What is a Natural Latex Mattress?
A true natural latex mattress doesn’t contain any synthetic latex or fillers blended in. When we speak about natural latex we are actually speaking of a rubber. Natural latex mattresses are mainly made of latex that goes through one of two processes and is certified organic due to certain standards. Dunlop is the process that is used more often for treating natural and synthetic latex. The other is called Talalay. Man-made rubber polymer is comprised of a mix of materials while natural latex comes from only the sap of rubber trees. Since their introduction in the 1950’s latex mattresses have developed a reputation as the healthiest and most eco-friendly options. The more natural latex a mattress contains, the firmer it is.
Targeted Support and Targeted Pressure Relief
When you compare mattresses made with latex, not all are created equal. Those latex mattress which have been shaped into flat molds, for instance, offer little in the way of targeted support or pressure relief. The major companies, BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and Stearns and Foster (S&F), only offer latex mattresses made in this manner. Their mattresses are flat and firm and do not offer any targeted zones for support. Brentwood Home mattresses, comparatively, offer five targeted zones of support via a layer of natural latex foam. 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 over the course of use.
Non-Toxic Materials and Chemical Free Fire Retardants
If you or a family member has sensitivities or if you are just trying to use more eco-friendly products in your home, choosing a quality mattress may pose a bit of a challenge. Many of the materials that make up a mattress are not easily discernible. Only those mattresses certified non-toxic can claim to be made of 100% natural materials free of toxins, chemicals, and pesticides. You can also investigate whether a mattress has been treated with chemical fire retardants during processing. A review of mattresses currently sold by BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and S&F reveals that none of them hold a non-toxic certification. This means that their mattresses will be comprised of some amount of synthetic material. The latex mattresses sold by Brentwood Home are the only ones, of the products we reviewed, that hold non-toxic certification. According to the Brentwood Home website, 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. Instead, they use approved natural materials such as wool to meet safety standards. BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and S&F, comparatively, do use chemicals to treat their mattresses. It is worth noting that many major mattress manufacturers utilize chemicals in this manner because it is fast, efficient, and cost-effective. The natural alternatives can be much more expensive and take more time and effort to implement.
