Memory foam and other “sciency” mattresses contain man-made chemicals and have a tendency to “off-gas”, i.e. create unpleasant odors. Memory foam is also reported to sleep “hotter”. A natural latex mattress is one that is made from plant-derived latex rather than chemicals or synthetic petroleum-based latex. The natural latex in our Latex for Less mattresses is made from the sap of the Hevea brasilienesis rubber tree, with no artificial chemicals or fillers.
All natural latex mattresses also contain organic ingredients that are hypoallergenic and antimicrobial, and have a springiness and pressure-relieving properties that neither synthetic latex nor memory foam can match. We truly believe natural latex mattresses are the most comfortable, healthiest mattresses available.
