Some additional info on our Evergreen Foam:
All foam is comprised of oils. These oils, regardless of origin, form the organic compound polyurethane --- it's an umbrella term that describes the chemical compound, not the source. While most conventional oils will use damaging petroleum as their base, our Evergreen Foam will only use soy, castor, and other vegetable oils. To process the liquid oil into a foam product, polyols are added; polyol is sugar-based alcohol derived from castor and vegetable oils that burns off in the manufacturing process. In short, even though foam is a man-made product, all components of our Evergreen Foam are naturally derived from plant-based oils. It's as natural as foam can come!
You can think of the process much like baking a whisky cake: the batter starts out as a liquid, but baking chemically transforms the mixture from liquid to solid, while the alcohol burns off almost entirely.
If a customer is looking for the most natural product possible, we would recommend mattresses and bedding made from raw fibres such as cotton, kapok, and wool: these are unprocessed and close to their natural source. However, we do try to offer foam cores for comfort, budgetary, and sensitivity reasons.

Care and Cleaning: Pillows, Duvets, and Bedding
As they are raw, minimally processed fibres, our products cannot be completely submerged in water without damaging the fibres within. This includes pillows and duvets.
Bedding should not remain damp, as it may encourage uneven wear or mold growth. Following a spill or cleaning, dry any moisture by placing the item in the sun or by using a hairdryer. Ensure it is fully dry before re-adding sheets or protective covers, such as our Organic Barrier Cloth Covers
