What a Talalay Pillow Really Is

A Sleep Natural Bamboo Breeze Pillow made of Talalay latex can improve the quality of your sleep.

What a Talalay Pillow Really Is

If you’ve been trying to find ways to improve your sleep, you owe it to yourself to look into a Talalay pillow and mattress. Latex is growing in popularity in bedding products because of its pressure relieving comfort and durability, but the process used to make Talalay latex is what makes it better than any other rubber product.

What Goes into a Talalay Pillow and Mattress

Latex begins as liquid tapped from a rubber tree. To make Dunlop latex, which is the type of latex used in in many sleep products, liquid latex is whipped into a batter and simply poured into a mold to create a pillow or mattress layer.

Talalay latex goes through that same whipping process but is then flash frozen at -20° F which locks particles into a more even distribution. In pillows and mattresses, this provides many benefits over other bedding materials.

Why Talalay Latex is Better

Here are some of the benefits of that extra step that creates Talalay.


The cells in Talalay latex are 50% larger than those in Dunlop, allowing more than twice the amount of airflow. Tired of waking up in a pool of sweat?Aa Talalay pillow and mattress will keep you cooler and drier than Dunlop and other conventional bedding materials.

Better Bounce

Memory foam has a “sinking in” feeling which many people don’t like. Latex has a more buoyant quality for springiness that people often prefer. Plus, because Talalay has a better distribution of open cells, the bounce is better.   

Better Pressure Relief

Are you searching for a memory foam alternative to relieve pain and pressure while you sleep? You won’t be disappointed by a Talalay latex mattress. Talalay’s resilience lets it conform to your body better than Dunlop for the ultimate pressure relief.

Better Support

It’s impossible to sleep well on a squishy, saggy mattress or pillow. Foam bedding materials can’t offer the firm support you need for your neck and back, but Talalay’s buoyant, firm quality keeps your spine in alignment for pain-free sleep.
