Is there such a thing as an anti-allergy mattress? My daughter wakes up every morning with a skin irritation and watery eyes and I believe it is from her mattress. Thank you for your help.
Your daughter may be allergic to latex. We recommend consulting with your physician and consider having her tested for latex allergies. Latex can often times be found in mattresses, especially in newer mattresses that use a “topper”. These “toppers” are built into the mattress for added comfort, but can contain natural rubber latex.
Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) is an eco-friendly latex material that significantly reduces the antigenic proteins found in natural rubber latex, a key element in mattress toppers. Produced through a novel, patented process, Vytex NRL retains all the positive qualities of latex but contains virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins that may cause latex allergies.
For more information on allergies, visit the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology website. For further information on Vytex NRL and the role the company is playing to help those that have a mattress allergy, or to find products made with Vytex NRL. We also recommend looking for the “Vytex® NRL” logo for a better latex with significantly reduced antigenic protein levels.
