Natural Shredded Dunlop Latex ingredients:
1 Organic Latex Rubber 96%
2 Zinc Oxide 2%
3 Fatty Acid Soaps 1%
4 Sulfur 1%
5 Sodium 1%
Item 1 is pure, natural rubber harvested exclusively from the “Hevea Brasiliensis” tree, which grows primarily in South-East Asia. Natural tree rubber is sustainably harvested and the trees are not harmed but skillfully tapped, similar to how we harvest maple syrup here.
Ingredients 2 thru 5 are foaming agents that are essential to the vulcanization, foaming and curing process that all latex cores must go though. The finished product is then washed a minimum of 3 times to remove any residuals that may be left over after curing.
I feel assured that we are selling a product that, for being man-made, is quite natural.

Biodegradable shredded latex, although is heavier than non biodegradable synthetic pellets, is a popular choice for a natural bean bag filling.
The Dunlop process used is considered to produce a more durable foam for a longer lasting product.
Shredded latex is a great way to increase the softness of hemp or buckwheat hulls, you only need a little to make a big difference!
