House dust mites are types of arachnids that are invisible to the naked eye, thrive in homes, and feed on dead skin and food waste. They are omnipresent and prefer warm and humid places like bedding in bedrooms. Dust mites specifically trigger certain respiratory complaints (such as asthma, perennial allergic rhinitis) along with certain cases of eye inflammations and eczema flare-ups.
GERANIOL, a plant-based active substance, is what enables Greenfirst® treated mattress ticking to offer outstanding performance against dust mites. It is combined with a mixture of natural essential oils.
Geraniol is often extracted from a plant known as Palmarosa.
