Yes, they help prevent wrinkles! Our silk pillowcase’s super smooth surface has very little friction meaning less tugging on your skin than with a traditional cotton pillowcase. We get 'crush wrinkles' from sleeping on the side of our faces, so we may get less of those when sleeping on silk pillowcases. According to studies, friction created from tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, but a silky smooth surface can reduce that effect in the long run.

Yes, it prevents frizzy hair! Thanks to silk's super smooth texture, hair glides over it with very little friction which means you'll be less likely to wake up with frizzy hair, tangles, or bedhead, whereas cotton pillowcases can snag your hair and muss it up into a nest of tangles overnight. Sleeping on silk pillowcases is a secret that women with textured and curly hair have been using for years to keep styles like braids and blowouts preserved for longer without adding frizz.

Thanks to that silky smooth texture, this is actually true. Silk's smoothness means it’s less likely to absorb moisture from skin, keeping your skin nice and hydrated without absorbing its valuable moisture or any applied skincares. This makes our silk pillowcases great for anyone with dry skin or wants to keep their skincare on their skins and not their pillowcases.

Yes, it does keep your hair healthy in some ways. They help keep hair hydrated, and a plus point, sleeping on silk pillowcases also can help people with brittle hair. As traditional cotton pillowcases are more porous than silk pillowcases, it absorbs moisture from your hair, while silk pillowcases leave that hydration right where it belongs: in your hair. That means if you suffer from dry strands or a flaky scalp, a silk pillowcase can be a night and day difference in a good way.

Yes, it certainly does regulate temperature. According to studies, silk fibers are inherently temperature-regulating. Unlike cotton fibres, which gets wet when it absorbs moisture, silk fabric is naturally breathable and temperature-regulating, in other words, silk emits any sweat that it absorbs very rapidly to help your body maintain a consistent temperature.

In some magical ways, yes! Silk pillowcases can decrease wrinkles and improve your appearance of skin’s hydration, which can make you look more youthful. But something to keep in mind, if anti-aging is your ultimate goal, fine lines and wrinkles are not the only factors that help you achieve your anti-aging goals. Which means you'll also need to combat signs of dull skin and uneven skin tone with the right products and treatments because silk pillowcases can only help combat fine lines and wrinkles by keeping your skin hydrated.
