Uncover the Benefits of Sleeping on a Mulberry Silk Pillowcase​

Do you ever find yourself looking in the mirror after a bad night's sleep, exhausted and frustrated with your lifeless hair, dull complexion and undereye circles? If this sounds like you, it may be time to upgrade your pillowcase. Investing in quality beauty products is just one part of getting that much-coveted glow, and incorporating a mulberry silk pillowcase into your sleep system can make all the difference when it comes to skin and hair care.

For those seeking a luxurious experience that will keep them looking their best day after day, a silk pillowcase is an absolute must. In this blog post we'll dive into how sleeping on a silk pillowcase can work wonders on skin & hair, and why their growing popularity has inspired many to join forces with beauty experts and stylists everywhere to take part in the trend!



Make Bedtime Buzz-Worthy

Silk pillowcases are becoming increasingly popular not only for their aesthetic beauty but also for the hair and skin benefits they offer. Made from natural silk fibers, silk's smooth surface reduces friction and facilitates healthy sleep by reducing things like hair damage and formation of wrinkles.

Additionally, sleeping on a silk pillowcase inhibits the growth of bacteria, allowing your hair and skin to stay healthy and more hydrated. Silk naturally absorbs your hair's natural oils and keeps it looking smoother for longer periods of time, without needing to add lotions or creams afterward.

Not only does silk offer amazing beauty benefits, it also delivers a luxurious feel that many love as they slip into bed each night. This is why silk pillowcases are a must-have beauty product due to their nourishing effect on hair, skin and overall well-being.



The Benefits of Silk Pillowcases

Skin Health

Mulberry silk pillowcases are the perfect way to help improve your skin health. Not only will they keep acne-prone skin balanced and nourished, but they also help you retain as much moisture as possible while you sleep. Talk about a win-win for sensitive skin!

Unlike traditional cotton pillowcases, which can be known to pull out moisture from the skin, a mulberry silk pillowcase helps to lock in any existing hydration on your face for a healthier and more rejuvenated look in the morning. With consistent use of these types of pillowcases, users can wake up every day feeling amazed at their naturally glowing and healthy complexion.

Reduce Wrinkles, Fine Lines, and Crease Marks

Investing in a silk pillowcase can be a great preventative measure against wrinkles, fine lines, and even crease marks left from sleeping on your face overnight. Silk is much smoother and gentler on your face than traditional cotton or polyester, making it an ideal material for preventing facial wrinkles before they happen.

In addition to being more gentle on the skin, sleeping against a very soft surface like silk prevents sleep creases that can lead to pinch marks and indentations later in the day. As an added bonus, because silk can create less friction while you sleep, you'll also end up with healthier hair too! If only it could permanently banish bed head.

Healthy and Hydrated Hair

Speaking of bed head, silk pillowcases are a must for those trying to keep their hair frizz-free, hydrated, and healthy. Natural silk is gentle on the hair cuticles, helping to reduce tangles, breakage and split ends caused by friction. It also allows it to keep its natural humidity levels reducing the appearance of frizz.

What's more, silk helps keep the natural oils in your hair topically locked in without disrupting the elasticity or nourishment of the strands. By protecting your hair from damage that occurs overnight you will experience not only fewer split ends but softer, healthier looking locks day after day.



How to Choose the Right Silk Pillowcase for You

Not all silk pillowcases are the same. Beware of material blends, and look for products labeled 100% mulberry silk instead. Mulberry silk is a variety of silk created from the cocoons of the Bombyx mori moth, which is fed leaves from mulberry trees.

Mulberry silk is known for its high quality, softness, and durability, making it a popular choice for clothing and other luxury goods. The unique process used to produce it makes it one of the strongest natural fibers in the world.

We've already learned that mulberry silk can do wonders for skin and hair health, as well as prevent inflammation and irritation. But mulberry silk's strength and durability also ensures that your pillowcases will last a long time without pilling, fraying, or fading in color. What more could you want?

Check the Specs

When buying a mulberry silk pillowcase, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, be sure to check the grade of the pillowcase. On a scale of 1-6, grade 6 produces smoother and stronger fabrics that are less likely to fray or tear. Look for grade 6A to ensure you are buying the best.

Most of us are used to checking thread count when buying sheets. But rather than thread count, silk fabric is measured in "momme"-- a metric that measures thread density. Silks rated 22-momme are of the finest quality and wear like a dream.

Lastly, look for Oeko-Tex certification; this ensures that your silk pillowcase is made with materials that have been tested and certified as free from harmful chemicals and dyes. And be sure to inspect the fabric for any defects like snags or rips which can lead to premature wear and tear.




While the trend of silk pillowcases started for aesthetic reasons, we now know there are many benefits to switching to this luxurious fabric. Not only does it help skin by reducing wrinkles and fine lines, but it also prevents hair from becoming dry and brittle.

When choosing a silk pillowcase, be sure to check for 6A and 22-momme to ensure you're getting a high-quality product that will last. Ready to make the switch? Shop our Mulberry Silk Pillowcase selection today!
