What is a Natural Latex Mattress?
Natural latex is made from the sap of rubber trees. The sap is combined with various other organic compounds in order to make a gel-like material, which can then be formed into usable latex mattresses. If natural latex is made properly, it is renewable, sustainable, and free of synthetic materials. Not only does it take less energy to produce a natural latex mattress, they tend to last longer than other types of mattresses and safeguard against health issues associated with synthetic materials. The inherent qualities of natural latex mean that mattresses tend to be firmer and more resilient. Further, natural latex has anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties allowing them to repel dust mites and germs. Additionally, natural latex mattresses tend to have cooler surfaces due to better airflow. Latex mattresses are sold by most major manufacturers. Unfortunately, most of the latex used is synthetic, and not natural.
Targeted Support and Targeted Pressure Relief
Before you decide to buy a natural latex mattress keep in mind several important things. Number one - the targeted support and targeted pressure relief of the mattress. Targeted support refers to the areas from where you get the most support from the mattress. Every mattress differs in where the targeted support is applied. Whether the mattress is expensive or not it doesn’t have anything to do with the number of 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. 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 are zones in the mattress that target and relieve stress on the certain areas of the body where the most pressure can build up during a night’s sleep. Again, the higher price of a mattress does not reflect the presence of more pressure relief zones. None of the major mattress brands on the market that we reviewed, including Stearns and Foster, BeautyRest, or Tempurpedic have latex mattresses with targeted pressure relief zones. Natural latex mattresses from Brentwood Home offer up to three pressure relief zones. To get the best night’s sleep, your mattress should have both targeted support and targeted pressure relief zones. This guarantees that you will have the support you need while relieving any pressure build up in your body. With these qualities you will get the relief and the support your body needs. 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
If you are looking to purchase a mattress made only of natural materials, you may be faced with a challenge. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to discern exactly what a mattress is made of. If you are looking for a 100% natural mattress, free of toxins, chemicals, and pesticides, it is important to find out if the mattress has been certified as non-toxic. Also, research whether a mattress has been treated with chemicals to meet fire retardant legal requirements. 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. Of the products we reviewed, Brentwood Home latex mattresses are the only ones holding a 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. As for meeting fire retardant standards, Brentwood Home does not use petroleum-based materials, formaldehyde, or toxic adhesives. 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 should be noted that many major brands use chemicals in this manner as it is fast, efficient, and cost-effective. Natural alternatives can be more expensive, and take more time and effort.
