There are many types of mattress layers that have you confused and are not ideal for sleeping. These range from memory foams, gel infused, synthetic foams, copper derived and even ubiquitous coil-spring mattresses. They have significant issues with your health, either it be sagging or their production method.
Unmatched in its superiority is rubber foam in a mattress with its ability to support your body, repel allergens and maintain structure for a long time. Just by avoiding dangerous chemicals, fumes and eliminating petrochemical based foams will have your body thanking you. However, when you add firm bounce and premium feel of an all-natural Dunlop latex mattress, you can rest in luxury and sleep with the fulfilment of fostering a better planet ecosystem ;
Latex mattresses are essentially made with rubber molded cores (sheets) that originate from rubber tree sap. This 100% pure foam is processed in a Dunlop method transforming a liquid sap into a frothy and moldable layer that is created by pouring into bed size molds before using heat and water vapor to harden it. The latex toppers and cores that forms from this process have the best combination of firmness and suppleness, one can find in a product from natural sources. The layers can be made soft or firm hence lending itself beautifully to long lasting sleep surfaces.
Petroleum based layers such as memory or other foams are notorious for generating heat due to their closed elemental structure that reflects all heat back to its source. It is the same issue with air flow hence in our view these are dangerous for sleeping. Rubber based mattress cores help your skin and body feel the air flow, they breathe with you and allows circulation of air. This process ensure thermoregulation, keeping our body at an optimum temperature suitable for sleep.
The most popular reason for health allergy prone humans to buy latex as their core is due to its great ability to resist growth of bacteria. The rubber sap creates the least ideal climate for growth of microorganisms whether it mold, mildew, fungus, etc. Inf act they even repel dust mites despite the rich environment created by human skin with its constant water and dead skin removal process.
The eco-INSTITUT was created in the mid 1990s to help guide consumers on the character and attributes of latex cores. This was to help with the lack of statutory provisions to differentiate natural production and processing of rubber latex. The body that certifies this is the Quality Association for Environmentally-Agreeable Latex Mattresses and the institute developed strict standards to award final products the QUL certificate.
The latex foams in our mattress are certified by this body and this confirms that the foam layers are free of volatile organic compounds (VOC), pesticides, health-hazardous heavy metals, PCP and nitrosamines ;
