A biodegradable end-product

Research shows (1) a significant decrease in the mass of natural latex foam during a 3-month soil burial.

The biodegradability of natural latex foam is further supported by the degraded area of the cell structure.

It is therefore estimated that it takes 2-3 years for natural latex foam to be fully decomposed.
