Foam mattresses include Gel memory foam, Certi-pur Memory Foam, Charcoal memory foam, Bamboo memory foam and Latex foam.
Gel Memory Foam
Gel mattresses were designed to counter heat retention that is associated with standard memory foam mattresses by lowering temperatures so users can sleep more comfortably. Gel mattresses have all the properties of memory foam with the added benefit of cooling gel beads. These tiny beads bond with the foam, allowing more airflow to regulate the mattress temperature throughout the night. In addition, the gel beads give the foam more strength which translates into sinking in the bed less deeply.
CertiPUR Memory Foam
The CertiPUR-US® program is a voluntary testing, analysis and certification program for flexible polyurethane foam used as a cushioning material in home furnishings such as adult mattresses, crib mattresses, upholstered furniture, pillows and some accessory comfort products. Certified flexible polyurethane foams have been independently laboratory tested and certified to be: - Made without ozone depleters- Made without PBDE flame retardants- Made without mercury, lead and other heavy metals- Made without formaldehyde- Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission- Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million)
Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing and most prolific plants, growing as much as three and a half feet in a single day. Naturally organic, and not requiring the use of pesticides, bamboo is an excellent choice for many consumer applications, including the production of high-quality memory foam. By utilizing bamboo to create active charcoal, MLILY infuses bamboo into visco-elastic memory foam. This charcoal is anti-microbial, and odor absorbing. And with thousands of tiny micro-pores, bamboo infused memory foam is cooler and more breathable than traditional memory foam.
Latex Rubber Foam (Talalay and Dunlop)
Latex mattresses have been available for over 70 years. While new to most of us in North America, natural latex foam is a proven performer with several fantastic advantages. Latex foam is an excellent choice for those seeking a durable, supportive sleep surface. Latex foam conforms properly to body shape, providing correct spinal alignment. Natural latex rubber is a polymer of isoprene, and is sourced from the milk of the rubber tree. Typically, a few percent of other materials, such as proteins, fatty acids, resins, and inorganic materials are found in high-quality natural rubber.
