Natural Latex is the new evolution in eco-friendly and green living furniture and bedding. Unlike polyurethane foams that are a mixture of chemicals, Natural Latex is derived from a 100% natural source called the heven brasiliensis, or Pará rubber tree. Natural latex is made from a milky resin that drips from the rubber tree when the bark is lacerated. The extraction process, also known as rubber tapping, does not injure the tree, which can continue producing latex resin for upwards of 26 to 30 years.
From a health perspective the unique open-cell structure of natural latex allows air to pass through easily and dissipates heat and humidity, keeping moisture buildup away from your skin.
This superior air circulation ensures that natural latex is naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic resisting dust mites and mold.Firm and supportive natural latex is significantly more resilient and supportive than standard foam. Natural latex is a natural renewable material and is biodegradable making it a perfect choice for both the health conscious and environmentally friendly alike.
