What materials is the natural latex mattress made of?
We have used almost exclusively natural materials from sustainable production for the mattress. The core is cast from pure natural latex and supported on the underside by a mat made from coconut fibres. Both are wrapped in a soft cover made of organic cotton. Only one side of the cover, which is on the underside of the mattress, is based on a synthetic material: recycled PET. We would have liked to use a natural material here, but so far none can meet the requirements of being both air-permeable and abrasion-resistant.
What makes RIAB's natural latex mattress so special?
Our natural latex mattress stands out in three ways: its sustainability, the promotion of truly healthy sleep and its price. The materials we use are all sustainably sourced and 100% natural (with the exception of the recycled PET on the underside of the cover). Our natural latex core contains no petroleum and does not emit any harmful gases. The point-elastic core adapts optimally to your body in every lying position and prevents back pain and tension. In order to enable as many people as possible to enjoy our natural latex mattress, we offer it at a particularly favourable price.
Where is the natural latex mattress produced?
The mattress is produced in Europe.
What degree of firmness does the natural latex mattress correspond to?

For which bed types is the natural latex mattress suitable?
The mattress is suitable for all bed types and can be used on almost any slatted frame and of course our Bed 2.0.
Who is the natural latex mattress suitable for?
Our natural latex mattress is suitable for people weighing up to 100 kg (from a width of 140 cm, it is designed for 2 people weighing 100 kg each). The point-elastic core supports your body optimally, regardless of the position in which you sleep. The natural materials also make the mattress the ideal sleeping surface for allergy sufferers.
Is the mattress also suitable for people with back pain?
Absolutely! The natural latex mattress supports your body optimally and prevents back pain and tension. You can use the mattress even if you already have back pain. Of course, you can test the mattress yourself for 30 days without any risk. If you don't like it, simply send it back to us free of charge*. Please note that you may experience some tension during the first few days as your body first has to get used to the new mattress. So give yourself some time to get used to your new mattress .

Can I try out the mattress?
Since it always takes some time for the body to get used to a new mattress, you can try it out for 30 nights to see if our natural latex mattress suits you. If it doesn't, simply send it back to us (free of charge within Germany).
What do I do if I don't like the natural latex mattress?
You can take 30 nights to test the mattress thoroughly. If you are not satisfied, we will pick it up again (free of charge within Germany) and refund the purchase price.
Why is the natural latex mattress only available up to a width of 140 cm?
Natural latex is a rather heavy material, which brings our 140 cm mattress to a proud weight of 38 kg. As we want to make shipping as easy, fast and cheap as possible instead of using a forwarding agency, mattress widths over 140cm are unfortunately not possible at the moment due to their high weight. However, you can order a double cover to connect the mattresses together. A gap between the individual mattresses is then no longer noticeable.
Is the mattress cover removable and washable?
Yes, thanks to the zip you can easily remove the cover and wash it at 40 °C in the washing machine.
Can I use the mattress without a sheet?
You can also sleep without a sheet on the soft cotton cover. It can be easily removed thanks to the zip and machine washed at 40 °C. A separate changeable cover is available. You can order a separate cover here.
Can I use the mattress straight after unpacking?
Sure! While the natural latex mattress usually takes a few days to fully expand, it is nonetheless ready for use right away, providing you with its full comfort.
How do I place the mattress correctly on my bed?
You can recognise the underside of your mattress by the white cover made of recycled PET and the coconut mat that is hidden directly under the cover. Both serve to protect your mattress. There is no defined head or foot end.
How long does it take to get used to my new natural latex mattress?
Especially if you have not slept on a latex mattress before, your body will need a few nights to get used to the new mattress. Even tension is not uncommon during the acclimatisation phase. In order to give you the chance to convince yourself of the mattress at your leisure, we give you the opportunity to try it out for 30 nights. If it doesn't fit, we'll pick it up free of charge and refund your money.
How can I care for my natural latex mattress?
Basically, you should make sure that your mattress is well aired during the day and that moisture can escape. All you need to do is remove the duvet. The mattress core will air out even better if you open the cover and fold it over. This should be done about once a month for at least 6 hours. The mattress cover can be completely removed and washed at 40°C in the washing machine. To evenly load the mattress and prolong its life, we recommend that you turn it 180° about every 6 months - i.e. the head end becomes the foot end.
