ESSENTIA

Essentia was started by Jack Dell'Accio when he found out a family member had cancer. He began researching how many toxins were in everyday items, including mattresses, and he sought to provide foam for mattresses, made from natural ingredients.

Essentia's offers several different foam mattresses (including a baby crib foam mattress) that have:

  • Unbleached Organic Cotton
  • Organic dyes
  • Absolutely no adhesives
  • No chemical odor
  • Allergy-free sleep environment
  • 80% more breathable than conventional memory foam
  • Faster recovery time
  • Biodegradable

The Essentia website is very clean and easy to navigate. A helpful chart is provided comparing Essentia's foam mattresses to other memory foam, latex foam and spring mattresses. There are many links from the homepage that are informational in living "Green" in other areas besides just your mattress. The company is based in Canada, but has a few couple retail locations in the US. They offer Free Shipping, a 60-day money back guarantee and a limited 20-year warranty.

Essentia is the most natural foam mattress option available. Customers rave that comfort and support has not be compromised with the natural ingredients. They offer great customer service with their shipping and guarantees. The one thing that kept them from topping the review is that they are a young company. A 20-year warranty isn't worth anything if the company is not longer around. We believe they are here to stay, but due to their new status, we were hesitant to rank them the highest.

NECTAR

Foam mattresses seem to be one of the hottest items on the market lately, and Nectar is one of the newest contenders hoping for your business.

At first glance, the Nectar mattress sounds amazing:

  • 365-night trial: use the mattress for a full year. If you're not happy, Nectar will refund your money and pick up the mattress at no cost to you.
  • "Forever Warranty": guaranteed for as long as you own the mattress.
  • Free shipping and returns
  • Quality construction: cooling cover, several types of foam (such as quilted gel memory and adaptive hi-core memory), CertiPUR-US Certified

And, if you look at the main page, Nectar proudly claims that it has earned awards and accolades from comparison sites and reviewers for being the most comfortable mattress: "A Better Mattress for a Better Price". And yes, Nectar foam mattresses are priced more competitively than others on the market, starting at $500 for a twin and going up to $900 for a California king.

Unfortunately, the rest of those claims may be too good to be true. As we dug down into the details of Nectar, we found numerous red flags. First, the only contact information available on the Nectar website is an email address. We found out that there used to be a live chat feature and a toll-free number that have since been disabled.

We also learned that both of the addresses used for Nectar - the one currently listed on the Better Business Bureau's entry for Nectar and the one previously used - are both residential locations in California, not an office or warehouse location. And, with respect to the BBB, not only is Nectar not accredited or rated, but there are also more than 50 complaints registered there alone.

What is making customers so unhappy about Nectar? We found dozens of customers whose mattresses took weeks or months to ship - from China - if it shipped at all. If you're looking for a USA-made product, this isn't it. And, when those customers tried to get a refund, they had no way other than email to contact the company directly; some had to file a claim of fraud with their bank or credit card company just to get their money back.

In fact, it was difficult to find a trustworthy review that had anything good to say about the Nectar buying experience or the mattress itself. However, because Nectar is still relatively new to the market, and because their trial period, warranty length, and prices are very competitive, we're interested to see if these problems are just because the company is still working out the kinks. Hopefully, in the not-too-distant-future, there will be more feedback available from customers who actually received the mattress.

Foam Mattresses

To help you find the Best Foam Mattresses, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Essentia and Nectar.

Foam Mattresses are the latest trend in the mattress industry. A few years ago consumers were able to choose between one or two foam mattress brands - but now, several companies compete in the memory foam mattress business.

Adults are attracted to both the comfort and support that a well-made foam mattress provides, especially over the standard spring mattress. Many people that have complained of back pain for years are now finding relief from simply buying a new mattress made of foam. The design of foam mattresses eliminates the pressure points that can cause body pain and restless sleep.

With a number of new companies entering the foam mattress market, it's important to know what to look for when shopping for a foam mattress. Before you make the move to purchase a foam mattress, you should consider the following:

  • Cost.  What is the price range for the foam mattresses offered?
  • Customer Feedback.  What are customers saying about their experiences with the foam mattresses and the company's they bought them from?
  • Return Policy.  In the event you're not satisfied with your purchase, does the company enable you to return the foam mattress for a full refund?
  • Guarantee.  If your foam mattress breaks or disappoints you in a few years, is it still covered under warranty? For how long?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Foam Mattresses available today. We hope these reviews help you find that perfect night's sleep right away!
