Latex foam is a relatively new material used for mattresses that is becoming quite popular. Latex foam mattresses provide for “motionless” comfort and independent support unlike conventional spring mattresses. Manufacturers like Royal Pedic use only natural latex in their mattresses that are hypoallergenic, hygienic and antibacterial. During the production process, the milky white latex is converted into a mattress core that undergoes four rinsing processes to eliminate rubber odors. The ecologically friendly process passes strict European standards that certify the natural latex has no chemical properties that would cause a reaction to humans or have a detrimental impact to the environment during manufacturing.
