Silk Benefits

Beyond the exquisite beauty and luxurious feeling of silk…

More than just a luxury item, silk pillowcases create a wonderful sleeping atmosphere. Naturally hypoallergenic, silk sheets and silk pillowcases provide natural health and beauty benefits to help you sleep soundly and wake refreshed and rejuvenated.  

Naturally Retains Moisture for a Youthful, Glowing Complexion

Other materials draw moisture from your face as you sleep at night, but the dense weave of the silky smooth fibers help keep that moisture close to your skin. The moisture retention benefits of silk pillowcases double whenever you use nightly creams. With cotton, most of the cream will be absorbed by the pillowcase, but with a silk pillowcase, your skin will absorb the benefits. Not only are you able to use your creams more effectively, but even if you don’t use nightly cream, hydrated skin cells show fewer lines and wrinkles than dry skin. Although a silk pillowcase isn’t a magic wand, it definitely has properties which will provide your skin with more luminosity and health than other materials.  

Some studies suggest that “morning wrinkles” (caused by bunched up pillowcases) can eventually cause premature, permanent lines. Beauty experts suggest that one way to prevent those premature wrinkles is to use a silk pillowcase. A silk pillowcase is much gentler on your face and is less likely to bunch up on the pillow while you sleep.

Naturally Hypoallergenic and Perfect for Allergy Sufferers

Allergy sufferers, this silk bedding benefit is for you. Silk sheets are naturally hypoallergenic and are among the top bedding choice for asthmatics and allergy sufferers. Because of silk’s natural protein structure and other natural substances, pure mulberry silk sheets repel various environmental allergens, including dust mites, mold, mildew, bed bugs and bacteria. Because our silk is free of added chemicals, silk sheets make great bedding for those with sensitive skin.

Naturally Gorgeous, Healthy Hair

Many use silk scarves to protect their hair at night, but if you prefer a more comfortable way to receive silk’s hair benefits, use a silk pillowcase. Stylists and beauty experts around the world agree that using silk pillowcases helps keep hair soft, moisturized and free of pesky tangles. Not only does a cotton pillowcase absorb moisture from hair, it also bunches and creates tangles. When you use a silk pillowcase, hair will easily slide over the soft material, resulting in smoother, healthier hair.  

Naturally Keeps You Warm in the Winter and Cool in the Summer

Silk has natural temperature-regulating properties that give it the paradoxical ability to simultaneously cool and warm. Silk sheets are truly an all-climate fabric. They keep you comfortably cool in the summer and cozy and warm in the winter.  

Silk naturally regulates body temperature so that your body retains its warmth during cold weather.  Pure silk sheets also have moisture wicking properties which help to keep you dry and comfortable in the warmer months. Silk sheets are very breathable and are recommended by women health experts to alleviate hot flashes.

Finally Get a Good Night’s Sleep, Naturally

It’s estimated that nearly 40% of Americans have trouble getting a good night’s rest. Bedding that bunches up, irritates your skin, or harbors dust mites definitely doesn’t help those statistics. Silk naturally glides over your skin, regulating your body temperature and repelling allergens, which helps you get a better night’s sleep.

There are rumors out there suggesting that silk is hard to care for and launder. Those rumors are simply not true.

Silk pillowcases are relatively easy to care for.

Silk may appear delicate and dainty, but despites its ethereal appearance, silk is strong and robust. Silk is the strongest known natural fiber and its tensile strength easily competes with steel yarn. The smooth surface of pure silk resists soils and odors.

Silk pillowcases can be machined washed (in cold water) with clear, delicate detergent (like a wool wash) on the delicate cycle. Then air dry. 

Beyond its exquisite beauty and luxury item appeal, pure silk offers many advantages over other bedding materials. Browse our selection of 100% pure mulberry silk pillowcases which are available in over 28 colors and prints, in standard, queen and king sizes.

Silk pillowcases are much more than a mere luxury item or bedroom decoration, they are an investment in your health and a powerful natural aid in your beauty regimen.
