Origin Latex Pillow Review

A lot of preparation is ongoing for our wedding day. We bought a mattress a long time ago yet until now I could not find a comfortable pillow for myself. Honestly, I have tried memory foam, duck feathers and herbal health pillows from different brands but none of these were up to my expectation. On a random day, I came across the Origin brand from someone. I browsed the website and Google with many good reviews about it. After a few rounds of consideration, I decided to give it a try. There is the reason why I’m taking a week to consider as I have many pillows in my house. I regretted buying one a year ago from S brand costs me RMxxx but was uncomfortable and I could not return it since they don’t provide such service.

So, this time I ordered a new pillow from Origin. It is a risk-free purchase as they provide a 7-days return service if we feel regret buying it. That is something great for me as I don’t need to try it in the showroom under pressure from the salesperson. I prefer if we could be given a longer time period to see if it really suits us. Since Origin is giving us a week to try and pick it up for free from our home with a full refund without asking a word, I think it is worth giving it a try.

I placed my order on 14 March 2022 and received it on 29 March 2022. It is a bit earlier than expected as we are planning to have it by 1 April 2022. The parcel is well packed in a light green colour hardboard box. Inside the pillow is covered with a transparent plastic bag. The pillow is surprisingly denser than other pillows that I had. It has a super bouncy “doi doi” feel as well. After a few nights' trials, I had already fallen in love with it. It provides my head with enough supportive lift than letting my head sink deeply into the pillow. 

Besides, from a health perspective, the pillow holds my head and reliefs pressure on the cervical spine (neck area). It is recommended by studies that we are not supposed to sleep on a pillow that is too high or too low or does not give enough support because it possibly increases a person’s likelihood of getting neck pain due to improper spinal alignment. Previously, I had to stack 2 pillows together to sleep as the pillows are too low for me. Anyway, this is a bad habit and wrong sleeping posture that could cause harm in the long run. A simple way to know if your pillow is still functional, fold the pillow in half, if the pillow does not bounce back, the pillow is “dead” as it is no longer keeping your neck and spine in alignment according to Dr Karan Raj, NHS surgeon in the UK.

Another thing I am concerned about is the hygienic and cleanliness issue. We usually see some yellowish spot or stain appear on the pillow after using it for some time. There was a time after I cleaned it, and the stain was still there even though it was not that obvious anymore. From a Google search, pillows turn yellow because of sweat and moisture. There are other reasons why moisture is trapped in the pillow including falling asleep with wet hair, drooling during sleep, and lotions and oils on the skin. That moisture can breed mould and bacteria. This can cause asthma, eczema and other health issues. However, Origin latex pillow is resistant to dust mites, mould, mildew and bacteria due to the existence of a compound, hevein in the natural latex.

Origin pillow also comes with a washable and removable pillow cover. This protection cover allows us to wash it when needed to prolong our pillow’s life in daily use. Luxuriously threaded with Tencel™ fabric, this pillow cover is softer than the common cotton material. It is hypoallergenic and lightweight. Tencel™ is also breathable and manages moisture so it helps with temperature regulation. Both Origin latex pillow and pillow cover are designed to create constant air circulation. Thus, they prevent trapped heat and create any unpleasant odours.

Another great thing about Origin latex pillow is that it is relatively safe for children and the elderly. Origin foam is certified by CertiPUR-US® that it meets the following requirements:
  • Made without ozone depleters
  • Made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (“Tris”) flame retardants
  • Made without mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
  • Made without formaldehyde
  • Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
  • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million)
So, it is rest assured Origin latex pillow is made without any harmful materials that are banned in the US or on the watch list. This is very important as substandard foam could cause a hard time breathing, headaches, nausea, eye and throat irritation, or asthma. Well, that’s my personal review of Origin latex pillow. I recommend also checking out Origin's award-winning mattress. For more information, please visit: https://originmattress.com.my/
