Should I get Blended Talalay or All Natural? This is the most frequent question asked of us. Bottom line is there is no wrong choice. A good analogy of the two products goes like this- 24 karat gold vs. 14 karat gold. 24 karat gold is much more expensive but does not have the durability or strength of the 14 karat gold which is infused with stronger metals. So although the natural talalay may have a slightly more luxurious feel, it's durability is decreased. Latex International's extensive testing shows the blended talalay superior in durability and impression resistance by over 10%.
But What About the Chemicals in the Blended Talalay? What about them, they've evaporated during the heating process. All of our Talalay latex is Oeko Certified and approved for infants. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a globally uniform testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of product. The certification ensures that the products do not contain harmful substances and are not harmful to one's health. Here is a link to our OEKO-TEX Standard Certification: oeko-tex standard for 2011.pdf
