Benefits of Silk Pillowcases
Benefits of Silk Pillowcases - Improved Sleep
There are many benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase: silk can improve sleep quality because of its ultra-comfortable feel. The soft silk fiber naturally balances the moisture and temperature of our skin and adds extra comfort to an already luxurious feel. The power of silk helps you stay warm and cozy in winter and refreshingly cools in summer.
The overall luxurious feel and unique properties of silk make it an ideal nightly companion that supports restful nights and a deep sleep state.
Silk Pillowcase Benefits for Hair and Skin
Silk is an organic protein whose pH level matches our skin. The smooth silk fibers create less friction than conventional fabrics; As an ultra-smooth fabric, silk pillowcases won’t bind or catch hair the way manufactured materials can. Hair glides on silk rather than rubs. It thus helps to prevent sleep wrinkles, split ends, and a dreaded bed head. Silk does not conduct static electricity, allowing for an entirely peaceful sleep. An added benefit for night-time cosmetic users is that silk won't draw moisture away from the skin and helps keep precious cosmetics on skin and hair during sleep.
Silk is Hypoallergenic, Anti-microbial
For allergy sufferers, a great benefit is that silk is hypoallergenic and therefore does not attract dust mites and acts as a natural fungal repellant. Silk won't attract bugs, mold, and bacteria, making total sense since the silkworm weaves the silk as a cocoon around itself to protect from those exact enemies during its metamorphosis.
Silk helps soothe Allergies, Acne, Neurodermatitis or Eczema
Silk is naturally dust and stain-resistant and therefore an ideal bed companion for those with allergies or asthma. Dermatologists recommend its smooth and soft texture for sensitive skin or those with skin conditions such as neurodermatitis, acne, or eczema.
The Durability of Silk
The high-quality Slipintosoft silk is strong, durable, and can be used for many years if cared for properly. We recommend using hand wash or a gentle program with a maximum temperature of 30° Celsius. Read on in our article about Silk Care.

One recommendation is silk pillowcases made from Mulberry Silk with a traditional weave, feeling incredibly soft, smooth, comfortable, and breathable. Although silk pillowcases may be a little pricy, your hair and skin will thank you for them.
