Who is the Emma Mattress Protector for?

Use the Emma Mattress Protector if you have a new mattress that you plan to use for years to come. The mattress cover will not make the mattress more comfortable, unlike a mattress topper. Instead, the mattress protector is useful if you want to protect your mattress from spills, damage and other things to extend its lifespan.

Overall, this product is suitable for:

What do we use this product for?

First of all, we use this product to protect the mattress, as its name suggests. But we also use it for hygienic reasons. You can take the Emma Mattress Protector with you when you travel and put it on any mattress to protect yourself from something that may be present on that mattress, such as dead skins cells, bed bugs and so on. We can never be 100% sure that everything is spotless clean in hotels and other places. Using a mattress protector at home adds another layer between you and your mattress so you won't need to try spot clean it when something spills.

It's main uses are:

Features you should know about the Emma Mattress Protector

The Emma Mattress Protector has 4 features we want to tell your more about. Mattress protectors are usually very simple, but Emma company made advanced mattress protector consisting of a few layers and additional features that will convince you to go for this product.


Allergies are something that affects a large number of people around the world, and therefore it is necessary to ensure a good protection against them. That is why Emma implemented AllergyShield in their mattress protector to protect you from pet hair and dust mite allergens. The use of this mattress protector has been proven to reduce the likelihood of developing allergies thanks to Allergy Shield.

EmmaGuard layer

Are you one of those people who like to have breakfast and coffee in bed? Or to drink a glass of wine in the evening while reading a book? As much as you enjoy it, it’s not something recommended unless you have a mattress protector.

If you don't have a mattress protector, you can damage your mattress if you spill something on it or if you drop crumbs that will cause bacteria to grow. The EmmaGuard layer is 100% waterproof and anything you spill while in bed will not be able to reach your mattress. You can wash your Emma Mattress Protector in the washing machine and it will come out impeccably clean.

360º grip

Crinkling is one of the main reasons why people avoid putting a protector on their mattress. Although they know the benefits of using a mattress protector, it is very annoying that you have to put it back in place every morning because it has moved while you sleep. The Emma Mattress Protector has a 360 degree grip that will always keep this mattress protector in place. It is also crinkle-free, and completely silent so you won’t even know there is something over your mattress.

Purotex polyester cover

Emma Mattress Protector is made of 100% polyester which makes it durable and machine washable. But that is not all. Purotex technology is applied to this mattress protector which is another additional, very important feature.

Purotex technology is applied to the mattress protector which contains microcapsules that are filled with natural probiotics. Probiotics are 100% natural and are a natural remedy in the fight against allergies. These microorganisms also reduce moisture, which is an ideal base for the development of allergens.

Review of the Emma Mattress Protector


Emma Mattress Protector is one of the best mattress protectors on the UK market because it is 100% waterproof, hypoallergenic and wrinkle-free. It will significantly reduce the wear and tear of your mattress and prolong its lifespan significantly. It is naturally hypoallergenic and also protects you from dust mites, bed bugs and many other things, making it ideal for those prone to allergies.

It doesn't move while you sleep for a comfortable night's sleep, and it's easy to install on one of the Emma mattresses.

What we like about the Emma Mattress Protector

How did we test the product?

an image of Emma mattress protector ready to be pulled on

Mattress protectors are one of the simplest products to test as there isn't much variation and no complex structure. Every product we receive goes through these three processes:

  • Visual inspection
  • Hands-on inspection
  • Measured tests

To make things even clearer, here's how we test the success of a duvet:

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

It is 100% waterproof and comfortable to sleep with, which are the most important characteristics of a mattress protector. Also, it is hypoallergenic, so it is specially useful for people with allergy problems. It's also designed like a fitted sheet with elasticated corners to fit snug to your mattress – unlike other mattress protectors on the market.

Overall impressions of the product after the testing

The mattress protector is available in so many sizes that you're sure to find one to fit your mattress – it can be worth double checking the sizing. You can get it in Single, Small Double, Double, King, and Super King size, as well as EU Single, Double and Queen size.

I think the two-tone design has been cleverly selected to match the same design of an Emma mattress as they all have a grey base and sides with a white top. Therefore, the mattress protector doesn't stand out for the mattress design. Obviously, this can't be said when it's used on other brand mattresses but it's great for Emma ones. There's no need to use a fitted sheet with it, it can just be used on its own.

It's a product worth adding to your bed, especially if you use a foam mattress with no removable cover as they can be more difficult to clean the spills from.

While it's an expensive choice of mattress protector, it is worth it for those who are often clumsy. It has many similarities to cheaper alternatives and you can find others that do the job just as well as this one. But if you're wanting one designed with waterproof being the top priority then this is it. Your mattress is sure to last as long as possible with this Emma Mattress Protector on top.
