by Parklane Mattresses
is a "specialty sleep" mattress, which means it does not have springs. Instead, support is provided by a foam support core. This support core is 4 inches of highly resilient polyurethane made from plant-based oils (such as soy). According to Parklane
's answer to a question, only a portion of the petroleum oil is replaced by soy oil. It is more sustainable, but still has some out-gassing. (All "plant-based" polyurethane in mattresses, regardless of the manufacturer, is still made mostly of petroleum oils for durability.)
The support core of Parklane Mattresses
' The Halsey
rests on a 2" base layer made of high-density foam, also plant-based. This is very dense, very firm foam which undergirds the mattress itself to protect the support core and keep the mattress from sagging. Even with this base, a foam mattress still needs full support from the foundation.
The comfort section of The Halsey
by Parklane Mattresses
is three layers of Talatech
® (Talalay) latex. This is 100% natural latex, meaning it is made soley from the sap of the Brasilian rubber tree (which is cultivated in Southeast Asia as well as South America). Among the listed benefits of latex, it is hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal. Talalay latex is also breathable due to the way it is processed with an open-cell structure. Latex's conformability rivals that of memory foam, but it is more resilient, rebounding almost instantly. Also, it is more durable than latex, more resistant to leaving body indentations.
The cover of this 10" mattress is made of bamboo-infused fabric. The bamboo in the fabric makes it anti-bacterial and resistant to dust mites and other allergens. It is also breathable and wicks away moisture, helping to keep the sleeping surface cool.
