Is Latex Hypoallergenic?

Latex is not hypoallergenic. According to the American Latex Allergy Association, about 1% of the general US population are sensitized have an allergy with natural rubber latex. The rate is higher among healthcare workers. 

Many natural mattress companies falsely claim that their latex is hypoallergenic, which it logically cannot be if 1% of the US population has a latex allergy. We do not make this claim and recognize that a mattress made with organic latex may not be appropriate for those with an existing latex allergy. 

However, our latex is GOLS organic certified, eco-INSTITUT® certified, anti-microbial, Greenguard Gold certified, breathable, durable, resilient and sustainable.
