Springs, Henson debut BioFlex Hybrid foam
December 21, 2007,
Tupelo, Miss. – Next month, foam manufacturer Henson Sleep Relief and marketing/sales partner Springs Global will introduce BioFlex Hybrid foam products at retail. The line of foam mattress pads and pillows, which will launch at major merchandisers in January, will retail from $12 to $400.
“Consumers will feel good about doing something for the environment and at the same time supporting American soybean farmers,” said Jane Enis, president of Henson Sleep Relief.
BioFlex Hybrid Foam is made by Flexible Foam Products, Inc., with a patented process called EnviroFlex technology. Cargill developed the soy-based ingredients, known as BiOH polyols, that replace a portion of the petroleum products used in BioFlex Hybrid foams.
The soy-blend foam is already being used by a number of manufacturers in the furniture industry, the company said.
