Understanding the Latex Mattress Hype

Latex mattresses are quickly becoming one of the most sought-after sleep surfaces on the market. With a range of features that offer superior comfort, pressure relief, and durability, it’s no wonder why so many people have been opting for latex mattresses over other options. But why exactly are people so hyped about them? To understand, let us first take a look at the types of latex used in these mattresses.

Types of Latex Mattress Materials

1. Synthetic Latex

Synthetic latex is used in mattresses in an attempt to deliver an experience similar to that offered by natural latex mattresses. However, it is crucial to note that synthetic latex does not have the same buoyancy as natural latex. Typically made using a blend of materials and chemicals, such as polyurethane and other petroleum-based chemicals, rather than natural rubber from trees, off-gassing might also occur.

2. Natural Latex

Natural latex mattresses, such as our Zinus Euro Top Latex Hybrid ‘Cool’ Spring Mattress, offer a unique blend of comfort and support that is hard to find in other mattress materials. Natural latex mattresses are made from raw, natural latex and are naturally resilient, meaning that they “bounce back” to their original shape even after you lay on it for a long time. Because of this, it is an excellent choice for people seeking optimal pressure relief while still having the necessary support for proper body alignment.

3. Blended Latex

This latex mattress can provide the best of both worlds, with a combination showcasing the best characteristics of both natural and synthetic latex. By blending these two materials, sleepers can experience luxurious comfort in one single bed. Natural latex offers excellent breathability, cooling down body temperature throughout the night while providing forgiving support. On the other hand, the synthetic foam helps conform to any contours and curves of a sleep surface.

Benefits of Natural Latex Mattresses

1. Pain relieving

Latex mattresses offer many benefits for those who understand the importance of comfortable and restful sleep. For instance, their most notable benefit is their natural pain-relieving abilities. Also, latex mattresses such as the Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress help reduce the pressure put on sensitive areas like the hips, shoulders, and lower back. Compared to mattresses that don’t support your body well, a latex mattress relieves tension and eliminates the risk of pain because of its gentle cushioning and buoyant support. 

2. Hypoallergenic

Because of its natural antimicrobial property, latex is an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve their sleep quality while still avoiding common allergens like dust mites, mould spores, and pet dander found in traditional mattresses. The resourceful procurement of serene materials of a natural latex mattress alongside its ability to repel microorganisms makes it an ideal choice for those who are sensitive to materials and chemicals and have dust mite allergies.

3. Eco-friendly

Latex mattresses outperform others when it comes to their efficient production process, operating with a careful selection of top-quality materials and minimal resources. Therefore, latex mattresses are not only inherently environmentally-friendly but are also extremely sustainable. This means that when you choose a latex mattress to maximise comfort levels for a good night’s sleep, you are simultaneously making a choice to reduce the impact your purchase has on the environment. 

4. Breathable

Latex mattresses like our Zinus Euro Top Latex & Memory Foam Hybrid ‘Cool’ Spring Mattress are highly porous and allow air to move through them easily. Unlike other mattresses, its presence of open-cell structures works to prevent heat from being trapped within the mattress, making it a great option for a tropical country like Singapore and hot sleepers. 

5. Durable

Not only are latex mattresses soft and comfortable, but they are also extremely durable and resilient. With the resiliency of natural rubber, latex mattresses can last for years without sagging or losing their original shape, giving you peace of mind knowing your investment will last for a long time. In general, you can expect to get up to 10 years of use out of a quality latex mattress, and it could even last longer if you take proper care of it.
