Does what it says on the tinVerified ReviewerGreat pillow protector, I like the fact it’s got a zip and it feels nice too. Little expensive is the only downside I’d say.4
Not so cool pillow protector. Avoid.Verified ReviewerAs a lady of a certain age, night time ‘power surges / personal summers’ are increasing, so when I discovered this cooling range of bed protection in Ikea, I was over the moon! I decided to try the most cost effective item from the range, the pillow protector, at £15, compared to the £8 one which I’d gone in to buy ! .... it felt noticeably cool to the touch in comparison to a regular pillow protector in store , I was excited to trial it at home.
What a disappointing utter waste of money that turned out to be. It felt cool until I rested on it, within minutes it was warm and so I resorted back to the mad pillow swapping and turning that I’d always done ! ... it’s silky top cover also means that the blooming pillow keeps slipping out of my pillow case too ! I’m so pleased I didn’t buy the mattress protector too, although if it’s silky too at the very least I could have hoped it would mean my snoring partner may at least have slithered from the bed!! ... if it weren’t a personal use item, used during a pandemic, I would have taken it back for a refund ! Don’t waste your money !1
Lovely and cool both sidesVerified ReviewerNice and cool on both sides. Zip fastening, very well made5
Our take on polyester
Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions.
The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products.
In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.
Virgin vs recycled polyester
Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products.
When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps.
Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.
Some challenges with recycled polyester
Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments).
With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.
Only recycled polyester
IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030.
We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester.
We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.
At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers.
By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.
What is recycled polyester?
When we create products from recycled polyester, PET bottles and other sources of polyester get a new life in products like textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. When using them, you get to enjoy exactly the same quality and function as with virgin polyester products. And naturally, they’re just as clean and safe in every way. And perhaps the very best part – you contribute to using less new raw materials too.
Extend the life of your pillow
At IKEA, the quality of our products always comes first and pillow protectors are no exception. Our dedicated team of product developers work hard to ensure they meet our highest standards. This includes extensive testing of the comfort and durability. We also made sure to use long-lasting and washable materials so your pillow protector can keep your favourite pillow fresh and comfy for a long time.
Do you often feel too warm while sleeping?
Sleep is essential for our bodies and minds but sometimes it is disturbed when we wake up feeling either cold, or warm and clammy. That’s something our products with cooling effect can help out with. The filling in these products reacts to your body temperature by absorbing and storing body heat when you’re hot, and transferring it back if you get cold. This means your body temperature stays even and pleasantly cool, and you’ll have a more restful night’s sleep.
