What is a Latex Mattress?

Latex Mattress

One of the few sustainable resources promoting the preservation of rain forests, latex rubber has remarkable advantages when used in bedding. A Latex Mattress conforms to the contours of the body creating a cushion in which no pressure points are caused during rest. This unique and natural material is remarkable not only for its immediate health and comfort benefits, but also for its ability to withstand the test of time. Take for example the Nu-Lex latex mattress series, mattresses that are built with 100% Natural Latex, which offer health benefits that include being anti-microbial, naturally hypoallergenic, naturally dust-mite resistant and mold and mildew resistant. Latex mattress variations like the Carmel or a Natural Lux offer the same benefits, and all types of latex mattress can be totally customizable, even for his and her sides.

Latex Pillow

There was time when the everyday allergies many individuals suffered from, particularly while they slept, were classified as something one simply learns to live with. That is no longer the case. The amazing natural and sustainable latex rubber from southern hemisphere rain forests has proven to be a remarkable aid in achieving a restful sleep, particularly in regards to its hypoallergenic properties. When used in a Latex Pillow, for example, not only does it offer the unparalleled support and durability the foam is renowned for, but it also reduces the presence of allergens. Additional health benefits of a Latex Pillow include being anti-microbial, naturally dust-mite resistant, mold and mildew resistant and offering natural neck support.

   
What is Latex Foam?

Latex Foam

Latex is the milky sap of the rubber tree, Hevea brasiliensis. It is a complex intracellular product of a system of cells that synthesize a polymer (cis-1,4-polyisoprene), which is the main component of natural latex rubber. This natural latex rubber is produced in Africa and South Asia, South America, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, where trees are tapped for latex by cutting a spiral groove in the bark and placing a spout and collection cup at the base. This natural latex rubber is then molded into remarkable bedding products like a latex mattress, or a latex pillow. The mattress is usually distributed as either a 6" Nu-Lex or an 8" Nu-Lex or a wide variety of other products including the Carmel, Haven and Natural Lux.

Talalay latex like that available in the Haven latex mattress is a type of latex that differs from pure, natural latex in that it is 30% synthetic. The process that creates Talalay Latex was engineered to augment the already impressive benefits of natural latex by not only ensuring the consistency in feel throughout the entire mattress but also instilling a longer life. This Talalay Latex creates an overall better latex, while still supporting the variations 100% natural latex is found in: Soft, Medium Soft and Firm.

100% Natural Latex is typically recommended for those people who prefer to remove all synthetic material from their sleeping area. This may be the result of allergies, sensitivities to the various compounds introduced by the Talalay process, or other environmental concerns. It's important to note that certain 100% Natural Latex products including the Natural Lux offer the hypoallergenic benefits of Talalay latex mattresses such as the Haven without the synthetic material. 100% Natural Latex is thus recommended for those people with heightened sensitivities to their environment.

Where can I find natural latex foam cushions?

Where can I find natural latex cushions?

Natural Latex will be a more expensive material for you to make seat cushions from (polyurethane foam is what most people use), but if you are looking to take advantage of its hypo-allergenic properties to reduce the presence of mold and allergens in the household it will work great.

Visit www.foamsource.com, they ship all of their custom seat cushions for free and you can build and order custom cushions online through the their custom cushion interface (http://www.foamsource.com/getcat.php/92). However, this interface works mostly with polyurethane foam which is the standard seat cushion foam. I think to get natural latex cushions you'll have to speak to a representative by calling in (the number is on the website). Again, you can't beat the free shipping particularly since you're in the NYC area.

Thanks and let me know if you have any further questions!
