More and more people are learning about the comfort and benefits a natural latex mattress can provide. The latex mattress industry is one of the fastest growing segments of the mattress industry and rightly so. Who wouldn’t want a comfortable, hypoallergenic mattress that can last upwards of 30 years? The article Benefits of Latex Foam Mattresses reminded me of what an all natural latex mattress offers.
A all natural latex mattress is 100% botanically derived. It is antimicrobial, dust mite free, and resists mold and mildew. It gently supports your body’s individual contours, reducing pressure points and the need to toss and turn to get comfortable. A good all natural latex mattress mattress should come with a 20 year warranty and can last 30 years! Once you decide to replace it, it’s 100% recyclable!
But beware of the “wannabes.” Up to 80% of all latex mattresses are not all natural, but are made synthetically using petrochemicals. Although the manufacturers and retailers would like you to believe these are just as good as all natural, but cheaper, it just isn’t so. Synthetically made latex mattresses have a tendency to develop lumps, bumps, and sags and don’t last nearly as long as 100% all natural latex mattresses do. Besides, who wants to sleep with dust and chemicals?
