Buyer Beware: 100% Latex Is Not What It Seems


 Princess Bride

 Have you ever bought a food item from the grocery store that was labeled “All Natural” only to find out later it wasn’t?

Talk about being disappointed… I recently bought an “All Natural” yogurt only to find out at home while serving it to my daughter that it wasn’t all-natural after all.

The yogurt I bought contained synthetic ingredients such as aspartame and artificial coloring chemicals. Definitely something I didn’t want to buy.

It seems more and more companies today will flat out lie in order to get a sale. They are willing to compromise their integrity just to earn a buck.

And this just does not sit very well with me and I’m sure you feel the same.

The most common place we see these types of shenanigans is in the food and drug industry. However, it also happens quite a bit in the bedding industry particularly in the latex mattress and all natural mattress sectors.

In order to keep you from being misled, here is one simple question you don’t want to forget to ask the sales associate when you are shopping for a latex mattress.

Is It 100% pure All-Natural Latex Or Synthetic Latex?

Yes I know earth shattering question right?

Believe it or not, there are a lot of mattress companies out there marketing their mattresses as being 100% latex when in reality it may be synthetic.

In this industry a mattress company can advertise a man made synthetic latex mattress as being 100% latex because it does have the same feel and make up of being all-natural except it is made with chemicals.

This can be misleading to most people shopping for a latex mattress.

By seeing the 100% on the label you may be thinking it is 100% pure all natural latex when in reality it couldn’t be further from the truth.

Now this is just one of many questions to ask when shopping for a latex mattress. So please, don’t be confused when you here the 100% latex pitch.

If you do fall for it, you can’t say I didn’t warn you.
