When shopping for a mattress, whether it is a latex mattress, organic mattress, innerspring mattress, or memory foam mattress, you’ll come across a number of terms — many of which you’ll know, and others you may not know.
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.
You will come across many questions as you shop around for mattresses and compare products and prices. It’s always important to know what you’re getting so that you can make apples to apples comparisons as you explore your mattress options.
On occasion, you’ll come across terms such as natural latex mattresses or organic latex mattresses. On the surface, they seem to say the same things. But, there is a significant difference between natural latex and organic latex.
