BURLINGTON, N.C., Jan. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hohenstein Institute® announces that BedInABox®.com, the US manufacturer and Internet retailer of high quality, technologically advanced memory foam mattresses, has been awarded Hohenstein's Skin Friendly quality label. BedInABox®.com's CoolRest Gel® memory foam mattresses have been extensively tested to confirm that they do not harm skin cells in ways that could lead to discomfort and interrupted sleep.
"People spend about 1/3 of their lives in bed," says Matt Burgess, Sr. Vice President, BedInABox®.com. "We want our products to help make that time relaxing and restorative. We invest extensively in our CoolRest Gel® memory foam mattresses to guarantee that they are comfortable and provide peaceful rest for the entire family."
Hohenstein's Skin Friendly quality label calls for products to be tested for interactions with live human skin cells. Samples undergo a series of evaluations to determine whether contact with skin cells damages them in ways that could result in skin irritation and discomfort. BedInABox®.com's CoolRest Gel® memory foam mattresses were analyzed and found to meet Hohenstein's stringent criteria for being biocompatible with and non-irritating to skin cells.
In addition to being skin friendly, BedInABox®.com's CoolRest Gel® memory foam mattresses are designed to relieve pressure points, dissipate body heat, and recover their shape quickly. BedInABox.com is also committed to improving the environmental impact of its memory foam by further decreasing the percentage of petroleum based raw materials used in the manufacturing process. CoolRest Gel® memory foam is manufactured in the USA.
"BedInABox.com clearly takes the health and well-being of every customer very seriously," says Dr. Sam Moore, managing director of Hohenstein Institute® America. "They establish comprehensive quality standards for their CoolRest Gel® memory foam mattresses then test them thoroughly to confirm that every requirement is met."
