As early as 500 BC, Mayans and Aztecs used latex for waterproofing purposes and also
heated it to make toy balls. So why is this material such a great component in a mattress?
Derived from the rubber tree, latex is the most naturally durable cushioning material available.
It is made from a milky substance that drips from the rubber tree when the bark is slashed.
The process does no harm to the tree and latex is an entirely sustainable product. During the
production process which converts the latex from a liquid, the resin is whipped and baked.
The finished product is naturally biodegradable.
The main ingredient in the manufacture of a natural latex pad is simply natural rubber, at 90
to 95%. Some other ingredients are necessary for the vulcanisation, foaming and curing
process, but these are largely ‘cooked out’ leaving a final product which is 99% natural
rubber. To ensure that the product is as clean as possible it is washed a minimum of three
times before the manufacturing process is complete.
Natural latex may cost more, but is non-toxic.
When buying a latex mattress it is wise to follow the principle of ‘ buyer beware ’as there are
so called ‘organic’ latex mattresses being sold which are actually made from styrene
butadiene which is an entirely man made material. The foam in these mattresses is grey as
opposed to the cream of natural latex.
If you are in any doubt, ask for a sample!
Natural latex is anti-microbial, dust-mite resistant, and hypo-allergenic. It dynamically
conforms to you, providing excellent support. By gently conforming to your every contour,
latex provides superior back support and outstanding pressure relief. Relieving pressure
reduces the tossing and turning that interrupts sleep.
Abaca latex mattresses are certified as organic by the Soil Association.
