Nectar’s legal team has advised us that some of the “annotations are false, unsubstantiated, and grossly misleading to consumers.”  We take such a claim very seriously and want to ensure the information is 100% accurate.  Since the original publication of this article Nectar has made updates to their comparison chart.  Please find the below chart as the current comparison as of October 4, 2017.

Nectar Comparison

1. No bed bug guarantee. Nectar’s cover is made of Tencel. If you’re not familiar with this material here is an explanation of how it’s made.  We will inquire with Nectar’s team for anything that will verify this claim.

Tencel

TENCEL® fibers come from nature and make use of photosynthesis which has, since the beginning of time, been an important mechanism in nature and the basis for life on earth. In photosynthesis, the energy from the sun is absorbed by various dyestuffs, primarily green chlorophyll, and converted into chemical energy. In this respect, the starting products of carbon dioxide and water are converted into dextrose and oxygen. The more TENCEL® fibers you have, the more oxygen. Source Lenzing-Fibers.com

Nectar’s claims are that their cover is “bed bug resistant” – yet – we cannot find anything that will verify that other than the two claims they make on their website.

2. Free replacement cover.  UPDATE – As of October 9, 2017, Nectar is running an ad campaign offering a free cover on Facebook.

According to the FAQ’s as of October 4, 2017 the only reference to a replacement cover states “We don’t currently offer replacement covers for sale, however, that is something we are working on in the future.”

4. Nectar claims online brands cooling system is “Gel Chemical Spray”.  There are many different types of cooling used in the mattress industry.  A very small percentage of companies still make their mattress in China where they have, in the past, used spray on cooling technology.  To represent all online brands as using this application method is simply false.  Some companies have gel cooling in the memory foam.  Some companies use state of the art fabric that actually has the cool technology woven into the thread.

5. Nectar claims online brands sleep trials are 77 – 110 days.  With over 150+ online brands this statement should be updated.  For example, Intellibed (see here) offers a 60-day trial and Aloha Sleep (see here) offers a 500-day sleep trial.
