At FoamSource we pride ourselves on having designed and produced natural latex mattresses for over 28 years. We are among a very few vendors that introduced the boutique latex mattresses online almost two decades ago. Of course we've seen a lot of changes in that time. The demand for latex and the cost of moving latex cores, or, in the case of Latex International, latex sap, has contributed to very large price increases. Competition online has steadily increased and, in some cases, has made it difficult to separate fact from fiction in the marketing of their products.
natural latex mattress provides an incomparable sleeping surface, with the highest durability available in a mattress. A 100% natural latex mattress should never be confused with mattresses that call themselves latex because they have used latex somewhere in the mattress. With natural latex the test is very simple. You will want a latex mattress that is designed so that you are sleeping directly on top of latex, separated by only a cotton cover with wool batting. Don't accept anything else! Natural latex, by itself, is a beautifully buoyant material that literally floats you, relieving aches, pains and pressure points. Natural latex conforms to your body, without that sinking feeling that characterizes memory foam.
Now, we have you floating on a layer of natural latex, what's next? Well, of course, that would be body support and, once again, latex cannot be matched or duplicated. Forgiving, yet supportive, is the primary feel you'll discover in a natural latex mattress. Want your mattress firm? No problem, you'll find yourself firmly supported, without the discomfort many experience on conventional mattresses. One last thing about natural latex when you are buying a new mattress, insist on Oeko-Tex certifications that designate the latex tested as either 100% natural Talalay or Dunlop latex. This is the safest way to avoid online sellers that purposely "greenwash" their mattresses.
Natural latex mattresses remain a small, yet rapidly growing, niche in the mattress market. In our retail store in Boulder, CO we have always stated that "we want your family to sleep as well as ours", and we mean it! Not everyone will discover, or have the opportunity to try, a natural latex mattress. At FoamSource, we make sure that, when the opportunity comes around to GO NATURAL in mattresses for your family, you will never be disappointed!
