Natural latex foam is made from the rubber tree’s sap or milk that goes through either the Dunlop or Talalay process to create the foam used in mattresses. It is an entirely natural plant product. Dunlop latex feels a bit more dense and provides great support and Talalay latex results in a softer-feeling foam. Both types are great and it is a matter of personal choice which one you prefer.
Latex foam comes in three types: 100% natural, synthetic and blended. Synthetic latex is made in-lab to mimic the look and feel of its natural counterpart. Blended latex is a combination of synthetic and natural latex. At Milam mattress we only use 100% natural latex.
We chose to work with natural latex as it provides the best spine alignment, it is hypoallergenic, extremely durable and also very eco-friendly. It feels like you are supported by an infinite number of springs.
