Tired of waking up with frizzy hair and irritable skin after an uncomfortable night’s sleep?
Then maybe you should take a serious look at your pillowcase.
Whilst the importance of a really good mattress for a great night’s sleep is well documented, the role a top quality pillowcase plays in it is actually quite under-rated.
Along with an exceptional pillow, a premium pillowcase can make all the difference to your slumber experience. It is for this reason we recommend the Ecosa Silk Pillowcase.
About the Ecosa Silk Pillowcase
Made from 100% mulberry silk, the Ecosa Silk Pillowcase is undoubtedly one of the best pillowcases you can buy at the moment.
A luxurious and beautifully smooth type of material to lay your head on, it is made from the highest quality of silk that is available. This makes it cool and comfortable to sleep on.
Measuring in at the standard 50 cm by 70 cm, this breathable and durable slip can fit most pillows on the market.
It is a hypoallergenic, odourless and 100% natural product, which actually contains some types of amino acids – which are the building blocks of protein. These amino acids are the same pH levels as our skin, so they are perfect for those who are cursed with allergies, sensitive skin or even asthma.
Benefits of the Ecosa Silk Pillowcase
As well as being an exceptional pillowcase, it can be argued that the Ecosa Silk Pillowcase is actually one of the best kept of all beauty secrets.
While this might sound like a strange thing to say, the pillowcase can work wonders for your hair and skin.
For a start by gently gliding through this top quality silk fabric, your skin can avoid premature wrinkle formation and annoying sleep creases.
Unlike with cotton, which soaks up all moisture, silk pillowcases and bed sheets are less absorbent. So they will leave your skin cream on your body and face, which therefore gives you healthy, glowing skin.
In addition, while cotton pillowcases, have a tendency to grasp your hair by its roots and thus cause it to fray, split, or become frizzy and tangled, the gentle and soft Ecosa Silk Pillowcase keeps your skin smooth and healthy. Thus keeping your style in tact for days.
One of the best attributes of silk is that it has natural thermal regulating properties. This means it can be cosy and warm during the winter and nice and cool in the summer.
Being a natural, biodegradable and renewable resource, this fantastic pillow slip also does not harm the environment in any way whatsoever.
What is so good about the silk used in the Ecosa Silk Pillowcase?
Unlike with most other fabrics, the quality of silk is not measured in terms of its thread count. Instead, the silk industry adopts ‘Momme’ as the metric to determine the quality and density of the material.
The metric is pretty simple to follow – the higher the Momme, the better the quality of the silk.
Typically when it comes to suitcases, silk pillowcases with a momme of 15 or less are susceptible to ripping, tearing or general deterioration over time.
Fabrics with a momme of 25 or more are generally more durable, robust enough to support you week after week, and machine washable.
By contrast the Ecosa Silk Pillowcase actually has a momme of 30, which makes it far more superior and longer lasting than most other silk pillowcases currently available on the market.
