Ever since I was a kid, I have suffered from a mattress allergy. I often wake up in the middle of the night coughing and suffer severe skin irritations and watery eyes. Can Vytex recommend a product that may help me alleviate this problem?
Thank you for contacting us about your problem. We first recommend consulting with your physician and consider being tested for latex allergies. Many times people suffer from very similar allergies to the one you are experiencing and don’t realize that their sensitivity to latex is the source of their problems.
Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) is used in ultra-low protein-based latex products that offer dramatic health, safety and environmental benefits to manufacturers and end users. Vytex NRL can be easily incorporated into existing manufacturing processes, such as those used to make mattresses, and could ultimately help those who suffer from allergic reactions to latex. Vytex NRL is an eco-friendly, advanced latex material with virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins that can lead to latex allergies.
For more information on allergies, visit the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology website. For further information on Vytex NRL and the role the company is playing to help those that have a mattress allergy, or to find products made with Vytex NRL. We also recommend looking for the “Vytex® NRL” logo for a better latex with significantly reduced antigenic protein levels.
