This tencel mattress pad not only protects your mattress against:

  • water spills (its waterproof)
  • bacterial growth
  • bed mites

but also better sleeping conditions - HOW?

  • TENCEL® feels much cooler when the temperature rises due to high moisture uptake = cool to the touch and soft on the skin.
  • Compared to cotton, TENCEL® is said to absorb and release 50% more moisture = helps to alleviate skin irritation
  • With less moisture buildup, bacteria and bed mites are unable to thrive & grow.

HOW is Tencel manufactured?

  • from eucalypus pulp, grown without chemicals nor pesticides
  • Tencel isn't considered organic in our eyes but its part of our Eco product line - essentially, uses a sustainable 'greener' source of eucalyptus versus petrochemical base like polyester

So what's eucalyptus fabric all about?

Well, its proper name is lyocell, and, good news, it's definitely a greener version of rayon, processed with gentler solvents in a 99.6 per cent closed-loop system. The Tencel brand of lyocell is the greenest of all, made with Euro Forest Stewardship Council-certified pulp, so the eucalyptus sourced has a pretty sound rep - from Ecoholic

  • oekotexOeko-tex Standard 100 certified
  • uses group hidroxyl with vapour air (ie., no solvent) in the dyeing & lamination process
  • to produce the fiber they use a solvent that is recycled via closed loop process

Waterproofing

Off-gassing

The total amount of polyurethane for waterproofing is about 2% of the product. The polyurethane is essentially an ultra- thin layer inside the pad, just enough to make it waterproof, although it is not visible when examining the pad. Although this product is not certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textiles Standard), GOTS does allow up to 5% polyurethane in accessories.
