About the Gels Used in Mattress Construction
Gel-infused foam mattresses are eco-friendly and safe for all members of your family. Most gels are eucalyptus-based, so they are:
Because the gel-infused foam is sealed by the protective cover, even individuals with a sensitivity or allergy to eucalyptus can enjoy the benefits of a gel-infused mattress without any adverse effects.
How Gel Enhances Mattress Comfort and Support
Gel-infused foam mattresses enhance comfort by helping sleepers regulate their body temperatures. The gel absorbs heat and distributes it throughout the foam, preventing the development of heat pockets that raise your body temperature and disturb your sleep.
Gel-infused foam also enhances support. By filling spaces between foam cells, the gel makes the foam more supportive without compromising the memory foam’s ability to contour to your body.
Is a Gel-Infused Mattress Right for You?
Gel mattresses may be the ideal mattress choice for individuals who “sleep hot,” even if your bed partner does not. The gel simply absorbs and redistributes heat more evenly; it does not pull heat from the body, so those who sleep cool will not feel uncomfortably cold throughout the night.
Gel-infused memory foam is suitable for nearly every body type and sleep position. As a result, Kingsdown® includes cooling gel in all of its mattress lines—Crown Imperial, Passions and Sleep to Live—and Spring Air uses gel-infused foam in its Cool Reflections line. That means finding the right mattress comes down to whether your body needs innerspring support in addition to foam (i.e. a hybrid mattress) or if an all-foam mattress is the right fit. Our exclusive bedMATCH™ system can help.
