Great question! Where do we begin? Silk is the secret “ingredient” of self care. It works wonders on your hair and skin and provides a luxurious feel, helping you get in touch with your inner “Goddess”. Silk products are uniquely composed to retain moisture in your hair and skin and regulate temperature. It is the anti-aging weapon your skin care routine must have.
Why silk over cotton?
Silk has a smooth and luxurious feel, making it extra comfortable to sleep on. It is a protein-based fiber, naturally moisturizing and temperature-regulating, providing multiple skin and hair benefits. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, non-irritating, and resistant to mold and other bacteria.
On the other hand, cotton is coarse, absorbent and can dry out your hair and skin. The friction it produces against your skin speeds up the aging process making you age faster than you should. In other words, cotton has the opposite effect of silk.
How to care for and main your silk products?
Although silk is a powerful tool in skin and hair care, it is also very delicate and needs to be cared for in such a way. To prolong its longevity and have it provide you the care that you deserve, you also need to care for it. The last thing we all want is for your silk products to lose their shine and silky powers.
- Due to its delicate nature, silk needs to be washed in cool water.
- Turn products inside out and place them in a delicate bag.
- Wash with a pH neutral liquid detergent or silk detergent.
- Machine wash in no higher than 30C/ 86f.
- Leave to dry naturally. Do not tumble dry.
Hand washing with cool water is the preferred method to care for your silk products.
How often should you wash your silk products?
It is recommended to wash your silk pillowcases and your other silk products that you use daily, along with your bed sheets every two weeks. If your products are visibly soiled you should wash them before next use. A great advantage of Silk Drips’ 100% mulberry silk products, is that silk is naturally hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant. Therefore, your silk products can last longer than other materials.
How to maximise the benefits of your silk products?
With Silk Drip, you get 24/7 self care, even when you’re sleeping. To guarantee that you get the most out of your silk products, ensure that you follow the care instructions located on the pillowcase tag as well as on our website (click for care instructions). If you desire glowing and hydrated skin and hair, use Silk Drip products, eat a healthy and balanced diet, drink plenty of water, avoid harmful face and hair products, love yourself and steer clear from negativity. This is the blueprint to awaken the Goddess within.
What is momme?
Momme, also abbreviated as mm, is the weight and density of silk fabrics. Momme in silk products usually ranges from 19 mm to 25 mm. Higher momme means there are more strands of silk in the fabric, making the product heavier.
Why does Silk Drop offer 22 momme?
On our journey to bring the Silk Drip experience to life, a 12 month trial and error phase was undertaken, testing mommes (19 mm – 30 mm) from various manufacturers and other silk brands. The criteria we tested for was feel, quality and benefits of the different mommes.
It was found that 19 mm is very fine, whilst 25 mm and above can feel too thick and heavy and essentially does not provide additional benefits compared to 22 mm. 22 mm is the perfect amount of silk thickness providing an amazing feel and great benefits to skin, hair, sleep and health.
Does Silk Drop use non toxic dyes?
Yes, all Silk Drip products use non-toxic dyes.
How is Silk Drip sustainable?
Silk is considered a sustainable fiber. It is a renewable resource, biodegradable, and uses less water, chemicals, and energy than many other fibers.
Minimising waste and protecting the environment is one of Silk Drip’s main focuses. We want to ensure we are helping the environment and not adding harm to it. One of the ways Silk Drip has contributed to this is through our eco-friendly packaging, consisting of the following:
- SIlk Drip’s tissue paper is acid free and 100%, Recyclable, and made from recycled materials.
- Silk Drip uses HeroPackaging’s eco-friendly mailers to provide you with home compostable mailers. The materials used are mainly cornstarch and PBAT (a compostable ingredient which bonds the renewable ingredients together).
- The box that Silk Drip products come in is reusable and designed for multiple purposes. The weight and material as well as the aesthetic of the box can be used for storage beyond shipping of the product. The boxes’ natural appearance with Silk Drip’s sophisticated logo gives a unique classy look.
- Silk Drip’s “Thank you” and “Care Instruction” cards issued with every purchase are recyclable.
Why Silk Drip?
Silk Drip’s mission is to provide you with the best quality silk products in the market. We have worked hard on finding the perfect fabric in a trial and error phase that was undertaken over a 12 month period. Various types of silk, different brands and multiple manufacturers have been tested to see what works and what doesn’t. This process was crucial to ensure that Silk Drip provides the best quality silk products you can find.
All of Silk Drip’s silk products are grade 6A 100% mulberry silk 22 momme and OEKO Tex standard 100 certified, using non-toxic dyes, keeping our fabrics as pure and natural as possible.
