Latex Mattress India: Firmness, Price, Thickness, Pros, and Cons

On a hunt to buy a new mattress but overwhelmed after seeing the myriad of options available out there? Reading about a latex mattress India everywhere but still confused if it is worth purchasing or just over-hyped? Well, this article will take you through all the important things you need to know about a latex mattress.

Latex Mattress India: How is it Made?


Since a 100% natural latex mattress is the safest type of latex mattress, we are only going to focus on how it is made and will not consider the manufacturing of a synthetic or blended latex mattress. So, wherever you see me talk about a latex mattress, please understand that I am only addressing a 100% natural latex mattress.

A latex mattress is made by using the white, milky sap derived from the Rubber tree by tapping it and not harming the entire tree in any way. The latex sap is hygienically collected and taken into the factories for processing it into latex foam. A latex mattress can be made using two general methods viz. the Talalay Method and the Dunlop Method.

Although the Dunlop Method is known to be a much simpler process, both ways follow a common procedure with slight variations in their key steps. At first, latex is collected – usually at night or early in the morning to prevent its coagulation, or else the latex foam is hardened. Hence, the sap is immediately transferred into large airtight buckets as soon as the collection is complete.

The sap is then processed to be converted into a thick, foamy, and bouncy paste using any of the methods listed above. Basically, the liquid latex is first sieved to remove any unwanted particles and later transferred into a mold then to be solidified in an oven. Once a huge block of latex is obtained, it is properly washed and dried to remove all the excess moisture.

Hygiene and safety are the main concern for a reliable mattress brand while manufacturing the mattress. No matter which way is used, the latex mattress India is ensured to be safe, hypoallergenic, breathable, supportive, and comfortable.

The Firmness of a Latex Mattress

Although this usually depends from brand to brand, a latex mattress is generally medium-firm to provide adequate back support and comfort to the sleeper. Many mattress brands produce dual-sided latex mattresses to keep one side very soft and the other one quite firm to let the sleepers flip the mattress as per their desires. However, I sleep on the Morning Owl latex mattress and my mattress is medium firm with an ILD of around 30 which feels great – neither too soft nor too firm.

How Thick is a Latex Mattress?

If you research the top latex mattress manufacturers in India, you can find a latex mattress in three thickness options viz. four inches, six inches, and eight inches. However, generally – all the latex mattresses are six inches thick, which is also the recommended thickness for a normal weighing adult by most medical professionals.
