What is a cooling pillow?
Designed with your comfort in mind, a cooling pillow is a type of bedding that helps to regulate body temperature by providing a cooler sleeping surface. The perfect respite from those warmer days and nights.
How do cooling pillows work
Cooling pillows aid us during the warmer months of the year to provide us with a more comfortable, and cool, sleeping surface. They work by dissipating heat from your body, which often involves incorporating materials that give a high thermal conductivity such as gel or gel-infused memory foam.
Another way in which a cooling pillow works is by using moisture management technology, which allows the pillow to stay cool all night long. It works by absorbing moisture that is generated by body heat and quickly transporting it to the fabric face. The face of the cooling pillow continues to absorb moisture, resulting in a cooling effect on the skin.

What are the benefits of cooling pillows?
After a day enjoying the hot weather, there is nothing worse than resenting it at night. Tossing and turning in the heat can leave people feeling frustrated and awake and, when you have errands to do or work in the morning, feeling rundown and underslept can interfere with your concentration.
When purchasing a cooling pillow, you are making an investment in yourself, your sleep quality and your productivity. Not only are they made from long lasting and hard-wearing materials, cooling pillows allow the user to have a better nights’ sleep, as well as a comfortable one.
It's important to note that cooling pillows work in conjunction with your body's natural temperature. While they can help create a cooler sleeping environment and enhance comfort, individuals may experience them slightly differently depending on personal preferences, room temperature, and other factors that influence body heat.
