100% Natural Talalay Latex

All Latex Is Not Created Equal 

The natural latex used in all Søvn Beds is 100% natural Talalay latex foam certified by Oekotex 100. This certification verifies that our latex foam conforms to the strictest European standard for harmful substances and chemicals in mattresses.

Our Manufacturing Process

Natural latex is harvested from the sap of the rubber tree. This raw material is made into latex foam through a complex process. The quality of the raw material is extremely important; however, just as important is the state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, manufacturer experience, and quality controls of the manufacturer. That is why we buy our latex only from suppliers where we have inspected the production facility and know and trust the quality control, purity, and consistency of the natural latex product.

Proven Track Record

Originally developed in 1929, latex has a proven track record of over 80 years of providing reliable, healthy support.

Natural Latex Foam vs Synthetic Foam (polyurethane & memory foam): 

Natural latex is more elastic, more dense, and more durable than any polyurethane foam. It minimizes contact pressure and remains resistant to wear over time.

Natural latex foam provides:

  • Exceptional support
  • Even cushioning
  • Resilience – regains its shape immediately.
  • Extremely Durable - lasts 3-4 times longer than synthetic foams.
  • Moisture-resistance - ventilating structure creates a cool, dry environment.
  • Anti-allergenic properties - naturally resistant to dust mites, hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.

Synthetic Foam has several drawbacks including:

  • A fragile structure that breaks down quickly, forming sags and body impressions.
  • It traps moisture, making for hotter sleeping temperatures and a favorable climate for dust mites, molds, and mildew.
  • Manufactured from petroleum by-products and contain a myriad of chemicals including VOCs, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and hexanal.

NOTE:

(a) Most name brand mattresses are made with synthetic foam and/or memory foam.
