Silk charmeuse is a soft, strong substance that not only makes great protection for a silkworm's pupal stage but also has tremendous effects on women's health. Unlike other synthetic and natural fabrics, silk does not trap air within the fabric of the pillow and pillowcase. Silk charmeuse pillowcases allow air to move in and out of the fabrics while you sleep, allowing new oxygen to pass by your skin, and help your skin breathe and feel refreshed. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase causes no mechanical irritation. Moreover, silk fibers have a similar structure to human hair, containing 97% amino acids and 3% waxy and fat fibers.
Some of silk's hypoallergenic properties include a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus, and mold, in addition to many other allergens. Silk can be beneficial for your skin and hair. Sleeping on a silk pillow sleeve can help your skin stay healthy and smooth and can help reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
The moisture-wicking property of silk makes silked pillow sleeve a good choice to restore the beauty in your hair. Silk can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture and still remain dry. Moisture will be absorbed from your hair which in turn will keep your hair in good conditions.
“Silk has the potential to prevent signs of aging, as well as provide relief for several skin conditions,” explains David E. Bank, M.D., founder and director of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic, and Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, New York. “Sleeping on silk pillowcases can also prevent thinning of the hair and ‘bedhead."
