Two products in one! Our natural latex crib mattress is made with a 6" natural latex core. We use 31 ild latex for a firm crib mattress. The natural latex core is then covered in our untreated, natural wool moisture resistant fabric which is the same natural fabric we use for our moisture resistant pads. This natural wool outer will help to repel liquids, keeping the natural latex core in good shape. Because wool is a natural fire-retardant, we do not use any fire-retardant chemicals in or on this organic crib mattress.
Standard Crib Mattress Size: 28x52x6"
Natural Latex also known as Natural Rubber comes from the Rubber Tree (Hevea Brasiliensis) and it's acquired through a method called "tapping" where the latex serum is collected from the latex ducts of the Rubber Tree and then used to make Natural Latex.
Unlike synthetic man made latex, Pure Natural Latex is naturally anti-microbial and dust mite resistant; making it perfect for allergy sufferers or anyone who needs to breathe fresh, clean air while sleeping. Its breathable qualities allow it to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter and it is one of the most naturally durable and cushioning materials available in nature, in addition to being biodegradable.
