The amount of products being introduced for eco friendly families over the last few years has increased ten fold because of added awareness about the harmful effects of pesticides and chemicals.
The natural mat is an organic crib mattresses that was created without the use of any glues or bonding agents. You will not find any chemicals or synthetic materials whatsoever in this mattress.
More babies are suffering from allergies and asthma. The natural rubber Latex is 100% non-allergenic and the lambswool is bathed in a mixture made from essential oils of lemon, lavender and eucalyptus which renders it anti-dust mite.
Further allergy protection can be achieved by removing the outer cover and machine washing it at 60 degrees C (dust mites are killed at 57 degrees). During a recent survey conducted by the company, 100% of the mothers questioned stated that their babies even slept better on a Natural Mat.
“My baby has never slept better. Before I bought the rubber latex mattress he used to be such an active sleeper. Now he sinks into his mattress because it is so comfortable and sleeps through the night.”
What I like is that because this mattress doesn’t have a plastic cover on it, air circulates through the mattress reducing the chances of your baby overheating during warm weather.
This company really did think of everything – naturally fire retardant, long lasting support, non-allergenic and anti-dust mite plus all the raw materials come from 100% renewable and sustainable sources that comply with Fair Trade policies.
For your convenience, this mattress comes in 3 styles: The Coco Mat, The Latex Mat and The Mohair Mat.

Latex Mat is Natural Mat’s most hypo-allergenic mattress. The latex forms a springy core and is sandwiched between layers of organic coir for extra support.

Natural Mat’s most luxurious mattress features a firmer, more supportive base.
