Which is better? Natural or synthetic latex?Updated 2 years ago

100% natural latex has superior qualities compared to synthetic latex foam. It doesn't contain any chemicals or generate any harmful emissions.

We use 100% natrual latex in all our mattresses which is better for your health and for the environment. We don't sell any products that are mixed with synthetic latex.

Synthetic latex isn't produced by collecting the sap from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree. It is a cheaper material that's made from petroleum by-products. Synthetic latex is far less durable and can emit dangerous substances. In summary:

  • 100% natural latex mattress:  Doesn't contain any harmful chemicals and can last up to 25 years with no VOCs and no artificial odors.
  • Synthetic latex mattress:  lasts less than 10 years, contains VOCs, has a strong odor and can cause allergies in people with certain intolerances.
