Dr. Futonberg's Insight on the Importance of a Latex Core in Your Mattress:

When it comes to organic futon mattresses and you are looking for all natural ingredients, do not fall for "soy based foam". Soy based foam may sound all nice and healthy, but this type of foam does not provide the same quality of density as regular petroleum based foam. The next best thing or an alternative to foam is latex. If you have the money to invest in an organic mattress, you will find that latex will provide the most ultimate comfort level. It will give shape to your mattress as well as provide a slight bounce or "give" when you plop yourself on it. Although the word "latex" has some sort of synthetic connotation (especially when you think of latex gloves), however, this type of latex is natural and comes from the rubber tree. If latex was as inexpensive as foam, I would always recommend going with latex instead of foam. Keep in mind that the latex is sandwiched in between wool and cotton batting so the surface ticking will not feel "latexy" or "rubbery". Not only does the latex provide better comfort, but it will also help keep the cotton batting and wool contents in place much better in order to have a mattress more even mattress surface.

Organic futon mattresses are for people that enjoy a simplistic natural sleep. Unlike conventional organic mattresses that can cost thousands of dollars, an organic futon mattress is simple and more cost effective. The organic futon mattress is chemical free of flame or fire retardants with no doctor's note needed. Only 100 percent US grown organic cotton and chemical free soft wool are used. There are no fire retardants used because the needle punched organic wool acts as a fire barrier around the cotton. No man-made ingredients such as foam, steel, or coil springs are used in manufacturing. This is no imitation organic futon mattress which uses a polyester synthetic cover. The cover or surface of this futon mattress is made with 100% organic cotton twill.

This futon mattress has an added featured ingredient of natural Vytex Latex which is in the core encased by the cotton. Latex is made from the rubber tree and can last up to 20 years without losing shape. The latex provides a little give or bounce in the mattress without the use of synthetic foams or steel spring coils.
Constructed only from materials sourced in the United States, each mattress is made with organic cotton and needle-punched wool that meets current fire-retardant codes.

The Natural Latex Core:
Vytex NRL has had the proteins and non-rubbers physically removed from the raw material, maintaining the positive physical attributes and sustainable properties of NRL, with little to none of the allergy- and odor-causing proteins of other non-rubbers. Totally sustainable and eco-friendly, Vytex is the only NRL that originates from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms/forests and offers Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody certification that traces the path of products from forests through the supply chain, verifying that FSC-certified material is identified or kept separated from non-certified material throughout the chain.

Dr. Futonberg's warning:

If you have been shopping around online for organic mattresses and have come across the term "green mattress", please be aware of what the word "green" implies. Don't fall for the word "green" or "green mattress". Green does not mean organic but rather environmentally friendly and biodegradable. Green also means that recycled materials were used in the manufacturing process. "Green" is just another marketing ploy that my competitors use, but in actuality the quality of materials you get in "green" are by far much more inferior to the "organic" ingredients as well as the standard ingredients you would find in a normal cotton based Gold Bond futon mattress.
