What is a Natural Latex Mattress?
What we call natural latex is a derivative of the sap harvested and collected from rubber trees. The sap is mixed with other organic compounds to form a gel-like material which is then processed using several varying methods to produce the latex used to make mattresses. If natural latex is made properly, it is renewable, sustainable, and free of synthetic materials. It takes less energy to produce natural latex, provides longer life to mattresses (up to 25 years), and safeguards against health issues found when using synthetic mattresses. A natural latex mattress tends to be firmer and more resilient. Anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties repel dust mites and germs. Additionally, natural latex allows for better airflow and a cooler sleeping surface. Most major mattress manufacturers offer latex mattresses as part of their catalogue. Unfortunately, most of those mattresses have not been certified as natural.
Targeted Support and Targeted Pressure Relief
Consider several important things before buying a natural latex mattress. First the targeted support and targeted pressure relief of the mattress. Targeted support represents the areas where you get the most support from the mattress. Every mattress differs in where the targeted support is applied. Although the mattress is expensive, it still might not have the most targeted support zones. If you look closely at some of the major mattress brands like Stearns and Foster, BeautyRest, and Tempurpedic, you will learn that their products don’t have any targeted support zones. Plus, their mattresses range in price between $1500-$7000. On the other hand, Brentwood Home offers natural latex mattresses with five targeted support zones and a price between $795-$1795. When you go shopping for a latex mattress you should also keep in mind targeted pressure relief. These zones are responsible for stress relief in the areas that are most prone to building up the stress during the night. Here again, the higher prices are not indicative of more pressure relief zones. The major mattress brands such as Stearns and Foster, BeautyRest, or Tempurpedic don’t make their latex mattresses with specifically targeted pressure relief. Brentwood Home latex mattresses offer up to three zones. A restorative night’s sleep is more likely when your mattress has targeted support and targeted pressure relief zones. At the same time, your body will receive the support and relief. This will be the most beneficial for people with injuries, pre-existing conditions, and for senior citizens.
Non-Toxic Materials and Chemical Free Fire Retardants
It is a sad fact that many mattresses on the market today can have ill effects on the health and well-being of users. Toxic materials and chemicals used in manufacturing and post-production result in many models of mattress being sold that can potentially cause health problems for a wide number of ordinary, as well as particularly sensitive, users. Synthetic materials are also problematic when it comes to bacteria; they tend to breed more and do not effectively prevent against growth. Two ways to determine if a mattress is nontoxic are to check whether it has been certified as such and whether it has been treated with chemical free fire retardants. A mattress is required to made of only natural materials in order to obtain certification as nontoxic. Additionally, the law requires all mattresses to be treated with fire retardant materials during production. Most fire retardant materials are made of harmful chemicals, but there are natural alternative available for use. It appears neither BeautyRest Black, Saatva, Stearns and Foster, nor Tempurpedic hold nontoxic certifications for their latex mattresses. This means that their products contain at least some amount of synthetic, possibly toxic, materials. Further, the products offered by these brands use chemicals to fulfill fire retardant requirements. Only Brentwood Home, among these particular competitors, can boast a nontoxic certification and use of chemical free fire retardants. If you are evaluating the health and well-being of your family, consider taking a closer look at the mattresses you are using. Don’t forget that you are spending a good one-third of your life in close proximity to one.
