Natura Organic Mattress Collection
In an industry that focuses on romancing features and benefits, it can be hard to pin down nitty gritty details. Lots of companies claim organic but skirt the issue of organic certifications.
Until we have common guidelines, here’s what you need to know about Natura’s organic latex mattresses. Natura’s organic line is made with certified organic materials, which means it’s chemical and pesticide free. All queen size mattresses in this line are made with 8 lbs of 100% certified organic wool.
Latex is harvested as a milky substance from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree in Asia. The trees grow naturally in forests – without the use of herbicides, pesticides or large farm equipment. Harvesting of our latex is done by hand and, like tapping for maple syrup, the trees aren’t harmed. Natural rubber changes consistency very quickly when exposed to air. The latex is processed the same day and near the harvest site to reduce the need for chemical stabilization or contamination during transportation. The latex is whipped into a thick froth, flash frozen and then heated to cure it into the flat slabs. Nothing is added to it and it’s 100% natural latex.
But if you’re an organic guru, you know that latex itself can never be certified organic – by any mattress manufacturer. Latex must be cleaned with soaps during processing to be considered safe for consumer use. Latex proteins, benign to most of us, can cause severe allergic reactions in some people and are carefully regulated. Natura produces a line of organic mattresses that are 99.9% natural, including the latex, but only the wool and cotton are 100% certified organic by a third party source.
Natura’s organic latex mattresses have no artificial additives, harmful chemicals or fire retardants. They pass and exceed fire regulation laws with purely organic materials. They’re hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant and will not support mildew or bacteria growth.
