The Yogabed 10" Mattress is the only mattress model made and sold by Yogabed, one of the newest mattress manufacturers (as of mid-2015), a direct-to-consumer company.
The Yogabed is the result of collaboration between a team of mattress manufacturing veterans and an engineering group. They wanted a mattress with the characteristics of both latex and memory foam. It would have the push back that latex has, but be suitable for sleepers with latex allergies. It would also have the give of memory foam, but without the heat build-up. The result is what Yogabed calls the Yoga Comfort System. Another recent innovation by a new company, the Casper Mattress by Casper Sleep, works toward the same support properties, but has latex.
The 10-inch Yogabed is a four-layer all-foam mattress. From the bottom, these are the Support Base (1"), the support core (6"), YogaGel™ (2") and Yoga Instant Response Foam™ (1"). Yogabed says, "Combined, these elements work together to replenish the body, quiet the mind and nourish the soul."
Yogabed calls the Yoga Instant Response Foam™ a "highly reactionary foam." The way it is described, it has the support properties of latex, but latex (rubber tree sap) is not an ingredient. The reason? Even though cured latex is thoroughly washed, it may have some residual latex protein which could trigger an allergic reaction. Though it is not explicitly said, it sounds like 100% synthetic rubber foam. This 1" top layer is to keep the sleeper from sinking in too far while still experiencing the conformity of the memory foam beneath.
YogaGel is memory foam with gel or its functional equivalent. It has the conforming proerties of memory foam. It is heat-conductive for dissipation of accumulated heat. And it is vertically ventilated with ¼" pores spaced 2" apart. Conformity distributes support evenly to relieve large body parts (like hips) from pressure and fully support recessed parts (like the lumbar).
This 6" support core is made of high-density, very firm support foam. Its function is underlying support for the upper layers and the sleeper. It is structured to be breathable for cooling and freshness. Yogabed says it has 95% better airflow than traditional memory foam (most current memory foams are cooler and more breathable than the original version).
This ultra firm base pad protects all the other foams, both in use and in handling.
Yogabed™ offers a pro-rated 10 year warranty. Not available in retail stores, it is sold online or by phone directly to the customers. Each Yogabed comes with two Yogabed pillows (one with Twin size).
