We had been asked to do a comparison between our options and the two top crib mattresses in the market
The main competitor’s model uses a food grade polymer which feels like sleeping on a trampoline. This technology did not do well in the European market since it was basically made with the plastic derived from petroleum similar to that of a glue gun.
They use a breathable material for the outer ticking but we have found that our 3D Organic Cotton weave is both breathable, anti-bacterial and Anti-mite making it the ideal option.
Our competitor has a few studies to show the benefit against suffocation risk. While we have developed our crib mattresses based on numerous medical studies which describe the ideal positioning for babies but also for ideal development. We created a crib mattress which helps with the proper development of the liver and also helps avoid Otitis, Cranial Deformation, SIDS, Reflux, Positional Plagiocephaly.
Our competitor insists their product is not made with foam, latex or adhesives but once we uncovered it’s real composition we found they were playing symantecs because they use petroleum based polymers which are practically the same.
Our competitor uses a washable core but it was made that way since their core is very susceptible to mold mildew and bacteria so the only way to avoid those issues is by washing it frequently. We have a washable top but we designed the washable top, not to avoid mold mildew or bacteria, since ours does not have that issue, but rather to wash it in case of accidents.
Our competitor uses a product that is 100% recyclable but based on their materials we feel these claims hard to sustain. In our products we use truly green products which have the highest % of natural components while still focusing on quality, durability and comfort while still being protected from developing mold, mildew or bacteria.
Our second competitor has developed a model which needs to be spot cleaned due to the potential for mold or mildew while ours can be steam cleaned if needed.
Their product is positioned as being organic but certified organic holds no weight in the US market for those that are knowledgeable in the subject. We use organic cotton in our mattresses but the true gold standard will always be the oeko tex certification which we have achieved in all of our materials. This certification takes sometimes years to achieve and we have the highest oeko tex certification in all of our materials. Our competitor holds several certifications but many are certifications that hold little weight and they do not hold an oeko tex certification.
Both of our companies use safe flame retardants
Both of our products are free of harmful glues or adhesives
Both of our products are free of GMO Cotton or other GMO fibers
Our competitor make most of their products in the US but they are made with some components and materials that are imported. In almost all cases if a company is proud of where they import their materials from they will mention it and if not they most probably import from China. We source everything in Europe.
Our product lines were designed by a group of engineers who have perfected their designs since the mid 1960’s to bring to the forefront some of the most innovative technologies available today. Europe’s advancements in Green technology have them leading the future path of the sleep industry while the US has regretfully fallen far behind.
Both of our companies are free from harmful chemicals, allergenic materials, and try to use more natural materials
Our competitor holds a few certifications that hold little relevance but not the ones that matter the most. We hold very dear our oeko tex certificates.
