WebMD describes hypoallergenic as something that “causes fewer allergic reactions than other products.” This does not indicate that there are no allergens released by the product, item, or animal. It only implies that there are fewer allergens than you might find in a similar product made with different ingredients or with a different style of manufacturing.
Are Latex Mattresses Hypoallergenic?
Pure, organic latex, the kind that is used to make PlushBeds Botanical Bliss latex mattresses is hypoallergenic by its own nature. The raw ingredients aren’t man-made. The latex is made from the sap of a rubber tree.
It’s not a derivative of petrochemicals. Even the open cell construction of natural latex mattresses means that any allergens are washed away as the raw rubber tree sap is transformed into latex foam mattresses.
You must understand, though, that most hybrid latex mattresses and synthetic latex mattresses types are not hypoallergenic. They do not have the same properties, they do use petrochemical derivatives, and they are not manufactured in the same manner as natural organic latex mattresses.
How Can You Tell the Difference?
Most people can’t eyeball a mattress and tell the difference between 100 percent natural latex and a hybrid or synthetic latex mattress. In the beginning they may feel similar. Some people do notice the “off gassing” of a synthetic latex mattress and to a lesser degree with a hybrid latex mattress. On sight alone, though, it may be difficult to tell the difference.
It’s the same with latex mattresses from one latex mattress manufacturer to another as well. That’s why it’s important to turn to outside sources for validation and confirmation that mattresses are truly hypoallergenic or even that they are truly as organic as they claim to be.
PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattresses have two important distinctions that separates them from other mattress makers as well as other PlushBeds models. The Botanical Bliss collection is the crème de la crème of the PlushBeds family of products, and is proud to be GreenGuard Gold Certified as well as GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) certified.
These certifications aren’t awarded lightly. PlushBeds wears them as badges of honor that show the world our commitment to delivering mattresses made of only the finest ingredients and manufactured to the highest of standards.
Other Benefits of Pure, Organic Latex Mattresses
In addition to being hypoallergenic, PlushBeds natural latex mattresses are also anti-microbial, dust mite resistant, and antibacterial, which is one of the important reasons why natural latex makes for a healthier mattress and the best mattress for allergies. This is a real win for people who suffer from common allergies as well as those who are interested in purchasing mattresses that are earth-friendly.
If you’re considering a latex mattress to aid in your personal war against allergies, don’t forget to look for a mattress that is 100 percent natural, organic latex.
