Description

It is impossible for laypersons to differentiate the material “natural latex” from synthetic latex which is produced from oil. The expensive latex is often “stretched” with chalk or calcium. Also, mattresses with only 2% natural latex are sold as natural latex mattresses, although there certainly are 100% natural latex mattresses available in the retail trade.  In order to balance the lack of protection for the term natural latex, the QUL was founded at the end of 1994. It developed the QUL quality seal.
