Latex is a natural product coming from the sap of the hevea (hevea brasiliensis). Latex foam is obtained by incorporating various natural syntheticadditives into the latex.
100% natural latex mattresses do not exist, the maximum percentage that can be used being 97%. When it is less than 50%, it is known as synthetic latex.
A latex mattress should preferably be combined with a slatted bedstead with sufficiently flexible slats for ensuring optimal comfort.
