Do your homework!
If you are confused about all of the types of latex mattresses on the market today you aren't alone.
If you are wanting to avoid toxic chemicals consider a hybrid mattress with a 100 per cent natural latex layer of rubber two-three inches thick. This way you don't have to worry about the core of the hybrid mattress being made from a polyurethane foam. One of your first questions for the sales specialist should be - what is the core of this mattress made from? Does it contain polyurethane foam? If you are primarily concerned about toxic offgassing and fire retardants, then go with the metal innerspring with a layer of 100% natural latex. Another thing to consider is the fabric cover, referred to in the mattress industry as ticking. For the most organic cover you will want a 100% organic cotton ticking quilted to natural wool.
