What is latex?Updated 2 years ago

Natural latex, also known as rubber, is a 100% natural material that's extracted from the rubber tree, Hevea Brasiliensis.

Latex is produced by the tree as a protective mechanism when its bark is torn or cut. Latex protects the tree from bacteria.

Latex extraction is a harmless process for the tree and doesn't require the trees to be felled.
