What is the difference between Dunlop and Talalay latex?
We offer two types of latex in our organic mattresses: Dunlop and Talalay. The main differences between the two are certifications and feel.
The Dunlop latex we use meets the requirements of GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard). It’s an overall denser and firmer latex than Talalay, offering stable support.
Talalay latex is Cradle to Cradle Gold and FSC-certified. It’s known for having a plush and luxurious feel that is excellent at pressure point relief. We usually recommend at least one layer of Talalay latex for side sleepers.
Savvy Rest is the only mattress company in the world with GOTS-certified organic mattresses containing Talalay latex.
When choosing your Savvy Rest configuration, you can opt for all Dunlop, all Talalay, or a combination of the two.
What certifications do you have?
You can find a full list of our certifications, along with proof of certification, here.
Is the Talalay in your organic mattresses GOLS certified?
No, there is currently no Talalay latex manufacturer that offers GOLS-certified Talalay. Our Talalay latex is Cradle to Cradle Gold and FSC-certified. It has also met testing requirements for GreenGuard Gold.
Does a Savvy Rest mattress last?
Yes. Longevity is just as important as safety when it comes to sourcing our organic materials.
Besides toxic off-gassing, a major difference between natural latex and memory foam is that memory foam mattresses retain your body heat which allows the mattress to conform to your body’s curves. Over time, the memory foam will have trouble bouncing back, leading to significant dips and sags.
Our latex mattresses are built to last and come with a 20-year limited warranty (the Earthspring has a 10-year limited warranty).
Cheaper mattresses are not designed with longevity in mind. We do not believe you should have to buy a new mattress every five years. It should be around for the long run.
How is Savvy Rest different from other mattress companies?
Besides offering completely GOTS-certified and customizable natural latex mattresses, we’re also both a B Corp and an employee-owned company.
What is a B Corp?
Our B Corp certification means that our business focuses on more than just profit. We also care about positively impacting our community and producing products that are natural and safe for the home (and the planet).
We’ve joined forces with local women’s shelters and created the Safe Sleep Pillow program. Savvy Rest has donated almost 3,000 pillows to women who have escaped dangerous home situations and are looking for a safe space before continuing their journey. After leaving the shelter, they can take the pillow with them. We know a pillow can’t save the world but we hope it brings comfort and healthy sleep to these brave women.
As mentioned, Savvy Rest is an employee-owned company, meaning everyone shares in the company’s success.
It didn’t feel right to have only one person benefit from a company’s growth when a company’s success is to due a collaborative effort. All our departments are working hard to introduce the best organic products, to help customers, and to ship all the Savvy goodies to your door.
Every person and voice matters at Savvy Rest so participating in the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) made sense.
