Latex foam is made by using the product of trees (Hevea Brasiliensis). The liquid rubber is extracted without harming the trees. In fact the trees are "tapped" and continue to grow for many many years capturing carbon during their lifetime. Graphite Latex is also seen as superior to standard latex foam (see below).

What is Graphite Latex?

Whilst having all the usual benefits of Latex foam, graphite Latex foam has so much more! Infusing the natural mineral (graphite) into the Latex foam during production makes for a naturally flame retardant foam, ending the need for chemical additives, making it not only good for you but good for the environment too. The graphite flakes expand at combustion temperature and cut off the supply of oxygen.

The graphite flakes change the colour of the Latex foam from cream to grey.

The graphite properties make the foam more breathable and durable and naturally anti-allergenic and dust-mite resistant (making it ideal for allergy sufferers). It absorbs heat to aid a cooler and more restful sleep; in fact it’s 7 times cooler than synthetic memory foam.  The aerated holes in this type of foam make it particularly good for pressure point pain relief such as arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Does Latex foam keep you cool?

Upon touching Latex foam you can instantly feel a cooling to your fingertips. As well as being cool to touch latex is also incredibly breathable and has built in air channels throughout its core to increase airflow and remove moisture.

Is graphite Latex better for the environment?

As Latex is plant based the trees that continuously produce the liquid rubber capture carbon during their lifetime. The Latex produced is also carbon capturing and bio-degradable meaning that at the end of it's life it will naturally breakdown into organic waste.

How much more expensive is graphite Latex?

As Latex is harvested from a tree the raw materials cost is higher. This means that the cost of purchasing graphite latex is also higher. However graphite latex is regarded as a premium product regardless due to its; additional support, toxin free, cooling, anti microbial and anti dust mite properties.
