Why sleep on silk instead of cotton or polyester satin?

There is an important difference between silk, cotton or polyester satin. Cotton pillowcases are not smooth and give much more friction. This causes damage to your hair and delicate skin. Silkstudio Amsterdam pillowcases are soft and smooth and allow your skin to glide, while cotton could damage your delicate skin, resulting in dehydrated skin and sleep-creases.

Silkstudio Amsterdam pillowcases are 100% silk. Silk is a natural fabric containing a protein called Sericin, with anti-aging and moisturizing properties. But polyester satin is made from synthetic material, an unnatural petroleum based substitute for real silk. Always sleep on real silk.
