What is a natural latex mattress? As one of the least known components used in mattresses, you may have not heard of a latex mattress before — and that’s okay. Our mattress experts at Texas Mattress Makers are here to answer all of your questions about natural latex mattresses.

At Texas Mattress Makers, all of our natural latex components are all-natural latex made using the Talalay latex method. This means that our latex mattresses are made with 100% natural latex, not a synthetic blend. We do not use any chemicals during the mattress manufacturing process so that our customers can sleep on non-toxic, handmade mattresses for a restful sleeping experience.

What is a latex mattress made of?

Latex is a liquid that comes from the sap of rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis, also known as the Pará rubber tree) that are typically found in South America. Once the sap is extracted from the tree, the liquid latex is whipped, poured into a mattress mold, and baked until it forms a soft mattress material that is frozen and then heated to set its final consistency. 

As mentioned earlier, Texas Mattress Makers uses all-natural latex components made from the Talalay latex method. We get our latex from Talalay Global, which is the world’s largest producer of latex and the only manufacturer in the United States. Every latex mattress bought from Texas Mattress Makers is ethically sourced and made in the USA. 

Latex is a luxury, clean component that provides customers with the ultimate plush feeling in a mattress.  Latex sleeps cooler as well and helps provide for a more supportive sleep so that your mattress will last longer.

Types of natural latex

We believe not all mattresses are one-size-fits-all. Though latex has many benefits that can suit many sleepers, one type of latex may be better for your needs than another. That’s why Texas Mattress Makers carries different types of Talalay latex components.

Celsion latex 

Celsion latex is our softest latex and is a great option for back and side sleepers who may sleep hot during the night. The Celsion latex layer features an open cell structure that lifts your body as you sleep and promotes airflow, reducing body temperature and helping you sleep cooler in the Texas heat.

Copper-infused latex 

​​Copper-infused latex has a medium plush feel and offers natural, anti-inflammatory properties that relieve aches and pains associated with arthritis, and is typically suitable for any sleeping position. The rubber cell structure of this latex gently lifts your body and helps to limit mattress sagging.

Graphite-infused latex

Graphite-infused latex is our medium-firm to firm latex and it uses natural graphite minerals to provide more cushion with enhanced durability and strength which is ideal for back and stomach sleepers. The open cell structure promotes blood circulation for healthy pressure relief and airflow for a cooler night’s sleep.

What is the benefit of a latex mattress?

Latex is a component that can solve a wide variety of sleep issues. Whether you need a latex comfort layer for that “just right” feel or a latex base layer for sturdy support, latex is a versatile component to look out for. For example, natural latex mattresses can be ideal for many side and back sleepers, or sleepers who don’t like the “cradling” feeling of traditional memory foam but need to relieve pressure in their joints, which can be provided by a softer material in the comfort layer of their mattress.

Some natural latex mattress benefits include:

  • Eco-friendly 
  • A clean and inherently natural component
  • Relieves pressure as you sleep
  • Highly durable
  • Optimal support for all sleeping positions 
  • Hypoallergenic 
  • Breathable structures for cooler sleep
  • And more!

Due to its many benefits, all-natural latex can come with a heftier price point than more traditional mattress components. However, we believe that luxurious sleep shouldn’t break the bank. At Texas Mattress Makers, we cut out the middleman in our mattress distributing processes so that you only have to pay for the components you choose. This means no excessive storage and labor fees. And, if you are concerned with mattress recycling in Houston, we provide free mattress removal with our white-glove mattress delivery service.
