Yulex is a neoprene material made from natural rubber harvested from rubber trees. The rubber is derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council certified by the Rainforest Alliance, and the rubber is chlorine-free.

Yulex neoprene generates less CO2 during manufacturing compared to synthetic neoprene, but it has nearly identical physical performance in terms of tensile strength, tear strength, and elasticity.

The material in the photo is laminated with recycled polyester fabric.

The natural neoprene can be used for a variety of application, including wetsuits.

The company is working on domesticating the Russian dandelion and guayule as alternative sources of plant-based rubber.
