What are your mattresses treated with?

An easy answer is that White Lotus Home does this naturally! How? Without the need of any chemicals in their mattresses by simply, using WOOL as the natural fire retardant (FR). For more details on how these mattresses are made please go to: http://www.whitelotus.net/green-cotton-wool-mattress.html  

  • The mattresses are made by wrapping a layer of wool (Not just any wool, it has to pure as natural as it can be) around the outer most fiber layer inside the mattresses. This wool just like all the fibers in the mattresses, do not touch your body, since it is inside the casing. Cotton, Natural latex, Eco-friendly foam and/or other layers (depending on your final choice) are encased in a fabric casing. This outer casing material can be made with 100% Cotton or 100% USDA Certified Cotton fabric.
  • The Cotton and Wool Dreamton Mattress is a White Lotus original mattress, which is how most of the natural and organic mattresses are ordered and made at White Lotus Home. They are many firmness and softness options for the Dreamton, since it can include other fibers to meet your needs. 
  • The wool wrap also acts as a:
    • Natural Dust Mite repellant
    • Body temperature regulator, because the wool wicks away moisture during hot months and keeps your body warm during cold months.

ANOTHER CHIOCE: While White Lotus Home also offers 100% organic and green cotton mattresses, without the need of WOOL as the natural fire retardant, we do require a doctor’s note before we can make one for you. This is the law and since a White Lotus Home mattress without wool as the natural FR, will not meet the FR1633 Law requirement, we need this note. It is what the CPSC requires. The doctor’s note must be on a prescription pad that includes the doctor’s registered drug number which works the same as when they prescribe medicine.  

ABOUT THE FR LAW: The FR1633 effective July, 1, 2007, includes that all USA mattress manufacturers need to meet this law and normally, traditional manufacturers use chemical flame retardants (FR) to pass this law. This FR law helps increase escape time for victims trapped in a fire which should save hundreds of lives. If you find others claiming that they make 100% organic or 100% natural mattresses without the use of an FR, please request details of how they are meeting the FR1633 law.
