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 process is known as Talalay. Natural latex comes from the sap of rubber trees versus the man-made rubber polymer which is a blend of natural rubber tree sap. Latex mattresses have been on the market since the 1950’s and are the healthiest and the most eco-friendly option. The result of using more natural latex in a mattress is a firmer feel.
Targeted Support and Targeted Pressure Relief
When you compare mattresses made with latex, not all are created equal. For instance, a mattress made by pouring latex foam into flat molds offers little in the way of specified support and pressure relief. Mattresses sold by major manufacturers, BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and Stearns and Foster (S&F), are made in such a 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. Furthermore, Brentwood Home mattress foam is sculpted into three targeted pressure relief zones. BeautyRest, Tempurpedic, and S&F do not provide that additional attention to your pressure points in their mattresses. Instead, they are designed to adapt and conform to the shape of your body over use.
Non-Toxic Materials and Chemical Free Fire Retardants
It is a sad fact that many mattresses on the market today can have ill effects on the health and well-being of 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. A nontoxic certification and a verification of use of chemical free fire retardants are two ways to check for a nontoxic mattress. A mattress is required to made of only natural materials in order to obtain certification as nontoxic. Additionally, the law requires all mattresses to be treated with fire retardant materials during production. The fire retardant materials used are typically made of harmful chemicals, but there are natural alternatives. It appears neither BeautyRest Black, Saatva, Stearns and Foster, nor Tempurpedic hold nontoxic certifications for their latex mattresses. This means that their products contain at least some amount of synthetic, possibly toxic, materials. Also, chemicals are used by all of these brands to fulfill fire retardant requirements. Brentwood Home stands out among these competitors by holding nontoxic certification and using 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. Don’t forget that you are spending a good one-third of your life in close proximity to one.
