpose of creating a natural sleep system that breathes. Man-made synthetic materials can trap heat and moisture which won’t allow breathability of the fabric. We also don’t process our organic cotton with chemical finishes such as formaldehyde, which is often used on wrinkle-resistant sheets.

THE HUMAN EXPERIMENT: Chemical Overload

People assume that if something’s for sale, it’s safe. Unfortunately, this is not true.

The Human Experiment, a documentary narrated by Sean Penn, investigates consumer products available for sale which we think are safe, yet contain thousands of unregulated chemicals.

Did you know that we’re exposed to over 80,000 potentially harmful synthetic chemicals every day? Of the almost 85,000 chemicals only 200 have been tested for safety.

Meanwhile, every year over 1,000 new chemicals are registered for use, yet unregulated for safety. Once you learn about some of the more shocking ingredients, you can start to phase them out by switching to safer alternative products. One of the easiest ways to do this is simply understanding the ingredients; if you don’t know a word listed on the label then it’s likely a chemical ingredient that you should research and find out if you’re comfortable using it.

We’re not saying all chemicals are bad. In fact some can help enhance our lives such as medications and certain plastics (eyeglasses, equipment, appliances, etc). However, since chemicals are virtually everywhere they’re basically impossible to eliminate completely which is why we suggest making your bedroom a sanctuary. It’s one place you really can choose safe, natural products to envelope yourself in a healthy healing space for eight hours and greatly reduce your chemical exposure.
