Next be sure the latex that comprises the bed you are considering is 100% natural latex. There are different types of latex available including natural and synthetic latex and a combination of both. Synthetic latex contains synthetic ingredients and chemicals that are in no way natural. Whether you are considering Talalay or Dunlop latex be sure that it is 100% natural latex. While there are a few other ingredients in natural latex (zinc oxide fatty acid soaps and sulfur) rest assured they are natural ingredients. Be careful not to fall for the "Dunlop/Talalay latex is the best and we only carry the best" tactic. Many manufacturers only carry one type of latex and will tell you that the latex they carry is the best. However both Talalay latex and Dunlop latex are equally good products and a reputable company will offer you the choice. One rule of thumb to remember about the difference between the two types of latex is that Talalay latex will typically be softer than Dunlop latex of the same firmness category. For example soft Talalay latex will be softer than soft Dunlop latex. Some manufacturers will try to confuse you by telling you that there is no such thing as natural Talalay latex. And up until a few years ago that was true. However Latex International now makes a 100% natural Talalay latex product. Another consideration for the latex in your bed is the amount of latex that actually makes up the bed. Sure a manufacturer can say that the latex in the bed is 100% natural but that doesnt mean that the 100% natural latex comprises the whole bed only that the latex in the bed is 100% natural. If you are buying a 12" mattress and the mattress contains 6" of latex something else has to make up that other 6". After allowing for the wool or cotton that also make up the mattress usually around 2" what else comprises the mattress? The answer is usually polyurethane. Many companies in order to keep costs down will use a 6" polyurethane core with 2" of latex on top. Thats right polyurethane. Why would you want to sleep on the same stuff that gasoline is made from?
The memory foam mattress is a popular choice for people who want to sleep on a regular basis. Additionally the mattress is a great choice for people who want to sleep on their own. The mattress is made up of a foam layer that is thick and firm. The tempurpedic foam mattresses are a great addition to any home. The mattress is made of foam and is a good choice for the person who wants to get a bed topper.
Some organic mattress manufacturers produce an organic product only to spray it down with these chemicals to pass the flame law test. So while you are buying an organic mattress that does not necessarily mean you are buying a chemical-free mattress. It only means you are buying a mattress made with organic materials that have been sprayed with chemicals. Imagine the hypocrisy! This is where the importance of organic wool becomes apparent. Naturally wool is a fire retardant. Wool doesnt burn when exposed to a flame. When wool is used in an ample amount (an inch compressed) it becomes a fire retardant that passes the federal flame law requirements making chemicals no longer necessary. While it is more costly to use wool a true organic mattress manufacturer goes the extra step to be sure that your mattress is chemical free and truly organic. By the way there are other fire-proofing methods available that are not chemical but they also are not natural or organic. Be sure to ask if the manufacturer is using organic wool for fire retardant in the organic mattress.
