Natural Latex Mattress San Francisco

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. 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 process is known as Talalay. The difference between natural latex and man-made rubber polymer is that the former comes from rubber tree sap and the latter from a blend of substances. Latex mattresses have been on the market since the 1950’s and are the healthiest and the most eco-friendly option. The mattresses that are made of natural latex are firmer than the others.

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. The latex products being sold by the major brands, BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and Stearns and Foster (S&F), are made in this manner. Their products are firm and flat with no specific zones to address pain or discomfort. Comparatively, the mattresses from Brentwood Home are designed with a layer of natural latex foam which provides targeted support to five specific areas of the body. Additionally, Brentwood Home mattress foam is sculpted into three zones that target major pressure points. The mattresses currently offered by BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and S&F do not seem to offer the same targeted attention to pressure point support. Instead, they are designed to conform to your body shape after extended use.

Non-Toxic Materials and Chemical Free Fire Retardants

Your health and well-being are extremely important, and many mattresses do not meet basic requirements for the biological health of their users. There are actually harmful materials used in many popular mattress models on the market today. Synthetic materials can also potentially breed bacteria and fail to prevent germ growth. You can check for the nontoxic nature of a mattress by looking for whether it has been certified as such and whether it uses chemical free fire retardants. Only mattresses made from natural materials can obtain a certification as nontoxic. Additionally, all mattresses are legally required to be treated with fire retardant materials after manufacturing. While most fire retardant materials are made of harmful chemicals, there are approved natural alternatives. None of the latex mattresses offered from BeautyRest Black, Saatva, Stearns and Foster, or Tempurpedic seem to hold nontoxic certification. Their products, therefore, are made of some amount of potentially toxic synthetic materials. Further, the products offered by these brands use chemicals to fulfill fire retardant requirements. Only Brentwood Home, among these particular competitors, can boast a nontoxic certification and use of chemical free fire retardants. If you are evaluating the health and well-being of your family, consider taking a closer look at the mattresses you are using. After all, you spend approximately one-third of your life in close contact with one.
