The Benefits of Silk

Quality of Sleep

Silk can improve the quality of sleep because it makes you feel ultra comfortable. The soothing silk fibre is naturally moisture and temperature balancing. This adds to its already luxurious feel. Silk helps you stay warm and cozy in winter and refreshingly cools in summer.

The all over luxurious feel and special features make silk an ideal nightly companion that supports restful nights and a deep sleep state.

Benefits of Silk for Skin and Hair

Silk is an organic protein whose pH-level matches those of skin. The smooth silk fibres cause much less friction than conventional fabrics and thus prevent sleep wrinkles, split ends and a bed head. Silk does not conduct static electricity.

Silk wont draw moisture away from skin and keeps precious cosmetics on skin and hair during sleep. 

Hypoallergenic - hygienic 

Silk is hypoallergenic and therefore does not attract dust mites and acts as a natural fungal repellant. Bugs, mold and bacteria are the only ones who do not like silk. 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 is naturally dust and stain resistant and therefore an ideal bed companion for those with allergies such as asthma. Its smooth and soft texture is recommended by dermatologists for sensitive skin or those with skin conditions such as neurodermatitis, acne or eczema.

Durable

The high quality Moonchild silk is strong and durable and can be used for many years, if cared properly. We recommend to use the Moonchild Delicate Silk Bath only and to wash with hand wash /program on maximum 30°. Read more in our article about Silk Care.

Peace Silk

The production of Peace Silk allows the silkworm to become the beautiful butterfly it is supposed to become - a process that is not given in the conventional silk industry, unfortunately. Peace Silk matches our high standards for animal rights and sustainability.

No pesticides are used for the mulberry trees and no harsh chemicals are used in the process of production or as a finish. It is a win on both sides: no silkworm is being harmed and you get a silk in its most pure and honest form, without the nasty stuff that never belonged to this natural fibre in the first place.
