Toxins In Your Bed
Our Talalay latex is the healthiest bedding material. We wish that all mattress materials where safe, but unfortunately the technology behind foams like Memory Foam or Polyurethane Foam simply aren't. Petroleum-based foams give off volatile organic compounds as they age. Today’s foams may contain any or all of the following, each are known carcinogens.
Talalay Latex contains none of these.
Non-Toxic Fire Retardant
As of 2007 all mattresses are required to contain enough Fire Retardant to withstand a two-foot wide blowtorch open flame for 70 seconds. Nearly 90% of all mattresses on the market today use a highly toxic fire retardant because it is cheaper to manufacture. Poisons such as Boric Acid and Antimony are used to treat fabrics and covers to pass fire retardant laws in the mattress industry.
Hazardous Chemicals found in toxic Fire Retardants:
These highly toxic chemicals can seep though pillow and mattress covers and are absorbed through your skin while sleeping. Our mattresses do not contain these dangerous chemicals.
