Natural Variations in Latex Foam

Latex foam is a minimally processed material that uses the bare minimum of non-

organic compounds in the manufacturing process. The result is a product that has

variation from piece to piece and even within the same piece. The latex foam sheets

that we use as our latex mattresslayers all have some level of variation. These

inconsistencies do not affect the layer’s comfort, quality or durability.


As a general rule, latex made using the Dunlop process will have more irregularity

than latex made using the Talalay process, which involves greater processing. 

Some inconsistencies you might find in latex foam includes:


Discoloration: Latex foam goes through a baking process while in the mold used to

form the sheets. This can sometimes leave discolored marks. Latex foam also

naturally changes color over time, due to the natural oxidation process.


Small Voids or Uneven Texture: You may notice minor voids or uneven looking

texture on the surface of your latex mattress. These cosmetic inconsistencies will not

affect the durability of your mattress and are often caused when the foam is removed

from the mold or during the cooling process because there are no additional

chemical binders being used.

Remember: nothing in nature is without its imperfections – that’s what makes us

100% perfect just the way we are!
