Sleep on a soft, silky cloud.
Shhh… we’re here to let you in on a little beauty secret that has been exploding the skin and hair industry as we speak. We’re talking about silk. Specifically, 100% pure 6A grade mulberry silk. Having reached cult status amongst beauty gurus, our 100% mulberry silk pillowcases redefines the term ‘beauty sleep’. Some would even say it is the ultimate beauty investment. Not to mention the soft, luxurious feel it has on your skin.
Check out the benefits:
✓ Sleeping on a silk pillowcase will prevent your delicate skin from sleep creases and premature wrinkle formation. It also won’t absorb your skins moisture and facial creams, leaving your products where they should be: on your skin (yay to moisturised, glowing skin).
✓ No more frizz or bed head in the morning.
✓ Silk is a very cooling material, and studies show that when your body is cool at night, it releases the crucial anti-aging hormone melatonin.
✓ Silk is a naturally hypoallergenic material, with a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and mould, in addition to many other allergens.

Can I iron my pillowcase?
Yes! Just remember to use a cool iron inside out.
Can I machine wash my pillowcase?
Yes! Our pillowcases are made with a high grade quality silk. You can wash your silk in the washing machine on a gentle, cold wash with ph neutral detergent. We recommend using a wash bag for all of our products to protect the silk from other garments in the wash.
Can I sleep with my silk pillowcase/ cap with wet hair?
Both our silk caps and pillowcases should be used with dry hair.
Can I use hair products when using a silk cap or silk pillowcase?
Using hair products and sleeping with a silk cap or silk pillowcase is fine if you allow the products to dry before you go to bed. However, the silk cap nourishes your hair with your natural hair oils, so it may not be necessary to put many products on your hair.
What size are the pillowcases?
Our pillowcases are 70cm x 50cm, which will fit any international standard/ queen size pillow. Our silk pillowcases are made with an invisible zipper, so that your pillowcase won’t fall off of your pillow. Yay!

How to care for your silk pillowcase:

From the experts
Persistently pressing our faces into a pillow causes trauma to the skin. Over time, this trauma, aggravated by the friction of a cotton pillowcase, can create permanent creases as our collagen breaks down.
– Dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross
“Due to the product buildup on cotton pillowcases, the potential for acne-causing bacteria to fester is a possibility. Silk helps the skin stay hydrated as opposed to cotton which is an absorbent material.”
– Dr. Nussbaum
“Cotton pillowcases can potentially absorb moisture and hydration from skin and hair leaving the skin dehydrated and increasing the appearance of fine lines,”
– Dermatologist Marnie Nussbaum MD.
“You can avoid waking up with bed head by sleeping on Silk Pillowcases, cotton causes more friction and disrupts the hair cuticles”
– Charles Worthington
“A lot of doctors advise using Silk Pillowcases after cosmetic surgery”
