Mattress Toppers are similar to the Futon Mattress but approx 5 cm thick. They are ideal for extra protection for your mattress or for extra warmth. Organic cotton toppers are NOT the same as conventional toppers. Unlike conventional Cotton Toppers, (which are allowed to have 5% undisclosed filling), ours do not have any chemical filled foam or latex to give them a softer feel. As cotton does not have any memory (like foam or latex), they will not spring back into their original form.
Our mattress toppers are not a solution to give comfort on an existing mattress which you may find uncomfortable as they are not made from memory foam only organic natural fibre and will mirror the problems that you are experiencing with your current mattress.
Natural fibre futons and toppers are perfect for children as children are lighter in weight and thus slowly compress the filling, adjusting to the firmer sleeping surface. A topper can be used on top of your old conventional mattress as protection from chemical out-gassing if finances are a bit tight, however, this is not the ultimate answer to ridding your bed and bedroom of chemicals. A full Organic Cotton Mattress on an Australian Hardwood Timber Bed Base, is really the ideal solution.
Please note, that as per all products made from natural fibre, our Organic Cotton Topper will start off quite full and but very quickly become flat and firm.
Our mattress toppers are NOT waterproofed. Water-proofing is achieved with a plasticizing or chemical treatment and as we believe that chemicals contribute to a wide range of health issues, including asthma, eczema, attention deficit and especially Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), we will not use it. However, along with our organic mattress protectors and organic mattress overlays or organic mattress protector pads, you are guaranteed to have the BEST ORGANIC WATER RESISTANT product that’s currently available in Australia today … and the safest!
No Polyurethane Foam. No Formaldehyde, No Chemical fire retardants, No Polyester, No Synthetics, No moth-proofing chemicals, No anti-dustmite chemicals, No ultra fresh chemical, No toxic Petro-chemicals, No harmful latex.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE ON AN EXISTING MATTRESS AND BED BASE
When purchasing Organature 100% Organic Cotton Topper to place on an existing mattress and bed base, a word of advice from Peter. When re-using existing bed bases and a conventional mattress, first make sure your bed base is free of mould. The best way to remove the mould is to wash/wipe thoroughly all over the base with a solution of ‘Borax’ in hot water. Follow the directions on the Borax pack. Borax is available from most supermarkets, but unfortunately it’s most likely found in the smelly soap isles.
If you are going to put the new topper on an existing mattress, this is the most important part:
- Either wrap plastic all around your existing mattress or at least on top and on sides of mattress; use the bags the toppers come in as they are polyethylene; the least toxic plastic. It is also less toxic than most conventional mattresses, and much less harmful that mould.
- Use our Organic Cotton Mattress Protector over the plastic. The walls of the protector tuck well under the mattress, however the fabric over the plastic will slide. If you don’t like the ‘feel’ of that plastic under you, the best option is to use our Organic Fleece Mattress Overlay on top of the mattress with the protector over that.
- Air the mattress protector as often as you can.
- Purchase an Organic Cotton Innerspring Mattress as soon as you are able.
All our mattresses and toppers are individually handmade, we only use certified organic cotton in its purest state, and none of our products are fumigated due to medical exemptions in order for your health, comfort and peace of mind. Free from dangerous toxic chemicals like those used to create waterproofing, insect proofing and flame proofing. Your health and well-being is our priority!

REVIEW: Kylie | |Bought the mattress protector with mattress topper after concerns about our fully water proof one – very happy with the purchase and even noticed it is so much cooler as well. Highly recommended.

- With care they will last longer than any other mattress. (Peter has had his 100% Organic Cotton Queen mattress since 2006 and it shows no deterioration.)
- Extremely re-saleable, (especially the cot mattress).
- More than 99% compostable and recyclable.
If you would like more protection for the mattress – which is a great idea especially for babies or if you are concerned about other potential soiling – we suggest putting a mattress protector pad in sleeping positions, then finishing with a fitted sheet.
Mattresses should never be placed directly on to the floor. They need to breathe to avoid mould growth, common with conventional mattresses.
Our Certified Organic Cotton is a natural product that has airflow as it is a breathing product. This in turn allows your body to breathe and naturally rejuvenate itself from the toxins picked up from the environment during the day, releasing them while you sleep, which is just one of the many benefits of the Organature mattress.
It is for this reason also that we recommend the mattress be supported by a hardwood slat bed base. These allow the mattress to get continual air flow and assist your immune system even more. See our excellent range of non toxic Hardwood Bed Bases.
Organature Mattresses and Futons are made with GOTS Certified Organic Cotton fabrics and fillings
There’s a big difference between ‘natural’, ‘organic’ and truly chemical free ‘Certified Organic’. Organature® Mattresses are unique to Australia, assembled and filled with the purest ingredients, manufactured to the highest standards and with the cleanest transporting currently available in Australia. Free from dangerous toxic chemicals like those used to create waterproofing, insect proofing and flame proofing. Health and well-being is our priority!
Regularly rotate and flip your new organic cotton innerspring or futon mattress when you first start using it. Usually, turning every few weeks within the first few months is adequate, so long as the bed base you are using is one that allows full airflow around the mattress.
Make sure that your organic cotton mattress is not placed against walls or furnishings (such as curtains or solid bed heads), as these will prevent sufficient air flowing around all sides of the mattress too. A lack of airflow will cause a build-up of condensation which will in turn create conditions that often lead to the growth of mould, especially when placed against something that is not natural or chemical free — that is why using our Hardwood Slat Bed Bases are so strongly recommended. As many layers of carded cotton are used to create the sleeping surface, the mattress will have a rounded look until the cotton settles. The body will flatten this cotton, and the regular rotating and flipping over, of the mattress, helps the soft cotton wadding layers to settle. If no-one sleeps in the middle area of the mattress, that middle area will not settle.
On larger mattresses, someone is advised to sleep or lie in the middle section/area of both sides of the mattress, to help the ‘middle / central’ wadding layers to settle; otherwise, the middle area will remain soft, fluffy and slightly raised. The cotton can take a couple of weeks, to a month or more to settle (flatten), depending on the weight, and time spent on it.

Did you know that frequently present in conventional mattresses and bedding are *High Volatile Organic compounds (VOCs) like phosphorus, arsenic and antimony, and nerve toxins like formaldehyde, benzene, and toluene? Whether they be in the petroleum based, Polyurethane foam, the petroleum and chlorine-based Vinyl or PVC used for waterproofing (a known carcinogen, let alone, one of the most environmentally unfriendly plastics used today), or the petroleum based Fire Retardants … separately or together … they make up a toxic soup that is linked to immune suppression, hormone disruption, developmental delays, learning and memory problems, behaviour changes, and cancer.
