Memory foam: this is a foam that softens when in contact with the body’s heat to perfectly follow the contours of the sleeper’s body and returns to its original shape with each movement.

When choosing a mattress, it is important to consider the height/weight ratio when choosing the right density for you: the bigger you are, the heavier you weigh, the more firm density you have to choose, while if you are small and light you can choose a soft density mattress.
In any case when choosing a new mattress, make sure you choose a mattress without chemical treatment, banish anti-flame, anti-mite, anti-bacterial treatments,... By choosing natural materials you will benefit from optimal natural protection without chemicals and you can enjoy a 100% natural sleep.
