How Low Quality Memory Foam Affect Your Health

How Low-Quality Memory Foam Affects Your Health

Do you think it is too good to be true? Sadly, nothing is too good to be true. Cheap memory foam means low-quality memory foam. Without doing your research, these "too good to be true" deals can slowly turn into your worst nightmare. 

How do you differentiate low-quality memory foam from Ecoden approved quality?

Firstly, low-quality memory foam has low density. This means the memory foam has a shorter product lifespan, and as a result, its shape and feel will dissipate rapidly. When this happens, it will no longer support your back and neck like Ecoden approved quality would. 

Additionally, substances such as glue, plasticizer, and harsh synthetic fabrics are often a core material in these memory foam pillows. 

How does it affect our health?

Well, anything cheap comes with its consequences. Some of these damaging properties include:


As your cheap memory foam loses its contouring properties, you will experience soreness and aches as they would not be able to support proper alignment any longer. The longer this progresses, the condition can quickly turn into chronic pains and progressive inflammations. On the other hand, Ecoden quality-approved memory foam will persistently offer proper and effective sleeping alignment. Confident in our longevity, we offer a 3-year warranty on every purchase of Ecoden so that you can be sure your Ecoden pillow will not lose its shape that easily. 


The heat has been a prominent issue amongst memory foam users. Low-quality manufacturers are not actively looking for solutions. Ever wonder why it is so hard to sleep when your body is hot? This is because the body's circadian form is strongly correlated with the body's temperature. When the body is overheating, melatonin, the sleep hormone, isn't being released to your body, preventing your body from falling asleep. With Ecoden quality-approved memory foam pillow, we actively run independent tests and research into the best solution. We adopted bamboo charcoaled infused memory foam and Tencel covers for its maximum cooling effect. 


Not only does the overheating lead to sleep deprivation, but a pillow that is easily worn out is, no doubt, not comfortable to sleep on. Furthermore, not having enough sleep affects many cognitive functions, such as memory, reaction time, concentration, and learning ability. With Ecoden pillow, you can expect an uninterrupted full night snooze, allowing you to wake up to your best self every day.


All beddings are prone to accumulate dead skin cells, sweat, hair, and other undesirable particles. This dust buildup can lead to the growth of dust mites. Some effects of these mites include trouble breathing, stuffy nose, watery eyes, bronchial asthma, and chronic cough. Even though all bedding accumulates these unwelcoming particles, cheap memory foam is susceptible to it much faster. 


Reputable manufacturers employ certified materials to produce their memory foam. However, with cheap products comes low-quality materials that may be harmful to your health. These toxic materials can contaminate your bedroom air quality. Some of these substances include flame retardants, phthalates, formaldehyde, and toluene. Prolonged exposure to such materials can lead to asthma, endocrine dysfunction, cancer, and damage to the central nervous system. On the other hand, the Ecoden memory foam is CertiPUR-US certified, which prohibits these volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from our memory foams.

Be sure to put your health first and refrain from purchasing cheap memory foam, even if you are on a budget. These cheap memory foam will eventually result in more costs, treating health-related issues. For a certified quality memory foam, check out the Ecoden pillow!
