Why We Recommend Talalay


The benefits of a good night’s sleep are well known. Waking up rested is scientifically proven to be beneficial to your physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. That is why we are so passionate about helping people achieve sleep health.

People will go to great lengths to get a good sleep. They will buy blackout curtains, sleep masks, white noise machines, essential oils, sleepy time teas and so on. But one thing often overlooked is the quality of mattress. Investing in a quality mattress might be the missing key to good sleep.

There is a type of mattress that industry insiders know about, and that is making rounds and gaining popularity among those searching for good sleep. It’s called Talalay, and it is revolutionary in sleep health. We’d like to take this time to explain why we recommend Talalay mattresses to people who are looking to achieve high quality sleep health.

What is Talalay and why should you be sleeping on it?

Talalay was invented by the Talalay brothers, Leon, Joseph and Anselm, in the early part of the twentieth century, and was later commercialized in the 1940s. Talalay describes the process of producing molded pieces of latex foam rubber. It works when naturally occurring rubber latex is poured into a closed mold, from which all the oxygen is removed. Then carbon dioxide is introduced and the rubber is cured with heat.

It is this process that is used to make pure rubber latex Talalay mattresses, pillows and mattress toppers.

So, why should you be sleeping on it?

Talalay latex mattresses proved a perfect balance of both density and give. This means that while you sleep, the mattress forms to your body to provide relief, while at the same time giving your body the support it needs to relax and be comfortable. After waking from a night’s sleep on a Talalay mattress, your body will not be suffering from aches and pains that result from a mattress that is either too soft or too firm.

There are other benefits, too. Most mattresses are made from a combination of synthetic fibres that are doused in chemicals and flame retardants. These mattresses can cause a person to have an uncomfortable sleep by raising a person’s core temperature overnight or setting off respiratory sensitivities.

A Talalay mattress on the other hand is completely made from natural rubber derived from the rubber tree, not a synthetic fiber made from petroleum. It is also made with a breathable design and cell structure that provides a temperature neutral environment. Talalay Latex rubber is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. This means that it doesn’t come sprayed with chemicals and that it will naturally be resistant to things like mites, fungus and mould. Knowing this provides peace of mind that you are getting the best and healthiest sleep possible.

Another bonus is that unlike other mattresses, Talalay Latex is also extremely durable and will outlast almost any other mattress on the market. Most mattresses need replacing after seven to ten years. But because Talalay latex is vulcanized, it is the most resilient material available in a mattress.

Finally, Talalay latex allows for people to sleep deeper and with less interruption. That’s because the material is a fast response material so that when you move, the rubber immediately responds to your new position. Whether you sleep with a partner or not, Talalay mattresses isolate your movements, ensuring you have a deeper, uninterrupted sleep.

We firmly believe that the organic Talalay mattresses is superior to most other mattresses on the market today. We’ve recommended this incredible mattress to countless people who were looking to solve their sleep problems. At the end of the day, an investment into a mattress that is designed to help you sleep deeply and by providing your body with the support it needs so that you wake up feeling fresh and wonderful is worth every penny.
