The Chinese have known for centuries the health benefits of sleeping on silk; they regarded it as the closest thing to human skin. It has been shown to reduce hair loss, relieve allergic reactions, and help your skin stay young.
Some of the benefits of silk:
Skin – Silk is 100% natural and hypoallergenic, it contains a natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. Studies show amino acids can counter the effects of aging especially in facial skin. It also contains natural cellular albumen, which helps speed up metabolism of skin cells thus helping to reduce signs of aging.
Allergies – Unlike cotton, silk does not draw natural moisture from your skin, helping to keep it hydrated throughout the night. This makes silk ideal for sufferers of skin conditions such as Eczema by retaining moisture in the skin. Silk also acts as a natural inhibitor of dust mites, giving dust mite sufferers a restful night’s sleep.
Heat regulation – Silk is a perfect heat regulator; it does not conduct heat like other fibres, retaining heat during winter months and shedding excess heat in the summer.
Hair – At a molecular level cotton is much rougher than silk, this leads to pulling on hair causing breakages and split ends. The effects on continual contact cause tangles and ultimately ruined hair styles. Silk being very smooth reduces friction with between hair and fibres leaving you tangle free in the morning.
