Definition of Latex Pillow
Meaning of the Term as it Pertains to Mattresses
What is a Latex Pillow?
A pillow that uses latex foam as cushioning, a latex pillow may use a block of latex or shredded pieces of the material as filling. Like latex mattresses, latex pillows are naturally hypoallergenic. Individuals who are allergic to microorganisms that breed on mattresses often purchase latex pillows along with latex mattresses. Latex pillows also appeal to environmentally conscientious shoppers because they can be made from 100% natural materials.
As dense, highly elastic pieces of foam, latex pillows conform to the head and provide custom neck support. The pillows are also highly durable and do not sag or deflate over time like standard pillows. Additionally, latex pillows feel a bit springier than cotton-filled pillows. The unique breathability of latex allows the pillow to stay cool throughout the night. More durable than common pillows, latex pillows often last upwards of five years.
