II. Materials & Durability
Lululemon Reversible yoga mat is made from natural rubber that contains no PVC or other harmful chemicals, safe for use. Liforme Original yoga mat creates the GripForMe material to promote the excellent grippy mat. In fact, the so-called GripForMe material is basically natural rubber. Since many yoga mats of other brands have adopted natural rubber as the material, what are the shining points of Lululemon Reversible yoga mat and the Liforme Original yoga mat?
Lululemon Reversible yoga mat is bonded by two materials–natural rubber as the base and a layer of polyurethane on the surface of the mat. Coincidentally, Liforme Original yoga mat is also equipped with this eco-friendly material. That’s why both of them yield excellence.
The shortcoming of natural rubber is that it is not so durable, and Lululemon Reversible yoga mat as well as the Liforme Original yoga mat is no exception. After a long time of regular and intensive use (approximately half a year), yogis would find that both of them look worn and beat up. Additionally, rubber is prone to scratches and nails. So it would be better for yoga enthusiasts to have a manicure before practicing yoga asanas on a rubber mat, and they should keep sharp objects in place in case of scratches and injuries.
