Naturally Organic Natural Rubber

Naturally Organic Natural Rubber

Naturally Organic uses only the finest grade A natural rubber for the support core at the center of our organic mattresses, futon beds, and toppers. Natural rubber is an ideal choice: it is flexible, yet stable, for superior comfort. And, like Naturally Organic cotton and wool, the rubber is absorbent and resilient, contributing to excellent heat and moisture regulation.

Naturally Organic rubber is harvested by tapping the milk (sap) of Hevea brasiliensis (the common rubber tree). The trees grow in North Malaysian plantations especially selected for their high-quality product. No herbicides are used in these operations, because sheep graze the plantations and control growth.

Naturally Organic also arranges for the Hevea milk to be processed close to the plantations, because the raw product destabilizes when kept too long. Other manufacturers avoid the problem by adding chemicals. Naturally Organic’s pledge to bring you the purest products possible means that the rubber milk harvested in the morning is molded into sheets by mid-afternoon and is soon shipped to our Canadian mattress plant. By having our rubber manufactured where the trees’ milk is harvested, we also help to sustain the local economy.

Natural methods only
An injection system produces the purest natural product — for mattress cores that will keep their shape. Only air, natural soap, and natural vulcanization agents are used. At the end of the mattress life cycle, the rubber breaks down, because it is a natural, biodegradable substance.


  • It’s a little known fact that Hevea milk contains an antibacterial substance that is a natural dust-mite repellent.
  • The rubber also exhibits superior durability and elasticity (for longevity)
  • Retention of shape and firmness (for even support)
  • Flexibility combined with stability (for continuous sleep comfort)
  • Excellent heat and moisture regulation
  • Superior air circulation (for preventing the growth of molds and mildew)
