The Beauty Sleep that Dreams are made of – What makes Mulberry Silk the most luxe, sustainable fabric with natural health benefits?
Pure Dreamwear's silk sleepwear, eye masks, and pillowcases are made from the purest Mulberry Silk, which is the highest quality silk in the world. This is because the silk worms are nurtured in a way that creates a textile that is nourishing to humans.
Mulberry silk worms are only fed mulberry leaves which are rich in nutrients and protein, so the long, smooth thread contains 18 amino acids and proteins that naturally nourishes your hair and skin.
These properties are naturally anti-aging, promoting skin hydration and regeneration. Its long, smooth fibres are the perfect fabric for pillowcases and eye-masks, protecting the delicate skin around the eyes, minimising wrinkles and keeping essential moisture and face serums close to the skin.
Cosmetic physician, Dr Ansulette Kay from Youthful Concepts, chooses Pure Dreamwear's Premium Mulberry Silk Pillowcases for her clinic. She describes the benefits of silk as, "naturally hypoallergenic and smoother than other fabrics, which means you can prevent sleep lines, soothe your skin and maintain hydration whilst getting your beauty sleep in luxury."
Pure Dreamwear's beautiful Silk Eye-Masks are filled with the purest mulberry silk filling, making them the softest, most luxurious eye-mask you've ever experienced.
If you have skin conditions like acne and eczema, sleeping on Mulberry silk can be beneficial as it is both hypoallergenic and antibacterial and breathable. Dr Nava Greenfield, of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City describes Mulberry silk as one of the softest natural silks available that is unlikely to "irritate areas with sensitive skin such as the axilla, groin, and neck. It won’t cause overheating, which can result in a heat rash, and may even help keep moisture in."
Mulberry Silk pillowcases have numerous benefits to all types of hair, as they keep the cuticle layer of the hair intact, retains moisture and less frizz. Celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin explains how "with regular use, I’ve slept better, my hair is shinier, and it’s less prone to breakage."
Silk is a natural, sustainable fabric that is a renewable resource and fully biodegradable. In conventional silk production, Mulberry trees do not require chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Even when chemicals are used in the growing of mulberry trees, they require significantly less chemical inputs than cotton and most other natural fibers. The manufacturing process uses less water, chemicals and energy than synthetic satin fabrics and many other fibres. Pure Dreamwear chooses non-toxic dyes and sustainable dye processes that are kind to the environment.
