Benefits of Silk Pillowcases - improve your sleep
There are many benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase: silk can improve the quality of sleep because of its ultra comfortable feel. The soothing silk fibre is naturally balancing 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 all-around luxurious feel and special 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 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 wont draw moisture away from skin and helps keep precious cosmetics on skin and hair during sleep. 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.
Silk is hypoallergenic, anti-microbial and anti-fungal
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. Which makes total sense since the silkworm weaves the silk as a cocoon around itself in order to protect from those exact enemies during its metamorphosis.
Silk helps soothe allergies, acne, neurodermatitis or eczema
Benefits 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 those with skin conditions such as neurodermatitis, acne or eczema.
The durability of silk
The high quality Moonchild silk is strong, durable, and can be used for many years if cared properly. We recommend using the Moonchild Delicate Silk Bath and to use the hand wash or gentle program with a maximum temperature of 30° Celsius.

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-win on both sides: no silkworm is harmed and we get the beauty of silk in its most pure and honest form.
