“I’m happy to say that I own one. And yes, in case you were wondering, it really is like sleeping on a soft, pillowy cloud of comfort. It is about as close as one can get to a nightly nirvana.”



The Luxury Firm Classic 8

The original Essentia alternative to memory foam, this healthy alternative provides a firmer contour and pressure-relieving technology that you would expect from a premium memory foam product. The Essentia formula uses natural latex which has improved elasticity resulting in proper posture support form more comfort and better recovery. 

Made In Essentia’s GOLS & GOTS Certified Organic Factory

As a GOLS and GOTS certified organic factory we ensure that not only are we using ethically sourced ingredients but also implementing the highest standards of environmental manufacturing. The process in making the Classic 8 involves formulating two cores: comfort core and support core. This latex foam formula is unique to the Classic 8 mattress and provides just the right elasticity for performance level comfort and benefits. 

The Healthiest Sleep Surface

Memory foam is known as the healthiest sleep surface for your body as it reduces pressure points, but traditional memory foam comes with a lot of cons like toxic chemicals, sleeping hot and poly foams. Essentia changed the game with the Classic 8. The Essentia manufacturing team takes pride in using the finest natural components without petroleum-based polyurethane foams, using non-chemical adhesives and no toxic flame retardant additives. Health and safety are our top priorities, many of our skilled craftsmen have been making Essentia mattresses for over 15 years without needing to use protective gear while making our clean foam. 

Cooler Than Memory Foam

One of the primary issues with memory foam mattresses are that they trap heat, in fact they are equivalent to sleeping on plastics which can result in night sweats and prevents your body from truly benefiting from its deepest sleep cycles. The memory foam mattress industry counters this by introducing phase-changing chemicals to the fabric, this ineffective process provides an initial cool touch which expires within seconds. Moreover, this process introduces additional chemicals to your sleep environment including additional fire barrier chemicals in order to stabilize the flammability of the phase-changing chemicals. Essentia is different. The surface of the Classic 8 drops on average three degrees cooler than your body temperature throughout an eight-hour sleep cycle. Our natural core wicks heat away from the body and through the core.
