The reason is that natural latex is made straight from the sap, or latex, collected from the rubber tree. The cover over the mattress should be certified organic as it improves breathability and a soft feel for improved comfort. Between the natural latex mattress and organic cover there should be a layer of one hundred percent wools to help regulate your body temperature.
