Generally, pillows should be changed every two to three years for hygiene reasons. Latex pillows are more durable than other types (polyester, for example), maintaining support for longer without a reduction in comfort.
A latex mattress offers outstanding support far more superior than other types of mattresses. The latex molecule acts like a microscopic spring. Sleeping on a Sofzsleep® mattress is like being supported by millions of little springs – for every part of your body. Due to the absence of interconnected springs, latex mattresses reduce the likelihood of one sleeping partner disturbing the other. Movement on one side of the mattress does not result in any movement on the other side, so no one is disturbed by any unwanted motion.
Sofzsleep® latex components and mattress fabric are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified. This is the strictest certification and ensures that they comply with health standard and are safe even for babies. Sofzsleep guarantees that its mattresses comply with the European Eco-label Standard for latex mattresses as described by the EC-Directive 2002/740/EC of September 3, 2002.
The natural elasticity of latex makes this material an extremely ideal one for use in making mattress. It is highly resilient and maintains its shape and consistency for many, many years. Latex has an open cell structure made up of millions of tiny interconnecting microscopic cells. Our movement ventilates the mattress and gets rid of moisture providing an optimal sleep environment. This ensures a safe, cool and healthy sleep environment.
Dust Mite Resistant
The natural antibiotic properties of latex and its open cell structure and excellent ventilation make it less habitable for dust mites and microbes. Hence, it provides a clean and healthy sleep environment, an ideal choice for people sensitive to allergens. Latex has natural anti-microbial properties. Some of the best benefits of latex include mould and mildew resistant, antimicrobial, and resistant to fungus. This ensures an allergen and toxic-free sleeping environment, resulting in a healthier sleep.
Non Toxic & No EMF
Sofzlseep metal-free mattress is the safest choice against electromagnetic radiation (EMF). EMF may cause restless sleeping and other adverse effects such as lower immune systems, concentration difficulty, headaches, etc. We share your concern that toxic chemicals may cause a lot of harm to us. That is why we insist on using only premium latex that is thoroughly washed, processed and tested to comply with the OekoTex Standard 100.
All Sofzsleep products are certified to be non-toxic and free from formaldehyde, Polybrominated Diphenel Ethers (PDBEs), chemical flame retardants, organic tin compound and other toxic chemicals.

Where does Sofzsleep Latex come from?
We acquire our latex from premium grade sap sourced from South-East Asian rubber plantations.
Where are Sofzsleep products made?
Our manufacturing plant is in Belgium, our principal latex supplier is Latexco. Premium grade sap from specially selected rubber plantations are sent directly to our factory in Belgium.
How are Sofzsleep mattresses made?
Upon arrival, the raw rubber sap is mixed into a compound. Compressed air is added to the compound to work it into a foam. The desired mold is filled with the latex foam by robotic automation to obtain an even distribution of the latex in the mold. The mold closes and enters a vulcanization oven. The form is then “baked” at 100 degrees centigrade to solidify into our Core. The finished Core is thoroughly washed to remove any residue and rigorously dried to remove all moisture. Consistency, firmness, visual and weight inspections ensue in our quality control process. Approved products are sent to our Asian assembly plant for cutting and finishing to various sizes.
What are the advantages of a latex mattress?
Among many of its other positive traits, latex as a material is primarily anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and excellent at body heat management.
Latex is ideal for allergy sufferers. It is naturally hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant and antimicrobial, inhibiting the growth of bacteria, mould and mildew which are contributors to asthma and pulmonary function allergies. No artificial or chemical materials are added to provide these benefits.
What are some of the certifications awarded to Sofzsleep?
Our products are rigorously benchmarked internationally, assuring you bedding products of the highest standards. Sofzsleep latex components and mattress fabric are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified. This is the strictest certification and ensures that they comply with health standard and are safe even for babies. Our products also conform to the EuroLatex Eco Standard, which defines the maximum acceptable limits of substances considered harmful to health.
Sofzsleep latex pillow and Bamboo cover have also been tested by Intertek, a global renowned laboratory. They were certified to be free from formaldehyde, organic tin, azo dyes, Nonylphenol (NP) and Nonylphenol Ethoxylates (NPEO) – CNS15290. Our products have also been awarded the LGA, thus ensuring that our mattresses excel in both durability and elasticity and comply with the durability criteria for the award of the Ecolabel according to the European guideline (2002/740/EC).

I’ve heard of Dunlop and Talalay Latex, what are the differences?
Traditionally, the Dunlop process has been in use to manufacture latex products since 1929. The viscous rubber serum is baked in steam after being frothed and molded. The process naturally causes heavier particles to sink to the bottom of the mold, resulting in the bottom-side of the mattress to be firmer than the top.
In contrast, the Talalay process has a couple of added steps. Prior to the vulcanization process, the mold is vacuum sealed and rapidly frozen. This creates an environment where the sediments and particles within the mold are more consistently distributed, resulting in a more consistent cell structure from top to bottom and edge to edge.
Between a Dunlop and Talalay mattress, which is better?
The reality is that neither is superior to the other. They are merely different manufacturing methods. However, generally speaking, a Dunlop mattress tend to be denser producing a slightly firmer experience as opposed to the softer and more subtle Talalay mattress.
Price wise, the cost of a Talalay mattress is often greater than that of a Dunlop mattress because of the additional steps taken during the manufacturing process.
Do I need to flip a latex mattress?
Your bed loves you, and you know that! An occasional flip or rotation every 6 months can give your mattress’ lifespan a boost. Love it back by flipping or rotating it so it can keep loving you for many years more.
Are all bamboo fabric the same?
While you are shopping for mattresses, you will see many brands who use Bamboo fabric for their mattress cover. Are all Bamboo fabric the same? The answer is an absolute no! Many fabric suppliers who use only 1 to 3% of Bamboo with the remaining 97 to 99% will claim that theirs is a Bamboo fabric. So, how can you tell the difference? It is actually quite hard for a layman but if you were to hold the fabric in your hand, the one with a higher content of Bamboo will weigh heavier than the one with only 3%. Also, a fabric with a high content of Bamboo feels much cooler to your touch than one which has a miniscule Bamboo content.
Sofzsleep’s Bamboo fabric is made with 43% bamboo, 57% polyester.
Why do Sofzsleep mattresses appear “thin”?
There is a visual trend among many manufacturers to produce “fatter” or thicker mattresses to appear more plush and impressive.
The appearance of a thick mattress may appear impressive but can be deceiving in terms of providing actual comfort and support. It is not unusual for mattress manufacturers to make their mattresses look extra plush by adding layers of oddball substances such as memory form, horse hair and even coconut husk. Thickness is often just a visual ploy designed to get people to think they’re buying a luxurious mattress when in actuality it could very well be questionable materials wrapped in a pretty quitted pattern. The rationale for sleeping on these anomalous materials for as long as 5 to 10 years is highly questionable.
It is best to listen to your body and find the bed experience that feels the most comfortable. For an average person with weight between 60-80kg, a 20-24cm mattress should have achieved above average for overall satisfaction. Latex mattresses are generally heavier. Latex mattress is best known for its optimal support and comfort. More importantly, health-certified latex products do not contain harmful substances, produce toxic emissions and can last for many years.
Are there any springs within a latex mattress?
Sofzsleep uses only 100% latex in our mattress. It is like sleeping on millions of interconnected “micro springs” that provide exceptional, contouring support and pressure relieving comfort. Sleeping on a Sofzsleep bedding will leave you feeling rejuvenated.
The latex core does not contain any other parts (metal springs, foams or other inserts). There is no risk of getting irradiated from the metallic springs. Our customers can easily open up the cover to see for themselves with our very special removable Bamboo and Coolmax® covers.
I think my mattress feels different from what I tried in the store.
Perhaps it is human nature to resist a change. Despite loving your new mattress in the store, you might not sleep better on it on the first night at home. Generally speaking, it usually takes a couple of days for your body to adjust on a new sleeping surface.
If the first night on a new mattress does not radically transform your sleep quality, we strongly suggest giving it a few more nights before completely giving in to buyer’s remorse. This is particularly important to bear in mind when you switch up from a conventional mattress to a latex mattress for the first time. It is also good to note that your initial experience with a latex mattress is likely to be “softer” in comparison to conventional mattresses.
Do I have to flip a latex mattress?
Compared to traditional mattresses, latex mattresses have a complex and dense cellular structure which makes it more lasting, maintaining a level of rigidity. The tensile strength of latex makes it is extremely resilient and much less likely to compress over time.
This is largely due to the “kick back” factor – try pushing your fist with a punching motion into a latex mattress and releasing; you’ll find the mattress bounces back and regains its shape almost immediately. However, in a case of individual preference, there is certainly no harm rotating or even flipping the mattress once every six months, some find it as habitual as fluffing pillows.
Are Sofzsleep latex mattresses suitable for a person with back problems?
Certainly. One of the beneficial properties of sleeping on a 100% pure latex mattress is that it is an incredibly fine balance of support without feeling excessively hard. It contours and molds to the shape of the sleeper’s body whilst reducing pressure exerting points. The experience is often described as “sleeping on millions of micro-springs”.
Are Sofzsleep latex mattresses suitable for children?
Yes, of course. Babies and young children have more body surface than body weight. When surrounding temperatures are higher than body temperatures, children and small body masses tend to gain heat faster than full-grown adults. Children and babies also have immature sweating mechanisms, inhibiting them from getting rid of excess heat in their bodies.
To address this, Sofzsleep mattress cores are paired with various breathable and temperature regulating fibre cover options. Our current ranges come with Bamboo and Coolmax® options that not only provide a plush feel, but also keep the body pleasantly cool and fresh.
How do I care for my latex mattress?
Do put the mattress on a new or supportive mattress base. An old foundation unit may not provide sufficient support. Do use a good cover to protect your mattress at all times to avoid stains.
If your mattress has a removable cover, use only a professional dry cleaning service to clean the cover. We recommend you to clean your mattress cover at least once a year.
Do carton and protect your mattress when moving. Ventilate your bedroom regularly so as to reduce humidity. Do replace your mattress every ten years, if it is used in a normal way.
How do I care for my latex pillow?
Keep the pillow clean with an additional pillow case. Washing of pillow is not recommended. If you really need to wash your pillow, please follow these instructions: Do not use any detergent or bleach.
Spot cleaning with water and press between towels to remove water. Hair dryer can be used to dry the pillow further. Do not spin or tumble dry. Do not expose latex to direct sunlight.
