The Science

  1. A major cause of ageing is from sleeping on cotton, linen, or polyester pillowcases
  2. Silk is made up from strings of amino acids, the same ph as your skin. These proteins can help to prevent "bed hair", frizz and split ends
  3. SilkPerfect's luxury silk pillowcases deter house mites and their faeces from coming into contact with your skin and respiratory system
  4. Silk's hypoallergenic properties may also ease conditions such as eczema and asthma
  5. Research suggests that Silk helps to retain moisture and minimise wrinkling

Silk is derived from the silkworm (Bombyx Mori) cocoon. It is a natural protein that is made up of 25 - 30% Sericin, and 70 - 75% Fibroin proteins. It is the researched qualities of these proteins that make silk an ideal choice for applications in a wide range of cosmetics, toiletries, medical and topical products.

"Turning Back the Hands of Time" (Feb 2005). AAD - founded in 1938, is the largest, most influential, and most representative of all dermatologic associations with a membership of more than 15,000 physicians worldwide.

There are 5 intrinsic causes of skin ageing: intrinsic ageing (loss of fats, muscle tone & structure); sleep lines; photo (sun) damage; gravity; expression lines.

One cannot particularly impact upon the impact of the biological and physical constants of gravity, intrinsic ageing or expressions. One can proactively impact upon sun damage (by using sun screens and covering-up) and sleep line damage.

The Health Benefits of Sleeping on Silk Pillowcases - SUSAN PINCKNEY

"The Wonderful Benefits of Sleeping on Silk" state all the proposed benefits (28 August 2007)


Rachel Sullivan MD, Bella Rosa

"There is a lot more to the sleeping story- if you are a stomach sleeper beware! Studies have shown that this actually will produce sleep line and wrinkles. Ways to fight this type of wrinkling are use a firm pillow and a silk or satin pillowcase."


Scandinavian journal of plastic and reconstructive surgery and hand surgery  ISSN 0284-4311 

"...there are sometimes 2-3 parallel lines generally in the same area of the face, such as the lateral orbital, temporal, frontal, and buccal regions. After detailed evaluation, we concluded that these oblique or horizontal wrinkles were caused by the position in which they slept. All of them slept prone, with their faces buried in the pillow, which over many years has caused wrinkling of the skin. We think therefore that sleeping position should be considered as an aetiological factor in the formation of wrinkles."

"it is best to try and sleep on your back, since the facial skin is not stressed in any way. Some people opt for soft pillows to minimize this problem, and a soft pillow cover, like satin or silk, can also help to minimize the effect."

"Conclusion. We have confirmed Dr. Stegman's hallmark work on sleep wrinkles. They are accentuated by pillow contact and the underlying SMAS."

A natural fibre is best for skin: minimising damage, and providing proteins. Silk is a smoother material than cotton and linen and thus minimises night creases or "sleep lines".

Research paper

Dr. Samuel J. Stegman - Dermatologic Surgeon

Dr. Stegman's 1987 hallmark work on sleep wrinkles proved that the muscular region of the face known as the "underlying superficial muscular aponeurotic system" (SMAS) was damaged by pillow contact. He found a correlation between the location of the underlying SMAS and sleep lines. This particular manifestation of ageing disappears in the morning in teenagers but will persist longer and longer as we age. Many people in their forties and fifties maintain the sleep crease throughout the day. Dr Stegman's conclusion was attempting to change sleep pattern, i.e. sleeping on your back - but this is often more difficult than it sounds as we don't know how we move in our sleep. As there is this correlation between the SMAS and sleep lines it makes sense to sleep on the softest, most pure pillows and pillowcases available such as silk pillowcases.

What Prof Soren Sorenson actually stated "p" as standing for is still unclear - H is for Hydrogen). Skin's pH is slightly acidic (4-6), A near neutral "balanced" pH of 7 will not harm skin. The natural silk spinning process is attended by a reduction in pH from 6.9 (neutral) to 4.8 - balanced with human skin's pH.

3. SilkPerfect's luxury silk pillowcases deter house mites and their faeces from coming into contact with your skin and respiratory system;

Application number: 10/840,662
Publication number: US 2005/0032446 A1
Filing date: 7 May 2004

US Patent:

An allergen-barrier fabric includes a tightly-constructed fabric substrate: The method according to claim 13, wherein the fabric has a mean pore size of 4 to 10 microns, wherein the fabric provides a barrier to mite-induced allergen particles.

SilkPerfect's Habotai silk of thread count of 59.5 x 42 falls within the above criteria whilst the Momme is 15.5 with typical Habotai silk pore size ranges between 2 and 9 micron.

The British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval

This is awarded to many products with a greater mean pore size than this thread count of silk. Therefore it is fair and proven to state that these silk pillowcases repel allergens, and certainly repel mites (200-300 microns) and whose droppings are 10-24 microns in size. A sample of SilkPerfect pillowcases is available for inspection and pore micron measurement. Further, "Encasing your pillows, mattress and box spring with plastic or specially coated or finely woven (pore size < 10 microns) vapor-permeable fabrics will deprive the dust mites of food and prevent many of the dust mite droppings from reaching you. The fabrics are more comfortable since they allow perspiration vapor to be more naturally carried away from your skin."

An example of the many articles states "Silk does an excellent job of filtering out allergens because it is tightly woven and has a small pore size." Similarly, mites cannot enter a silk-covered pillow in the first place.

Approved Products


Silk is naturally hypoallergenic as it contains "Sericin", an anti-acarid property, which prevents the growth of mites and mould. As a result, silk is inhospitable to dust mites and is therefore the perfect alternative to down.

Sericin is also known to have a skin moisturizing

and antiwrinkle effect due to its high content of serine (30-33% of the total amino acids) (1). Because of the characteristic effects, sericin has been widely used in Japan as an ingredient of cosmetics. We have further found that consumption of sericin suppressed 1,2-dimethylhydrazineinduced colon tumorigenesis in mice (3,4), implying that sericin could be a useful chemopreventive agent against colon cancer.

Silksheets Guide

"Silk has a natural protein and amino acids that help it repel dust mites, mold, and mildew."


The Benefits of Silk Sheets

Silk is made from the cocoons of silkworms. Like nearly anything in nature, there are natural occurring substances in the cocoon of the silkworm that protect from various threats. Because the process of turning those cocoons into silk is a gentle one that does not strip away those natural substances, the benefits of them are still in the silk when you purchase silk bedding. Dust mites, mold, and funguses all do not like those substances and stay away from silk. This means that silk bedding is a perfect choice for people suffering from asthma and from certain types of allergies such as being allergic to dust mites.

"House dust mites often cause allergic reactions. Dust mite feces contain at least 15 proteins that also act as allergens. These mites and/or their droppings may cause allergic reactions to 500 million people worldwide and be responsible for triggering reactions in 50% to 80% of asthmatics." Silk has been shown above to repel Dust Mites and their faeces due to the small pore size and anti-acarid properties of the silk proteins. Ergo silk pillowcases by repelling these allergens will reduce asthmatic reaction.

Background: Excessive transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is the one of the causes of dry skin, and skin moisturizers have been used to overcome it.

Aim: The purpose of this research was to study the moisturizing effect of sericin, a silk protein. Because silk sericin has resemblance with the natural moisturizing factor (NMF), it has been studied for its application in skin cosmetics.

Methods: Sericin gels were prepared using sericin solution and with pluronic and carbopol as stabilizers. The gels were applied on the skin of healthy human volunteers and its moisturizing efficiency was evaluated by measuring the skin hydroxyproline content, impedance, TEWL, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) results.

Results: Decrease in skin impedance, increase in hydroxyproline level, and hydration of epidermal cells revealed the moisturizing effect of sericin, whereas decrease in the value of TEWL may be attributed to occlusive effect, which prevents water loss from the upper layer of the skin. Skin surface topography revealed the smoothness of the upper layer of the skin as a result of moisturization. Conclusion: Increase in the intrinsic moisturization of skin by sericin may be attributed to restoration of the amino acids and its occlusive effect. Thus, it would become a promising and important moisturizing ingredient in moisturizing formulations.

The osmotic stress method was applied to study the thermodynamics of supramolecular self-assembly phenomena in crystallizable segments of Bombyx mori silkworm silk fibroin. This shows that silk has to contain water and will prevent osmotic effect from other materials - including the human dermis.

The antioxidant activities against hydroxyl...the antimicrobial activities and the fiber-coated surface were studied in silk sericin from different species of waste cocoon.

In the formation of silk filament, the cocoon shell is composed of two proteins named fibroin, held together by a gum-like protein called "sericin". The sericin protein is made of 18 amino acids. Sericin is applicable as an anti-oxidant in the field of medicines, cosmetics, foods, and food additive [3]. The protein is also used as a coating material for natural and artificial fibers, which can prevent abrasive skin injuries, the development of rashes and antibacterial for the products such as diapers, diaper liners, and wound dressing [4].

SILK SA e-document

Both the sericin and the silk fibroin are made up of 100 per cent protein which contain 18 amino acids, including the eight essential amino acids, such as alanine, glycine and serine which are the building blocks of protein in the skin and regarded as a part of the Natural Moisturizing Factor.

The high hydroxy amino acid content of Sericin (approx. 46%) is of particular importance for the water-binding capacity which regulates the skin‘s moisture content. On the other hand, it has a unique carbohydrate makeup and a unique repetitive amino acid sequence which give Sericin its high affinity for proteins resulting in a tightening, anti-wrinkle effect.

As Sercin has a high antioxidant and antibacterial activity, this means Sercin can stop the oxidation reaction of free radicals and inhibit microorganisms growth.

Fibroin is a type of protein created by silkworms in the production of silk. Fibroin has many superior properties. It absorbs and dissipates moisture well, allows air to pass freely, has a unique lustre, blocks ultraviolet rays, is water resistant and neutralises acids. These characteristics have the power to protect and care for the skin, prevent aging and promote an overall healthy skin.


Sericin Silk Protein: Unique Structure & Properties

R Voegeli, Jurg Meier & R Blust - Pentapharm Ltd, Basle, Switzerland

R Hofsteter - Aesch, Switzerland

(Pulished Cosmetics & Toiletries Vol 108 Pages 101-108)

Experiments on hair, skin and with volunteers were undertaken to inform the research.

The affinity of sericin to keratin [consituent of human skin and hair] was demonstrated with different methods. Human hair pre-treated with soluable sericin showed a decreased protein adsorbtion  potential compared to untreated hair, proving that the binding sites of keratin are blocked by sericin. A statistically significant smoothing of the treated hair resulted.

These finding have additionally been visualised with flourescence-labeled sericin. By use of a flourescence microscope it could be shown that conjugated sericin, even after repeated rinsing for a prolongued time, was not removed entirely from skin and hair.

Similar effects could be demonstrated on shed snake skin...a non-living pure stratum corneum with many similarities to human stratum corneum. Therefore shed snake skin offered a good model for our investigations. As presented in figures 7 & 8 a the remarkable flourescence of skin which was in contact with sericin (labeled with Texas Red sulfonyl chloride) is easily detectable.

The affinity of sericin is not only limited to fibroin and keratin; it also adheres on cells of the connective tissue.

From the results shown in fugures 10 and 11, it can be concluded that sericin has, in fact, filmogeneous as well as moisturising properties. Cosmetic ingredients with these two properties are not very common: therefore these two properties make sericin a valuable ingredient for the industry.

Moreover, it could be demonstrated that sericin has an antiwrinkle effect. It can be recognised that sericin treatment induces a progressive improvement of the cutaneous micro-relief and a decrease in deep wrinkles.


The silk threads produced by silkworm bombyx mori are surrounded during the spinning process with the sticky protein sericin to form a protective envelope. This natural principle, used by silkworms with success for millions of years, is worthy of being copied and developed into an innovative active ingredient for the cosmetic industry.

As demonstrated in the experiments described here, sericin has a strong affinity to keratin of skin and hair, actually becoming part of them by building a protective, moisturizing film. This, additionally, leads to an improvement of the cutaneous microrelief and a decrease in deep wrinkles.
