On the market today, we can find a variety of pillows made of various materials and shapes. And among them, my personal favourite choice of pillow type is the latex pillow.
The latex pillow is unique in that it provides effective support and bounce while being 100% natural, durable, naturally antifungal, and hypoallergenic.
Overview of Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow
Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow is made of one solid piece of latex foam with a superior bouncy feel. This characteristic is best for side sleepers as it helps to maintain the head, neck and spine aligned ergonomically.
The latex core is infused with Coolmax Cooling Gel and has hundreds of perforated small holes to ensure an optimum cooling effect when we rest our heads on it.

The Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow is constructed with the best possible material you can find for a pillow. The core of the pillow is made of natural latex which is infused with cooling gel.
The dimension of the Origin Latex Pillow is 65cm x 40cm x 13cm, which is equal to about 5 inches of loft thickness.
The pillow cover is made of Tencel Fabric. The best part is it can be removed and washable with a washing machine. Tencel fabric is soft, cushy and feels good to touch.
On top of that, the pillow is CertiPUR-US certified. It means that they are low VOC and totally free of harmful chemicals.
This combination of superior quality materials is guaranteed to provide sleepers with the ultimate comfort while sleeping and also provide the best cooling effect in Malaysia’s hot and humid climate.
Features and performance
One of the main benefits of Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow is it provides good support for the head and neck. The pillow is firm but not hard because the latex core is bouncy. It helps to properly align your head and neck with the spine.
Let’s check out the review breakdown of various aspects of the Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow the pillow:
The Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow is a medium-firm pillow. As mentioned many times, it is very bouncy and provides great support to your head and neck.
This type of pillow is best for side sleepers. But back sleepers will find this pillow fairly comfortable too.
However, those who prefer a plushier or sunk-in feeling pillow may not like this pillow. This will take some time to get used to if one has always been using a soft pillow.
The Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow is great at maintaining its shape. So, it is not as good as a memory foam pillow when it comes to conforming to the head and neck.
For those who prefer a pillow that is able to contour for the head and neck, you can check out the comparison of Origin Arctic Pro Hybrid Pillow below.
Latex itself is cooler material than memory foam. The latex material does not retain body heat.
Furthermore, Origin uses latex infused with Cooling Gel and has perforated holes for improved ventilation.
Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow is excellent at keeping the temperature low. It can make sure you feel cool all night long.
Latex pillow is known to be more durable than memory foam pillow. Both types of pillows are very durable but latex pillows are usually more lasting.
The Tencel fabric pillow cover is removable and washable. This way, your pillow can stay clean and fresh for a long time, without any issues.
The initial latex odour is the only downside I noticed with Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillows. The smell is mild so you don’t have to worry too much about it.
And I am not surprised since this problem occurs with most latex pillows. The smell will eventually go away after a few weeks.
In the past few weeks, I have slept on the Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillows. The pillow has been very comfortable for me.
This is a firmer and more supportive type of pillow. It’s no problem for me to adapt to the Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow pillow since I’ve always used a medium-firm pillow.
It helps to ease the strain on my shoulders and keep the head and spine straight when I sleep on my side. At the same time, it cradles my head and neck when I sleep on my back.
This pillow is very versatile, whether you sleep on your side, back or stomach. As a side sleeper myself, I strongly recommend it.
The Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillows make a great combo with the Origin Hybrid Mattress.
Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow vs Arctic Pro Hybrid Pillow
Although both pillows are coming from the Origin brand, these two pillows are very different and they provide a totally different sleeping experience.
The Arctic Pro Hybrid pillow is a medium soft pillow, which is mainly made up of hundreds of Origin Arctic Cubes. Origin Artic Cubes is Origin’s signature cooling-gel infused CloudCool Memory Foam. Hence, this pillow gives a sunk-in sensation and provides moderate contouring.
The Arctic Pro Hybrid Pillow is better suited for back sleepers. Back sleepers will appreciate the Arctic Pro Hybrid Pillow, which conforms to the head and neck and provides appropriate support and comfort.
Origin Arctic Pro Hybrid Pillow uses a Polar Silk Tencel which feels very smooth and cool, whereby Coolmax Latex Pillow uses Tencel Fabric which feels soft and fluffier.
Not only that, the Origin Arctic Pro Hybrid Pillow is hypoallergenic, anti-parasitic, and antimicrobial. Therefore, it is completely safe for people with allergies, including children and the elderly.
In short, I recommend the Arctic Pro Hybrid Pillow for back sleepers and users who like plush pillows. And I recommend Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow for side sleepers who enjoy firm support for the head and neck while sleeping.
Both Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow and Arctic Pro Hybrid Pillow come with 2 years warranty and a 7-day risk-free trial. The 2 years warranty is one of the longest warranties you’ll find on any other pillow brand. On the Origin website, you can find more information about the terms and conditions.
