Memory foam mattresses were introduced to the North American market in the 1990s, providing a popular alternative to the traditional innerspring mattresses that represented a large majority of the mattress market at this point in time.
While memory foam mattresses offered an improvement over the stiffness and creaking widely experienced with innerspring mattress varieties, there were some drawbacks. Consumers reported that memory foam mattresses lost their resiliency and supportive qualities over time, causing back and neck pain. They also reported that the memory foam mattresses would get uncomfortably warm throughout the night – a factor caused by the viscous properties of polyurethane foam, which absorbs and retains natural body heat.
Latex mattresses have since become a popular alternative for those seeking the supportive properties of innerspring mattresses, with the comfort of memory foam – without the drawbacks. The viscoelastic makeup and cellular structure of latex mattresses offer a long list of benefits over memory foam mattresses, providing a refreshing sleep experience, with quality support and long-lasting durability, unmatched in the marketplace.
Formeflex has honed the benefits of latex, using organic latex and bio foam to create a supremely comfortable, orthopaedic mattress that is also chemical-free – and it lasts up to 20 years! Experience the comfort and support of an organic latex mattress with Formeflex.
The Formeflex organic latex mattress is the foremost chemical-free mattress on the market. Constructed using only certipur-us bio foam and organic latex, each step of Formeflex’s manufacturing and treatment is processed according to Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) and USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).
Memory foam mattresses are often treated with chemicals such as silicone, phosphates, boric acid, melamine and polyvinylidene chloride – all of which have adverse effects on air quality and health through the process of chemical off-gassing. Formeflex’s organic latex mattress eliminates the unpleasant odor and health concerns caused by off-gassing.
Memory foam is a temperature sensitive material that reacts to its external environment; it gets firmer when it’s cold, and softer when it’s hot. This heat-retaining property of memory foam can cause an uncomfortably warm sleep, especially for those residing in climates that experience warm, humid temperatures.
The Formeflex organic latex mattress has a unique self-ventilating temperature control structure that prevents heat retention and actually wicks away moisture. This allows for better dispersed body heat and quick dissipation of any perspiration or moisture experienced as you sleep, keeping your body comfortable and cool all night long.
Latex mattresses experience an extremely impressive lifespan when compared to other mattresses on the market – up to 20 years! With a memory foam mattress’ lifespan averaging a maximum of 8 years, latex mattresses offer a much better investment for your money, lasting nearly 3x longer.
It is the unique viscoelastic properties of latex mattresses that allow them to better maintain their shape and resiliency over a longer period of time. Memory foam is a dense, viscous material that loses its ability to return to its original shape when compressed over a long duration. When this happens, the mattress no longer provides the orthopedic support required for a comfortable, healthy sleep.
Memory foam and latex mattresses are sought-after for their unique molding properties that provide spinal and neck support without causing undue stress on painful pressure points, which can result in aches and pains after a nights’ sleep.
Memory foam mattresses are constructed of polyurethane foam, which has viscous properties that allow the material to mold perfectly to the curves and contours of each unique body. However, without adequate long-lasting elasticity, these properties result in experiencing the feeling of sinking as you lay to rest. On the other hand, organic latex mattresses provide the optimal level of firmness required for effective orthopedic support, while still providing the viscoelastic properties that allow the mattress to mold to the contours of the body for perfect, custom-fit comfort.
The properties in the Formeflex organic latex mattress actually absorb shock and isolate motion better than memory foam mattresses. The cellular nature of latex allows micro structures to adapt to movement and pressure without transferring motion across the whole surface area. These properties make latex mattresses one of the best options for a more comfortable, undisturbed sleep for partners.
The viscoelastic properties of latex also offer superior resiliency, meaning they keep their shape over time – much longer then memory foam mattresses. With a higher density and short-lived elasticity, memory foam mattresses have a tendency to become compressed and lose their adaptive, molding functionality over time, making latex mattresses a better investment for long-term comfort and support.
