Sometimes we get questions that are pretty vague like, “What’s the best foam mattress?” Foam mattress could mean memory foam, natural latex foam, or even plain polyurethane foam. Usually what people mean when they ask, “What is the best foam mattress?” is one of three things: 1.) What is the best memory foam mattress? 2.) What is the best natural latex mattress? or 3.) What is the best foam mattress, natural latex or memory foam?
More and more people who want to live a more eco-friendly life are choosing a 100% all-natural latex mattress for their mattress of choice. It is completely botanical and its unique composition makes it hypoallergenic, free of dust mites, and antibacterial. A natural latex mattress is made from the sap of a rubber tree and is completely recyclable.
Would you like to know what type of mattresses are rated the most comfortable? According to the top-rated sleep review site, SleepLiketheDead, it’s the memory foam mattress followed closely by the natural latex mattress. This research is based on actual customer satisfaction data.
Although both are extremely comfortable, they are different. A memory foam mattress conforms to your body’s shape, cradling your body and reducing pressure points. A latex mattress has a firmer, more bouncier feel than a memory foam mattress. It does not change its shape or conform to your body’s contours.
Are you thinking about a natural latex mattress and all the benefits it can provide? A 100% all-natural latex mattress is hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and dust mite-free. It is also extremely comfortable. If those are not enough great reasons to think about an all-natural latex mattress, here is one more… Since an all-natural latex mattress is completely botanical and made from the sap of a rubber tree, it is completely recyclable. That is another great benefit of a natural latex mattress.
There are a lot of “natural” latex mattresses out there. Unfortunately, many of these so-called “natural” latex mattresses are not really natural latex at all, but are actually man-made or synthetic latex. A truly 100% all-natural latex mattress is made from sap from a rubber tree, not synthetic petrochemicals. Buyers have to be very careful when looking for an all-natural latex mattress. Many of the latex mattresses that are called “natural” contain just a tiny amount of natural latex and the rest is synthetic. I even had to fight to get the truth out of many latex manufacturers when sourcing our 100% natural latex mattress. Many manufacturers tried to push their “natural” latex on me that wasn’t 100% natural at all. It sometimes took a lot of questioning and arm twisting to get this information even when sourcing materials as an insider!
House dust mites, those tiny little critters that love to hang our with their human hosts, can be troublesome for those with allergies or asthma.

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.
