Nature's Home Solutions, the exclusive U.S. distributor of Vytex NRL foam, is a new distribution company devoted to identifying and bringing to market innovative, sustainably sourced eco-friendly materials and technologies for use in the furnishings and other markets.
Recently retailers have seen an increase in the demand for natural products that reduce chemicals in homes and everyday life. Vytex was developed as an alternative material to petroleum-based synthetics and traditional, natural rubber latex and is currently used in consumer and medical products including adhesives, balloons, surgical and exam gloves, and now home goods.
"I am incredibly excited and honored that our company has been chosen to be the first bedding manufacturer to introduce this product. Latex is a fast growing category and the innovation in the Vytex product is just stunning. We believe it will be a major part of our portfolio in the near term," said Gold Bond President Robert Naboicheck. "This is a great opportunity for us and we are thrilled to play a large role in an industry first."
"Gold Bond has been an innovator in the bedding industry for decades and it is so exciting to see them embrace Vytex so they can continue to lead the industry by delivering bedding options to consumers that are sustainable, natural and healthier for both consumers and the environment," stated Tom Eisenberg, President of Nature's Home Solutions.
Vytex NRL is the only NRL where the proteins and non-rubbers have been physically removed from the raw material, maintaining the positive physical attributes and sustainable properties of NRL, with little to none of the allergy- and odor-causing proteins of other non-rubbers. Totally sustainable and eco-friendly, Vytex is the only NRL that originates from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms/forests and offers Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody certification that traces the path of products from forests through the supply chain, verifying that FSC-certified material is identified or kept separated from non-certified material throughout the chain.
