Everyone deserves to have a little silk in their lives. It provides the ultimate in luxury and comfort.
But more importantly, it’s the health benefits - which are now better understood - that really make a difference.
Pure Mulberry silk is being recommended the world over by dermatologists, hair stylists, beauty experts and well-being professionals.
Anti-ageing for all
Silk offers many anti-ageing benefits over its cheaper alternatives. For example, cotton absorbs moisture and draws hydration from your skin. It also soaks up night creams and lotions.
Whereas pure Mulberry silk is significantly less absorbent, so your face creams stay on you - not your pillow. Your complexion remains intact, and because of silk's naturally smooth surface, delicate facial skin doesn’t rub or drag against the pillowcase, meaning fewer sleep creases and wrinkles.
Silk causes less friction than cotton or polyester, so you'll notice a smoother, less-tangled mane when you wake. And as silk is less absorbent, your hair's natural moisture will be retained, reducing frizz. Great for long, afro, curly or knot-prone hair.
Problem Skin Saviour For All Ages
As a natural, hypo-allergenic and anti-bacterial fibre, Mulberry silk offers resistance to common allergens. Bacteria is less likely to breed on a silky surface, compared with cotton. As a result, this greatly helps those suffering from acne, psoriasis and eczema.
As silk is both hypo-allergenic and anti-bacterial, it provides a natural resilience to dust mites and mould, alleviating some of the common triggers of asthma.
It contains a natural protein called sericin that reduces the possibility of an allergic reaction. Therefore, pure Mulberry silk pillowcases are a healthy and safe choice for those with allergies
Natural Heat Regulation
Many people who suffer from night sweats have benefited from sleeping on silk thanks to its naturally-occurring thermoregulation qualities. This means the silk fibre provides warmth in the winter, yet stays cool in the summer.
Mulberry silk pillowcases can be a much-needed source of comfort for women during menopause. Because silk is a natural fibre, it helps skin to breathe easily and keep the body cool during those dreaded night sweats (which around 60 per cent of women experience).
Having a silk layer next to your head is so much better for you than the heat and static nature of man-made fabrics.
Minimizes Further Hair-Loss
The soft, creaseless surface of silk causes less chafing, fewer hair tangles and consequent hair loss. Bald or shaven heads, or people with very fine hair will appreciate even more the soft and delicate touch of pure, fine silk next to them.
Skin Health For 40+
The super-smooth surface of silk allows your skin to gently glide across its natural fibres, reducing drag and the dreaded facial sleep-crease. As we age, these sleep-creases can deepen, and linger for longer - particularly for side-sleepers.
In summary, people of all ages can benefit from adding a little silk in their lives - it can bring a lot of good.
