Activated charcoal is made from burning carbon-rich materials, like wood or coconut shells, at very high temperatures. This process reduces the size of the pores, making it super porous, like a sponge. It’s porous texture is negatively charged which helps attract and trap toxins from the environment around it. It’s commonly used in hospitals to treat poisoning and overdosing, but it’s also useful in many non-life threatening situations as well.
This unique highly absorbent property of activated charcoal makes it an ideal additive for memory foam, promoting a clean sleep environment and a less humid sleeping experience. We've paired this excellent combination of materials with our 3.5lb high-density memory foam and machine washable cover for a complete and restorative sleep experience.
We used our best selling topper as the foundation for the Charcoal. The Select High Density's foam was designed with a medium support feel that "gives" with a slightly plush feel when you first lie on it, but pushes back with resilient support after your body settles. The denseness feels high-end and has been proven to maintain its resilience longer than comparable foams.
The Select High Density Charcoal topper is a perfect choice for college students looking to make their dorm bed more comfortable. Infused with activated charcoal, it helps to control odor and absorb moisture - giving that extra dose of cleanliness to a dorm mattress.
