SILK WITH

BENEFITS

Discover the benefits of silk, why we love it and care tips for your new silk goods.

  • Why is Silk best for me?
    As skin ages it loses elasticity. Sleeping on Pure silk can reduce the stretching and tugging on delicate facial skin sleep creases that can be gradually ironed in over the years leading to premature aging. The worlds most renowned hairstylists have recommended sleeping on silk as it is gentle and hair friendly. Helps maintain hair extensions, braids, damaged hair, lash extensions and great for men’s beards. The durability of silk plays a big role in the quality of Silk. A fibre of silk that is of the same diameter as a fibre of steel is said to be stronger than the steel. That is pretty durable, although it is important to know that all silk is not equal. Cultivated silk is more durable than wild silk because silkworms grown in captivity are fed an exclusive diet of mulberry leaves. Special care is taken to ensure the cocoon of the silkworms weft is kept intact so that when it is softened and unwound into a silk thread filament it stays in piece. Silk will not deteriorate over time because of its natural fungal repellency and because chemicals are not used in processing, but this only holds true if you buy bedding that is 100 percent silk and not a blend of silk blend that contains silk plus other fibres that may or may not be chemical based or have been processed using chemicals. Silk is a perfect choice for people suffering from asthma and from certain types of allergies such as being allergic to dust mites mold, and fungus; they tend to stay away from substances such as silk making them the ultimate selection.
  • How do I know what the best Skin Care product options are for me?
    I recommend booking a Skin Care Consultation (insert link to booking skin care consult/calendar) so that we can individually assess your skin with a complete a skin care analysis, skin care product audit, and a build you a customized day and night time routine to ensure you have the most impactful care for your skin.
  • How do I wash my Silk products?
    If you wish to maximize the life of your pillowcase, hand washing at 30°C is the ultimate method. Our pillowcases are made of high quality silk so they are machine washable, but they are still silk and need as much care as we can give them. Machine wash at 30°C (Cold Cycle) with silk friendly detergent (recommended) Remove from machine & air dry Iron on low setting after drying Do not bleach Do not dry clean Do not tumble dry
