Do you suffer from asthma or eczema?
Unfortunately you are not the only one either. Recent studies have shown that 1 in 9 Australian’s suffer from asthma (around 2.5 million) and 1 in 6 children and 1 in 14 adults are affected by eczema. There are of course many causes and triggers for these allergies but two of the most common triggers in Australia is the house dust mite and mould, all of which can be found in your regular mattress.
In the manufacturing of our mattress we wanted to ensure we found a way to prevent the contamination and growth of bacteria and put Australian’s health first! Read below as we show you how we have found a way to ensure you Sleep Easy, Breathe Easy on our JellyFish Mattress.
Eczema is a recurring, inflammatory skin condition affecting one in three Australiasians at some stage throughout their lives. Although the exact cause of eczema is unknown it has been linked to house dust mite allergens, moulds and bacteria, all of which love living in your bed and other soft furnishing in your house.
JellyFish understand how a good night’s sleep is important to you and your family and in the production of our mattress the importance of having a mattress that could resist the irritations of eczema was vital. Our mattress is an open celled, dual layer Dunlop Foam that is treated with Ultra-Fresh. Ultra-Fresh is a antimicrobial treatment that prevents the growth of mould, fungi and bacteria.
Over the period of 8 years, a mattress can double in weight with the build up of dead skin cells, colonies of dust mites and gallons of sweat, all of which can irritate the skin. The house dust mite requires the presence of mould and fungi to live and by incorporating Ultra-Fresh in the Dunlop Foam, 99.6% of dust mite populations were reduced in the JellyFish Mattress.
We were shocked when we discovered that 1 in 9 Australian’s suffer from Asthma! The more shocking fact is that you sleep every night with the most common trigger of asthma, the house dust mite! Dust mites are microscopic creatures that feed off human skin cells as well as mould and bacteria – everything that can be found in your generic mattress. JellyFish has prevented the growth of the house dust mite in our mattress by treating our Dunlop Foam with Ultra-Fresh, an antimicrobial treatment. Not only is our mattress treated with Ultra-Fresh but we don’t have an inner-spring! Our mattress is an open-celled foam which the dust mites can’t live in like a usually inner-spring mattress. A JellyFish Mattress will have you sleeping easy and breathing easy throughout the night!
