Pure Natural Rubber foam is made from the milk (sap) tapped from the Hevea Brasiliensis, the common rubber tree, grown on Malaysian and Sri Lankan plantations. The Hevea milk is harvested in the morning and by afternoon it is being molded into sheets of pure natural rubber. No chemicals are added to the milk during this process. The natural rubber foam is made using the Dunlop system to produce the purest latex foam. This process involves only air, natural soap and vulcanization agents, which are used to ensure the latex foam keeps its form. The finished latex foam is shipped to Canada where the pillows are expertly crafted and covered. Manufacturing the latex foam where the sap is harvested helps sustain the local economy and provide jobs without depleting the natural resources of the country of origin.
Damask cotton is 100% organic, certified through GOTS. It is cultivated and hand picked in the traditional co-operative manner that has been followed for centuries in the Canete and Chincha valleys high in the Peruvian Andes. It is grown organically without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or defoliants to fertilize the crop, control plant growth or fight pests. No synthetic chemicals are used to strip the leaves in preparation for the harvest or during the manufacturing process. It is woven to very high standards into the finest fabrics, in Peru and Belgium.

Summary:We are a big fan of the Solus Organic Shredded Natural Rubber Pillow and feel it is a great fit for wide variety of people accommodating all sleep positions. Not only is it a safe choice for an allergy sufferer or the chemically sensitive, but it's vegan and crafted using environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing. Our testing team loved the flexibility of this pillow's shredded rubber filling. It is a perfect pillow for someone who likes to bunch and re-shape their pillow. Please keep in mind that although the shredded rubber filling is soft and resilient, it does have a slight "lumpy” feel because of all of the rubber pieces. None the less, we found that once you get used to the shredded rubber's non-traditional feel, you will love it.
