Perfecting the world’s only natural memory foam took love, science, testing and time. What Essentia achieved in doing was to take high quality natural and organic ingredients, turning them into a truly next generation, latex-based foam that sleeps cool, feels better, and reacts faster than any other foam you’ve ever experienced.
Essentia’s patented natural memory foam starts with Hevea milk that is mixed with other essential natural and organic ingredients that once combined help to achieve the distinctive feel and properties found only in Essentia. Of utmost importance to Essentia was sourcing the right ingredients to make our organic mattresses and natural memory foam mattresses, but also being transparent with what ingredients are used.
As much care is taken into crafting a new Essentia mattress as you would expect from any James Beard Award-winning baker. Essentia’s goal is to ensure that each mattress reflects what Essentia owners are meant to feel which is fully refreshed after a deep, restorative, truly therapeutic sleep experience on Essentia.
To ensure that, there are 2 more steps before a new mattress begins its trek to you.
Like all baked goods, Essentia products need some time to cool. When it comes to foam, the cell structure and consistency changes after a few hours, even after a few days. All products cure on racks for 7 days to ensure you always get the Essentia feel we’re famous for.
All Essentia mattresses undergo inspection and testing before being packed up and shipped to you. Including ILD (indentation load deflection) testing which determines firmness, stiffness or load-bearing capacity.
When it comes to how Essentia memory foam mattresses are made, we’re not just a company, we’re family. Health, safety, and happiness go hand in hand at Essentia.
Everything gets tested, from worker safety to the final product. No gloves or other forms of protective equipment are needed for our team in the factory given the nature of our natural products. VOC testing has been performed on both work environment in our factory and the final product. Essentia’s factory is both GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) certified.
We also put a lot of stock into the environment and our impact on it, which is why it was extremely important for us to find the best solution to ship Essentia mattresses. It takes special machinery to compress, roll and pack mattresses as dense and heavy as Essentia, something that hadn’t been done on a product this dense. Upgrading compressors, motors and a gentle re-tool of a custom Italian-made Roll-Pack Machine made it possible.
Almost all Essentia products are delivered via UPS or FedEx. The ones that aren´t, are simply too heavy for standard delivery methods. What does roll packing mean for the environment? It means they take 75% less space in a truck and 75% less packaging. Our boxes are made from 100% recycled paper (99% post-consumer, 1% post-industrial).
The bottom line is, you can be sure that you’re purchasing a world class, safe, and healthy product. Essentia also lists and provides additional information on the Test & Certification page found here.
Once you have made the decision to jump on an Essentia mattress, you have the added guarantee that it will stand the test of time. Essentia’s mattresses feature a 20-year warranty!
To demonstrate the durability of Essentia’s high-quality mattresses, below you will find a chart indicating the height change of an Essentia mattress over a 10-year period.
To conduct the test, a 250lb hexagonal shape roller passes over the mattress 200,000 times, which simulates 10 years of use. What was found is that the Essentia mattress experienced a loss of less than a quarter inch of its original height at the 10-year mark.
Based on these results, it’s safe to say you can expect your Essentia to stand the test time, with the added security of Essentia’s twenty-year warranty.
Fun Fact: if you were to leave an Essentia mattress fully exposed to the elements (wind, rain, sun) it will biodegrade in just 3 years.
