AchooAllergy unveils new organic cotton dust mite bedding

AchooAllergy announces the introduction of Allergy Armor Organic, a complete line of organic cotton dust mite bedding. Like other allergy bedding encasements, Organic provides relief from common particle allergens like dust mites, pet dander and pollen. By blocking dust mites and keeping them out of the air you breathe at night, these organic covers provide relief for people coping with allergies, asthma, COPD or more severe respiratory conditions.

When asked about the motivation to redesign this product from scratch, CEO Cade McDonald explained, "Our goal was create a better product that solves two problems. We wanted to create something that performs better and does a better job of blocking allergens, but also one that ultimately looks and feels more appealing."

In addition to helping with allergies, Allergy Armor Organic covers provide the benefit of being a truly organic bedding product. Certified organic by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), a leader in organic textile certification, Allergy Armor Organic fabric is free of dyes, heavy metals and VOCs used in modern textile production. This certified fabric meets stringent guidelines from the growing of the cotton all the way to the weaving of the final product.

This certification also means that Allergy Armor Organic is free of pesticide and fertilizer residues that are often holdovers from the cotton growing process. Particularly for those with eczema, chronic dermatitis, or sensitive skin, these organic cotton covers offer a healthier alternative to traditional bedding.

Additionally, the new design improves upon the original in a couple distinct ways. Most importantly, the new organic cotton offers a better average pore size than comparable fabrics. With an average pore size of just 4.7 microns, the new covers have been independently tested and provide better protection against dust mites than the original encasements.

In addition to the pore size, the design of the covers has improved tremendously. Each organic mattress or pillow cover features a covered and hidden zipper to provide a more streamlined and smooth appearance. For the mattress covers specifically, the zipper pull tucks away neatly, completely hidden from sight. Lastly, the range of mattress sizes available has expanded to include 9, 12, and 15 inch depths with some custom sizes available.

"From working with the weavers and production team to our in-house design and sewing staff, we are proud of the changes we've made. I'm certain customers will notice the difference in the quality of our new product," states James Simmons, Product Manager at AchooAllergy.
