Latex pillows are new to the Singapore market due to their durability and comfortable features. Unlike normal memory forms and pillows, these pillows regain their original shape after use.
The pillow is made from the natural and organic material, taking extracts from the rubber tree. However, if you like the synthetic type then Singapore market also offer that. But for the synthetic type keep in mind that those are not very durable as natural pillows.
Types of Latex Pillows:
There are two main types of latex pillows available in Singapore. These are:
- Natural Type. This type is eco-friendly and durable. The material of the pillow is chemical free with no foul odour or smell. The texture of the pillow is very soft and adjustable. Pillow can be maintained for long due to good durability. If you are low on budget, then you may find the pillow expensive to buy. Apart from this, the size of the pillow is slightly big which makes is heavy. It is also dense when put under the head. Thus, if you are habitual of using narrow and small pillow then you may find it initially hard to use. It is pertinent to mention that the availability of the pillow is also not easy in the Singapore market. So, if you want to buy the Latex pillow, then preferably look for the natural type available in the Singapore market.
- Synthetic Type. This type is manmade and cheaper when compared with the natural pillow. Though the support provided by this type is somehow same like that of natural type. If you want to have the comfortable Latex pillow with low price range, then you can check the synthetic type available in the Singapore market. But there are some issues related with this type as well. The pillow gives odour of chemical material. Unlike synthetic type, the shape of the pillow also gets flatten and has a shorter life.
Since the latex pillow is said to have many advantages, but the availability remains a big issue for many. Some retailer in Singapore take order and deliver the pillow later on. While other prepares the special pillow on order only. So it can be seen how popular these pillows are in the market.
Most people are not sure as when to replace their Latex pillow. Since all the pillows have their specific life and after that, their quality and durability lessens. So Latex pillow has a life time of around 3 to 4 years, during which it works best. Normal Memory form has a life of 1.5 to 3 years’ time and after that it has to be replaced. Also feather type has a same life of 1.5 to 3 years. The polyester type has a life of 6 months to 2 years.
The article highlights types and the life of most pillows available in the Singapore market. It can be seen that the Latex pillow is better in terms of its life, texture and make and is strongly recommend by many. If you want to buy the one from the market, then you may need to pre-order as the pillow is not easily available in the market.
