Benefits of Silk
Silk is the strongest of natural fibers. 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 its extremely smooth and soft texture proves to be beneficial for those with sensitive skin conditions (e.g. Eczema).
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.
Unlike other materials, silk does not absorb face creams, allowing it to work throughout the night. This enables you to get the most out of both products, leaving you well-rested with radiant skin.
Sleeping on silk pillowcases keeps hair soft and smooth. The natural proteins found in silk prevent the sleeper's hair from drying out and becoming matted overnight, allowing you to wake up to a good hair day; every day.
Silk bedding can be machine washed on a 30°C heat, making it eco-friendly. Wash on a gentle or hand-washable cycle, using a mild, non-biological soap or specialist silk detergent.
