Beginners are faced with yoga mats of different thicknesses, which one is most suitable? Choose according to the material.
TPE pads are the most environmentally friendly
TPE is the most high-end product for yoga mat products. It does not contain chloride, metal elements, and is antistatic. Each mat is about 1200 grams, which is about 300 grams lighter than PVC foam mats. It is more suitable for carrying out. General thickness 6mm-8mm
Soft, compliant, strong grip-it is more reliable when placed on any ground. Compared with a yoga mat made of PVC material, the weight is about 300 grams lighter, making it easier to carry around.
The price of yoga mats made of TPE material is relatively high.
The advantages of TPE mats are light weight, easy to carry, easy to clean, excellent in slip resistance in wet and dry conditions, and the mat TPE material has high purity and no smell. Most of the PVC foamed cushions still have some flavor due to the process and cost, and there is no way to remove this. Even if some products have no taste, it does not mean that their ingredients have changed or that some harmful substances do not exist, unless various inspections have been conducted through the standards of export products.
PVC is cheap and good quality
PVC foaming (the weight of a yoga mat with a pvc content of 96% is about 1500 grams) pvc is the name of a chemical raw material, a raw material. However, PVC did not have the function of softness and anti-slip cushioning without foaming. Only after foaming, can finished products like yoga mats and anti-slip mats be produced.
PVC materials are affordable and can be bought everywhere, with guaranteed quality and high cost performance.
Reminder: Avoid buying low-quality yoga mats made of secondary materials.
Cloth cushions are hard to buy
Sometimes, in yoga classes, we see some people using a yoga mat with bright colors, like an Arabian flying carpet, which is said to be an Indian yoga cloth mat. This kind of cloth mat is imported from India and is knitted and dyed by hand. It can be used on a regular plastic yoga mat. The reason for this is that the plastic yoga mat is not good for contact with the skin, and the cloth mat is also softer, and it can also be carried around to isolate when using public yoga mats. But I don’t know if the anti-slip effect of the cloth pad is ideal?
