Sleep on a Pure 19 Momme Silk Pillowcase from Mulberry Park Silks!
For the ultimate night’s beauty sleep, you should be sleeping on a pure silk pillowcase! Long a secret of beauty insiders, sleeping on silk has gone mainstream. Using a silk pillowcase for hair, skin, and wellness is a great idea. A pure silk pillowcase from Mulberry Park Silks can help prevent tangles, knots and bedhead; minimize sleep wrinkles; and keep hair and skin well moisturized. It is truly an anti aging pillowcase! On top of that, natural mulberry silk is soft, smooth, and an absolute dream to sleep on—a true luxury silk experience.
Let’s take a look at what makes a pillowcase of all-natural mulberry silk so great for your health, beauty, and overall well-being:
Why choose pure mulberry silk?
Silk is a natural, protein-based fiber that works to keep hair well-moisturized and conditioned. In fact, many salon-quality hair (and skin) products contain silk protein, or sericin. Along with helping your hair and skin retain natural moisture, sleeping on a real silk pillowcase helps tame tangles and frizz; encourages regrowth of fine or thinning hair; reduces friction on the skin to minimize sleep wrinkles; and regulates body temperature. Silk is also non irritating to even the most sensitive skin. All Mulberry Park Silks pillowcases, sheets, and accessories are made from 100 percent pure mulberry silk of the highest grade in the market (6A). Our luxury silk products have a soft, charmeuse weave like the highest quality hotel silk. Our pillowcases feature a generous eight-inch envelope closure to hold your pillow securely in place; you can comfortably use our silk pillowcase for memory foam pillows, down/feather pillows, and down substitute pillows.
The many benefits of sleeping on silk
Silk prevents bedhead and tangles. If you wake up with a case of bedhead, your cotton pillowcase is likely the culprit. Even the smoothest cotton contains tiny fibers that can snag and pull your hair when you sleep. Silk is entirely friction free, allowing your hair to move across the pillow (especially great if you want to preserve your smooth blowout). A silk pillowcase also minimizes breakage and tames frizz, which makes it ideal for curly, wiry, or color-treated hair which tend to be more delicate.
Silk encourages hair regrowth. The friction free surface and natural protein of a silk pillowcase make it equally great for thin, fragile, or regrowing hair. In fact, silk pillowcases are often recommended for individuals who are experiencing chemotherapy related hair loss because they are naturally moisturizing and gentle on newly regrowing hair. Similarly, many new mothers also experience postpartum related hair loss and regrowth. Technically, this is not “loss,” but rather the shedding of hair that the pregnant individual did NOT lose during pregnancy. Nevertheless, many postpartum women report losing significant amounts of hair in the months after delivery. The hair eventually regrows, but it can be a long process. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase can protect and encourage fragile regrowth.
Silk can prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Waking up with the dreaded sleep wrinkles is nobody’s idea of a beautiful morning. When you sleep on a standard cotton pillow, your face is compressed and experiences friction against the tiny cotton fiber. With a silk pillowcase, your face glides smoothly across the surface, thus minimizing the pressure and pulling that lead to sleep creases (and eventually to wrinkles).
Silk is non irritating. Looking for a great acne pillowcase? Or perhaps you suffer from other sensitive skin conditions. Silk is inherently non irritating and a great option for anyone who has sensitive skin.
Silk is naturally temperature regulating for maximum comfort. Silk is a breathable fabric that keeps you cool in warm temperatures, warm in cool temperatures, and sleeping comfortably all year ‘round in any conditions. Silk is also naturally moisture wicking to keep “hot” sleepers more comfortable.
Silk is safe. Silk is a natural fiber. At Mulberry Park Silks, we take the extra step of having all of our silk independently certified to be free from any harmful toxins and chemicals through every phase of production.
Why Is Pure Silk Better Than Cotton?
Cotton is a popular fiber for pillowcases. Although cotton is a natural fiber -- which is good -- it is quite different from silk. Most significantly, cotton is by its very nature absorbent; this means it can pull moisture from hair and skin, and contribute to drying it out. In contrast, protein-based silk helps encourage moisture retention. Natural mulberry silk fabric is also soft and gentle on hair; cotton, on the other hand, can have small fibers that tug on hair and cause breakage. When it comes to finding the perfect fabric to lay your head on, organic silk is the clear winner over cotton.
How Does Natural Silk Compare to Satin?
This is a topic that causes a lot of confusion to people who aren’t well-versed in textile terminology. Silk is a natural, protein-based fiber that has special properties; all-natural mulberry silk is soft, smooth, and non-irritating. Satin, on the other hand, is a catch-all term that describes a type of weave in fabric made from polyester or nylon, which are derived from petroleum. Apart from being “smooth,” satin has NONE of the essential beauty and wellness properties of silk. Only choose a pure mulberry organic silk pillowcase, sheet set, or accessories..
