My father is coming to visit and is very allergic to latex. I have a memory foam topper on our guest bed where he will be sleeping and wanted to make sure the materials in memory foam do not contain any latex. Thanks in advance. Missy
Memory foam contains no latex.
But, I don't think you get the big picture.
Latex foam is not like latex gloves or bandages. When processing latex foam, the allergen (the protein) is removed. Latex foam is hypoallergenic.
Also, a latex allergy is topical, meaning you have to be touching it to react to it. Latex Mattresses and Toppers come with covers, which you cover again with a mattress protector and a sheet.
Even if the allergen was there, you would not be touching it.
Now, compare latex to memory foam. Our Latex Topper are 100% all-natural with zero chemicals used. Memory foam consists of 61 chemicals...some toxic and some carcinogenic...formaldehyde and benzene...just to mention only two.
Memory foam off-gasses its toxic chemicals and they attack your respiratory system.
And, to add insult to injury, memory foam does work well at all. It flattens out as it warms from your body heat. You end up sinking through it, as it it wasn't there.
The latex topper we use at home is 5 years old and still like new. It holds you up...relaxing your muscles and relieving your pressure points.
The difference is like night and day. Latex works while memory foam doesn't. Latex is safe while memory foam is dangerous.
