Meet Our New Mattress Topper
Brief History of Copper
The antimicrobial benefits of copper have been known since early Egyptian civilization, where copper was used to sharpen and clean weapons after battle and shavings of the metal were placed in wounds to speed up the healing process. In scientific terms, copper has a free electron in its outer orbit, which facilitates oxidation-reduction reactions. As a result, when a germ lands on copper, the ions attack it by suffocating its cells and making holes in the virus’ coat - accelerating the pathogen’s death. This quick and microscopic war also prevents viral mutations by destroying the DNA and RNA inside the germ with atomic bullets composed of oxygen. Why is this so important and impressive? Because it means that COVID-19 and other viruses cannot develop resistance to copper. And, the best part? These atomic properties never wear off… not even when copper tarnishes.
Ways Copper is Currently Used
In the last several decades, copper has been used for other medical research, including the manufacture of hospital beds with this material. The results have always concluded similarly: copper helps repel bacteria. The use of copper products in medical facilities has been trending worldwide, showing up to a 58% decrease in infection rates. While many companies are not yet aware of the natural benefits of copper, we are proud to be at the vanguard, once again, of the mattress industry by creating a product that uses this technology. So, how does our Copper Topper™ work?
About The Copper Topper
A mattress topper is a layer that sits on top of the mattress to provide additional support and cushioning. Because they are primarily used as an additional layer of comfort, mattress toppers are typically made out of feathers, memory foam, latex, and/or gel. Our toppers are designed with memory foam, not only to give support and softness, but also to keep your mattress and your body temperature cool. We offer an optional soft-knit TENCEL™ cover with all of our toppers, for those with sensitive skin who may want an extra, ultra-soft barrier. We developed our Copper Topper™ by simply adding copper to our already perfected topper technology. With the Copper Topper™ you get additional support, comfort, cooling qualities, and natural disinfecting properties in one product. The Copper Topper™ is an affordable way to keep your sleep space clean and is now available for purchase on our website. Because copper has properties that disinfect naturally by quite literally just being there, you don’t need to worry about cleaning your mattress as regularly, either.
The Best Mattress Topper for Post COVID-19 Life at Universities
With university campuses reopening this upcoming school year, many returning families and students will focus on how to keep their living spaces clean and comfortable throughout the year. A good night’s sleep is essential to our survival -- our circadian rhythms, mental health and dreams all depend upon it for its restorative, problem-solving and sanative nature - and creating an environment that fosters quality rest is just as important at school as it is at home. One rising junior at Yale stated, “I know that I’m going to be spending more time than usual in my room and in my house, so I’m trying to focus my energy on cultivating the kind of space and community that I want there,”. The Copper Topper™ is an affordable way to keep college and university sleep spaces clean while improving the comfort of campus mattresses. Our mattress topper is guaranteed to provide the same support and pressure relief as our mattresses, while extending the life of current ones, at a lower cost. Because copper has properties that disinfect naturally, students don’t need to worry about cleaning their mattresses as regularly, either.
