When was the last time you washed your pillow? With the self-cleaning Alpha Pillow 2, you won’t need to


It’s a common belief that a pillow’s only role is to provide comfort and support. However, the pillow has more than one job. It needs to maintain posture, optimal temperature, and keep your skin healthy. Most pillows, while comfortable, become cesspools for germs and bacteria from constant skin contact, sweat, drool (yes, that’s right), and your breath. These germs fester in your pillow, causing them to get dirtier over time, so much so that your pillow can be the leading cause of your acne. While it isn’t particularly feasible to wash your pillow ever 2-3 days, the Alpha Pillow has a better solution.

Realizing that there’s more to a pillow than just being a soft bag with cotton inside, Ivana Lowchareonkul designed the Alpha Pillow. In its second iteration (after a pretty popular 1st version on Kickstarter), the Alpha Pillow 2 tackles the various parameters a pillow must maintain to give you ‘healthy sleep’ – this includes support, softness, breathability, cooling, and the ability to self-sanitize. The Alpha Pillow 2’s design starts with a bamboo-charcoal-infused foam mass, which apart from providing the benefits of memory foam, also uses activated carbon to neutralize microorganisms and toxins. The foam pillow comes with ergonomically placed air-cells that promote breathability, and an aqua-gel membrane on one side of the pillow allows it to function as the ‘perpetually cool side’, keeping your face cool as you sleep. While the carbon-infused foam does a pretty standup job of keeping your pillow free of germs and microorganisms, the Alpha Pillow’s silver-fabric cover forms the first line of defense, destroying bacteria, viruses, and molds before they can even propagate. The pillow itself comes with a bamboo fabric cover, followed by a unique fabric made from silver fibers that are lab-tested to be incredibly efficient at self-sanitizing the pillow. Silver emits ions that have the ability to break down micro-organisms (a feature that’s been extensively used to battle the pandemic). The pillow’s outer fabric comes with actual silver fibers, woven together to give the soft, comfortable effect of satin, resulting in a pillow that’s comfortable as well as healthy.

The Alpha Pillow 2 accommodates a variety of sleep postures. Whether you’re a back, side, or stomach-sleeper, the pillow’s foam construction gives you the softness and support you need, while helping keep your spine aligned as you sleep. It comes with a reversible design too, offering a warm side for the winters, and a cool side for the rest of the year, and the ergonomically placed air-cells that enable airflow. No matter which side you choose, the Alpha Pillow 2 gives you a clean and comfortable experience. Along with the traditional pillow’s softness and support, it wicks moisture, keeping you sweat-free, and actively self-sanitizes, remaining clean and germ-free at all times. The Alpha Pillow 2 ships in two sizes (a regular and a king-size), and you can even grab yourself optional silver-infused bedsheets and pillowcases too… just in case you’re not a fan of changing and washing bed-linen!
