People often go out in search of a memory foam mattress or bed, but for some reason they pay little attention to the most important sleeping accessory – their pillow! Well, there’s a new trend in pillows that is gaining traction in the United States.
The coconut memory foam pillow and cloud coconut gel pillow, both made by Chili Technologies, have already revolutionized the sleeping experience for many early adopters. Thousands of converts swear by the cooling comfort of these coconut-infused memory foam and gel pillows.
Unless you consider yourself an expert on pillow manufacturing, you may not realize that most pillows contain petroleum, which is used in the manufacturing process. Is this really something you want to be resting on for 8 hours every day?
It’s hard to believe that a natural product like coconut oil could represent such an improvement in your sleeping experience, but it is really catching on. Something as simple as replacing a portion of that petroleum with coconut oil can do wonders for the end user. For example, the Chili Coconut Memory Foam pillow combines coconut oil with the latest Italian open air flow technology to create an open cell structure that is far more breathable than traditional pillows. In addition to the comfort and support that comes from reactive memory foam, people also enjoy a cooler sleeping surface.
Made with a 100% polyester inner Jersey cover, these pillows also utilize Anti-Acaria technology, protecting them from dust mites, fungus and odors. On the outside, the pillow is covered with organic and eco-friendly Tencel fabric, which is derived from beachwood.
Cloud comfort, coconut style
Coconut oil provides a cooler sleeping surface for memory foam lovers, but what if you prefer a different type of pillow? Fortunately, Chili Technologies thought of everything. The unique qualities of cooling coconut oil are available in a 3-D urethane gel pad as well, which actually absorbs heat from your body and dissipates it throughout the night.
If you’re one of those people who loves the feeling of a cold pillow against your head, and often flips the pillow over during the night to get a “fresh” surface, then this cooling cloud of comfort is for you. In addition to providing a cool surface all night long, the gel pad also relieves pressure from your neck and back, leaving you feeling fully rested when you wake up in the morning. Another benefit of keeping a “cool head” is how it prevents you from perspiring, so a breathable pillow works well for perfect for people with sensitive skin.
Other health benefits of coconut oil
It’s hard to believe that something as vital to good health as coconut oil has been overlooked for so long. The known health benefits of coconut oil extend far beyond the coconut memory foam and gel pad pillows. According to the Coconut Research Center, the lauric acid in coconut oil is helpful in dealing with the bacteria and viruses that cause influenza, herpes, cytomegalovirus and even HIV. It has been extensively used in the traditional Indian medicinal system, known as Ayurveda, and is increasingly available to treat various conditions throughout the world.
Beyond its use in the medical community, coconut oil plays a major role in modern hair and skin care products, supplements for weight loss, immunity and indigestion. It is often connected with the holistic treatment of kidney problems, heart disease, diabetes and cancer, which is primarily due to coconut oil’s antimicrobial, antibacterial and antioxidant properties.
Coconut oil use is rising in the United States
While coconut oil and other coconut products are more widely used in tropical countries like Thailand, Sri Lanka and the Philippines, it faced a stiff challenge over the past 30 years from the corn and soy oil industries. For decades, Americans avoided coconut oil due to its high concentration of saturated fat, but most of them are medium chain triglycerides like lauric, capric and caprylic acid, which are supposed to assimilate well.
If you are up to speed on the latest breakthroughs in healthcare, you may already know about the benefits of coconut oil. Now why not let that knowledge “go to your head” with a Chili coconut pillow?
