Essentia Founder Jack Dell'Accio appeared on The SUZANNE Show this week on Lifetime Television

BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Dell'Accio, Founder and CEO of Essentia, the only company in the world that makes all-natural memory foam mattresses, appeared on The SUZANNE Show this week to reveal the truth about toxins in our bedrooms.  His appearance, which is part of a series devoted to a cleaner, "greener" home, aired Wednesday, October 10th, at 7:00 am (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television.

Many synthetic substances that we come into contact with during our daily lives release chemicals called "volatile organic compounds."  These emanations, also known as VOC's, are responsible for the freshly manufactured aroma of a new car interior, couch, carpet, or mattress.  Unfortunately this odor is actually a mixture of potentially deadly toxins that continue to enter our body long after their smell becomes unnoticeable.

"There are over 60 VOC's in the average mattress," says Dell'Accio, "and since we spend over a third of our life in bed, our contact with them is more intense than other types of chemicals."

Instead of synthetic latex or polyurethane, Essentia memory foam mattresses are made from rubber tree sap called hevia milk.  Grapefruit seed, jasmine, and corn oils are used for consistency, the adhesives are solvent free, and the cover is non-toxic Kevlar®.  The result is a mattress that provides the support and comfort of memory foam without dangerous chemical emissions.

Essentia mattresses also resist dirt, body fluids, and dust mites, which can cause regular mattresses to double in weight over a ten year period.  Tune in Wednesday to learn more about natural memory foam and to find out other tips for a toxin-free bedroom.  For more information about Essentia, visit
