LATEX’S NATURAL DEFENSES: IN THE WILD AND IN YOUR HOME

Organic mattresses and ultra-comfortable bedding to go with them can be made in a wide variety of materials and constructions. Some, like cotton and hemp, are pretty obvious. Did you know that organic mattresses could be made from pure organic latex that brings its naturally resistant properties into your home?

Longer-Lasting Latex

To make an organic latex mattress, air is whipped into the sap from rubber trees to create foam, the density of which can be adjusted to make firmer or softer sleeping surfaces. This extremely resilient material doesn’t get broken down like the fibers of other common mattress-making materials. That means your bed won’t form a valley in the middle as time passes. Organic latex is super resilient and hyper-elastic.

Natural, Non-Toxic Preservation

The problem with conventional mattresses hasn’t necessarily been with the materials that form most of their construction. A lot of those can be sourced organically. The issue has largely been with the chemicals that those materials are treated with. To make them fire-resistant, manufacturers have often coated their mattresses with questionable or downright nasty chemicals. Natural latex from trees isn’t just naturally fire-retardant; it’s also hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and moisture resistant. Dust mites hate it, and it won’t become a haven for bacteria or other natural invaders that you don’t want in your bed.

Resilient & Renewable

Latex is an awesomely renewable resource. Not only does it come directly from trees, more of which can be planted, but it can also be repeatedly gathered from the same trees – over and over again for years. Some mattresses made of organic materials still use chemicals for protection, so if you’re thinking about buying an organic mattress, make sure to choose one that uses an organic wool liner or other non-toxic fire retardant to ensure it’s totally organic.
