Advantages of Natural Latex

Natural latex is
five times denser than polyurethane foam. You’ve probably heard the
message “you should replace your mattress every eight years.” This
message is only true for beds containing polyurethane foam, which
accounts for roughly 90% of all mattresses manufactured worldwide.
Natural latex will last twice as long, in fact, it will last longer than
any other component on the market. While it will initially cost more
than a mattress with polyurethane foam, in the long run, natural latex
mattresses are one of the most cost effective beds available.

The manufacturing processes that create natural latex cause a cell
structure that can easily contour, quickly return to its original form,
and continue to do so for an incredibly long time even with extended
Natural latex foam was
introduced over 70 years ago, and since then, no synthetic foam has
been able to emulate it perfectly. The unique properties of latex are
something that set it apart from other mattress materials.

Synthetic foams all suffer from the same trade-off dilemma. When
creating a synthetic foam the more contouring you make the foam, the
harder it is to spring back to its original form. The closer you get to
making it retain its original form, the less contouring it becomes.

Latex foam has naturally occurring features that do not suffer from
this trade-off. This property has proven nearly impossible to emulate.

Healthy Sleep and Proper Support

During the process of making latex foam, the latex is washed to
remove allergens and impurities. This process makes the latex
anti-bacterial, hypoallergenic, and dust mite resistant. This washing
process also makes latex mattresses helpful for allergy sufferers.

latex mattress composed
of a series of 3″ layers prevents spine depression while still
providing an unparalleled comfort range. Having a softer layer on top
and a firmer layer underneath creates an enveloping effect that also
provides excellent lumbar support.

The flexibility of natural latex comes from its unique cell
structure; it helps envelop shoulders and hips ensuring relief and
proper spinal alignment. Its flexibility also contributes to its
movement absorbing properties. This flexibility helps promote immobility
while sleeping and serves to reduce the amount of motion transfer to
your sleeping partner.

Sleep EZ Latex Mattresses

Here at Sleep EZ, we build our mattresses out of 3″
natural latex layers, and a zippered mattress cover.
Unlike most of our competitors, this allows you to customize the
mattress after purchase. From support layers in the bottom to the
comfort layers on the top. This rare customizability allows you to build
