    Some rubber is natural rubber, and that comes from the Rubber Tree in Asia and Africa (Havea Brasiliensis).  Synthetic rubber can contain a number of different things depending on what the makers are looking for.  Charles Goodyear invented a process that strengthens rubber by adding sulfur to the mix.  Synthetic rubber can also be made from petroleum, coal, natural gas, and acetylene.
