Here’s a quick overview of the differences:

Gel memory foam is basically traditional polyurethane memory foam with gel or gel particulates mixed in. Since gel takes on the temperature of what it is near, it can feel cool to the touch initially when used near the surface of a mattress in a cool room (gel’s key selling point).

The feeling can be subjective and depends on the user, the type of material, location of the gel, etc. There aren’t any definitive studies or tests, and Consumer Reports’ testing has found little difference in breathability between gel and non-gel beds in previous years.

Our plant-based BioPur memory foam uses a unique formulation and open structure that is inherently conducive to airflow and heat dissapation.

It is also temperature neutral, meaning it doesn’t require your body heat to contour, it adjusts rapidly to pressure. In our reviews, fewer than 3% of people mention heat compared to an industry average of 10-15%.

Thanks for reading, and let us know if you have any other questions!

Rosie
