“Our latex is the first certified by Eco Germany to be aniline-free in 2016. Aniline is a chemical similar to carcinogen commonly found in latex products, ” Lee said at the event held in Petaling Jaya.

Lee added that the company. which was established in 1975, was committed to adopting green technology for energy savings and help reduce carbon footprint.

At the event, Malaysian celebrity Amber Chia was named Napure brand ambassador.

“We believe our collaboration with Chia will bring Napure to greater heights and make it a truly international brand, ” said Lee.

He added that Napure latex used food-grade filtered water to achieve good-quality latex foam that is allergy-free. — By KANIMOLI MANIMARAN
