Achoo Expands Eco Bedding Line
|Over the years, our exclusive Allergy Armor line of bedding has slowly grown to meet the needs of the growing number of allergy and asthma sufferers. From just two types of fabrics for barrier bedding to a full line of seven fabric styles, pillows, blankets and memory foam products, Allergy Armor continues to grow and provide relief to allergy and asthma sufferers across the country.
Several years ago, we recognized the demand for allergy bedding that was true organic bedding. From those with MCS to people simply concerned with the environment and sustainable products, there has been an increase in demand for organic and eco bedding. For these groups, Allergy Armor Organic was born.
Allergy Armor Organic is a made from certified organic cotton fiber and has an average pore size of six microns. These bedding covers are designed to encase your mattress, pillow and duvet in a layer of tightly-woven cotton, protecting you from particle allergens like dust mites and pollen. At this time we also introduced organic cotton blankets. Light enough for year round use, but warm enough to complement any bed during the cooler months, organic cotton blankets provide the warmth of cotton without the residues left from pesticides, fertilizers, and finishing chemicals.
Our most recent addition to the Allergy Armor Organic line of bedding isorganic cotton sheets. Certified organic by the most stringent agency in operation, Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), our organic cotton sheets contain no heavy metals, PVC, phthalates, formaldehyde, or aromatic solvents. To meet GOTS certification, all aspects of production are certified, including labor practices, what material can be used in the packaging, the use of recycled materials and initial production of the fibers (i.e. on a farm). All of these criteria work together to create the most comprehensive and widely recognized organic textile certification in the world. We are proud to say that the Allergy Armor Organic Cotton Sheets are GOTS certified!
Also over the next few months, we will switch our organic mattress, pillow and duvet covers over to this same GOTS certified cotton. It is a more rigorous certification, which means greater assurance that what you are purchasing is actually organic.Â The average pore size will remain the same.
So what does all this mean for you? First, we hope that it demonstrates a continued commitment to provide the best allergy relief products on the market. Second, our organic Allergy Armor bedding covers and blankets are all now manufactured under one roof - ours. And last, as we continue to grow and meet your needs, keep an eye out for additional eco bedding products, as well as, new and effective types of allergy bedding to keep you breathing easier and feeling better.
