Are you on the hunt for a new mattress? Perhaps you are trying to take advantage of some last-minute GSS deals? As you browse through the various bed and mattress sales online, you may be spoilt for choice as you scrutinise the numerous options available to you. However, if you are unsure of which mattress material to go for, why not consider something unique like a latex mattress?

You may be unfamiliar with the use of latex in mattresses. However, this material is becoming increasingly popular due to its comfort and eco-friendliness. Moreover, latex is favoured for its elasticity and durability, amidst many other benefits. Let us share four compelling reasons why you should purchase a latex mattress.

1. Latex mattresses are highly durable.

Latex mattresses are more durable than other mattresses. A typical mattress’s lifespan could be between 5 to 7 years, while a blended latex mattress can last up to 10 years. All-natural latex mattresses typically have the longest lifespan, ensuring you get 12 to 20 years of quality use before it’s time to replace them. Therefore, when you purchase a latex mattress, you are generating less waste since you will not be changing your bed so often.

The wire coils in a regular spring mattress will eventually sag and weaken. Even memory foam mattresses are susceptible to wear and tear as the foam layers mould around your body over time. Once they become too soft, they may not be able to provide adequate support when you sleep. In contrast, latex is resilient and highly durable, just like rubber. Its high tensile strength means it can withstand high amounts of pressure and force over an extended period before wearing down.

2. Latex mattresses are eco-friendly.

The greater longevity afforded by your new latex mattress translates to lesser wastage and disposal as you need not change your mattress as frequently as you used to. Additionally, the production process of a latex mattress is more environmentally friendly. Pará rubber trees can live for up to 100 years even when they are tapped for natural latex. These trees remain unharmed throughout the harvesting process. Higher demand for latex also encourages the continuous planting of new rubber trees, making the entire process sustainable.

Organic latex mattresses also use natural flame retardants, unlike other mattresses, which makes them eco-friendlier. If these mattresses containing flame-retardant chemicals are not correctly disposed of, waterways and marine life will suffer from the toxic compounds contained within.

3. Latex mattresses offer pain relief.

When people shop for mattresses, they often consider a memory foam mattress for its strong support. It is advertised as one of the most effective mattresses for pain relief as it promotes proper spinal alignment. It also cradles the body’s pressure points and provides support to the body.

A latex mattress goes even further by lifting the body instead of sinking beneath the sleeper’s body weight. This responsive support feels more buoyant than that of a memory foam’s contour support. Latex is also highly elastic, and it can reduce pain by conforming to the spine’s natural alignment without compromising support.

At Four Star, our DETENSE | ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™ mattress contains natural latex that supports the curvature of your spine, ensuring good pressure distribution. Having good support is crucial as it improves blood circulation and promotes pain relief, leading to better sleep during your bedtime. In addition, you can maximise the benefits of this mattress by pairing it with a customised storage bed frame made with a German Hydraulic lift system that enables you to easily access your belongings without much hassle while simultaneously reducing clutter.

4. Latex mattresses ensure cooler sleep

It is a challenge to fall asleep sometimes, given Singapore’s humid climate. You are unlikely to drift off into a deep slumber when you are feeling warm and uncomfortable. If you experience this situation more often than not, then a latex mattress may be ideal for you.

The organic open-cell structure of latex increases airflow, making the mattress more breathable. Furthermore, a latex mattress is punctured with small pinholes to create more openings for heat and air to escape. Both factors lead to a decrease in the overall temperature of the bed, ensuring a cooler sleeping surface and a more comfortable sleep.


As you shop for the perfect mattress, don’t discount the benefits of a latex mattress. While they may be pricey, they also possess many benefits that will give you the best bang for your buck. A latex mattress may turn out to be one of the best purchases you make as it can help you achieve improved sleep and better health.
