Materials We Use

We're going green in a big way. We now use organic certified latex, cotton, and wool, as well as natural flax and coconut husk fibers. All of our memory foams are made with BioFoam® and activated charcoal. And we integrate upcycled denim scraps, recycled plastics, and innovative polyesters made from wood pulp for more sustainable textiles.

Memory Foams Made with BioFoam®

At Brentwood, we now only use memory foams formulated with up to 20% BioFoam®. BioFoam® is a patented biological foam made in the United States from vegetable materials, such as corn, sunflower seeds, castor oil beans, and soybeans. BioFoam received a Cradle to Cradle® Certification™, a globally recognized measure of safer, more sustainable products. Using BioFoam® does not mean that our memory foam is now a natural product. It isn't. However, it does represent an improvement over traditional memory foams. Some of our memory foams are even infused with activated charcoal. All are CertiPUR-US® certified.

Organic Certified Latex from Our Rubber Forests

Our 100% natural latex is GOLS organic, eco-INSTITUT®, FSC®, and Rainforest Alliance certified. It’s a natural and renewable resource. We source our latex mattress cores from our own rubber forests and processing facilities in India and Guatemala. They're made by tapping Hevea Brasilienesis — known as “rubber trees." We collect the white sap in cups, then froth and bake it with steam to create a durable core. At Brentwood, we use both Dunlop and Talalay processed latex.

Organic Wool from the High Himalayas

We’re proud to use GOTS organic certified wool, sourced from our own farms in the Himalayas, and cleaned without chemicals in our own facility in central India. Ethically sourced, it has received the Responsible Wool Standard from Textile Exchange®, which addresses the welfare of sheep and the land they graze on. Our wool is naturally breathable, wicks and absorbs water, and helps keep you cooler than any synthetic fiber. It’s also a natural and renewable resource.

Organic Cotton is Naturally Better

About 95% of the world's cotton relies on synthetic fertilizers, harmful pesticides, and chemical additives that damage ecosystems — and our own health. Our GOTS organic and Fair Trade® certified cotton is produced and certified to higher agricultural standards that restrict the use of toxic chemicals. This is better for farmers and our enviornment. Organic cotton also uses up to 90 percent less water than conventional cotton. Plus, it just feels better — it’s more breathable and has a gentler feel.

Textiles Made from Recycled Plastic Bottles

Billions of plastic bottles go into landfills — and our oceans — every year. REPREVE® is an innovative material that harnesses used plastic bottles to create a recycled polyester performance fabric. It’s durable, soft, and breathable — the material is used for activewear, swimwear, and outerwear. By using REPREVE®, we produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions and use less energy and water compared to manufacturing virgin synthetic fibers. We use the fabric in a variety of woven tickings and covers.

Coconut Husk Fiber Pads Mixed with Latex

Coconut fiber has been used for thousands of years. Our coconut fiber is made from the fruit's husk. It's lightly mixed with organic latex, pressed, and then baked to form a durable, yet airy core. No chemicals are used. Due to its resistance to moisture and incredible breathability, mold or mildew will not grow. It is ideally suited as a core layer or pad to support innersprings, or to buffer layers of latex and wool.

Flax, Earth’s Most Sustainable Fiber

Flax is one of the most sustainable natural fibers in the world. This beautiful, durable fiber — one of the oldest cultivated plants in human history — is derived from a blue flowering annual. It’s a hardy, renewable resource that grows with little water in even the harshest of environments. Flax seed fiber is inherently eco-friendly and hardy, requiring sunshine and almost no water to thrive. It literally consumes carbon dioxide. One hectare of flax can absorb more than a 3.7 metric tons of CO2 and convert it into oxygen.

Upcycled Cotton Denim, From Scraps to Good

We upcycle denim scraps — the byproduct from the production of new cotton denim jeans — to create a support layer that is natural, breathable, and reduces waste. Our recycled denim pad is a high-performance thermoregulating material. So it isn’t stuffy, keeping your mattress airy and cool. It’s also free from volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which contribute to indoor air pollution. By upcycling this natural material, we prevent the denim scraps from ending up in the landfill.

Naturally Contouring Buckwheat Hulls

Most of our popular yoga cushions are filled with 100% natural buckwheat hulls. Buckwheat is a natural material that's actually not a wheat or grain. The hulls are small and sturdy. We use “fluffy” buckwheat, which means our hulls have been steam-cleaned and dusted. They are a wonderfully supportive and breathable. When used as a fill, their size and odd shape allows the hulls to move around easily, adjusting to your body and providing support right where it's needed. And of course, they are natural, renewable, and biodegradable.

Recycled Steel for Durable Innersprings

Spring coils have been used in mattresses for decades, serving those who are looking for a traditional mattress support system. Steel is also sustainable — it's 100 percent recyclable, the most recycled material in the world. We use recycled steel wire of various gauges in the production of our pocketed innerspring units — essential to our hybrid mattress designs. Encasing coils individually and thoughtfully placing them in 5 zones improve this classic sleep experience by providing distinct and precise support.

Cooling & Purifying Charcoal-Infused Memory Foam

Charcoal is a natural material full of beneficial properties that are perfect for mattresses and pillows, like temperature and moisture control. It helps keep you dry, cool, and comfortable — all night long. Our activated charcoal-infused, high-density memory foam helps facilitate a cooler sleep environment, using open-cell technology and purifying activated charcoal to draw heat and moisture away from the body and prevent hot spots.

Soft, Light Tencel® Made from Wood Pulp

TENCEL® is a soft, versatile fiber made from wood pulp. The manufacturing process is complex: wood is harvested from sustainably managed sources, treated with solvents in a closed-loop system, where it is dissolved, before being dried, extruded, and ultimately spun into yarn and woven into cloth. Because it’s plant-based, it’s biodegradable. We use Tencel® selectively — as a soft, durable ticking on our Oceano mattress.
