Microscopic dust mites are the most common allergy trigger in bedding—and the most hidden. Known to cause rashes, sneezing, itchy eyes, and a runny nose, these allergy symptoms are often experienced year-round. Severe reactions sometimes even lead to asthma.

But you’re in luck. Studies have shown that infusing activated charcoal into memory foam (think mattresses, pillows, and toppers) actually transforms your bed into an environment dust mites can’t survive so you and your family can sleep dust-mite-free.

But what is activated charcoal?

Activated charcoal is a fine, odorless powder primarily made from wood. Dr. Oz Good Life™ uses sustainable bamboo as the source of our activated charcoal. That bamboo is exposed to extremely high temperatures in an airless environment, which activates its ability to bind to substances and particles like poisons and toxins.

Used for thousands of years as a treatment for poisoning, activated charcoal was first documented by the Egyptians in 1550 B.C. However, in recent years its application has broadened. Today you’ll find it in toothpaste, water filters, skincare face masks, deodorant, and health drinks, to name a few.

One very exciting new application is the process of infusing activated charcoal in memory foam used in mattresses, pillows, and toppers. And recent studies have shown its powerful properties actively inhibit dust mites, specifically. This is great news for individuals suffering from dust mite allergies—a very common condition.

Another impactful memory foam infusion is CoolRelax™ gel. Known to pull heat away from the body, our gel-infused memory foam sleeps cooler than traditional memory foam. Paired with our powerful activated charcoal infusion, you can access clean and cool sleep.

If you’re ready to sleep in a cleaner, cooler, healthier space, check out our Dr. Oz Good Life™ sleep products today.
