If you have found a “natural latex” mattress that isn’t featured in the comparison chart below, it is most probably because it features blended synthetic latex, or a combination of natural latex and polyurethane.
The aim of this site is to feature mattresses that don’t contain any toxic and off-gassing polyurethane, gel foam or memory foam. Synthetic foam mattresses are typically treated with fire retardant chemicals. Some of these chemicals have been banned because they have been proven to be carcinogenic. Moreover, no long term health and safety studies have been conducted on the fire retardant chemicals that are currently in use.
All Certi-Pur mattresses fall into this grey area. The Certi-Pur certification was created by the same companies who manufacture the fire retardant chemicals. The chemical manufacturers basically decide what level of toxic chemical exposure is acceptable for you by certifying the product with their own Certi-Pur certification. What a farce!
The aim of this site is to be the best online resource for comparing natural latex mattresses and natural bedding products. So, save yourself tons of time by finding and comparing all the best natural latex mattresses in one place.
Wishing you the best sleep of your life on a natural latex mattress.
