The Ghostbed Company was founded not long time ago in 2015, it was made as one of Nature’s Sleep division. What inspired the Ghostbed CEO to found the Company was to simplify the process of mattress shopping by eliminating the need to deal with salesperson in the showroom.

The mattress was made with three layers of memory foam and was covered with a material from the combination of viscose and polyester, the material itself is pretty stretchy and thin, the intention is to allow air flow going through the mattress to regulate the temperature.
The top layer is the 1.5 inches comfort layer of latex foam, the material has an attribute to be able to respond quickly to pressure. This layer will give you bounce and keep you from feeling stuck when sleeping in the mattress. The latex also does a well job to dissipate body heat and keep your body cool when sleeping. This layer was also aerated to improve breathability and improve temperature regulation. The second layer is the 2 inches memory foam.
