WHY DUST MITE ENCASEMENT MATTRESS COVERS?

  • Recent research has found that dust mites are one of the most common causes of asthma and allergies in the bedroom

Many dust mite encasements exist on the market but if you have concerns about offgassing plastic and/or prefer NO PLASTIC & something organic that will ensure dust mites stay clear, this is the hypoallergenic dust mite mattress encasement for you.

WHY USE PLASTIC IN OTHER DUST MITE COVERS?

Typically plastic is used to provide waterproofing - it can help contain off-gassing, act as a barrier against bed mites, bed bugs, dust mites and other creepy crawlies we don't want to think about as we sleep.

THE ISSUE

The plastic used in conventional hypoallergenic mattress encasement covers aren't necessarily high quality and can be the source of off gassing themselves, which isn't ideal if you'd rather not inhale volative organic compounds as you sleep.

THE SOLUTION

We sourced an organic cotton based dust mite mattress encasement cover with NO plastic:

  • Uses tightly woven GOTS certified 100% organic cotton only
  • Compared to others, we use the heavier 280 Thread count as it is a very dense fabric that will stand up to years of wear
  • The nylon zipper on the mattress encasement covers halfway up each side and along the bottom
  • Dust mites measure from 100 to 300 microns and their feces can be as small as 10 microns which could break through many fabrics
  • Our 100% organic cotton barrier fabric was lab tested by Porous Materials, Inc in New York, USA and proved to have an average pore size of 3.8 microns
  • i.e., dust mite feces which measures 10 microns are too big and cannot pass through the tightly woven organic cotton fabric with 3.8 microns pore size 

DOES IT FEEL LIKE SLEEPING ON A PIECE OF CARDBOARD?

  • No. It's slightly firmer than a sheet, absolutely not like cardboard!
  • As you'd put your own sheet on top of it, you'll barely notice it over time
