What is a Natural Latex Mattress?
Natural latex is made from the sap of rubber trees. Latex used in mattresses is created by combining and processing the sap with other organic compounds. If natural latex is made properly, it is renewable, sustainable, and free of synthetic materials. Mattresses made of natural latex take less energy to produce, last longer, and do not aggravate or instigate health issues associated with synthetic mattresses. The inherent qualities of natural latex mean that mattresses tend to be firmer and more resilient. Yet another attractive property of natural latex is that it naturally repels dust mites and germs. Additionally, increased airflow through natural latex means a cooler mattress. Latex mattresses are sold by most major manufacturers. Unfortunately, most of those mattresses have not been certified as natural.
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 properties of latex tend to make these mattresses firmer and more supportive than those made of other materials. Targeted support and targeted pressure relief are also potential benefits. These are zones designed to address specific pressure points on the body to ease discomfort. A quick review of some current brands of latex mattress reveals that only Brentwood Home natural latex mattresses offer these additional features. BeautyRest Black, Saatva, Stearns and Foster, and Tempurpedic do not advertise any targeted aspects to their latex mattresses. Brentwood Home mattresses are created with five zones for targeted support and three zones for 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
Whether you have a sensitivity to chemicals and impurities or just want to bring natural materials and products into your home, selecting a quality mattress can present some challenges. The materials used to make a mattress may be difficult to discern. 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. Another important factor is whether the mattress was treated with chemicals in order to meet legal fire retardant requirements. A scan of the latex mattresses made by BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and S&F reveals that none are certified as non-toxic. This means that their mattresses will be made with some synthetic materials. Brentwood Home latex mattresses are the only products, of those we reviewed, meeting the standard for non-toxic certification. According to their website, Brentwood Home makes their mattresses 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 choose to use natural materials such as 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. The natural alternatives tend to take more time, effort, and money.
