100% Natural Latex Mattress Guide: Everything You Need to Know

Organic Mattresses with Natural Latex 

  • What can be recommended for comfortable sleep?

Based solely on comfort, I chose natural latex among a variety of natural and artificial latex mattresses. Honestly, if you try to learn more about latex, you will understand that there are many subtleties. I mentioned only the main difference in latex above – natural and artificial. Now I will tell you how latex is actually made.

The Benefits of Choosing a Natural Latex Mattress

What are the benefits of a latex mattress?

Another advantage of natural latex is that it does not heat up during sleep, and dust mites and other microorganisms cannot survive in latex due to its unique organic properties. Natural latex is a durable material that is resistant to caking and adapts to shape of the body. Because of its ability to change shape and high elasticity, it allows you to easily roll over from side to belly or from side to back, and this contributes to full natural sleep.

Synthetic latex

Why, then, despite all these benefits of natural latex, most mattress manufacturers use cheaper artificial latex or a mixture of natural latex with cheap Synthetic latex? In my opinion, there are no advantages for Synthetic latex in comparison with the natural latex for the consumer (although some manufacturers claim that Synthetic latex is slightly more elastic). And at the same time, artificial latex has many drawbacks (it is made of artificial components, I like the sensations from natural rubber more than from artificial rubber, natural latex has anti-bacterial and anti-allergenic properties, etc.).

The decisive factor is the price. It is less expensive for a manufacturer to make a mattress from artificial latex or from a mixture of natural and artificial latex than completely from natural latex.

All-Natural Latex

But until the mattress reaches the buyer, the difference in price between the mattress with artificial latex (or a mixture of latex) and with natural latex becomes almost imperceptible. Only the manufacturer receives a higher profit from the use of artificial latex. But while there is a difference in comfort, hypo-allergenicity and environmental properties of mattresses, I believe that all-natural latex mattresses are the best product of the highest class.

How Is Natural Latex Made?


Natural latex is collected manually in liquid form, then poured into large vats, where it is carefully filtered to remove solid particles. Then it is poured into large forms, where it is emulsified with water and air bubbles. Then slowly heated and vulcanized – the process where liquid latex rubber goes into an elastic dense state.

Dunlop method

As I mentioned above, there are two methods of vulcanization, which are used to make durable latex. An older and more time-tested technology is the Dunlop method, which results in a denser and slightly more rigid natural latex.

Talalay method

The newer technology, called the Talalay method, is essentially the same original method, except that it includes rapid cooling (which leaves fewer air bubbles in the mold) just before the latex heats up quickly until it thickens. The result is a softer, less dense latex.

The conclusion can be the following: natural latex made according to the Dunlop method is harder and better able to change shape than the latex made according to the Talalay method. And since Dunlop latex is less expensive than Talalay latex, its cost is lower. For these reasons, I prefer natural latex and Dunlop.
