- Hair Benefits -
Co-owner and Professional Hairstylist Barbara Timmins recommends her clients sleep on silk to reduce hair breakage, split ends & frizzy bed hair, which in turn promotes growth. Silk allows your hair to glide smoothly along the pillowcase, thus enhancing long luscious locks and prolonging the life of your hairstyle.

Reduce sleep creases and wake up glowing!
Unlike cotton, which draws moisture from your skin, silk is a natural fibre, which absorbs significantly less water and skincare products, enhancing your skin's hydration and moisture retention.
Your skin is your biggest organ... silk helps protect it.
Our products are naturally hypo-allergenic and inhospitable to dust mites, mould, fungus and mildew. This means silk is a safe haven if you have allergies, acne, eczema or sensitive skin. It has also been proven to help with skin regeneration and regulates your body temperature.
- Sleep Benefits -
The restorative benefits of a good nights sleep are well known. Why not enhance the quality your sleep routine by using a Silk Sea 100% mulberry silk eye mask that not only blocks out disruptive light but also protects your lashes from breakage and reduces fine lines around the sensitive eye area.
- Silk Facts -
Silk is a natural protein fibre which can be woven into textiles. The protein fibre of silk is composed mainly of fibrion and is produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons. The best known silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori. The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism-like structure of the silk fibre, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colours.
A special manufacturing process removes the outer Sericin coating of the silk, which makes it suitable as non-absorbable surgical sutures. This process has also recently led to the introduction of specialist silk underclothing, which has been used for skin conditions including eczema. New uses and manufacturing techniques have been found for silk for making everything from disposable cups to drug delivery systems and holograms.
