What is a Natural Latex Mattress?
Natural latex mattresses have grown in popularity as people become more conscious about consumption and quality control in the products they purchase. Like many products on the market, “natural" latex mattresses vary greatly, depending on the materials, chemicals, and manufacturing processes that are used to create a mattress. Blended products are difficult to prove as natural, as certification requires the sole source of mattress materials to be organic in nature. When mattresses are made with latex, more often than not synthetic materials made from petrochemicals are used in the processing. Look for a mattress that says “natural" or “organic" latex has been used to avoid unnecessary chemicals in your mattress. Another benefit of natural materials is their ability to combat bed bugs and dust mites, as well as offering comfort and reduction of the body’s pressure points.
Targeted Support and Targeted Pressure Relief
Not all latex mattresses on the market today are created equal. Latex foam that is poured into flat molds offers little in the way of support or targeted pressure relief. Mattresses sold by major manufacturers, BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and Stearns and Foster (S&F), are made in such a manner. Their mattresses are flat and firm and do not offer any targeted zones for support. Unlike competitors’ products, Brentwood Home mattresses are manufactured using a layer of natural latex foam that has been designed to focus support across five zones of your body. Additionally, Brentwood Home mattress foam is sculpted into three zones that target major pressure points. BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and S&F mattresses do not appear to offer the same targeted pressure point relief. Instead, they are designed to conform to your body shape after extended use.
Non-Toxic Materials and Chemical Free Fire Retardants
If you are looking to purchase a mattress made only of natural materials, you may be faced with a challenge. Many of the materials that make up a mattress are not easily discernible. In order to be confident that you have purchased a 100% natural mattress, meaning one free of toxins, chemicals, and pesticides, you must find out if it has been certified as non-toxic. You can also investigate whether a mattress has been treated with chemical fire retardants during processing. A scan of the latex mattresses made by BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and S&F reveals that none are certified as non-toxic. Meaning, a mattress manufactured and sold by one of these companies will be comprised of some synthetic materials. Brentwood Home latex mattresses are the only products, of those we reviewed, meeting the standard for non-toxic certification. Brentwood Home details on their website that their mattresses are made from 100% natural latex harvested in Vietnam, certified organic cotton, organic wool from New Zealand, and organic coconut husk materials. When it comes to fire retardant standards, Brentwood Home avoids the use of petroleum-based materials, formaldehyde, or toxic adhesives on their mattresses. They choose, instead, to use natural materials like wool to meet safety standards. Comparatively, BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and S&F do use chemicals to treat their mattresses. It should be noted that most mattress manufacturers choose to use chemicals in this manner as it is fast, efficient, and cost-effective for them. Natural alternatives can be more expensive, and take more time and effort.
