Recommended by dermatologists, hairdressers, makeup artists and health professionals, the use of silk has been among the best kept secrets within the beauty industry because of it’s amazing benefits to both hair and skin.
There are many benefits of our pure mulberry silk and we have identified the most important properties below. You can also read our blog on why your hair and skin will thank you for making the switch to silk.
Many of us spend hundreds if not thousands of pounds on our annual skin care regimes, but after sleeping on a cotton pillowcase all night long it’s inevitable that sometimes we wake up with those pesky skin creases which often take a few hours to fade. On top of this, over time skin gradually begins to lose elasticity and that ability to ‘bounce back’ resulting in these lines and creases becoming more pronounced. Silk fabric creates 43% less friction than cotton, which in turn releases pressure from your skin and allows you to wake up with a more healthy and radiant glow.
The natural properties of our 22 momme silk pillowcases which include a super smooth surface helps drastically reduce friction between your hair and the pillow. As a result sleeping on our high quality silk helps prevent unnecessary damage to your locks including and preventing split ends, dryness and dreaded morning frizz!
Silk absorbs significantly less moisture from our skin as we sleep, when compared to cotton, which means it doesn't soak up your expensive skin creams giving them more chance to work. This means sleeping on a silk pillowcase gives you a real beauty sleep, so you wake up feeling and looking more fresh-faced.
Maintain healthier hair
Silk Works pure silk scrunchies are designed to reduce the usual kinks and creases that regular hair ties create. By creating less grip and pressure around your precious locks these silky soft hair accessories are a must-have for reducing breakage, split ends and have even been known to prevent hair loss.
Relief for skin irritation
Silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics thanks to its natural protein structure, making it ideal for those with sensitive or allergy prone skin. Studies also show that sleeping on pure silk can actively reduce acne breakouts since the silky natural fibres don’t clog pores and stays cleaner than cotton for longer since silk is naturally inhospitable to bed bugs, fungus and dust mites.
Our 100% mulberry silk pillow cases have natural temperature regulating properties which maintain body temperature throughout the night enabling the body to keep cool during the summer and warm in the winter months. This occurs thanks to the air which is captured between the silk threads creating an isolation effect. Furthermore being a naturally breathable fabric the proteins in silk quickly emit any sweat it absorbs meaning they are also far more hygienic than the cotton alternative. As a result Silk Works pillowcases are the perfect luxury bedtime companion for anytime of the year if you’re looking to embrace a higher quality and overall more comfortable night’s sleep.
