Review - Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow

There are many different types of pillows in the market and sometimes I am at a lost of what to pick to best suit our sleeping needs.

What are your considerations in picking your right pillow? Here are mine.

- Pillow Filling (Natural/Chemical)
- Firmness
- Price

Over the years, I have tried various types of pillows and here's my overall experience.

Cotton Pillow - One of my first pillows in my early years. Love the softness and its breathable and washable. But as I get older, cotton pillows cannot provide the support that I needed. Filling tends to get lumpy and the pillow is not very moldable.

Down Pillow - Light, soft and comfortable but it is a little pricey and feels a little warm. Need to fluff the pillow to keep its shape.

Polyester Pillow - Cheap and lightweight. Unfortunately, the pillow usually won't last as it lumps up. Plus it also don't feel breathable and not my choice of selection.

Memory Foam Pillow - Offers support and its moldable but may feel warmer to sleep. Price range varies.

Latex Pillow - Moldable and feels breathable. It comes with a pricey tag


Recently, I had the opportunity to try out Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow. Priced at SGD129, I am curious how this pillow compared to the rest that we had tried.

Let's learn more about the product first.

1. Designed in Germany,

2. Made of natural latex with Coolmax® cooling gel. The latex foam is denser as compared to memory foam or fibre and it moulds to the shape of your head to give you better sleep support.

3. Latex is naturally durable with hypoallergenic properties that have lesser dust, bacteria or mould issues making it a hygienic choice for pillows especially for those who have allergies.

4. Unlike many pillows, it comes with a removal Tencel fabric pillow cover. Tencel is known for its natural comfort, and being softer as compared to cotton. It is hypoallergenic, lightweight and extremely ideal for hot weather climates like Singapore.

The benefits looks really good so here comes the actual touch and sleep test!

Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow feels softer and yet firm on touch. Covered beautifully with a Tencel Fabric removable pillow cover that gives extra comfort and protection. I can machine washed the cover easily too.

After resting on Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow for 2 weeks, there is my experience.

1) Comfort - It is really comfortable and cooling (especially ideal during hot weather). Made of Natural Latex + Coolmax Cooling Gel, I feel more rested!

2) Support - Even though Origin Pillow is not as thick or fluffy as my other pillows, it provides very good support on my neck. I realized that my head is still on the pillow the following morning. 

Usually my head will slip from the pillow but Origin Superior Coolmax moulds the shape of my head very well and gives me the right level of sleep support. I do not feel any aches like before.

It does comes with a higher price tag for a pillow. but come to think about it, we spend at least 6-8 hours sleeping (that is one-third of a day) and it is definitely beneficial and a good investment to get hold of a good pillow support to provide you a better night rest.

There is no one size that fits all and your perfect pillow ultimately depends on individual preference and needs.
