What is Talalay Latex?


It seems like there is a new invention every day claiming to help people sleep better. It’s a large market to target, if you are one of the millions of people who have a hard time sleeping at night, you will probably try almost anything to get a good night’s rest. A good sleep goes a long way in a person’s health and wellbeing and a bad sleep can have disastrous results, especially if it is a reoccurring condition.

Your mattress is a key component to your overall health, how comfortable you are when you are trying to fall asleep and how supported you are while you sleep will have repercussions that affect not only your sleep, but your happiness and health the following day, too. An investment in a high quality mattress is an investment in health, and we’d like to tell you about a new kind of mattress, one that is made from Talalay Latex.

Before we get into the benefits of sleeping on a latex mattress, let’s first discuss how it’s made. First, naturally occurring liquid rubber is whipped into a foam and poured into a mold that contains rods that go through the rubber. The mold is then vacuumed to remove air pockets and to distribute the liquid rubber evenly through the mold.
The rubber is then frozen and the consistency is locked in. Talalay latex is only made in two facilities in the world, one in Connecticut, the other in the Netherlands.

Talalay products come in the form of mattresses, mattress toppers and pillows. But how, you might be wondering, would a latex mattress improve my sleep?

For one, Talalay Latex mattresses are derived from completely natural ingredients. You might be surprised to discover that most mattresses adhesives contain a variety of toxic chemicals. We spend a third of our lives in bed so it’s best to create a safe and clean environment.

Talalay Latex mattresses also work because it supports your body while you sleep, which allows your body to relax its muscles and achieve a state of relaxation. Some mattresses or mattress toppers have a “sinking in” feeling as the material absorbs the weight of you body as the night goes on. With a latex mattress, there is a sense of sleeping “on” rather than “in”. The benefit to this is that your body is supported and since Talalay Latex rubber is a two dimensional material, it is both supportive by being uplifting while at the same time being pressure relieving.

Talalay Latex rubber is also a fast response material which means if you are a restless sleeper or someone who tosses and turns, the mattress immediately responds to your new position. In other words, it does not leave an imprint of your body every time you move. It also isolates your movements so that your partner won’t notice if you’ve been rolling around all night.

There are other benefits to Natural Talalay Latex, like that it is made from 100 percent naturally occurring rubber and has no synthetic, petroleum based fibres in it. It is also naturally breathable so you don’t overheat at night; it is mould and mildew resistant which could be beneficial if you have allergies. It is also resistant to dust mites and is naturally antibacterial and antifungal. And since it is made of rubber, it is resilient and will usually last two to three times longer than a normal mattress.
