What is a Natural Latex Mattress?
Your true natural latex mattress should not contain any synthetic latex or fillers. 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 process that is used more often for treating natural and synthetic latex. The other process is known as Talalay. Man-made rubber polymer is comprised of a mix of materials while natural latex comes from only the sap of rubber trees. Latex mattresses have been on the market since the 1950’s and are the healthiest and the most eco-friendly option. The more natural latex that a mattress is made of, the firmer it is.
Targeted Support and Targeted Pressure Relief
Back pain, aches, and stress are a common complaint for many. For these issues, getting relief for pain needs to be a priority when selecting a mattress. The composition of latex mattresses tends to make them firmer and more supportive. Targeted support and targeted pressure relief are also potential benefits. These targeted zones ease discomfort by applying more pressure to specific areas of the body. A review of some of the major sellers of latex mattresses reveals that Brentwood Home is the only one currently offering these additional features. Neither BeautyRest Black, Saatva, Stearns and Foster, nor Tempurpedic list targeted zones as a feature of their latex mattresses. The latex mattresses from Brentwood Home, on the other hand, have multiple zones for both targeted support and targeted pressure relief. A person suffering from pain issues could well benefit from a mattress offering targeted relief.
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 important to note that declaring a product “non-toxic" is not enough. There are certification processes that a company must adhere to in order to declare their products “non-toxic." 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 that chemicals make their way into a mattress is through the flame retardants added after production. The law requires that all mattresses be treated with a flame retardant. There are a variety of methods, though, allowed for the treatment. Mattresses with chemical free fire retardants are only found at Brentwood Home, out of the companies we reviewed.
