Here’s just a few of the many topics we chatted with Barry about:
Latex, foam, memory foam, feathers, down & so much more. The market is flooded with so many choices and so many chemicals!
- Eco or green mattresses are very toxic. Plant derived, soybean and bamboo are laden with chemicals.Why organic mattresses and bedding is actually more comfortable.
- What makes for a safe crib/mattress.
- Why a crib mattress needs to be waterproof and the various ways to achieve it.
- Latex (and even more so with “natural” latex is a known and documented allergen)
- Certifications and their validity. Buyer beware!
- Synthetic latex is made with petroleum-based oils and chemical additives. Chemicals typically added include formaldehyde and flame retardants, which have been proven dangerous to health.
- Organic Latex: Organic latex is made from the sap of the rubber tree which is processed. A mattress made from organic latex does not contain any chemicals, synthetics, pesticides, herbicides, or other man-made products.
