I’ve talked about Panda pillows pretty extensively on this site.
Their bamboo memory foam pillow is one of the best pillows you can buy – hands down. It tops my list of Best Pillows and with good reason.
I’m going to explain why this will be the last pillow you buy for at least a decade and why Panda Life is a company that everyone should be behind!
WHO ARE PANDA LIFE?
They specialise in bamboo bed products that ensure you have a sound, comfortable sleep.
Panda Life chose bamboo because it creates bed linen that’s comfy, stylish but also eco-friendly (a huge motivator for the company) and were inspired by bamboo fabrics they found in Southeast Asia.
Even better, Panda Life donate a portion of their profits to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to help maintain the habitats of wild pandas. Pandas are a severely endangered species and desperately need all the help they can get.
Lots of reasons!
I first fell in love with a pair of bamboo socks I bought for work several years ago. They were the softest I’d ever owned.
So naturally, my wife nicked them and I haven’t managed to get them back.
Panda Life have slightly different reasons for choosing bamboo though:
- It’s naturally hypoallergenic. So it won’t cause allergic reactions. If you have eczema, hay fever, or react to dust mites then this is the fabric for you.
- It’s as soft as silk but it’s more durable. Perfect for people with sensitive skin.
- It stays crisp for longer. For that just washed fresh feeling.
- It naturally inhibits bacterial growth. This helps it to stay fresher and cleaner for longer than other fabrics.
- It needs much less ironing than cotton. It is a fabric that naturally doesn’t crease much at all.
- It wicks away moisture (meaning moisture doesn’t stick to you or it).
- It dries twice as fast as other fabrics.
- It allows your skin to breathe naturally. This allows your skin to regulate its temperature and prevents sweat and moisture build up.
One of the biggest reasons, which I mentioned earlier, is that bamboo is environmentally friendly. It’s practically a miracle crop.
It grows around four feet per day – almost as quickly as you can cut it down.
It grows in dense patches, so less space is needed for bamboo plantations.
No harmful chemicals are used to treat bamboo. It requires no fertiliser or pesticides.
Bamboo also releases 35% more oxygen than most other plants. That’s why they use it in their memory foam mattress topper and inside and outside of the Cloud duvet. So not only is bamboo an extremely sustainable resource, it truly does benefit the planet by simply growing.
It even self-regenerates from its roots after being harvested. So it doesn’t even need to be replanted.
It is a funny type of grass and shows strong potential to be an ethical, sustainable, resource of the future.
THE PANDA MEMORY FOAM BAMBOO PILLOW
Filling: Memory Foam
- 30-Day Trial
- 10-Year Guarantee
- Breathable Bamboo Cover
- Great For Back And Side Sleepers
- Great For Neck Pain
- Environmentally Friendly Packaging
WHAT’S IT MADE OF?
Well, visco memory foam.
In my opinion memory foam pillows are the best pillows. The heat of your head makes it soften and mould to your shape, giving you ultimate support. You will almost feel weightless. You sink in a little, but not too much. It’s a medium-firmness, so very comfortable.
Visco memory foam forms and contours to your exact shape, relieving pressure points, preventing back pain, and dampening unwanted movement.
It has a triple layer memory foam design. This ensures that it provides the perfect support for your head and neck. It is extremely soft but still supremely supportive.
With this 3 layer construction it is ideal for all sleeping positions. Whether you’re a side sleeper, front sleeper or back, you will feel like your head is floating.
This memory foam is inside a Panda bamboo pillowcase which is super soft, making it sheer luxury.
This antibacterial bamboo cover is made of 40% bamboo fibre and 60% polyester. Polyester is a brilliant material to combine with bamboo fibre; it is durable, elastic, resists deforming, and dries quickly. It only boosts the hypoallergenic, durable, and bacterial inhibiting properties of the bamboo fibre.
The panda bamboo pillowcase is insulative. With Panda’s temperature regulating technology it will keep your pillow cool in summer and warm in winter.
Really, this soft bamboo pillow cover is wonderful on its own, but combined with the viscose memory foam inner, it’s a dream.
WHO’S THIS PILLOW FOR?
Its dimensions are 60 x 40 x 12cm.
What this means is that it’s comfortable for any type of sleeper: back, side or front. So it’s made for everyone!
They even have smaller pillows for kids in their Panda Kids range.
The only people who I think might have a problem with it would be those with broad shoulders who tend to sleep on their side. To get the height that you need, you might need to put another pillow underneath this one.
However, unless you’re well over six feet tall or a bodybuilder, you should be just fine.
The Panda pillow has been tested to ensure it is safe for toddlers and people with sensitive skin which has earned it the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. Oeko-Tex is an independent fabric research and test institute with the mission of helping you make informed and responsible choices over your textile decisions.
It has also received endorsement from Good Housekeeping and is REACH compliant.
What does this amount to? It is tried and tested by three independent testing and regulatory bodies and received each of their approvals. Science has spoken and the result is quality.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?
The other reason that I recommend this pillow to everyone is its 10-year guarantee.
A usual high-quality pillow will last you around two years, three at the maximum. So the fact that Panda Life has a 10-year guarantee attached to this one is just bananas.
In a good way!
You also get a 30-day trial with this pillow, which is perfect if it’s your first experience with memory foam. You can return it if it’s not for you within the 30 days and get a full refund. It’s risk-free to give it even a one-night trial.
The Panda pillow isn’t even expensive for all the benefits that you get, it’s incredible value for money.
Every order from My Panda Life comes with free delivery and returns within the UK.
Don’t just take my word for it, check out their raving customer reviews.
So, please. For the sake of all the sleeping you haven’t done yet. Get yourself a Panda Memory Foam Pillow. You absolutely won’t regret it!
