Latex vs Memory Foam

The Introduction of Memory Foam

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 Debuts as Memory Foam Alternative

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.
