Why switch to silk?

Silk is widely known as one of the most luxurious and highly desired fabrics in the world. So what are the health benefits of silk and why is it considered one of the most luxurious forms of bedding?

We spend around a third of our lifetime sleeping and the majority of us sleep on a cotton pillowcase every night. While cotton may feel soft, it is more abrasive against our skin and hair compared to silk fabric. This can lead to cotton creases on our face each night (leading to wrinkles over time) and hair becoming tangled and tugged as you toss during the night, causing hair breakage.

Switching to a silk pillowcase instead has a number of health benefits for your skin, hair and the quality of your sleep.


Effortless skincare

  • Hydrated skin – Silk fibres are significantly less absorbent than cotton, meaning that a silk pillowcase absorbs less moisture from your skin overnight, keeping your skin hydrated while you sleep.

  • Anti-crease – the super soft texture of silk prevents creases appearing on your skin in the morning. As silk reduces friction against your skin, a silk pillowcase also prevents tugging on your skin during the night, which can help reduce signs of wrinkles over time.

  • Maximise your skincare routine – As silk is less absorbent than cotton, a silk pillowcase or silk eye mask will also help to keep any overnight creams you may use stay where they belong - on your face! 

  • Great for sensitive skin: Endorsed by dermatologists, silk is mulberry silk is a natural fabric, hypoallergenic and non-abrasive against your skin, making silk products suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.


Healthy, hydrated hair

  • Healthy hair – Cotton may feel soft, however its surface is more abrasive than silk, so when it rubs on your hair during the night it can cause breakage and hair damage. The natural properties of silk reduce friction against hair to keep your hair smooth and prevent damage. This means that our silk pillowcases and silk scrunchies help to keep your hair healthy both throughout the day and whilst you sleep!

  • Anti-frizz – Pillowcases made from cotton result in more friction which can lead to hair tugging and pulling in the night. 100% Silk pillowcases and silk scrunchies reduce friction against hair to help prevent frizz. Silk pillowcases have even been shown to help your hairstyles last longer for this reason.

  • Hydrated hair - silk's natural properties helps to retain moisture in the hair as it is less absorbent than materials like cotton.

  • Innovative hairstyling using silk - switch to a silk heatless hair curler for heat free curls, which ensures healthier and stronger hair over time. Style your hair using a pure silk headband to reduce hair breakage and pulling during the day.
