Talalay Latex: The Key to Your Dream Night's Sleep

The luxury of a good night's sleep can affect your quality of life. Even if you had an adequate amount of sleep, it won't be enough if your bed isn't comfortable and supportive enough to provide you with a restful nights in REM.

Most people overlook how important their mattress is to their overall well-being. After all, it's easy to forget how much you use your mattress when it's same routine day in and out. However, a quality mattress will transform your sleep experience beyond your wildest dreams.

One of the best options available today for luxurious mattress comfort is Talalay Latex. It is increasingly popular among consumers who demand the best sleep experience because of its exceptional comfort, breathability and durability.

But what makes Talalay latex so superior? And why should you make the switch?

What is a latex topper or mattress?

A latex topper or mattress is made of latex derived from rubber tree sap. It comes in both blended natural and all natural depending on the type.

There are predominantly two types of Latex either Dunlop or Talalay. Both are made from natural materials but differ in how they are manufactured.

Dunlop, which is denser and heavier, is made with a simpler process that involves pouring the latex into moulds. On the other hand, Talalay is lighter and more breathable because of its more complex manufacturing process. Talalay is whipped and utilizes carbon dioxide to freeze microscopic air pockets and it is suspended with in a vacuum chamber of the mould before it is vulcanised.

How does Talalay Latex feel?

Talalay Latex is made up of billions of tiny air-filled cells that work together to give a springy and resilient feel. This differs from a traditional foam and memory foam, as it will have a bit more spring and is fast acting and easier to move on than memory foam.

This type of comfort layer has a unique ‘lively’ feel that makes it comfortable for all types of sleepers. It provides a delicate yet supportive cradle to the body while still allowing for movement, making it the perfect option for individuals who experience joint and muscle pain. It also comes in a variety of firmness levels to accommodate different body sizes and preferences.

Five benefits of Talalay latex

Known for as the Earth’s most perfect sleep material, Talalay latex is naturally elastic and conforming, providing an ultra-plush feel and superior support. If you look at any High End or Luxury mattress it will more than likely have Talalay Latex as one of the materials. If you know anyone in the industry who really knows there stuff that Talalay Latex is the best.

1. Pressure-relieving

The comfort of a Talalay latex mattress comes from its ability to contour your body. This feature creates an environment where pressure points don't build up, especially in the hip and shoulder areas which can often cause discomfort.

2. Hypoallergenic

Made from natural materials, Talalay latex is hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant, making it the best choice for allergy sufferers. It also contains little to no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), usually associated with respiratory and skin irritations. Some people are allergic to Latex but they are normally allergic to latex proteins which are normally washed out of Latex Foams. The vast majority of people have no Latex allergies.

3. Durable

Talalay latex is one of the most durable mattress materials available on the market, so you won't have to worry about replacing it after a few years. It's highly resistant to wear and tear, and with proper care and maintenance. Since Latex is denser than regular foams it lasts longer. If you can flip and rotate your latex you will also get better durability.

4. Breathable

Unlike traditional memory foam mattresses, which tend to trap heat, Talalay latex is extremely breathable thanks to its open-cell structure. This property helps keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night by allowing air to circulate more freely within the mattress. Latex quite often has holes as part of the manufacturing process and this will help increase air flow as well. 

5. Eco-friendly

Luxury mattresses don't have to come at the cost of the environment. Talalay latex is derived from the sap of rubber trees, so it's free from harmful chemicals that contribute to air or water pollution. Plus, it's also biodegradable, so you can comfortably rest knowing it won't end up in a landfill for years.
