Available in plush (D65 Soft) and firm latex (D75 Medium Firm), they are exactly the same as the Avocado Green Mattress Topper but use cotton instead of wool. Avocado prefers Dunlop latex for its products because it requires less processing than Talalay latex (and is therefore a bit more environmentally friendly). Avocado also makes its own GOLS-certified latex, sourced from its own farmer associations in India working under the USDA’s National Organic Program. Dunlop latex is naturally antimicrobial, cooler than memory foam, requires no adhesives to sew together and is more durable than Talalay latex.
Avocado does not use polyurethane or toxic flame retardants, pesticides or other risky chemicals. The mattresses are handmade to order in California and workers are paid a fair and living wage.

The bamboo blend also makes the mattress topper breathable, allowing air to circulate better and preventing heat build-up to keep you cool all night long. Saatva’s innovative 3-inch mattress topper is infused with graphite and features advanced technology to keep you cool. According to the brand, the graphite layer conducts heat away from your body while the foam reduces motion transfer.

This is good news for side sleepers. The Saatva topper provides pressure relief at the shoulders and hips, so side sleepers can get the rest they need and wake up without aching muscles.

The top layer is made of alt latex, a type of high-density foam that gives the topper its soft, plush quality. According to Casper, the foams have tiny holes in them to allow warm air to escape so you don’t overheat.
They are also hypoallergenic, which protects your bed from dust mites and other unwanted pests. The toppers are made to fit seamlessly to your mattress and because they are slightly heavier, you don’t have to worry about them slipping during sleep. The Birch by Helix mattress pad is really in a class of its own.

There are no synthetic materials, harmful chemicals or polyurethane-based foams.
The thickness of the mattress is 2 inches, but it uses a 100% GOLS certified organic mattress.

It also uses 91% less water to grow cotton than other brands that are not as conscious about making similar products from cotton. Many more affordable models have a thickness of 2 inches, but this may only be sufficient for back and stomach sleepers.
In addition, side sleepers may have difficulty falling asleep if the sleeping surface is not thick enough and they can still feel the mattress under the topper. The perfect balance is a thickness of 3 inches (although some products in the list are as thin as 2 inches), while 4 inches is recommended for heavier sleepers and those with chronic pain.
