​​​​​​  Important; I am not nor have I ever been in the mattress industry. I do not have an allegiance to any mattress firm, nor am I paid for my views.   

My opinions and views are based on my own consumer experience with my Berkeley Ergonomics mattress, the Berkeley Ergonomics dealers,

and Berkeley Ergonomics themselves in Ontario Calif.

Berkeley Ergonomics repeatedly claims that I am a competitor or paid by a competitor but this is just another misrepresentation.

Polypropylene

False organic false natural claim

Because of all the aggressive "all natural mattress", "organic mattress", and "natural mattress" type claims, I believe most consumers have the expectation that the Berkeley coil mattresses are "free of synthetics", like what happened to me.  Then additionally when the synthetic Polypropylene material is not listed along with the other materials, this further feeds into the [false] expectation. I do not understand why the synthetic Polypropylene component cannot be included  when the other components are listed.  Why is there such resistance to list it?

 - The mattresses are not "organic mattresses".

 - The exterior cover is not an "organic cover".

 - The coil model contains Polypropylene.

 - The latex is not organic, and so much more... 

Beware of False Organic Claims, undisclosed synthetic Polypropylene, 

Never buy a mattress with a very thick quilted top.

Berkeley Ergonomics had the below false 'organic mattress' claim on the home page of their web site 

so I'm not surprised the dealers are allowed to make claims as such. 

It seems to be the culture around Berkeley Ergonomics.

   

And then there's this glaring, long time,  

False Organic Claim.

I wonder if the reason Berkeley Ergonomics dealers do not include the synthetic Polypropylene along with the other components in the mattress descriptions, and why Berkeley Ergonomics does not mandate their contracted dealers to include it when ever they are listing the other components, is because the synthetic material ​does not fit in their "natural" narrative?

false "organic mattress" claim to Andrea Karsten, one of Berkeley Ergo's owners, she denied any such claim could be on her site.

I'm not the only person to be duped by a Berkeley Ergonomics dealer.

I find it contrary that Berkeley Ergonomics claims that they "Believe in Openness-Nothing to hide, No secrets"

yet there is such GREAT resistance to list the synthetic Polypropylene component when the other components are being listed.


It is also absurd to me that Berkeley Ergo claims they "strive to operate a business successfully with no 

compromises on truth, ethics, integrity, &fairness", yet they have my reviews & my mattress photos removed 

from public view and their dealers make false "All natural mattress", "Organic mattress",and "chemical free" type claims.  See some of the false organic claims here.

Berkeley Ergonomics denies false organic claims

​​​I brought this dealer-wide "undisclosed Polypropylene matter" to the attention of Berkeley Ergonomics assuming they would mandate their contracted dealers to include the Polypropylene component when ever the components are being listed (so consumers can have all the information), however I don't believe 

this will ever occur. Berkeley Ergonomic owners Colin Hunter & Andrea Karsten won't discuss this matter with me, so I have no confidence changes will be made, hence the reason and necessity for this site.        


I'm stunned that Berkeley Ergonomics wouldn't rather have their synthetic Polypropylene listed along with the other components in a professional setting, instead of having me alerting consumers to it on the internet.   

For clarity, I'm not asking Berkeley Ergonomics dealers to list something that is NOT in their mattress. I am asking them to list what IS in their mattress.

Is this so unreasonable?

When I found out that my Berkeley Ergo coil mattress contained Polypropylene and that it was not "all organic" like the sales man said, I checked the web sites of all the Berkeley Ergo mattress dealers and saw that none of them list the synthetic Polypropylene along with the other components even though they list, describe, and praise all the other components in great detail. I thought it was very alarming that none of the dealers were disclosing this synthetic component, yet they were referring to the mattress as "all natural", "organic mattress", "chemical free" & alike.

Consumers- Please know that I am not monitoring the dealers for correction, so just know that Polypropylene is present in the coil mattresses, in case the dealers "forget" to mention it, and remember to ask to see the CURRENT 2-page Material Health Certificate for the latex 'cause I doubt it will be proactively provided.

Below are quotes from two consumers who bought Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses. 

If you want an organic bed with no chemicals I'm the only one in San Diego who sells them.

Our bed is ok but not worth the extra money.  If  you are going to spend $4000.00 on a bed it should be awesome not just ok.  I sleep better on the mattresses at the Marriott.  The staff are helpful and professional which is appreciated.

Polypropylene formula

Remember:

   -Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses are  not "organic mattresses".
   -Berkeley Ergonomics exterior cover is
not  an "organic cover".

   -Berkeley Ergonomics backing  material is  not organic.

   -The latex Berkeley Ergonomics uses is not organic.

   -Berkeley Ergonomics manufacturing facility is not  certified.
       -Berkeley Ergo coil mattresses contain a lot of synthetic Polypropylene.


Turns out that the Berkeley Ergonomics coil mattresses contain a lot of synthetic Polypropylene.  The Polypropylene covers all the springs in the mattress.  

It is not a small amount that could be missed. 


The latex in my Berkeley Ergo coil mattress also contains 23 chemicals.  22 of the chemicals deemed "moderately problematic, but acceptable for use"

and one chemical deemed "unknown".  You can view the 2-page Material Health Certificate for the latex used in my bed here.


If anyone is thinking of buying a Berkeley Ergonomics mattress it is just my recommendation that they ask to see the CURRENT  2-page Material Health Certificate, like shown here on this site, so you can see how many chemicals you will be sleeping on.

  Look what these two Berkeley Ergonomics customers think about their beds: 

Denial

This site contains important information if you are thinking of buying a Berkeley Ergonomics mattress or are seeking Berkeley Ergonomics mattress reviews. It also contains other information Berkeley's dealers may not proactively provide. Also learn about the owners of Berkeley Ergonomics in Ontario, Calif., Colin Hunter & Andrea Karsten.

Would you want to have a warranty issue with these people?

​​UPDATE:  After weeks of conflict with Berkeley Ergonomics, and my communication with some dealers, a few of the dealers have added the Polypropylene to their web sites but most do not list the Polypropylene in the descriptions along with all the other materials for easy view of their readers and potential customers.  Instead it's in tiny print, FAQ, or another page or section.

Why there is such resistance to include the synthetic material when the other materials are being listed? 


Could the dealers be trying to minimize the exposure of the synthetic Polypropylene component to

their readers and  potential customers?    

Is this Berkeley Ergonomics dealer "practicing medicine"? 

Is this proper?   Or legal?
