5 ways to spot an original bamboo memory foam pillow
1. Material weave in the casing
The first thing that you will notice in a memory foam bamboo pillow is its beautiful weave casing. This is made possible by the bamboo fiber material that is used to create the entire fabric. Unless you see any weave and texture, the pillow you are buying is an imitation.
2. Demonstrate for absorbency
Bamboo fiber is extremely absorbent compared to other bases. It is even used for eco-diapers and towels because of its absorbent quality. When buying a bamboo queen pillow at a physical store, try to have it demonstrated for absorbency. But if you’re buying from online stores, check for the composition of the bamboo fiber and other materials. If there is no mention of it, you can always send the shop an email to find out.
3. Removable filling
People prefer a certain bulk or built for their side sleeper pillows. Did you know you can personalize the thickness of your pillow bamboo? Unlike regular pillows where thickness is predetermined, you can adjust from thicker to thinner because fillings are removable. The casing is zippered and not sewn so you can remove fillings according to your preference.
4. Vacuumed-packed packaging of shredded memory foam
Vacuum packaging is usually used in food to extend shelf life but it can also be used in non-perishable items such as shredded memory foam. Aside from space-saving, it’s also less messy when you receive it.
5. CertiPUR-US Certified Foam label
Always looks for the CertiPUR-US Certified Foam label. The CertiPUR-US is a certification program done by non-profit organization to test against harmful chemicals in foams. The test includes testing against the following chemicals:
- ozone depleters
- DCPP or TCEP (“Tris”) flame retardants
- lead, mercury, and other heavy materials /li>
- VOC or Volatile Organic Compound
Nothing beats the original especially when talking benefits. You can’t replace peace of mind when you’re shelling out money to buy something that you can value. Don’t lose sleep, pun intended, over buying original products versus imitation products.
