We got a Naturepedic EOS series mattress to review on March 18th, 2016 and now we’re halfway through 2020.

So, how has our Naturepedic held up over the years?

The short answer…

AMAZING!!! This mattress has provided over 1,500 nights of absolutely wonderful sleep.

The long answer is…

Well… you’re going to get a little story!!!

We owned a leading memory foam mattress brand prior to our Naturepedic mattress. That memory foam mattress is molded on the bottom. Black… nasty/ damp/ disgusting mold. It was super gross.

Neither Brian or I really knew what a non-toxic mattress was at that point and began to do some research. Then a little research turned into a whole lot of research. And during that time we decided we were going to have an organic non-toxic mattress from that moment forward.

While we were searching for a good quality brand we could buy, we wrote a blog post about our personal experience with memory foam mattress molding. We had no clue the blog post about the moldy memory foam mattress went viral.

And… boy… that company obviously had a temper about our honest review… because they had their lawyers contact us. They were so mad, they threatened legal action if we didn’t remove the blog post. So, with their threats in mind, we reluctantly removed the post and vowed to never use that brand again.

Personally, if I had a product that molded and a customer wrote a bad review… I would reach out to that customer and try to resolve the situation rather than threatening litigation. I guess that’s what happens when you have a temper instead of good customer service?

Flowers still bloom even after the most violent storm!!!

During that time period of that mattress company threatening litigation is when Naturepedic found us.

When our relationship with Naturepedic was founded… we found not only an amazing mattress… we found an amazing company to work with.

Naturepedic is a family-run business based out of Ohio. These are truly some of the nicest people you’ll come across and they truly believe in making the best organic beds possible.

The difference in the way we were treated by a company who had a temper with us and we spent $$$$ on their mattress that molded and Naturepedic is night and day different.

Beyond anything, I value customer support and customer care when dealing with companies. Naturepedic is top-notch in those areas.

And right now in history, I believe in buying from quality US-based businesses is more important than ever.

ORIGINAL REVIEW March 18th, 2016

Brian and I have been talking about getting a new mattress for quite some time. After the girls got a non-toxic mattress, I really wanted to replace our memory foam mattress. The girls still come into our bed, and I did not want them to be exposed to the VOCs released from memory foam mattresses – nor did I want Brian or I to be exposed to them.

So when Naturepedic reached out and let me know that they had launched a customizable organic mattress line, the EOS series, I was thrilled. Brian and I had been looking at mattresses where we could each customize the firmness of our side, but the options we had found were not non-toxic.

Naturepedic Organic Mattresses are Safe – Naturally

The Naturepedic EOS line is not only non-toxic, but organic too. Unlike other companies who may use some organic ingredients, the entire EOS mattress is certified organic to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Additionally, all latex is certified to the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS). Love that!

In addition, the Naturepedic EOS organic mattress does not contain any toxic flame retardant chemicals or flame retardant barriers. That doesn’t mean it’s flammable though! It naturally meets and exceeds all federal and state flammability standards. Naturepedic does this by using a design that does not use any petrochemical foams.

Naturepedic doesn’t use unnecessary additives either, so you won’t be dealing with toxic off-gassing, as we did with our old mattress. You can also feel confident that Naturepedic is telling you the truth about the emissions that aren’t coming from their organic mattresses because the EOS line is certified to the stringent GREENGUARD® GOLD standard. I sleep much better knowing my family isn’t inhaling toxic chemicals all night long!

A Truly Customizable Organic Mattress Line

Brian and I had been looking at getting a customizable mattress so we would both have control over our side of the bed. However, the line we were looking at was not non-toxic, so we didn’t make a purchase. Fortunately for us, Naturepedic introduced its EOS organic mattress series – which is customizable and non-toxic.

When you buy a Naturepedic EOS organic mattress, you get to choose the firmness level for each side of the bed. There are four levels of firmness: plush, cushion firm, firm and extra firm. Cushion firm is the most popular level, so that’s what both of us went with. We knew that if it wasn’t right, we’d have 90 days to exchange the comfort inserts for free (and only pay for shipping).

Fortunately, we made the right choice! Cushion firm is the perfect level for both of us. Even if we change our minds after 90 days, we can still order new layers and change the support or comfort of our mattress without having to replace the entire mattress. Love that!

How Does the Naturepedic EOS Mattress Series Work?

I am the one in the family that assembles all of the furniture, so I felt pretty confident that I’d be able to assemble the mattress myself. Our Naturepedic EOS Standard California King Mattress came in four large boxes. Brian helped drag the boxes to the bedroom (they’re heavy!), but I planned to put the mattress together on my own.

Naturepedic Mattress Boxes

The Naturepedic website said that it should take two people 15 minutes to assemble the EOS mattress, so I knew it would take me longer on my own. All in all, it took me about an hour to put the mattress together by myself because I made a few mistakes along the way. Do yourself a favor and make sure you understand the instructions before you start.

The Assembly Process

You start by opening the box that says, “Open This Box First.” Inside that box, you’ll find the mattress encasement. Lay that out across your foundation open.

Next, you’ll put the bottom support layers into the mattress case. Make sure you follow the directions and the brown stripe faces the outside of your bed. I missed this the first time and had to re-do it. There are 2 pieces and they’re vacuum-sealed. It was neat to see how they were packaged for shipping.

This bottom support layer is the 8″ breathable encased coil support. The Naturepedic EOS organic mattress features coils that are individually wrapped in a plant-based PLA fabric for full body-contouring and proper postural alignment. The coils are encased in a durable organic cotton outer casing. This method also eliminates the need to use glue or adhesives in assembly.

I love the encased coils because it helps lessen how much I feel Brian move next to me. I feel it more than I felt in our memory foam mattress, but less than in a standard coil mattress. I also find that it helps the mattress to feel cooler and less “sweaty” than our old mattress.

After you get the bottom support layers in right, you’ll be putting in the 3” latex top comfort layers in. If you have a latex sensitivity, you can substitute latex for micro coils (see the Naturepedic website for more information on this option). We went with the latex because it seemed like it would be more comfortable for us.

If you aren’t familiar with the properties of natural latex, it’s one of the most breathable and temperature neutral materials available. So if you live in a warm climate, it’s a great choice. It also has great pressure-point relieving qualities, which I love because I hate waking up with a sore back!

Natural latex is made from the sap of the rubber tree – it’s not a synthetic material made in a lab like a lot of latex. Naturepedic only uses latex foam that’s sourced from reputable certified organic suppliers. The finished foam is certified to the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) and wrapped in a stretch-knit organic cotton outer casing.

I was so excited by the time I got to this point in the assembly process that I forgot to take pictures of this step!

Once you get the comfort layers in, you zip up the encasement. I had to wrestle with it a bit, but it zipped up and the mattress looked beautiful.

The top of the mattress encasement is made from organic cotton that’s super soft. It’s filled with organic wool batting that wicks away moisture, provides natural fire protection and offers temperature regulation. It keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Under the wool, there’s one more layer of non-GMO PLA that’s made from potatoes. This layer also helps to wick moisture and add additional comfort.

Once you zip up the encasement, you’d have no idea how many customizable components are inside the mattress. It’s very comfortable! I have been sleeping better than I’ve slept in a long time since we got our Naturepedic EOS organic mattress!
