True allergies to goose and duck down are quite rare. Most people who believe they are allergic to down are actually allergic to dust or dust mites. High quality downs are put through rigorous cleaning processes which finish with special treatments to ensure the down is hypoallergenic. However, if you are concerned about allergies please consider our 100% polyester Hypoallergenic MicroMax® Down Alternative Pillow. And in all cases, follow our care instructions to ensure your pillows remain clean, fresh and hypoallergenic year after year.
