20 cm of Organic Latex to create your perfect feel
The most popular Seraphic 20 combination
The Seraphic 20 Organic Latex Mattress consists of three layers of latex which can be customised to your perfect feel. Choose between soft, medium or firm feel. And if you want your bed to be a little softer or firmer, we exchange the layers for you - free of charge - for the first three months.
Customise your mattress and find your perfect feel. Adapt your Seraphic Mattres to the seasons by putting the firmer layer on top for summer and the softer layer on top for winter.
This mattress is made from natural materials for a better and safer bed. The latex in this mattress is 100% organic and certified by GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard).
The mattress covers are dry clean only. Spot clean marks with a damp (not wet) cloth.
Please note that the mattress covers cannot be washed since this will cause the wool to shrink. If you need to replace your mattress cover you can order one by contacting us, letting us know what size and type of mattress you have.

The amount or thickness of latex differs between Seraphic models:

Our customers' favourite mattress is the Seraphic 15 with 'medium feel' layers of latex. Balanced to suit most people's sleep requirements of support and comfort. Thick enough to completely avoid pressure points with all but the softest latex.
The most versatile option is the Seraphic 20 medium. It can be made firmer or softer simply by ordering the latex layers differently. If you like a very soft mattress, we recommend the soft Seraphic 20. It is so thick that even the fluffiest latex can be used without any pressure points.
If you like a firm and compact mattress with little bounce, we recommend the Seraphic 10.
Latex is the sap or 'milk' of the rubber tree. To extract the latex, a sliver of bark is hand cut from the trunk of the rubber tree, and the milk is sustainably 'tapped' into a cup. This labour intensive process results in one or two cups of milk per tree per day.
Here at Natural Beds we import organic latex foam of outstanding purity from a Sri Lankan sustainably-grown rubber plantation and latex foam manufacturer called EcoLatex. No pesticides are used on the trees and no synthetics are used in manufacturing.
This organic latex foam is made with a modern Dunlop method where a precise amount of latex milk is foamed with carbon dioxide, vacuum expanded to a foam of a given density, then temperature cured into layers of elastic foam.
EcoLatex has several organic, ethical and sustainability certifications including Global Organic Latex Standard, Forest Stewardship Council and Fair Rubber.
Organic latex foam is non-toxic, unappealing to dust mites (which can cause of sleep allergies), resistant to mold and mildew, as well as being the best performing and most environmentally friendly bed material available.
Latex does not off-gas harmful chemicals, and is better all round than sprung or synthetic mattresses.
Memory foam is made of synthetic materials like polyurethane, solvents, adhesives and other chemicals. Tempurpedic has been taken to court based on their mattresses off-gassing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde. VOCs have been related to sickness, allergies, asthma and sudden infant death syndrome.
Tempur foam or memory foam is often compared to latex. A significant difference is that latex is 'temperature neutral', whereas memory foam often gets softer as it gets hotter. For this reason memory foam mattresses can be hot and sticky to sleep in. We regularly hear people complaining of feeling 'trapped in a hole' in a memory foam bed because they sink-in as the foam softens and can't roll over in their sleep.
For those people upgrading from a memory foam mattress who are looking for a natural 'moulds to the body' feel may like a 'very soft' latex mattress - often described like 'sleeping on a cloud' - with a knitted cover so that even the fabric has the flexibility to contour to the body.
Polyester foam, Polyurethane foam and plastic foam are made from synthetic or petrochemical derivatives. We avoid using any synthetic foam in our beds because it sags faster, contains multiple toxic materials, lacks elasticity, and is often 'closed cell' and so it doesn't breath. The structure of polyester mattress foam is not stable, and it will begin to sag over weeks and months. There are no advantages to synthetic foam mattresses except that low-quality foam mattresses can be made very cheaply. As it is hand gathered from rubber tree milk, latex foam is more expensive but far better value. It is more comfortable from the first sleep and will stay like that much longer, plus organic latex is completely non-toxic.
We hope so but it is difficult for us to say.
Physiotherapists, osteopaths and other specialist doctors give professional advice regarding the most suitable properties of mattress for given medical conditions.
We expect that the high-purity, organic latex layers in these mattresses will last decades. We recommend a new quilted cover about every 10 years - or use a thick, natural mattress protector.
Fortunately it is simple to put a new cover on latex layers, and this does wonders to refresh old latex mattresses.
With reasonable care many people get decades of use from their latex mattress.
We have a ten year warranty on the manufacturing and materials of all our full latex mattresses.
Latex mattresses are incredibly durable, but benefit from reasonable care.
We recommend that all beds are kept in rooms where air can circulate and not retain moisture. The fabric in our latex mattress covers is not treated with preservatives or mould suppressants, so keep the mattress in a dry environment.
Latex is innately bacteriostatic, meaning it resists mould. Latex is also resistant to dust mites.
Latex mattresses can last a very long time and stay in great condition.
If you want a refund within this time, just let us know and we'll collect the mattress up for free and give you a full refund on the product price minus the original delivery charge.

I wanted you to know that with our old bed my back was so sore from the minute I lay down, waking me all through the night and by morning I would be hobbling...
But no more! The support from the latex mattress is incredible. I can feel my back, and indeed my whole body coming back into correct alignment - so thank you very much!
Our new bed is brilliant and we wondered why we hadn’t invested in a new bed a long time ago.
The 100% latex inner and cotton and bamboo cover means it’s not too hot, just the right firmness – in a word perfect.
We also appreciate the great service we received from Futonz, the ability to change the inner densities around until we had the firmness that was right for us.
Just wanted to touch base to let you know that our new bed is absolutely perfect.
We are totally blown away by how comfortable and delightful it is.
Also my partner is a builder and he was not looking forward to putting the base together but was extremely impressed with how easily and neatly it went together.
