Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress is a 100% foam mattress. Yes, that’s correct! The top layer is memory foam, and the lower layer is a combination of comforting foam and high-density foam. This only means this green tea mattress is 100% quiet, unlike those spring mattress we see in the market—which we are uncertain of the noise it carries with it.
First, we would like to inform you this Zinus Memory Foam is a CertiPUR—US Certified. What does it mean? Well, it means that this mattress is safe to use. It doesn’t have ozone depleters and other harmful chemicals that will cause diseases to its users in the future.
What are the chemicals we are talking about?
- Heavy Metals
- Flame Retardant
It’s important to avoid mattresses that use the above chemicals. Well, we might not get sick today, but when we allow ourselves to get exposed to these things for a long time, we’ll absorb it little by little and might get the disease we don’t expect to have.
So, better avoid these chemicals before it’s too late.
Well, what we have here is this 12-Inch Green Tea Mattress. Let’s try to break this down.
It has a three inches Memory Foam on top which will serve as the absorber of your movement. It contours to your body regardless of the movement you do during your sleep at night.
How will it be beneficial to you? You’ll enjoy this feature so much if you have someone sleeping beside you on this bed. You won’t be able to feel or you won’t wake up in the middle of the night because that person moves a lot. So, it will give you an uninterrupted sleep at night.
The second layer is the two inches Comfort Foam below its Memory Foam. Well, this part is the one who relieves the pain you’ll possibly get while lying down on the bed. It gives the right amount of pressure to your body, so you won’t experience stiffness when you wake up in the morning.
The third and fourth layers are 3.5 inches Airflow High-Density Foam and 3.5 inches Airflow High-Density Base Support Foam. These two layers keep everything in place. It holds the first two layers firmly so it won’t sink sooner.
And since the whole mattress is thick, we assure you it won’t deform its shape for years.
What does the Green Tea Extract do to this Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress?
This Green Tea Extract is the main attraction of this Zinus Mattress. What it does is it keeps the foam fresh inside and out. It’s important that the foam is always fresh, right? Because if not, it might attract bacteria and will give off an unfavorable smell which we don’t like.
It also has an ActivCharcoal feature. How does it work? Imagine if you sweat a lot during your sleep and it falls in your bed. What it does is it absorbs the moisture to keep it dry. Well, this sweat transforms into bacteria which gives off a bad smell. And if this Memory Foam doesn’t have this feature, you won’t want to lie in your bed anymore because it doesn’t look and feel fresh, right.
Aside from this extract, this mattress also has an anti-oxidant feature which also prevents molds and bacteria to reproduce inside the foam. These things make the whole thing disgusting, and we don’t like that to happen.
However, we assure you, you won’t get sweaty on this because the foam itself doesn’t get hot even during the summer season.
Thickness and Sizes Available
There’s a lot of choices in terms of thickness and sizes. For example in this 12-Inch thick foam, the sizes are Twin, Full, Queen, King, and Cal King. Wow! That’s a lot, right?
Well, there are other sizes like Narrow Twin, Twin XL, and Short Queen, but it’s only available in their 6-Inch thick foam. This means that the sizes also depend on the thickness of the foam, so don’t expect that the Narrow Twin Size is also available on their 8-Inch thick foam.
But let us give you an idea about the sizes and thickness. See the below list.
12-inch is available in below sizes:
- Twin: 39″L x 75″W x 12″H (39.3 lbs.)
- Full: 54″L x 75″W x 12″H (53.4 lbs.)
- Queen: 60″L x 80″W x 12″H (66.2 lbs.)
- King: 76″L x 80″W x 12″H (79.4 lbs.)
- California King: 72″L x 84″W x 12″H (90 lbs.)
Mattress thickness is available in (together with the sizes available):
- 6 inches: Narrow Twin, Twin, Full, Short Queen, Queen, and King
- 8 inches: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Short Queen, Queen, and king
- 10 inches: Twin, Full, Queen, and King
- 12 inches: Twin, Full, Queen, King, and California King
Of course, it’s a bit difficult to choose which one is best for you, but let’s share to you something so you’ll get an idea which thickness will best suit you.
If you are a back sleeper, choose a thinner foam, because it’s firmer than the thicker one. A 6-inch or 8-inch is best for you, while the 10-inch or 12-inch is best for the side/back sleeper because it’s plushier than the previous one.
Is it compressed?
Yes, they compressed this Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress so it could fit in a small box for smart-box shipping. Aside from the purpose of smart delivery, you’ll also benefit on this because it will be easier for you to move it around, right?
Since they compressed this Memory Foam Mattress, it means you won’t be able to use it right after you received it. It takes time before it fully expands. Well, as per the manufacturer, it’s best to wait 72 hours for it to fully expand. It’s three long days! Maybe I couldn’t wait anymore. Don’t worry. You could still use it after you unpacked it. It’s just, you’ll experience stiffness while lying on it. In which might cause you to have complaints against the mattress. And since we don’t want that to happen, let’s stick with the 72-hour timeline, so the foam could freely expand without interruption.
Does it have a warranty?
Yes, it does. Zinus offers a 10-year limited warranty upon purchase.
