Why Switch to an Organic Peace Silk Pillowcase?

Ethical Kind Organic Peace Silk Pillow Case

Pillowcases (also known as pillow covers) are a necessity in every household. Not only do they complete bedding sets in terms of both functionality and comfort, but they play a fundamental role in our beauty sleep. If we spend one-third of our lives in contact with our pillowcases, it is clear that the fabric we choose for our pillowcases are essential.

Nothing says luxury like sleeping on a silk pillowcase made of natural Silk fibre. The smooth texture of Silk is the perfect environment for your skin overnight. It is better than cotton pillowcases, notorious for absorbing your skin's natural moisture and skin care products.

Our customers love it, and I can, hand on heart, say it has been a game-changer for my sleep, skin and hair. I can see why it's hard to sleep without it now. 

Switching to a silk pillowcase is a simple self-care step that involves no cosmetics, takes zero time and effort, and offers excellent health and beauty benefits.

We share the 12 benefits of switching to an Organic Peace Silk pillowcase for your sleep, hair and skin:

1. Prevents Wrinkles

The silky smooth surface of an Organic Peace Silk pillowcase means your skin does not get "crushed wrinkles" like it would with a cotton or other material pillowcase. Studies show that friction from tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, but sleeping on Silk can reduce that effect in the long run.

2. Keep Skin Cool

Silk is a breathable fabric and a natural temperature regulator. Silk aids the body in retaining heat in cold weather, and excess heat is expelled in warm weather, helping your body maintain a natural, comfortable temperature for sleep.

3. Keep Skin Hydrated

Standard cotton pillowcases absorb moisture (and skincare products) from your skin. Silk is less porous and keeps moisture where it should be. It helps to maintain the skin's hydration level, thus preserving skin health year-round.

4. Silk is Hypoallergenic

It does not attract dust mites and is a natural fungal repellent, so there's less chance your pillowcase will harbour harmful germs. It's ideal for people with sensitive skin. 

5. Reduce Skin Redness and Irritation

The soft and delicate texture is non-abrasive and smooth. It minimises any possible skin irritation or redness caused by regular pillowcases.

6. Reduce Breakouts

Natural silk fibre is breathable and does not clog pores. Meanwhile, other materials, such as Satin, are made from synthetic fibre and are not breathable. Cotton may absorb oils, sweat and dust, resulting in more frequent breakouts and other skin sensitivity issues. Silk is more helpful in your efforts to combat unwanted breakouts. The smoother, tightly woven fabric is softer on your skin and causes less friction and rubbing that can exacerbate an already delicate situation.

7. Regenerate Skin

Silk contains natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. It also contains natural cellular albumen, which helps to speed up skin cells' metabolism while you sleep.

8. Promotes Shiny Hair

Regular pillowcases tend to leach colour and lustre from vibrant, shiny hair. Your hair will glide over soft Silk, maintaining natural hair-loving hydration and keeping hair sleek and shiny. Silk will also help preserve your hairstyle far better than cotton will. It is great for texture and curly hair. 

9. Reduce Split Ends

Sleeping on Silk reduces hair breakage by not conducting static electricity while helping your hair maintain proper moisture balance.

10. Prevent frizzy hair 

where cotton can snag hair and mess it up into a nest of tangles overnight. Silk's super smooth texture allows hair to glide over it without any friction, meaning you'll be less likely to wake up with frizzy hair, tangles, or bedhead.

11. Promote comfort 

A silk pillowcase adds instant opulence to your bedroom. Upgrading your space might help you look forward to bedtime and help you feel more relaxed and comfortable, which is necessary for a good night's sleep.

12. Guilt-free Sleep 

Organic Peace Silk is cruelty-free and GOTS-certified. Unlike conventional Silk, it does not involve killing the silkworm to extract the silk fibres. Organic Silk does not use harmful fertiliser, chemicals, or dyes. So you can rest peacefully and conscience-free.
