Summer has finally arrived! Tomorrow is the solstice, last Friday we had our yearly “heat wave”, or heat hump day if you live in Devon and Tesco is officially out of ice lollies.
But with the warmer weather comes high night temperatures. At Cottonsafe® Natural Mattress we often receive messages from potential customers about night sweating, poor sleep and waking tired. Our latest blog explains how a Cottonsafe® mattress keeps you cool at night.
Your body’s ability to keep itself warm or cool down can make a significant difference in your sleep quality. As your body prepares itself for sleep your body temperature begins to cool down – with your body and brain cooling during non-rapid eye movement sleep and then beginning to warm again when transitioning to REM sleep. This is known as Thermoregulation and it is vital to how well you sleep at night.
Environmental heat can disturb this balance between sleep and body temperature and with disrupted sleep you’ll experience more daytime sleepiness or exhaustion, which impacts your quality of life.
According to experts, the ideal sleeping temperature is between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius but with soaring summer temperatures this isn’t always achievable.
At Cottonsafe® Natural Mattress our priority is your sleep, that’s why we’ve developed all our mattresses, futons and futomats with fillings that naturally support your body with temperature regulation all year round.
Sheep’s wool has a wonderful ability to wick away moisture and allow the air to circulate.
Cashmere goat fibres are super soft. They are highly adaptable to temperature, with insulating properties which change with the relative humidity in the air. In the winter it will keep you warm and insulated, yet it will ensure you stay cool in the summer.
Highly breathable and temperature regulating, bamboo helps keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Bamboo fibres are also hypoallergenic – perfect for those who suffer from sensitive skin or eczema and are said to have anti-bacterial properties.
Cotton Rich Felt
Cotton is breathable and transmits moisture away from the body and removes liquid from the skin, reducing night sweating.
Hemp is one of the strongest and most durable of natural textile fibres, the porous nature of Hemp also allows encourages air flow which is great for temperature regulation.
Polyester is a fantastic material for mattresses, this man-made fibre is incredibly breathable and evaporates moisture quickly, and with no animal-based products used in its production is ideal for Vegan mattresses.
100% Chemical Free
The fire retardants and other chemicals used in the fillings of traditional synthetic mattresses, such as a memory foam mattress are a major contributing factor to night sweating, when you buy from Cottonsafe® Natural Mattress you can be 100% confident that your sleep will be 100% chemical free!
