Latex Allergies?

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.


The vast majority of the time, it is the chemicals in synthetic rubber/latex products that people have a reaction to. Most allergic reactions are not due to the latex itself, but to residues of chemicals used to accelerate the cross-linking process. Although this may be confused with an allergy to latex, it is actually distinct from it, typically taking the form of Type IV hypersensitivity in the presence of traces of specific processing chemicals.
 As we are exposed to more and more chemicals in our lifetime, our bodies become less and less able to handle the toxic overload.  When we get a toxic overload, it can develop into serious autoimmune diseases, cancer, and/or breathing breathing difficulties.  This is just one on the many reasons why our mattresses are the best!  

There is nothing in our mattresses that can harm you, because it is all certified organic.

Our mattresses have been lauded by people who are sensitive to smells as well.  Everything in nature has a smell to it; our latex has a very slight sweet smell. If you feel you are especially sensitive to smell, I recommend you have someone install the materials for you, and put the bedding on before you come into the room, open the windows, air out the room, wait an hour so. This should eliminate the smell.  You can even turn on a fan for a hour just to be sure the room is clear.
The mattress you have been sleeping on is likely full of toxic chemicals that are aromatic hydrocarbons.  Every time you lay down on the mattress, those chemicals spay out 8-10 inches and get attached to your household dust.  The dust becomes more toxic than drinking sludge, then it falls on the floor where your pets and babies play. They put things in their mouth, thus ingesting those harmful chemicals.  
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Don’t forget to open the window to let any VOCs escape.
  4. Check air quality with Breeze O Meter (Free App for your phone and computer).
  5. 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 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.
