Memory foam is incredible stuff. It is, however, a labor intensive
product, and that means that it costs money. In recent years, quite
a few new brands of discount memory foam have appeared on the market,
many of them selling a product that is not of good quality.
You've probably seen this discount memory foam
at your local super store or wholesale warehouse. Sometimes, the lack of quality is
obvious; cheap memory foam with no "memory", foam that
visibly flakes and breaks down, even while it's still on the shelves.
More troubling than this even, are the manufacturers who do a good
job making their foam seem like a quality product.
Memory foam is a high technology product, and
although it's certainly worth the money, it is a bit pricey. So remember,
if you find a memory foam mattress topper at a price that just seems
too good to be true, it probably is. Our memory foam mattress toppers
and other products are made in America, and meet an exceptionally
high standard of quality.
We buy directly from the manufacturer,
and operate online with few overhead costs, we can offer the lowest
prices anywhere. There is no need to settle for low quality,
cheap memory foam. In fact, our prices are comparable to
many of the discount memory foam brands found at the "mega-retailers",
it's the Sleep Aid quality that has no comparison.
Many brands use dangerous chemicals
like formaldehyde and other fixers in their manufacturing process.
This can cause reactions for some people with very sensitive skin.
More commonly though, these chemical residues give the foam a very
powerful smell, similar to strong vinegar. Most people find this smell
very unpleasant, and some people who are very sensitive may even find
themselves unable to sleep on this type of a memory foam mattress
topper. Some companies will even try to mask this smell with gimmicky
mattress covers, in order to sell their cheap, discount memory foam
at a higher price.
Memory foam manufacturers operating overseas are
not subject to the same regulatory constraints as manufacturers
at home. Many Asian memory foam plants use toxic chemical
that can actually make you sick. In addition their quality
is not closely monitored and the density you are paying for is not the
density you will receive. At A1Mattress, we prefer
not to take any chances, so all of our products are produced in the
USA. Beware of cheap memory foam brands. These rock
bottom discount memory foam products are usually low quality foreign
Unfortunately, memory foam produces
some pretty ugly gases during the manufacturing process, like CFC's,
the volatile gases that break down the ozone layer. Unless lots or
care is taken, these gases can escape into our atmosphere. This is
especially true of factories operating overseas, where environmental
regulation is often less stringent than in the US. Because of the
Sleep Aid vacuum sealed manufacturing process, gases are contained,
and can be safely captured before they can damage the environment.
Sleep Aid is the Green choice for memory foam. A healthier planet,
a healthier you.
