Description: Ever woken up with a ‘sleep-crease’ on your face? While the creases usually go away later the same day, they are an indication of the damage done to your face when sleeping on a cotton pillowcase.
A secret hairdressers have know for decades (and the Chinese have known for centuries); silk pillowcases are infinitely gentler on your hair than cotton. When you sleep on a SLIP pure silk pillowcase you’ll notice a huge difference in the state of your hair when you wake up in the morning. Your hairstyle not only lasts longer, but even people with curly hair can say goodbye to the dreaded morning ‘bird’s nest’ - the silk allows your hair to glide over the pillow, rather than grabbing and twisting it every time you move your head during the night. Cotton also draws moisture from your hair, drying it out at the same time and further contributing to bed-head.
Unfortunately ‘bed-head’ is not only an inconvenience, but a symptom of something more serious. The same rough treatment that causes bed-head can also damage your hair follicles, leading to thinner, less healthy hair.
Cotton not only draws moisture from your hair but your skin as well, drying it out and nullifying the benefits of moisturising crème.
Silk breathes. It’s a natural temperature regulator, so it’s cooler in summer and doesn’t sweat like satin and other man-made imitations. It is also hypoallergenic and doesn’t create static electricity the way satin does. Satin may feel nice and soft in your hand, but after an 8 hour sleep your hair and facial skin can really feel the difference.
And that’s the key ingredient to beauty sleep after all. SLIP pure silk pillow cases and sleep masks are good for your hair and skin, but more importantly they feel soft and wonderful, helping you get a full night of luxurious and truly relaxing sleep.
Directions: Put it on your pillow, lie down and sleep!
Ingredients: Technically, aesthetically and functionally; there is literally nothing like silk.
While man has spent decades trying to copy silk with synthetic products like satin, nothing has ever come close to providing the health benefits of the real thing.
The main component of silk is natural protein fibre, derived from Bonbynx Mori larva, or the ‘silk worm’. What starts out as a secretion becomes a super-fine thread, which is harvested and spun into silk.
The Chinese have mastered silk production techniques over centuries; which is why we only import silk from China, as the quality of their silk is unsurpassed to this day.
The quality of silk varies from province to province within China. The founders of SLIP Enterprises have personally travelled across China in search of the best silk available in the entire world. We have spent years working with experts in the field, in order to confidently offer SLIP customers “the best silk products money can buy”.
