Industry supplier Latexco US, headquartered in Lavonia, Georgia, has earned Global Organic Latex Standard certification for its NaturalFoam line of latex cores, toppers and pillows made from 100% natural latex.
“We are the only latex foam manufacturer in the U.S. that offers an entire assortment of latex, and now it includes GOLS-certified latex,” said Jim Gutierrez, Latexco general manager. “Research shows strong trends of more consumers are seeking organic products because they are concerned about the wellness of their family and want their home free of harmful chemicals.”
GOLS is a private, third-party certification program for organic latex foam administered by Peterson & Control Union, with U.S. headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The standard certifies that latex components and latex-containing finished products have 95% natural rubber content from certified-organic rubber tree plantations.
