Latex
Used to provide stretch to fabrics. 100% natural latex contains no synthetic ingredients. Blended latex, also know as Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), is produced with petrochemicals and doesn't not have the resilience properties that 100% natural latex has. In Europe, anything that has at least 20% natural latex is considered natural.
