This mattress is highly recommended by previous owners who are familiar with its luxurious feel, comfort and long lasting durability. Latex is a naturally created biodegradable product. It can last up to 30 years, as a sleep surface, before it begins to break down.
Only Latex is made with real all natural foam rubber that is derived from the sap of a rubber tree. It is five times heavier than 1.0 lb. plastic-based polyurethane foam, which is commonly used as a comfort layer on conventional spring mattresses.
Five times more material, equates to less air and thus a much longer useful life as the top comfort layer of your mattress. No conventional spring mattress can duplicate the feel of Latex Rubber. It conforms dynamically to the natural contour of the human body, cradling it in plush comfort.
Not squeaky... but very clean!
Latex Foam Rubber has tiny interconnecting microcells and bigger air holes that allow the air to circulate in the mattress resulting in better thermal stability. It has been proven in independent studies to be inherently antimicrobial and hypo-allergenic. Latex inhibits the growth of mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria. It also supports 300% fewer dust mites than conventional mattresses that are topped with cotton felt.
All Natural Latex Rubber mattresses meet the highest standards of quality and hygiene. They are made with the sap from a rubber tree and formed into the best and most natural comfort ingredient. They do not contain any metal parts, spring coils or cotton felt padding, which attracts dust-mites by the thousands. They are 100% non-allergenic, dust-mite and bed bug resistant and made with certified quality that is controlled from manufacturing to point of delivery.
Latex Rubber makes an ideal mattress topper for a natural healthy sleep. It can be purchased in various thicknesses as a topper or a complete mattress. However, over the 25 years that we have been in business, we have discovered that double the benefits can be obtained by combining two natural grades to get the best comfort, support and durability.
Our most popular latex mattress consists of 3 inches of latex on either side of a 2 inch Koosh Natural core. Koosh is available in 6 different compressions and this construction works best for people that require a firmer mattress for added support or lower back pain relief. This all natural latex mattress is available in numerous Ergo Number combinations.
All Latex is not created equal!
Unfortunately, there are many imposters out there, including cheap imports, that mix latex with polyurethane foam during the pouring process, see Mattress Problems. These so-called Latex Hybrids mix 20% Latex and 80% Polyurethane foam, to keep the cost down, but they are often sold at the highest price and misrepresented as All Natural Latex.
You should also know that the word Hybrid can have different meanings. Our Koosh Hybrid mattress combines All Natural Latex with our Koosh Natural HR foam. We also do this to keep the cost down and give you a two-sided mattress with equally good grades that have different attributes.
On the other hand, some lower end latex mattresses are layered with 1 inch of latex on either side of a 6 inch core of light-weight polyurethane foam. As a foam and mattress manufacturer we can show you all the best options and the worst imitations that we have been asked to make (private label) to keep the price down. You then can decide, once you know what you are buying, what option is best for you.

The Truth About Latex Allergies
In the past, the news media has reported several cases of allergies to latex products. It is important to understand that all recorded incidents were from medical applications with products produced in a dipped molding process.
This is very different from the way latex foam rubber is made. There have been no reported incidents of reactions to the millions of pillows, mattresses and cosmetic latex sponges that have been produced in the last 55 years.
