MEMORY FOAM PILLOWS. Best known brand in the world is Tempur and in Australia the Dunlopillo Therapillo brand is growing fast. Marketing hype always talks about it being developed by NASA scientists for the comfort of astronauts during space travel. In practical terms, the difference to other foam pillows is that the recovery is very slow, with no bounce. You can sink your hand in and the indentation will remain for a few seconds. They are comfortable in that they compress in all the right places, with good support.
Until recently Dunlopillo used to sell around 170,000 Talalay process natural latex pillows each year in Australia. They were the best and most popular brand by miles. Competitors like Dentons, Target and TLC saw an opportunity and nibbled at their heels with similar product, slightly cheaper. As they began losing share, Dunlopillo introduced a new range of more profitable visco memory foam pillows under their umbrella Therapillo brand. Product development and marketing focused on the new golden goose.
