Time To Buy A Healthy Mattress
Sleep has become a major problem during the Coronavirus. Unsurprisingly stress and rising levels of anxiety have upset many of our sleep patterns and given us all sleepless nights. Good quality sleep is so important in helping us cope with life and maintain a healthy body and mind.
During those nights, lying there, waiting for sleep to come, perhaps you have realized how uncomfortable your mattress is? Not only that, perhaps you are reconsidering the importance of your general health. Maybe it’s time to seek out a mattress which is not full of fire retardant chemicals which affect your endocrine system, circadian rhythm and sleeping patterns.
Sleep and the endocrine system are closely intertwined, with many hormones influenced by sleep. Disruption of these hormones by the pesticide-based chemicals, used as fire retardants in most mattresses, can significantly affect the amount and quality of sleep.
At Cottonsafe® are our mattresses completely different to all other manufacturers – totally free of toxic chemicals and luxuriously comfortable - see our Customer Reviews. The healthy answer to your sleeping problems.

- When did you last change it? It is recommended that your mattress is changed every 8 years for hygiene reasons.
- When did you last turn your mattress?
