What Are the Benefits of Talalay?
We use Cradle to Cradle Gold-certified Vita Talalay latex in our mattresses, toppers, pillows, and sofas. This certification means it has met rigorous standards of material purity and environmentally-friendly manufacturing practices.
This soft natural Talalay latex topper adds a luxuriously plush feel to your mattress. Talalay is especially wonderful for side sleepers since it's known for gently cradling the hips and relieving pressure.
If you feel your mattress is too firm, or you're someone who experiences shoulder or hip pain, adding the Vitality to your sleep experience can make all the difference.
How Does Talalay Latex Compare to Memory Foam?
Talalay latex has that same responsive feel as memory foam but without the synthetic materials and harmful off-gassing.
Talalay is also more breathable and durable than memory foam.
Memory foam retains your body heat. It is this chemical reaction that allows the material to move and conform to the shape of your body. There are two major issues with this:
(1) It can cause you to overheat, and
(2) Eventually, memory foam will not spring back to its original state, causing uncomfortable dips in your mattress.
