Product Materials and Care

bbhugme pregnancy pillow

At bbhugme, our product designs are based on years of education, research, and clinical experience. We have selected specific materials to bring you features such as adjustability, pressure relief, and ultimate comfort.

When you shop with us, you can rest easy knowing all our products are certified by Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX Class 1, one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. Our pillows are certified by their Class 1, which includes products for babies and has the strictest requirements and limit values.

 


Inner pillows

  • The inner-pillow fabric is composed of 85% nylon and 15% spandex.
  • Our inner pillows are filled with pressure-relieving microbeads that hug your body and allow for the pillow's unique adjustable firmness and shape versatility.
  • For our microbead materials, we are currently transitioning from Biofoam® beads to expanded polystyrene (EPS) beads. This means that during 2024, some of our pillows are filled with Biofoam beads and some are filled with EPS beads.Biofoam is produced from plant and vegetable waste and is certified industrially compostable in accordance with EN 13432. EPS is a material with natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and is tested and certified per applicable standards.
  • NOTE: The inner pillows are intentionally not filled to 100% to allow for adjustable firmness. Over time, the microbeads inside the pillow may slightly decompress or flatten due to the collapse of tiny air pockets, a natural process common to products using similar beads. Typically, a 5-15% decompression occurs over a year of regular use, which is one of the reasons why we provide silicon Pebbles for adjustment. Some decompression is normal and should not affect the functionality of the pillow. However, If you think your pillow has decompressed more than expected, please send us a photo of your inner pillow without the cover so we can assess its condition.
  • If you have questions regarding the inner pillow’s microbead filling, please contact customer service at hello@bbhugme.com.

How to care for your inner pillow: Do NOT machine wash. If you need to clean the inner pillow, please spot clean with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Do not tumble dry. Allow the bbhugme inner pillow to dry in a well-ventilated area. When the pillow has dried, shake and fluff it to help your pillow regain its shape.
