There are two huge problems every mattress owner faces: heat and germs. When our CEO was on the hunt for a new mattress, he knew it had to be clean, while also maintaining the perfect sleep temperature.
After searching far and wide, he couldn't believe there wasn't a mattress resolving these issues.
"There has to be a better mattress," he thought.
So he decided to create his own, and PangeaBed was born.
Our not-so-secret weapon that makes our mattress truly extraordinary? Copper, infused into a layer of Talalay latex.
We know it sounds like a weird choice, and you're probably wondering:
"What does copper have to do with sleep?!"
Copper is a powerhouse element, and incredibly beneficial to your sleep.
Here are four reasons why:
1. Copper Cools
Overheating is one of the biggest complaints for memory foam mattress sleepers, which is why on top of a cooling layer of memory foam, we integrated a layer of copper-infused Talalay latex into our mattress. Copper transfers heat, so it keeps you at the perfect temperature while you sleep.
2. Copper Is Antibacterial
Everybody knows mattresses can get dirty, but just how dirty? A newer mattress holds about three million colony-forming units of bacteria, while a 7-year-old mattress has more than 16 million. Since you can't just toss your mattress in the washing machine, you have to stop the bacteria from growing in the first place. That's where copper comes in. Copper has antibacterial properties that inhibit and ultimately destroy the growth of these microscopic enemies before they turn your bed into their own personal breeding ground.
3. Copper Is Antimicrobial
Copper is also antimicrobial. How does this differ from being antibacterial? We're glad you asked. In addition to the millions of bacteria residing in your mattress, various types of fungi, molds and viruses that can make you sick also live there. Just like copper inhibits the growth of bacteria, it also inhibits the growth of the fungi, molds, and viruses thriving within your mattress.
4. Copper Is Healthy
The average person spends one-third of their life on their mattress. While you sleep, you breathe in everything that makes your mattress its home: bacteria, fungi and viruses. So, having a clean mattress matters. Copper keeps your mattress clean by inhibiting the growth of bacteria and other microbials, ensuring you have a healthy night's rest. As an added bonus, copper is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, so you get these amazing health benefits without the addition of any potentially harmful chemicals or treatments.
