What is a Natural Latex Mattress?
When you start looking for a true natural latex mattress make sure it doesn’t contain any synthetic latex or fillers blended in. Natural latex is simply natural rubber. Most natural latex mattresses contain latex that goes through one of two processes and is then certified organic by certain standards. Dunlop is the more common of the two processes used for treating natural and synthetic latex. The other is called Talalay. Natural latex comes from the sap of rubber trees versus the man-made rubber polymer which is a blend of natural rubber tree sap. Since their introduction in the 1950’s latex mattresses have developed a reputation as the healthiest and most eco-friendly options. The result of using more natural latex in a mattress is a firmer feel.
Targeted Support and Targeted Pressure Relief
When shopping for a natural latex mattress, there are several things you should consider. Number one - the targeted support and targeted pressure relief of the mattress. Targeted support represents the areas where you get the most support from the mattress. Mattresses vary on the number of targeted support zones and where that targeted support is applied. Believe it or not the more expensive the mattress does not mean it has the most targeted support zones. Looking closely at some of the major mattress brands on the market, such as Stearns and Foster, BeautyRest, and Tempurpedic, you will find that their products do not offer any targeted support zones. Additionally, the price point of their mattresses is between $1500-$7000. Brentwood Home, on the other hand, offers natural latex mattresses with five targeted support zones, and they offer mattresses between $795-$1795. One more thing you should keep in mind when purchasing a latex mattress is 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. Natural latex mattresses from Brentwood Home offer up to three pressure relief 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 is especially true for people with injuries, pre-existing conditions, and for senior citizens.
Non-Toxic Materials and Chemical Free Fire Retardants
Oftentimes products, such as mattresses, retain the chemicals and toxic materials used in latex manufacturing. There are two ways in which chemicals make their way into mattresses, from the source materials or during the actual construction process. It is not enough just to declare a product “non-toxic". For a mattress to be considered “non-toxic" requires a certification process. Mattresses made with non-toxic materials are currently not offered by brands such as BeautyRest Black, S&F, Saatva, and TempurPedic. Based on those mattresses we reviewed, only those made by Brentwood Home have been certified non-toxic. Another way for chemicals to sneak into your mattress is during production when flame retardants are added. The law requires that all mattresses be treated with a flame retardant. Treatment can occur in a variety of ways. Of the brands we reviewed, Brentwood Home is currently the only company treating its mattresses with chemical free fire retardants.
