Naturally Hypoallergenic Mattress
The natural latex (or natural rubber) not only absorbs motion so that two people can sleep side-by-side undisturbed, but it's also resistant to dust mites. Dust mites cannot live inside natural rubber!
Wool is nature's ideal bedding material. The lanolin in the wool is naturally hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and resistant to dust mites and bed bugs. Wool is also naturally flame resistant, and it absorbs moisture very efficiently. This is important for allergy sufferers because moist, humid conditions encourage the growth of bacteria, mold, and dust mites. Wool can take in up to 30% of its weight in moisture. Synthetic fibers, on the other hand, can hold as little as 2%.A Chemical-Free Sleep Experience
The primary chemical used as a flame retardant in standard mattresses in boric acid, a poisonous pesticide. The EPA and CDC warn that it can cause reproductive, developmental, and neurological damage. This dangerous chemical is going into mattresses, where it can be absorbed by the skin! If your mattress tag reads "treated cotton," then it's likely treated with boric acid. Boric acid is also a known respiratory irritant and has been shown to reduce sexual activity and sperm counts.
Conventional mattresses may also contain antimony, formaldehyde, silicon, benzene, toluene, phthalates, chlorine, and ammonium polyphosphate - all dangerous chemicals that can irritate allergies and possibly lead to chemical sensitivity. In fact, many experts believe that environmental toxins in the home are to blame for the increases in allergies and asthma as well as other diseases like ADD, autism, and cancer.
