The truth about Foam: Dust mites, mould, chemicals

You know that saying, “it’s what’s on the inside that counts”, well it’s also “what’s on the inside that we can’t see”…..

Here are 3 things you DON’T want to be sleeping with… Dust mites, mould or chemicals!

 

Foam pillows contains an array of harmful chemicals

1. Let’s start with chemicals. Did you know that the main ingredient in memory foam pillows is petroleum, containing an array of chemicals, some which are carcinogenic! They contain chemical additives (VOC’s) which give off a toxic gas long after purchase, causing headaches, dizziness and nausea for some people, for others the after effects can be debilitating.

 

 

 

 

 

Foam is a breeding ground for dust mites and mould

2. Foam is also a breeding ground for dust mites and mould due to it’s inability to breathe. Dust mites living in your foam pillow, cause a host of health issues including allergies, asthma and sinus problems. They thrive on the trapped heat & moisture and feed on dead skin cells.

 

 

 

 

Foam is likely to be prone to mould

3. Mould caused by a build up of moisture, sweat and dribble in your pillow can cause allergens, asthma and toxins, leading to infection and other serious illnesses.  Around 3 million Australians now suffer from allergies, many who aren’t aware of how close the cause may be. The number of people developing sensitivities to chemicals is growing rapidly. Your bedroom should be a healthy environment, a place where you retreat to after a busy day, a healing place for your body. Quality, healthy bedding is sadly often overlooked.
