Why sleep on a silk pillowcase?

Discover the 8 main benefits of silk on our skin, our hair and our sleep...


Quality sleep is essential for optimal health, the silk pillowcase contributes to improving our sleep
in many ways.


We spend 30% of our lives on our pillowcases. Let's explore how the silk pillowcase maximizes this time to enhance the well-being of our skin, hair, and sleep.

The Benefits of Silk on our Skin



Unlike a cotton pillowcase which absorbs moisture, silk is a water-repellent material, it does not absorb the natural hydration of the skin , it also reinforces the effectiveness of night creams, it prevents the appearance of fine lines.


Silk is naturally hypoallergenic which makes it ideal for people prone to skin allergies, preventing redness and irritation.

The softness of silk is also suitable for sensitive skin , reducing irritation and friction, for a soothing sleep.



While we sleep, our body is active in cell regeneration.

The pores on our face open to get rid of “superfluous” substances accumulated during the day, such as pollution, makeup, perspiration, etc.

The absorption of these elements by a cotton pillowcase quickly transforms it into a nest for bacteria, mites and mold, which increases night after night.

The risks of worsening skin problems or developing new ones increase.

The water-repellent silk pillowcase is three times less absorbent than cotton , and also has natural antibacterial properties , which inhibits the growth of bacteria, dust mites and mold.

It thus offers a healthier sleeping environment.


The Benefits of Silk on our Hair






Sleeping on a silk pillowcase reduces friction between our hair and the fabric, which helps prevent tangling, frizz, hair fall and hair breakage.
Less disheveled, stronger, easier to style.



Amino acids present in silk, such as serine and glycine, strengthen hair , promoting shine and softness.


Silk is one of the rare fabrics capable of regulating sebum production (responsible for so-called "oily" hair), helping to maintain a healthy scalp.


The Benefits of Silk on our Sleep

Quality sleep is essential for optimal health, and silk helps improve your sleep in several ways.



The softness of silk provides a feeling of comfort , a pleasant feeling, which facilitates relaxation of the body and mind.



Silk is a thermoregulatory material, which means it keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter, creating an ideal sleeping environment , making it easier to fall asleep.


In conclusion, the silk pillowcase influences many aspects of our well-being, making it a natural treatment , offering a multitude of benefits for our skin, our hair and our sleep.


 Its unique composition




Silk is mainly composed of fibroin , a natural protein rich in amino acids , which make it particularly beneficial for our skin, hair and sleep.


Silk protein is also used in the manufacture of cosmetics, moisturizers and hair care products.


Here are some of its 18 amino acids:

  1. Serine : Serine, present in abundance in fibroin, promotes skin hydration. It maintains skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Glycine : Glycine is an essential amino acid for the production of collagen, the protein that gives the skin its firmness and elasticity.
    Helps stimulate collagen production , contributing to younger, healthier skin.
  3. Alanine : Alanine is an amino acid that strengthens the skin barrier , thus protecting the skin from external aggressions, such as pollution and UV rays.


Its rich history dates back thousands of years, silk is appreciated for its softness, its shine and its unique touch, it has been considered an art, a treasure and a secret kept for centuries...
