    For a long time, silk has been mostly known as a plush bedding material reserved for those interested in enhancing the aesthetic appearance of their bedroom. However, bedding materials such as silk pillowcases offer a number of unique benefits that stretch well beyond simply making your bed look a little nicer.
    Silk pillowcases help protect your skin

    You may have heard that silk bedding is somehow good for your skin, but this might leave you asking the question, "Do silk pillowcases prevent wrinkles in a measurable way?" The answer to this question is a resounding yes. Let's take a look at how sleeping on silk can help your skin and hair:

    Silk will keep your face moisturized
    A key element of preventing wrinkles and skin damage is to keep your face properly moisturized. The smooth, tightly woven nature of a high quality silk pillowcase naturally seals moisture into your skin, unlike cotton pillowcases, which instead try to absorb much of the moisture in your face.

    Silk contains natural proteins that fight skin aging
    Protein plays an important role in maintaining your skin’s health. Many people's skin is deprived of the right amount of protein throughout the day, and especially while they sleep. Silk naturally contains several proteins made up of 18 essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) that enhance the quality of the skin.

    It is easier to sleep on silk pillowcases
    Lack of sleep can have an effect on your entire body, including your face. In fact, one of the biggest causes of skin imperfections like dark circles and wrinkles is lack of sleep. Coarse pillowcases made out of materials like cotton can contribute to sleeping difficulties as it rubs against your body and irritates the skin; silk, on the other hand, does not interfere with your sleep at all as it glides and drapes around your body. This is especially beneficial for people with sensitive skin.

    How else do silk pillowcases help?
    Now that you know the answer to the question, "Do silk pillowcases prevent wrinkles?" Let's look at other ways that silk can enhance your sleeping experience:

    Silk is much better for your hair
    Your face isn't the only part of your head that benefits from silk pillowcases. Due to its smoothness, silk allows your hair to glide gently over the pillowcase as you sleep, so instead of causing a cluster of knots and tangles, your hair is left relatively untouched.

    Silk pillowcases are hypoallergenic and fight allergens
    Millions of people across the globe suffer from some sort of allergies. Some of the biggest culprits for disconcerting allergic reactions are right in your bed. Most bedding materials actually support the existence of these allergens by locking them in. Silk, on the other hand, fights dust, fungus, mold, mites and more as you sleep. What's more, silk pillowcases get this done without the help of harsh chemicals that can be allergens themselves.

    What are you sleeping on?
    Do silk pillowcases prevent wrinkles? Do silk pillowcases make it easier to sleep? Do silk pillowcases look and feel great? The answer to all of these questions is yes.

  • 3 Great Reasons to Choose A Silk Pillowcase

    Not sure if Silk Pillowcases are right for you?  Here are three amazing reasons to sleep on Manito Luxury Silk Pillowcases.

    1: Silk is good for skin.
    We spend an average of 8 hours a day with our head on a pillow so the material we choose for our pillowcases is an important decision.  The smooth surface of silk discourages 'face creases', assisting with the prevention of wrinkles and fine lines forming on the face. The PH level of silk is the same as human skin and the amino acids present in silk help to keep skin looking and feeling young, healthy & beautiful.  Also, while silk does have moisture wicking properties they are much less than cotton, which means it wicks away less of skin's natural moisture and the creams we use at bedtime, leaving skin more hydrated.

    2: Silk is good for hair
    The majority of us are side sleepers and use cotton pillowcases.  But the coarse texture of cotton can cause hair to break, tangle, matt, and frizz during sleep. Unlike cotton, a silk pillowcase is made of luxuriously smooth fibers. This means that sleeping on a silk pillowcase causes no mechanical irritation to hair. More importantly, silk fibers have a very similar structure with that of human hair, containing 97% amino acids and 3% waxy and fat fibers. This helps reduce hair damage, such as split ends. Sleeping on silk also helps blow-dries, extensions & up-does last longer which means fewer visits to the salon, less money spent, and less time spent styling our hair.

    3: Silk is hypo-allergenic & chemical-free
    Among the many wonderful silk pillowcase benefits is its chemical-free composition. Manito's 100% mulberry silk is produced in a controlled environment with no chemical exposure. While cotton pillowcases are often produced from chemically treated crops, the silkworms that produce Manito silk are fed with mulberry leaves that have no exposure to chemicals.  And Manito's dyeing process is also 100% chemical-free.  This means that during the night you will not be inhaling any synthetic or harmful chemicals that might lead to insomnia, allergies or other health problems related to toxic exposure.
