What materials are the Liforme mats made from?Updated a year ago

The Liforme Mats are made from our high quality natural rubber base and our specially engineered, proprietary and completely unique eco-polyurethane. Both these materials are fully biodegradable and sustainably produced materials, and we spent over 5 years researching and developing before we launched our first version (and we’ve made a few improvements to our materials in the further 5 years since then)! We’re passionate about working with materials that are eco-friendly and non-toxic, both to humans and our planet.

We commissioned an independent study from a leading polymer expert at Imperial College, London in the UK (a global top 10 university with a world class reputation in science) that concludes that our materials are completely non-toxic and that when disposed of at the end of their useful life-cycle, Liforme mats will break down in landfill conditions with an estimated time to near-complete degradation of 1-5 years!

On top of this, the report also examines the issues around toxicity and biodegradability of PVC mats, which is sadly a common material still used by many other Yoga mat brands.
