According to the Federal and Drug Administration website, www.fda.gov, there are no federal standards or definitions that govern the use of the term hypoallergenic. Companies are not required to submit substantiation of their hypoallergenicity claims to FDA. A product being hypoallergenic is not an issue of being ‘allergen-free’. Hypoallergenic products claim to produce FEWER allergic reactions than other products because of the manufacturing processes and steps taken to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction. Therefore, consumers with hypersensitive skin are led to believe that these products will be gentler to their skin than non-hypoallergenic products.
The 100% Pure Talalay Latex within our Pangeabed Mattresses and Pillows each go through a multi-stage fresh water washing —the only one of its kind in the industry.
Within the multi-stage self-cleaning washing process, water jets wash away residual soaps, curing agents and proteins. Between each set of jets, the products are squeezed to less than 4% of their total thickness to remove the maximum amount of residual materials from deep within the product. This vital step improves hypoallergenicity by removing residual soaps, curing agents and proteins – therefore supporting the “hypoallergenic” claim and resulting in zero complaints of allergies over the past 30 years for Talalay Latex.
Letting you know that when we designed your Pangeabed Mattress and Pillow, we truly cared about every component, making sure it met our very high standards.
