The Silk Pillowcase Benefits

3 min read. Six benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase.

1. Benefits of Silk Pillowcases - Improved Sleep

There are many benefits of sleeping on an Organic Peace Silk Pillowcase: silk can improve our quality of sleep because of its ultra comfortable feel. The soothing silk fibre is naturally balances moisture and the temperature of our body and adds extra comfort to an already luxurious feel. The power of silk helps you stay warm and cozy in winter and cool in summer.

The all-around luxurious feel and special properties of silk make it an ideal nightly companion to support restful nights and deep slumber. Wake up fresh - not sweaty.

2. Silk Pillowcase Benefits for Hair and Skin

Silk is an organic protein whose pH value matches our skin. The smooth silk fibres create less friction than conventional fabrics and thus help to prevent sleep wrinkles, split ends and a dreaded bed head. Silk does not conduct static electricity, allowing for a completely peaceful sleep.

An added benefit for night-time cosmetic users is that silk won't draw moisture away and won't soak up precious cosmetics from skin and hair during sleep. Read on about how a Silk Pillowcase helps Prevent Wrinkles and Split Ends.

Please be aware that satin is not the same as silk. Satin is the way a fabric is woven and can be made of polyester - whereas our Moonchild Silk is 100% natural organic silk - in an ultra-soft satin weave. Read on about Satin vs Silk.

3. Silk is Hypoallergenic, Antimicrobial and Antifungal

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, mould and bacteria. This makes total sense since the caterpillar protects from those exact enemies during its metamorphosis. The caterpillars use silk for spinning their cocoons which are structures that consist of hydrophobic and semi-impermeable membranes that protect the developing moth residing inside from harsh abiotic and biotic conditions.

4. 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. Its smooth and soft texture is recommended by dermatologists for sensitive skin or symptoms of skin conditions, such as neurodermatitis, acne or eczema.

5. The Durability of Silk

The high-quality Moonchild Silk is strong, durable and can be used for many years if cared for properly. We recommend using Moonchild Delicate Silk Detergent and the hand wash program with a maximum temperature of 30° Celsius. Read on in our article about Silk Care.

6. The Benefits of Organic, Harm-free Peace Silk

The Production of Peace Silk allows silkworms to become the beautiful butterflies they are supposed to become - a process that is unfortunately not a given in the conventional silk industry - which is why we take great care to ensure that Peace Silk matches our high standards for animal rights and sustainability.

This includes ensuring that no pesticides are used for the mulberry trees on which the silkworm feeds and that no harsh chemicals are used in the production process or as a finish. The more natural and pure silk stays - the more of its natural benefits are obtained. It is a win on both sides: no silkworm is harmed and we get the beauty of silk in its most pure and honest form, so we can sleep, look and feel better.
