I never thought I’d be in the mattress industry.
It all started when a family member was diagnosed with cancer. Physicians made me aware of the toxins in everyday items like couches, paint and even traditional mattresses.
My family had been in the latex foam business for years and supplied most major brands. I studied the industry and realized that mattresses were manufactured with poor quality components, filled with chemically derived foams treated with harsh chemicals and layered together with glue.
In looking for alternatives I realized there weren't any. I decided to research and developed something different, memory foam made from natural ingredients. I tried offering this foam to major mattress brands but most weren't interested because of the high cost. Those who did buy it only integrated an insignificant amount in order to promote the foam's natural qualities.
As I evaluated brand after brand I realized the industry wasn't overly concerned about consumer health or product quality, just catch phrases and profit margins.
That's when I founded Essentia, more than a brand; a commitment to comfort and quality, without compromise.”
