The Brentwood Home Cypress Cooling Gel Memory Foam Mattress has been designed and constructed to have a medium-firm feel. The top layer in this mattress is that of gel-infused memory foam, which takes the shape of the body and contours accordingly. It also relates to the temperature and weight of the body. The top layer can quickly adjust to the body shape and also provides the required support. This way, the spine remains properly aligned, and the pressure points in the body are greatly relieved. These include the hip and the shoulders which take a lot of pressure. The mattress also consists of a support foam base, which can bear the weight of the body and the top matters layer and provides the required level of support. The mattress has also got a wool-lined zipper cover which can be removed.
Materials and Construction
The Brentwood Home Cypress Cooling Gel Memory Foam Mattress consists of 2 layers of foam, and it has also got a layer of New Zealand wool on top of the gel-infused memory foam layer. All of these are enclosed in a durable but very soft bamboo-derived rayon cover which does not contain any toxins. It is removable and even replaceable. However, it has got many properties which allow for a lot of benefits. The Eco-Luxury Viscose Bamboo used in the cover of this mattress provides several advantages to the environment as well. The bamboo crop grows fast, and it is grown in areas which are deemed unnecessary for forestry purposes. Moreover, no pesticides are used as this bamboo crop is grown. The soft inner pith of the hard bamboo trunk as well as the bamboo leaves are processed by steaming them, and then these are crushed mechanically to produce cellulose. The entire process which yields this cellulose from bamboo is a closed-loop process. This cellulose is then converted to viscose rayon. This product is naturally hypoallergenic, and it also helps to regulate the temperature. It has got properties which are ideal for making a person go to sleep quicker as it provides softness and cool sleep. It can sweat and moisture and creates a cool and dry microenvironment on the mattress. The product is ideal for people who have allergy issues as it resists allergens, dust mites, bacteria, etc. and it is odor-resistant as well. Its hypoallergenic nature helps it to resist odors as it does not let any bacterial growth build up on its surface.
The bamboo cover has been lined with New Zealand wool, and this cover has been zippered. New Zealand wool is a natural material which is also sustainable. It provides a lot of benefits as well. It acts as a natural barrier against fire, and therefore, no flame retardants, etc. which are chemicals are required in the mattress. The New Zealand wool lining can wick away sweat and moisture as well due to its breathability. It has also got temperature regulation properties and ensures that the mattress remains at the desired temperature. In the hot summer nights, it allows for a very cool and dry sleep while the sleep experience in winter is warm and dry. Thus, the material has an all-seasons appeal, and the mattress can be used all year round.
Joma Wool is obtained very meticulously as it is shorn from crossbred sheep. These sheep roam freely in the remote farmlands of New Zealand. These sheep have known the world over as they give the strongest, cleanest and whitest wool. This occurs due to a variety of factors which include the climate of the area, expert farming practices, and proper care. The product is extremely high quality, and it is beneficial for both people and the environment. This wool meets Standard 100 for a quality set by OEKO-TEX. The wool has also been verified in independent laboratory testing regarding its traceability. Moreover, the farmers who rear thee sheep in New Zealand strongly adhere to the five freedoms for animals.
The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is a global standard which assures that the manufacturers of this wool strictly meet the standards set against the use of several hundred harmful chemicals which include heavy metals, carcinogenic colorants, and pesticides. Thus, the wool is non-toxic and brings the same non-toxicity to the mattress as well. The farmers producing this wool follow strict rules for animal care. They handle the sheep with care and promote a healthy ecosystem in their grazing pastures. They also follow the five animal freedoms which are the freedom from discomfort, freedom from hunger and thirst, freedom to express normal behavior, freedom of pain, disease, and injury and finally, freedom from distress and fear. An independent auditor verifies the originality of Joma Wool; Oritain who declare it to be genuinely originating from New Zealand. The auditor does so by testing the product first and delivers scientific verification as to the true origin of the wool.
Joma Wool meets all the standards prevailing these days for hygiene. The amount of chlorine used in the processing of the wool is kept to a minimum. This process sanitizes wool. It is done because there is n other feasible option available, which is as good as this one to sanitize the wool. However, the manufacturer of this wool is trying continuously to look for alternative processing. The manufacturer aims to achieve a balance between ‘clean’ and ‘green.’
The 2-inch gel-infused memory foam layer in the mattress is the top foam layer under the New Zealand wool-zippered bamboo viscose rayon cover. The purpose of gel-infusion into, memory foam and its use in the top mattress layer are that it provides coolness on top of the mattress. Memory foam, indeed, can be body-conforming and pressure point relieving, yet, it does not allow the body to heat an escape route out of the sleep system. This leads to a hot sleep, which produces discomfort throughout the night leading to tossing ad turning. The gel-infusion in memory foam allows for enhanced air circulation through the open cells of gel-infused memory foam. Therefore, the body heat finds a way to escape as the airflow generated within the mattress layer enables the trapped heat to be carried away by the airflow. This leaves the mattress and the sleeper at a very comfortable temperature and provides a cool sleep.
Like the bamboo viscose rayon cover, the gel-infused memory foam is also naturally hypoallergenic. It does not allow dust mites, bacteria, and allergens to live within the foam and repels these organisms. This provides sanitary cleanliness to the gel-infused layer of memory foam, which increases its life and keeps the entire mattress clean. It also makes the mattress ideal for use by those people who suffer from allergies and normally wake up with stuffed noses and skin irritations on conventional foam. These people can stop worrying about allergy-related issues while using this mattress as both the viscose bamboo rayon cover as well as the gel-infused memory foam layer are both hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, and temperature regulating. This leads to a perfectly cool sleep throughout the night free of any possible tossing or turning.
The last layer in the Brentwood Home Cypress Cooling Gel Memory Foam Mattress is that of a high-density support foam which acts as a base for the mattress. Traditionally, pocket springs were used to give this type of support to the body. However, the high-density foam has proven to be ideal for this type of support as it does not allow dust mites and alleges to house themselves in it, unlike the innerspring mattresses which have a lot of space in which such organisms can live and thrive. High-density foam leaves no such space for them as high-density foam usually has a density greater than 5 lbs./ft3. This means that only as much as a cubic foot of foam weighs more than 5 lbs. for such support foams. The denial of living space to the dust mites and allergens by the high density of this type of foam makes the entire mattress very ‘sanitary.’
And this results in prolonging the life of the mattress besides keeping it and the surroundings very clean for the benefit of the sleeper as well as the room environment.

Comfort & Ergonomics
The best way to have a quality sleep is to stay cool throughout the night. This provides the maximum comfort as long as the feel or firmness of the mattress is to the liking of the sleeper. This mattress is designed to excel others in the matter of coolness during sleep. The bamboo viscose rayon cover, along with natural wool lining, and the layer of gel-infused foam work in tandem with each other to create a perfectly cool environment. They regulate body temperature and wick away the moisture and sweat. All of these materials have high breathability, and they combine their strengths to bring an ideally cool sleep on top of this mattress. The high breathability of these materials initiates an airflow which keeps the mattress clean and at the sometimes regulates the temperature. The mattress is kept at a comfortable temperature ad. Thus, it provides a very high-quality and deep rest, which does not involve any tossing and turning due to discomfort. It allows one to sleep deeply and soundly throughout the night and wake up the next morning to face the hectic day ahead with full confidence and energy.
The other characteristic of this mattress, which provides comfort is the body-conforming nature of the gel-infused memory foam as well as its ability to relieve pressure points like hips and shoulders. It also aligns the spine in a neutral position and does not let the sleeper experience any pain or ache. The mattress under the body is depressed when the body is right on it; however, as the body shifts, the mattress gains its shape back gradually due to a bounce-back capability. This provides motion isolation and if there are two people sleeping on the mattress. Movement of one would not disturb the other. This is ideal for those couples who have different sleep schedules. When one wakes up, the other one would not be disturbed. The gel-infused memory foam along with the New Zealand wool lining as well as the bamboo cover protects from dust mites and bacterial growth as well. The absence of allergens in this mattress is a great source of comfort to those users who have got allergy-related issues. They can now spend their nights comfortably and enjoy a perfectly cool and clean sleep throughout the night.
The ergonomics produced by the gel-infused memory foam in combination with the 7-inch support foam base are the reason behind the comfort provided to the body. The gel-infused memory foam does relieve pressure points, but it does allow the body to sink in the mattress and this is balanced by a high level of support offered by the support foam bae which applies a force in the opposite direction. The body is therefore cushioned and supported at the same time leading to a lot of comforts. The shoulders neck, head and the hips are properly supported and they are also relieved of any uncomforting pressure. The bottom layer of the mattress offers the same type of support which is offered by coil springs in the traditional mattresses. The springs apply a bounce back to neutralize the sink of the user, and the support foam base does the same without the user feeling anything hard underneath. The support is even, and the gel-infused memory foam enables an even distribution of weight in conjunction with the support foam. This works better as compared to a coil spring mattress where the weight of the body is not distributed evenly throughout the mattress but is concentrated on the coil springs directly beneath the body. The combination of the gel memory foam and the supportive foam works better in this regard as the weight of the body is evenly distributed throughout the mattress. Thus, the ergonomics of this mattress produce a lot of comforts both in terms of coolness during sleep as well as even body weight distribution throughout the mattress. The mattress provides a very comfortable and supportive sleep experience throughout the night.
