While man has spent decades trying to copy silk with products like synthetic satin, nothing has ever come close to providing the health benefits of the real thing. Since 2004, Slip's founders have been working closely with the most reputable and long-standing silk suppliers in the world to bring you the best pillowcase money can buy.
Over time, this causes damage to hair and delicate facial skin. Slip silk allows your skin to glide, whereas cotton scratches and tugs on delicate facial skin, resulting in premature stretching and sleep-crease. Not all silk pillowcases are created equal.
Made from mulberry silk with a thickness of 22 momme, slip silk pillowcases are the very best available anywhere in the world. For more information on non-toxic dyes and other important manufacturing information, refer to the FAQ section.
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.
Sleep creases aren't just temporary. Over time they become ironed wrinkles. since we started in 2004 we've heard countless times from people with years of chronic sleep crease completely disappears after the very first night.
A secret that hairdressers and movie stars have known for decades, silk pillowcases are infinitely gentler on your hair than cotton. Cotton grabs your hair and twists it at the root throughout the night, damaging hair and causing bed-head in the morning, whereas silk is so gentle on your hair, it allows your hairstyle/blow-dry to last overnight, which is great news for people with hair extensions, curly hair, fragile hair and anyone wanting to maintain the integrity of their hair.
Cotton draws moisture from your hair, drying it out 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 is very absorbent. It can hold 24-27 times its own weight in water. This mean it actually draws moisture away from you skin, drying it out stealing your expensive face crème in the process!
When you sleep on silk, your delicate facial skin is more hydrate in the morning.
Don't forget to pack your slip when travelling. Just one night back on cotton an you'll really notice the difference in the morning.
It's a natural temperature regulator, so it's cooler in summer and doesn't sweat like synthetic satin and other man-made imitations. Synthetic satin (e.g. polyester) may feel nice and soft in your hand, but after an 8 hour sleep your hair and facial skin can really feel the difference.
Slip is the perfect choice for people with allergies. Silk is naturallly dust mite resistant. It's also hypoallergenic... at least it is when strict production standards are enforced, including the use of non-toxic dyes — see FAQ section for more details.
