Here are eleven benefits from sleeping on Organic Peace Silk pillowcases:
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 retain 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
Unlike standard cotton pillowcases, that absorbs moisture (and skincare products) from your skin. Silk is less porous and keeps moisture where it should be. It helps to maintain skin's hydration level, thus preserving skin health.
4. Silk is Hypoallergenic
It does not attract dust mites and is a natural fungal repellent, so there's less chance your pillowcase harbouring harmful germs, its 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 does not clog pores. While other materials such as 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 your 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 all your natural hair-loving hydration, 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 - By not conducting static electricity, sleeping on silk reduces hair breakage 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. Sleep guilt-free - Unlike conventional silk, our Organic Peace Silk is cruelty-free, and GOTS certified. The pillowcase is made without the use any nasties or harmful fertiliser, chemicals and dyes. So, you can rest peacefully and conscience-free.
