Hypo-allergenic Posture-Temp® is hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial and dust mite resistant. Hypo-allergenic is a term first coined in 1964 by a small cosmetics company based in Hyattsville, Maryland (based on the Greek prefix hypo meaning “below” or “less”), that designates the characteristic of provoking fewer allergic reactions in allergy sufferers, to have a decreased tendency to cause allergies.
Dust-mite resistant Posture-Temp®’s extremely dense structure makes it extremely difficult for dust mites to nest and feed. Posture-Temp® does not promote dust mite growth because, unlike natural fibres, is not a food source in itself. Many people blame pollen or animals for their asthma and allergy problems, when in reality dust mites are recognized to be the main cause for asthma, chronic Rhinitis (hay fever) and other allergies.

It is breathable for ventilation, comfort and hygiene. Stain resistant, fire resistant,waterproof, anti-allergenic, antimicrobial, hygienically clean. Further, as the cover is sealed bacteria cannot impregnate the mattress.
