GhostBed markets the Luxe as “The Coolest Bed in the World” and that effort starts in the materials used in the construction of the mattress. The Luxe has phase change material and gel memory foam, two materials known for their cooling and temperature regulation properties, in multiple locations in the mattress. Along with their cooling properties, the materials in the GhostBed Luxe should allow the sleeper to sink into the mattress for pressure relief.
Cover – The cover of the Luxe is a proprietary blend that uses phase change material to provide temperature regulation and cooling. It’s a smooth material and I found it to be cool to the touch when I first got my hands on the mattress.
I should also point out that the cover is quilted to provide some initial pressure relief and comfort. In the cover is a 0.5” fiber layer as well as a 1” layer of gel memory foam. Memory foam has a reputation for trapping body heat at times, but the gel infusion helps to defend against sleeping too hot.
Phase Change Material – There is a thin layer of phase change material just below the quilted cover that covers the entire surface area of the comfort layer beneath it. This layer will help with temperature regulation and cooling of the mattress.
Comfort Layer – This layer consists of 2 inches of gel memory foam. This layer will allow the sleeper to sink into mattress for pressure relief and contour to the body. Another advantage of the gel infusion of the memory foamis that it will help to dissipate body heat. This goes along with GhostBed’s aim of making the Luxe a cool sleeping environment.
Transition Layer – Below the comfort layer is 2 inches of GhostBed’s proprietary bounce foam. It is a soft layer of foam and while it allows the sleeper to sink into the mattress a bit more, it has a quick response to pressure to provide some bounce and defend against a stuck feeling. This layer also acts as a transition from the soft comfort layer above to the firm base below.
Base Layer – The base of the mattress is made of 7.5” of high density polyfoam. This is a firm material with a quick response to pressure that acts as the foundation for the structure. The base provides support to the layers above it as well as deep compression support to the sleeper. This layer also gives the Luxe its shape and provides some durability.
