The science of sleep: hypoallergenic mattresses


Don’t let your mattress pose a threat to your health. If you suffer from an allergy, ensure a safe night’s sleep with our hypoallergenic mattress guide.

Why buy a hypoallergenic or anti-allergy mattress?

A hypoallergenic or anti-allergy mattress is a specially made mattress that offers protection from the organisms that would otherwise provoke an allergic reaction from somebody whilst sleeping. This is because, unlike a regular mattress, a hypoallergenic mattress boasts non-toxic, allergy-resistant properties that will ensure those suffering from allergies can rest easy while they sleep.

Do anti-allergy mattresses protect from dust mites?

An anti-allergy mattress will offer far more protection from dust mites than a traditional mattress. Anti-allergy mattresses are tightly sealed to ensure there is not a build-up of mould and mildew within the mattress. As a result, dust mites and other microscopic animals are far less likely to be drawn to it.

If you are somebody suffering from a dust mite allergy, we would also recommend purchasing a hypoallergenic dust mite mattress cover, pillow covers and bedding for added dust mite protection.

What kind of hypoallergenic mattresses are there?

There are many hypoallergenic mattresses available to choose between. These range from organic pocket to memory foam and latex mattresses. Each of these chemical free mattresses have different individual qualities, so it’s important to take care in picking the right anti-allergy mattress for you.
