Latex is a great material for mattresses. The sap is extracted with care and expertise from the Rubber Tree (Hevea Brasiliensis). The latex base is essentially filled with air, put in a case and expanded through a vacuum before being flash frozen, which enables the open cells to retain their shape. Then, the mattress is cooked or “vulcanised” at 115°C. Finally, the mattresses are washed, dried and then tested for quality control.
A latex mattress is definitely the healthiest choice due to its natural properties, as opposed to many other non-latex beddings contain petroleum based foams, which release toxic chemicals as they age. Non-latex mattresses also add an additional chemical to increase fire resistance whereas latex is naturally fire resistant. These chemicals are associated with cancer, immunotoxicity, and reproductive toxicity.
