Memory Foam or Latex: Which is the Best Pillow?

Looking for the best pillow to relieve your stiff neck and offer some neck pain relief?  Interested in purchasing an orthopedic pillow, but not sure between memory foam pillows and talalay latex pillows? 

MATERIALS:
Memory foam pillows are made of man-made chemicals including polyurethane, acetone and methylbenzene. A researcher at Duke University has found that they can contain up to 61 toxic chemicals (including carcinogens) linked to itchy eyes, respiratory issues and headaches. Initial chemical odor/off-gasing is also common. 

Talalay pillows are naturally derived from rubber trees.  It conforms and moves with your body, providing spine and posture support and exceptional muscle relief without harmful off gas compounds. PILLO1 cervical pillow is certified OEKO-TEX Class 100, by the leading global testing and certification process that ensures textile materials and home furnishing products do NOT contain harmful substances or pose a health risk to consumers. Very few latex or foam producers in the world meet the standards. Learn more.

DURABILITY:
Memory foam is derived from plastic which degrades fairly quickly, leaving your head and neck without support.  Talalay latex lasts much longer, are made of a special type of rubber and are 20x more durable.

HYPOALLERGENIC:
Have allergies? Make sure to choose a hypoallergenic pillow to avoid dust mites and mold.  Memory foam pillows are made of a synthetic product, so there is no natural anti-microbial, anti-fungal, or protection from dust mites.  Talalay latex pillows like PILLO1 are naturally hypoallergenic, dust-mite and mold resistent. 

COMFORT & SUPPORT:
PILLO1 Talalay pillows are bouyant, stretching and comforming to your natural shape, while simultaneously maintianing your proper spinal alignment for back pain and stiff neck pain relief. 

With memory foam, your body actually sinks into it causing pain.  Talalay provides 33% more pressure relief while simultaneously creating support because of the buoyant nature of latex.

TEMPERATURE:
Memory foam has a tendancy to overheat. It's important stay cool at night for optimal sleep. Talalay foam has an open cell structure and is 7x more breathable to allow you to sleep cool at night. 

Ultimately, only you can find the best pillow for you.
