Our mattresses are great for people with allergies and multiple chemical sensitivities because our mattresses are hypoallergenic due to the STRICT organic processing protocol that eliminates any antigenic proteins.
There is nothing in our mattresses that can harm you, because it is all certified organic.
- Clean your room prior to installation with a clean filtered vacuum cleaner. I bought a heavy duty canister vacuum and it works very well, even on tile and hardwood floors. We clean the filter after every room with an air compressor.
- Dust with natural cleaners, such as a mixture of olive oil, vinegar, and no more than two of your favorite essential oils such as lemon, grapefruit, orange, clove, geranium, rose oil, or thrive oil with distilled water.
- Don’t forget to open the window to let any VOCs escape.
- Check air quality with Breeze O Meter (Free App for your phone and computer).
- Unfortunately, polyurethane foam breeds bacteria, and for that reason I recommend Smudging. Smudging is a ceremonial burning of plants and herb resins to purify the air that is supported by scientific evidence of healing (read about it here on GreenMedInfo.com). This practice extends back to ancient times. Current research uncovers that smudging may really have life-sparing ramifications by filtering the air of unsafe microbes.
When people tell me they are allergic to latex, what they really are allergic to is synthetic latex, such as that used in rubber gloves, the talc powder in rubber gloves, or a synthetic latex mattress they purchased that is loaded with a toxic soup of harmful chemicals. Synthetic latex (called SBR) is toxic to the lungs, liver, and brain. Here is a great article about synthetic rubber.
Sometimes people are allergic to antigenic protein in Havea latex. However, the protein in our latex has been washed out, so no worries there.
We would be happy to send you a sample that you can put it against your skin to see if you have a reaction. In over ten years we have never seen one.
