, Avocado Mattress was rated 5.0 out of 5 stars for eco-friendly materials.
Avocado has differentiated itself by its dedication to building eco-friendly mattresses. On their website, they say, "Every Avocado mattress, topper and pillow is GREENGUARD Gold Certified by UL Environment. It means they’re scientifically tested to meet some of the world’s most rigorous emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde and phthalates."
They continue to describe the responsible sourcing, saying, "An Avocado Green Mattress is made with only finest natural and organic materials, including 100% natural Dunlop latex from tree-tapped and sustainable sources. Our organic mattresses are free of polyurethane foams and off-gassing memory foams. Also, there are no chemical flame retardants to endanger your health."
Slumber Search attests to their eco-friendliness, saying, "They are also GreenGuard Gold certified, which is one of the most rigorous volatile emissions standards."

, Avocado Mattress was rated 4.5 out of 5 stars for hypoallergenic mattress features.
When it comes to allergies, Avocado's website says this of the wool they use in their mattresses, "And it’s also non-allergenic (ideal for those who suffer allergies to feather and down or synthetic bedding products)" However, they do acknowledge that they use all natural latex, stating, "Many natural mattress companies falsely claim that their latex is hypoallergenic, which it logically can not be, if 1% of the US population has a latex allergy. We do not make this claim, and recognize that a mattress made with natural latex may not be appropriate for those with an existing latex allergy."
Slumber Search included Avocado in their list of "Top 5 Mattresses for Allergies" and gave it a score of 9.8/10. They said, "For those that are sensitive to off-gassing or suffer from airborne allergies, having an all-natural mattress is a must. Avocado has that covered by using wool, organic cotton, and all-natural latex."

, Avocado Mattress was rated 3.5 out of 5 stars for motion isolation features.
When it comes to motion isolation, The Sleep Judge gave a positive review, saying, "Using two 20 pound medicine balls, I tested this product to see just how well it performs. I placed one ball on one third of the mattress and dropped the other on the opposite third. To my surprise, there was minimal movement of the resting ball when the other all made contact with the mattress surface. Furthermore, the ball I dropped only bounced a few times before coming to rest."
Tuck.com compiled and analyzed 678 reviews from 16 different sources, and gave Avocado's Motion Isolation factor a rating of Good (with Very Good and Excellent being higher) with the justification, "Being a very firm hybrid (almost an innerspring), the Avocado will transfer motion more than all foam and other mattress builds."

, Avocado Mattress was rated 4.0 out of 5 stars for off-gassing reduction.
Tuck.com's reviews gave Avocado a rating of Very Good (the second highest rating) for Off-gassing and say, "Natural latex emits minimal off-gassing. Some initial odors may be present, but they tend to dissipate within a few days."
The Avocado Mattress website gives a more detailed explanation about how they avoid strong smells"
"Any mattresses made with petroleum-based foams, memory foams, chemical adhesives and chemical flame retardants will "off-gas" — which means that they release Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) as they age.
However, we do not use polyurethane foams, memory foams, chemical flame retardants or chemical adhesives between the comfort layers of our mattresses. Instead, we use 100% natural eco-INSTITUT® certified Dunlop latex, natural Joma® New Zealand Wool, and GOTS certified organic cotton. These materials are GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions and quality assurance by UL Environment.
In particularly humid climates, you may notice a very slight natural odor when your mattress arrives, which will dissipate quickly. This is because your mattress has been sealed after it was made in order to facilitate shipping. This is natural and not a chemical odor."

Back Pain Support
Out of 1 review
, Avocado Mattress was rated 5.0 out of 5 stars for back pain support.
Tuck.com reviewed Avocado Mattress mattresses and recommended them as "Good for Back Pain"
Real Mattress Reviews included Avocado Mattress in their article "Best Mattresses For Back Pain" and said:
The Avocado uses latex foam. This can be a great choice for those seeking firmer support with added bounce and those who do not want the “stuck” feeling of memory foam.
FIRMNESS LEVEL & LATEX SUPPORT
- The Avocado pairs latex with hybrid coils. This combination will provide excellent bounce, and more of a sleeping on the mattress vs in the mattress. The latex is very durable and will provide firmer support for those seeking less sinkage and better support for low back pain.
