benefits of silk

any old google search will tell you that silk is a sustainable, breathable and luxurious fabric that has been used for hundreds of years in the garment industry, reserved for only the finest occasions. 

but that's not why we choose to use silk. we use silk because of how wonderful this natural material is on skin and hair. this is why.

naturally non-allergenic

silk is a completely natural fabric and is resistant to allergens and dust mites that typically inhabit other materials. this means silk is perfect for those with sensitive skin or prone to allergies and hayfever as it stays hygenic for longer. as a matter of fact, our onlysilk is certified to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 (certificate # BJ015 160136 TESTEX) meaning its free from harmful substances and only uses non-toxic dyes.

prevents hair damage

did you know that hair friction leads to hair loss?


silk reduces hair friction by almost 50% when compared to other materials, which means hair passes over silk without causing as much damage or hair loss. this means silk can prevent split ends and leave your locks looking luscious. 

minimises skin wrinkles

skin wrinkles often start out as sleep creases; those lines you get on your face whilst sleeping the wrong way on your ordinary pillow. 

skin virtually glides over silk, reducing friction and minimising sleep creases overnight, leaving you looking beautiful for longer.

keeps skin hydrated

unlike ordinary fabrics which absorb creams, sweat and body oils, silk is substantially less absorbsent meaning it keeps your expensive beauty products on your hair and body for longer.
