Natural or organic latex is superior to synthetic latex foam. It's natural, lasts longer, and does not off-gas, as verified by our Greenguard Gold certification and Formaldehyde-Free Claim verification from UL Labs.

We use GOLS-certified organic latex in all our mattresses because it's better for you and the environment. Synthetic latex is a petrochemical product and can release chemicals into your home. You can learn more about how to choose a healthy mattress here.

We do not sell products with synthetic or blended latex. Why? Because synthetic latex is not produced by harvesting latex from rubber trees. Instead, it is a much cheaper material made from a petrochemical blend that is less responsive, less durable, and emits a dangerous chemical odor as it ages.

Organic Latex Bedding: No harmful chemicals; can last around 25 years; low VOCs; no strong odor.

Synthetic Latex Bedding: Typically lasts less than ten years; high VOCs; has a strong odor; can irritate users with allergies.
