Default Best way to condition headrests

Hello,

Given the squishy nature of the slatted headrests in 240s, I'd like to try to preserve the condition of mine as best as possible. Does anyone know specifically what these are made and covered with, and a specific fluid to use to ensure these don't dry up and begin to flake? I don't mind if whatever recommended to condition them leaves a film, as I rarely rest my head on them while driving.

Perfect, thank you for the quick response. I figured it was vinyl, but wanted to ask before I work in some conditioner that might end up making them worse.

Honestly those headrests are probably death traps in an accident these days. I'd DEFINITELY recommend getting the padded inserts if you're able to.
