Comparing our Latex International Latex Foams
The picture below shows the various ILD ratings (or firmness options) for all of our Talalay latex foams and how they compare with one another. The firmness option varies from one type of Talalay latex foam to another. If you are wondering whether the ILD means the same across our three Latex International Talalay latex foams, the answer is yes!

Comparing Our Three Latex International Latex Foams

We do offer many options, which have made it very hard for someone to decide which topper is fit for them.

The truth is that all these Latex International Talalay latex foams are Talatech®. SleepLikeABear.com offers the varieties of Talatech® Talalay latex foams: Talatech® Classic, Talatech® Natural, and Talatech® Celsion (now called Talatech® Talalay GL). Talatech® is the proprietary brand name of Talalay latex foams that are manufactured in the USA by Latex International.
Talatech® Classic is the original Talalay latex foam ever produced by Latex International. Celsion™ is Talatech® Classic that is enhanced with phase-change material for better temperature-regualating property. Note that Celsion™ is now called Talalay GL. ActiveFusion™ is also another name for it. Celsion™ or Talalay GL™ has two varieties: Fast and Slow. The original Celsion™ is Talalay GL™ Fast.

Talatech® Natural is Talatech®  that does not contain synthetic latex but only natural latex...yes, from the rubber tree.

Each type of latex foam  has unique qualities and the availability of all three helps suit the widest variety of individual needs and preferences. We really want to help you make your best judgment. Check out the summary below:

Composition


Blended Talalay latex foam: made with a proprietary blend of natural rubber tree sap and man-made Styrene Butadine Rubber (SBR)

*Note that true latex allergy is usually activated by proteins that are found in natural/botanical latex. Latex International's Talalay production process does wash away most of the proteins and allergens from latex. It is notewrothy, however, that Blended latex will have less proteins than the 100% natural latex.


    Blended Talalay latex foam, just like the Classic TalaTech. However, in the mixture was added a Phase Change material, which is the primary secret that makes this Celsion product as the best latex foam in regulating the body temperature.
