So you want a 100% all-natural, completely botanical latex mattress. You want it for its comfort, as well as the fact that it is hypoallergenic, dust mite-free, and antibacterial. Great! So what do you want your 100% all-natural latex mattress to be covered with so you can really benefit from latex’s great qualities?
There are two methods of making latex for latex mattresses. The oldest method is the Dunlop method, which I covered in a previous blog. The newer method, which is used primarily for making synthetic latex, is the Talalay method. Although the Dunlop method is the primary method for making all-natural latex, it gets a bit more confusing when you learn that the Talalay method can also be used for making not just synthetic latex, but natural latex too.
There are two different methods for making a latex mattress – the Dunlop method and the Talalay Method. In this blog I am going to talk about the Dunlop method.

A 100% all-natural latex mattress is made from the sap of rubber trees and is completely botanical. It is antibacterial, hypoallergenic, and resistant to dust mites. This makes an all-natural latex mattress a great choice for those with allergies or who want a greener, botanical mattress than traditional mattresses. A latex mattress is also very comfortable, making it a great mattress for anyone looking for a comfortable mattress too.
Dust mites are a common allergen in the home, collecting in carpets, on window coverings, in mattresses, and anywhere dust finds a place to settle. Although the perception that mattresses double in weight every 10 years due to dust and dust mites is a myth (see http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/household/mattress.asp), those with allergies or the desire to lessen their contact with dust mites are frequently turning to 100% all-natural latex mattresses.
