What Is An Allergy?

Allergies are your body’s immune system reacting defensively to substances in the environment. Dust mite and mould allergies cause similar symptoms to hay fever or a long running cold, including an itchy or congested nose, watering eyes, sneezing, coughing or other breathing problems.

Chemical allergy symptoms range from difficulty sleeping to headaches in the morning. For many symptoms your doctor can refer you for testing through the NZ public health system. This is usually inexpensive and as simple as a skin prick test.

Allergy Treatment

The most effective way to eliminate allergy symptoms is to reduce exposure. If symptoms occur during the night or morning then your bed is the most likely source of the problem.

How do Latex Mattresses Reduce Sleep Allergies?

Latex is a completely natural material made from the sap of the rubber tree, Hevea Brasiliensis. The latex we use is formed of countless tiny bubbles. These are air and moisture permeable, but too small to harbour significant amounts of dust. Latex ‘breathes’ and provides a dry, clean sleep environment that is ideal for humans, and resistant to dust mites.

Latex is naturally anti-fungal, a quality it retains from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree. This means latex mattresses are resistant to mold and other fungus. This quality also contributes to the excellent longevity of latex mattresses.

We surround the latex core of the mattress with pure wool which ensures air circulation and actively disperses moisture, inhibiting mould and reducing humidity; further discouraging dust mites.

The latex we use at INNATURE does not contain toxic chemicals or synthetic additives. Therefore our latex mattresses are hypoallergenic; suitable for many people with sensitivity to chemicals.

What are Dust Mites?

Dust mites are tiny bugs in the Arachnid family and are found across the world.

Dust mites eat decomposing protein dust, like decaying shed skin cells. Decay is caused by fungus and mould. Latex deters dust mites as it is dust resistant, does not retain moisture and is anti-fungal.

Solutions to Sleep Allergies

While dust mites, mould spores and chemicals are virtually impossible to completely eradicate from the home, a dust free and dry environment with an appropriate bed does wonders to reducing exposure.

If you notice allergy symptoms during or after sleeping, a latex mattress and latex pillow could be the perfect solution.

We’ve designed INNATURE Organic Mattresses to deter dust mites and promote your health, as well as supporting your body in optimum comfort.

Organic INNATURE Latex mattresses have helped many people who used to suffer from sleep allergies.

Your health is important for quality of life.
