Pillows from down and feathers

They provide air exchange, absorb moisture, regulate heat transfer. Especially soft and comfortable products are obtained from goose and duck down. Disadvantages: high risk of allergic reaction to dust mite excrement (they settle in the filler), the need for regular drying and disinfection. In addition, after five years, the feather collapses, the pillow loses its elasticity.

Vegetable fillers

Their advantages: massage and aromatherapy effects, good air circulation. Now at the peak of popularity are buckwheat pillows, easily taking the form of the neck and head and at the same time gently massaging the skin. Such products have enough disadvantages too: increased rigidity, rustling of the cushion contents, laborious care (airing, dry cleaning, disinfection). After 2-3 years, the filler has to be changed due to wear.

Bamboo

When they ask which pillow to choose for sleeping, so that the filler is at the same time natural, hypoallergenic, antibacterial, breathable, the answer is: pay attention to bamboo fiber products. In addition, they are durable, easy to wash and affordable. Bamboo is not suitable for a humid climate: a hygroscopic pillow is saturated with moisture and does not have time to dry. Also, some note its increased rigidity.

Latex

Natural springy and soft foam rubber material. Latex filler has high bactericidal and orthopedic properties. The pillow perfectly reproduces the outlines of the head and neck, and then restores the former shape. The service life of the product (without loss of performance) is about 20 years.
