Latex For Less Construction
Although there are only a couple of layers on the Latex for Less mattress, there’s some great science behind each material. Let’s take a closer look at each layer of the mattress to see why it has been so well received:
Organic Cotton Cover:
The cover of the mattress is made with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) organic cotton that is stretched and not woven. Stretching the cotton allows for superior softness and breathability. On the underside of the cotton cover is an all-natural California wool barrier that is naturally fireproof (no chemicals or adhesives) and provides added breathability.
Organic Cotton Cover:
Because the mattress is flippable, the organic cotton cover with wool barrier is then repeated. To change the firmness of the mattress (medium / firm), simply flip the mattress over.
Latex is one of the most superior natural polymers known to man. Inherently breathable, a latex mattress is made up of thousands of microscopic air channels running through the mattress. These air channels draw body heat away from the body, expelling it out of the mattress efficiently. Latex also wicks moisture away from your body, keeping you comfortable year round.
If you’re in the market for a latex mattress, make sure it’s 100% natural latex. Most latex foams are blended with synthetic materials, most of which are manufactured with harmful gases, adhesives and solvents. 100% natural latex will be chemical free, hypo-allergenic and resistant to mould and mildew. Studies also show that latex is 3 times more resistant to dust-mites than other common foams used in today’s mattresses.
Latex For Less Comfort
Because the mattress is 100% natural latex, it’s extremely comfortable. Latex naturally equalizes body weight by cushioning your body’s pressure points (shoulders, hips, knees)- this helps to relieve aches and pains. The latex is extremely responsive and also reduces motion transfer, making this an excellent mattress for couples. The organic cotton cover offers excellent breathability and the wool barrier enhances thermo-regulation, meaning you’ll sleep cool in summer and warm in winter. Those who suffer from allergies will love this mattress as all the materials in the mattress (cover included) are naturally hypoallergenic.
Latex For Less Support
Dunlop latex provides excellent support and with 6 inches of Dunlop latex included in this mattress, it’s safe to say you’ll be sleeping solid. Dunlop latex conforms to the unique shape of your body, allowing your spine to gently align across a variety of sleeping positions. Keeping your spine aligned through the night reduces pressure on your spinal cord, allowing your central nervous system to function correctly as you rest up.
