One of my favorite parts of my home is my bed. I'm very keen on my pillows, sheets and comforters (because they're what help me get all of my beauty sleep!). However I'm well aware that my bedding was likely made with pesticides, chemical treatments ("wrinkle free" or "stain resistant"), dyes and flame retardants. Though things as regular as bedding do not affect me or my health, for someone with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) or very sensitive skin, the residue of these Raw Cottonchemicals can make sleep a real struggle.

For many with MCS, being particular about bedding isn't an option, it's a necessity. Most bedding is not organic and can irritate sensitive skin, causing allergic reactions, dermatitis, itching, swelling or worse. All of these things can leave you feeling tired instead of refreshed and reenergized in the mornings.

Though most are familiar with organic food, what's the deal with - organic - cotton? Merriam Webster defines organic as "of, relating to, yielding, or involving the use of food produced with the use of feed or fertilizer of plant or animal origin without employment of chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides". So now let's take a look at cotton.

Cotton, a fibrous plant of the Gossypium genus is akin to okra and cacao and has been internationally domesticated for centuries, from Australia to Alabama. However, organic commercial cotton production has been on the rise for the past decade. Unlike the majority of cotton currently grown in the U.S., organic commercial cotton is not genetically modified. It is also grown in an organic environment meaning it is often manually cultivated, grown in organic soil, and not treated with fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

Luckily, AchooAllergy.com offers a variety of bedding made from 100% certified organic cotton to help make your bed as heavenly (and healthy!) as possible:
  • Allergy Armor Organic Cotton BlanketsAllergy Armor Organic Cotton Sheets - GOTS certified, these 300 TC sheets are soft and comfortable. Lacking chemical finishers and dyes, you can find sheets for any size bed in basic, cream or white colors, which match any bedding.
  • Allergy Armor Organic Cotton Blankets - We are proud to say these blankets are cut, sewn, and packed right here in our Atlanta location. They are soft and lightweight yet warm, making a great layer for your bed, anytime of the year. Available in 2 weights, 100 and 120, each blanket is constructed from USDA certified organic cotton. Choose from either the crepe weave, which has a small tighter pattern, or the waffle weave which fluffs out to a thick and luxurious pattern after the first wash and dry. You can also select from four sizes (we even have blankets for the little ones!).
  • Allergy Armor Organic Allergy Covers - In Stock and With a New DesignAllergy Armor Organic Bedding Covers - Although we have not begun making our own organic pillows, we do have organic pillow and mattress covers, perfect for those coping with dust mite allergies as well as MCS and eczema. These covers have no finishes or coatings, and have an average pore size of less than 5 microns. Just slip these covers on your favorite pillow and mattress, then apply your organic sheets or pillowcases, and you're all set!
After spending some time upstairs enjoying the soft textures of our Allergy Armor products, I'm going to invest in some good quality blankets and sheets too! Sweet dreams!

With most of the country firmly in fall's grip, and a large portion of the northeast dealing with a simply awful storm, I hope everyone stays warm, dry and safe. With that being said here's an update on some news and notes here at Achoo.

Organic Cotton Pillow CoversThe response to the changes we've made to our organic cotton allergy covers has been tremendous. We recently switched our sourcing of our organic cotton to a Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). This has created two big advantages for you. First, we've cut the production time way day, and while you still may get a notice that one of our organic cotton covers is on backorder, 99% ship that same day. Secondly, we've also significantly lowered the price, by as much as 50% on some products.

Not only is keeping up with this demand keeping our seamstresses busy, but with winter quickly approaching they are also very busy fulfilling a large blanket contract for our men and women in the Marine Corp.

On another bedding related note, we realize that our allergy duvet covers are very popular amongst a large portion of allergy and asthma sufferers. It is often an overlooked source of dust mites, but a common complaint we hear about the covers is that they are plain (in color) and lack clips (to keep the comforter in place inside of them). While the clip issues and color is difficult to change without the use of chemical dyes or great expense, we've decided to take a different approach to this. Keep an eye out for a new AchooAllergy brand comforter. Here's a hint, you won't need a separate duvet allergy cover for it.

Blue Cold Weather MaskAs the temperatures dip, we always see a big push for our cold weather mask. While most masks retain some heat, this mask has fleece to help create a pocket of warmth around your nose and mouth. As the cold enters, it is warmed and moistened before you breathe it in. This helps those who want to continue outdoor activities and exercise throughout the year but who may suffer from cold weather induced asthma. In addition to the standard black cold weather mask, we've now added navy. So you now have a choice in terms of color of your cold weather mask.

Lastly, we've been looking through and testing a variety of mattresses, so look for these to possibly make a reappearance on the site in the near future. Keep those effected by Soupy Sandy in your thoughts and have a safe and fun Halloween tomorrow evening!

Allergy Armor Organic Cotton BeddingIt's not often that we have the opportunity to announce that prices are going down. Too often we get stuck in the position of passing on a message from the manufacturer - raw materials cost more, fuel costs more, so now the products are going to cost more. This, however, is different, so we are very pleased to announce that we have cut the price on all of our Allergy Armor Organic cotton bedding covers!

By bringing production in-house for the majority of our allergy bedding covers, we've dramatically cut costs to be able to offer certified organic cotton allergy bedding at the best prices possible. On average organic mattress covers have dropped by about 25% while the organic pillow covers have dropped in price by as much as 50%. On top of this, we are currently offering an additional 10% off most products, including this bedding. If you were considering organic cotton allergy covers, now is the time to buy.

Allergy Armor Organic Cotton is GOTS CertifiedAllergy Armor Organic Cotton bedding is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS). GOTS is the most widely recognized organic textile certification agency in the world. From farm to finished product, Allergy Armor Organic Cotton bedding is free of fertilizers, pesticides, chemicals, dyes, resins, and other compounds that are common in modern textile production. GOTS certification also ensures that laborers are treated fairly and that environmental standards are met. We do this to be able to bring you and all allergy, asthma and MCS sufferers a product that is better for the environment and better for you!
