Natural Latex is a product from Mother Nature, produced from the sap of the rubber tree. Theptex will never compromise on your health. NEVER. We restrain from blending in cheap and low quality synthetic rubber (SBR) and hazardous materials because they can cause toxic off-fumes.
The latex sap from the rubber tree contains antibacterial compounds, a trait that is transferred to our natural latex mattresses. Furthermore, latex sap is dust mite resistant by nature.
Tapping a rubber tree to collect the sap will not kill the tree so they continue to remove carbon dioxide from the air for many years to come. Our mattresses do not add to the World`s mountains of trash. Latex mattresses last longer than other types of mattresses and they are completely biodegradable at the end of their life cycle.
50% of the world’s production of latex comes from Thailand. Theptex preferred to be close to the source of raw material, thereby reducing our ecological footprint.
The unique, nonlinear compression profile of a rubber cell makes heavier parts of the body sink into the mattress while lighter areas are still supported. This optimal alignment of the spine keeps the pain away and improves blood circulation.
The natural open-cell structure of latex allows optimal airflow and keeps your mattress dry. Combined with latex’ antimicrobial features latex mattresses are free from mold and mildew which makes for a cooler and more hygienic sleep.
Minimal Motion Transfer
The natural resiliency of latex means that movement on one side of the mattress is not transmitted easily to the other side.
