Gel pillows refer to any pillow that incorporates the use of gel within its design. The gel helps reduce the common problem of overheating in bed, caused when the body drops in temperature in preparation for sleep. This natural hormonal response causes heat to transfer from the sleeper to their bedding, creating an uncomfortable increase in temperature within the bed. The heat can cause night sweats and prevent the sleeper from getting a good night's rest.
Including gel within the pillow's design can help manage this temperature increase by drawing heat away from the sleeper and neutralising the heat that would typically be held within the bed. Several different pillow designs utilise the cooling power of gel. The three main gel pillow designs are:
Gel pillows are affected by the ambient temperature in the room. For example, if the room you are sleeping in is sweltering or you live in a hot climate, that heat can transfer to the bedding and reduce the effectiveness of the cooling gel.
Gel pillows can emit an unpleasant smell when first opened, called off-gassing. However, these volatile organic emissions (or VOC emissions as they are also known) will usually dissipate after a day or two.
