Benefits of Silk
Silk is the strongest of natural fibres. It contains natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. It also contains natural cellular albumen which speeds up the metabolism of skin cells.
As it is a breathable fabric and a natural temperature regulator, silk helps the body retain heat in cold weather while excess heat is expelled in warm weather, helping your body maintain a comfortable, natural temperature.
Silk is hypoallergenic; it does not attract dust mites and is a natural fungal repellant. As it does not conduct static electricity, sleeping on silk helps reduce hair breakage.
Unlike cotton, silk does not draw moisture away from your skin and hair, but encourages a proper moisture balance, while it's extremely smooth and soft texture proves to be beneficial for those with sensitive skin conditions (e.g. Eczema).
Silk and your skin
Silk can make an amazing difference to the appearance of your skin. The natural material has the ability to make wrinkles appear smoother and won’t leave behind any unsightly creases or marks.
Silk pillowcases and your hair
Sleeping on silk pillowcases is a lovely way to give your hair some extra care. The natural proteins in the 100% mulberry silk will help to stop your hair from drying out overnight. This prevents bed hair and morning frizz, makes your morning haircare routine more pleasant and can give you the gift of a good hair day, every day.
