I have allergies, would Natural Latex be good for me?

  • 100% Pure Natural Latex is inherently anti-microbial and dust mite resistant; making it perfect for anyone suffering from allergies.

  • I have heard of Latex Allergies and Wool Allergies; how can I be sure they will not affect me?

    • People that are allergic to latex are normally allergic to the type of latex used in making latex gloves (workers who wear latex gloves most of the day have a risk of less than 10%) which is closed cell structure latex. Allergies to wool, normally are not true allergies to wool itself, but extreme sensitivity to the chemicals used on conventional wool. In addition to that, if one does have a true allergy to either it is normally a contact allergy, the wool and latex are both covered in our mattresses and the only thing you would be directly touching is the organic cotton outer which the wool is quilted inside of. However, we offer a free Test Kit before you purchase our products to ensure your safety.Please call us if you would be interested in one.

    Where does Natural Latex come from?

    • Natural Latex is a resin compound found in the Natural Rubber Tree (Hevea Brasiliensis), and “Tapped” from the latex ducts of the tree; contrary to popular belief it is not the tree’s sap and the trees are not damaged in the process

    I have back or joint problems and need proper support; how can Natural Latex help?

    • Natural Latex is a naturally cushioning but also firm material, it will naturally conform to your body and therefore provide superior back support and outstanding pressure relief; furthermore, our Natural Latex mattresses are tested to 100 parts per billion (.1mg/kg) for chemicals to ensure purity, therefore providing you with a clean, healthy, and restful sleep.

    Which Firmnesses are available?

    • Pure-Rest offers several levels of firmness which are Extra Firm, Firm, & Extra Soft. If you suffer from back problems a medium to firm mattress is recommended. In addition if you and your partner require different firmness we offer a variety of customizable zip mattresses with split cores for maximum comfort.

    What is the exterior of your mattresses made of?

    • Pure-Rest Organics Mattresses feature a Premium Ecowool Wool inner, quilted onto a Certified Organic Cotton Outer. Our Vegan version does not contain wool; instead it features just organic cotton for the batting, however, because of its lack of a natural flame retardants a doctor’s note is required.

    What is the difference between Natural Latex and Memory Foam?

    • Unlike Synthetic Memory Foam which is made of chemicals and petroleum compounds, our Natural latex consists of Natural latex and a little bit of natural zinc oxide. This natural zinc oxide is mined from India and gives the natural latex its natural anti-bacterial and mold properties.
      Also unlike Memory Foam, 100% Natural Latex Mattresses do not need to be kept in a room under 65 degrees, and because Natural Latex is firmer than memory foam you will notice that it does not leave a body impression in addition to providing superior support. Lastly, Natural latex tends to last longer then synthetic memory foam and synthetic foam products, with an average life of about 30 years, you can expect to have your Natural latex mattress for quite a while!

    How can I find the perfect mattress for me without trying one out?

    • This all depends on what type of comfort level and what type of support you are looking for. For example, one looking for a firmer mattress would consider a harmony, while one looking for a softer mattress but still needing quite a bit of support due to a back problem or the likes may consider an Atlantis.
