    There are many reasons why celebrities such as Maggie Gyllenhaal, Halle Berry and Gwyneth Paltrow have chosen to buy from innovative mattress manufacturer Naturalmat. It could be that A-listers adore the low carbon footprint, the overall healthier sleeping environment, not to mention their mattresses provide excellent levels of both support and comfort. However it’s the renewable materials contained within Naturalmat mattresses that really makes them so appealing.The most luxurious adult mattress within the Naturalmat range is the Cashmere. Coir (coconut fibre) is one of this mattress’s prime components. Naturalmat use certified organic coir from the only certified organic coconut plantation in the world. Coir fibre is incredibly resilient and fantastically springy, making it a perfect natural component for mattresses. It also ensures unbeatable airflow and excellent support to promote healthy and natural sleep.

    The organic lambswool used within the Cashmere comes from Soil Association certified farms in Devon, Dorset and Somerset. It is processed on the edge of Dartmoor using water from the River Dart, which is then recycled back into the river afterwards. Naturalmat add an extract of essential oils during this process, which includes lavender, lemon and eucalyptus. These essential oils render the wool anti dust mite and anti moth. Wool is a natural fire retardant so The Cashmere is chemical free. Wool has brilliant natural properties of ventilation and insulation, as well as being wonderfully soft and fluffy.

    The natural latex layer within this mattress comes directly from the milky sap of the rubber tree. Once the sap is collected, it is pumped full of air to create a foamy white froth before it is set in a large oven. The natural elasticity of the rubber gives the latex layer fantastic properties of enduring support. The open cell structure of latex foam makes it naturally antimicrobial, ensuring no dust mites can live in it, so it remains naturally breathable and totally hypoallergenic.

    Finally cashmere completes the lavish list of internal layers by adding soft spring and comfort to the mattress. Cashmere is incredibly sumptuous and like wool it is a fantastic insulator.

    All Naturalmat cotton covers are treated with a natural anti bed bug treatment which is derived from geraniol (citrus based). In tests this revolutionary process has proven to eliminate any bed bug that comes into contact with the cover within 72 hours. Cotton also has a unique ability to ventilate and wick away humidity and perspiration enabling the body to keep an even temperature.
