What is a latex mattress topper?
A latex mattress topper is made from a foam like material. Latex mattress toppers can be made from either synthetic, natural or a combination of both types of latex. Latex mattress toppers spring back to shape like foam.
You can also buy graphite latex mattress toppers which contain latex mixed with graphite which makes it naturally fire retardant without any of the chemicals needed to pass British fire standards.
To use, simply place the topper on top of your existing mattress beneath a sheet or mattress protector.
Are Latex mattress toppers any good?

Purchasing a topper is a cheaper way to improve any mattress rather than buying a new one. Placing our firm graphite latex mattress topper on your existing mattress will firm it up. A firm mattress is recommended by health professionals for a bad back.
What are the benefits of graphite latex?
Graphite latex mattress toppers are grey in appearance instead of the usual cream. The graphite is mixed with the latex to make the material fire retardant (FR) without the need for any FR chemicals.
Note: it is required by British law for your mattress topper to meet British fire standards.
Graphite latex is cool to touch and our topper has in built cooling channels to allow airflow.
We also hand make a graphite latex pillow that is height adjustable.
