|Royal-Pedic has been at the forefront of the environmental movement for over 50 years. Since 1946, Royal-Pedic mattresses have been known as healthy mattresses made with the finest natural materials on earth. Natural ingredients are healthier because they ventilate body heat, offer more comfort, and last longer than the synthetics typically used in the production of mattresses today. And for those of you who are sensitive to polyurethane smells or the chemicals used in modern adhesives, you will be happy to know that Royal-Pedic mattresses do not contain any harsh petrochemicals.
The Finest Long Staple Cotton Grown in California and Texas
The cotton padding is of the highest grade. This cotton is normally only used in custom-made, high-end upholstered furniture. Using the longer cotton fibers blended together to make layers for the mattresses ensures there will be a consistent, supportive sleeping surface. You feel the lumps and inconsistencies that sometimes occur in other mattresses. The Royal-Pedic All Cotton mattress is the firmest according to their rankings scale.
Natural Latex from Rubber Tree Plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia
Royal-Pedic's natural latex is harvested by tapping into the rubber tree. This is the same process used when maple syrup is harvested by tapping into the maple tree. Shipped to a plant in Belgium, the milky white, natural latex is converted into cores for mattresses and pillows in specially designed molds. The latex undergoes four rinsing processes to eliminate rubber odors. Latex is naturally dust mite resistant, hypoallergenic, and antibacterial. TheRoyal Latex mattress has 7-zones of comfort and support.
Untreated Lamb's Wool from New Zealand
The lamb's wool provides a comforting natural fiber layer that is quilted underneath the cotton mattress covering. The lamb's wool contains lanolin which is another natural dust mite repellant. These New Zealand sheep live in wide-open spaces rather than being cooped up in a small spaces. Instead of herding the sheep into a chemically treated trough, the sheep are sheared and the wool is cleaned in a soap solution.
100% Organic Peruvian Cotton
Grown without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers, the 100% organic Peruvian cotton is the purest cotton in the world. Royal-Pedic organic cotton mattresses and mattress pads are custom built without formaldehyde, glues, dyes, resins, polyurethane foam, or synthetic latex. Royal-Pedic Organic Mattresses are healthy for you and the environment.
How to care for your Royal-Pedic Mattress
To ensure your warranty and the normal life of your new Royal-Pedic mattress, you must turn the mattress head to foot, or flip it over top to bottom every two weeks for the first three months. The materials are brand new, and even though they are the most resilient natural materials available, it is important to break in the mattress as evenly as possible. After the first three months, turn your mattress every month or two. Do not pull too hard on the handles; they are there to give aid in positioning the mattress on the box spring. Also, never bend an innerspring mattress more than 22 degrees. It can easily ruin the mattress.
