Silk is a natural fibre that helps to keep your skin hydrated, as opposed to cotton which can often draw moisture from your skin. Bad hair days are banished thanks to Slip, as these cooling silk cases allow your hair to slide across the pillow with ease, reducing hair breakage and reducing flyaways and frizz.
Slip also range matching eye masks to enhance your sleep even further! So what is the the slipsilk™ difference?
Slipsilk™ is specially-commissioned and made to our exacting standards, developed and refined over ten years to provide the ultimate combination of shine, thickness, softness and durability. We use the highest grade (6A) long fiber mulberry silk, with a thickness of 22 momme and enforce the strictest quality guidelines, including non-toxic dyes.
We spend a third of our lives in bed. Silk fibers are significantly less absorbent than many other fibers, so they can help keep your skin’s moisture and expensive face and hair products where they belong, on your face and hair. Slipsilk™ can help to reduce friction, which can reduce stretching and tugging on delicate facial skin.
Ever woken up with a sleep crease? As skin ages, it loses elasticity and sleep creases can become more pronounced and longer-lasting. While the creases usually go away later that day, they can be gradually ‘ironed in’ over the years. Slipsilk™ can help to reduce friction, allowing skin to glide along the pillow while reducing extra pressure on creased skin.
Ordinary pillowcases can cause hair to pull and tangle throughout the night, leading to bed head in the morning and potentially damaging hair, whereas slipsilk™ can help to reduce friction. The world’s most renowned hairstylists and beauty experts have long recommended sleeping on gentle, hair friendly silk to help preserve your blow out.
