We spend a third of our lives in bed. By the time we are 60, we will have slept for an average of 20 years. Slipsilk™ is specially-commissioned and made to our exacting standards, developed and refined over ten years to provide the ultimate combination of shine, thickness, softness and durability.
Cotton grabs your hair and twists it at the root throughout the night, damaging hair and causing bed-head in the morning, whereas slipsilk™ is so gentle on your hair, it allows your hairstyle/blow-dry to last overnight. Unlike cotton, which draws moisture from your face, hair & scalp, slipsilk™ breathes and is a natural temperature regulator. Slipsilk™is a natural fibre, whereas synthetic satin is rougher, thinner and ‘sweats’, essentially negating the benefits.
In 2003, then film manager, Fiona Stewart was prescribed acne medication which resulted in extremely sensitive skin and thinning hair. Her dermatologist suggested sleeping on a silk pillowcase. Unable to find one, she sourced the best silk she could find and wrapped it around her pillow. The results were dramatic and immediate. She’s never looked back. She had stumbled upon a long-forgotten beauty secret—and slip® was born. The following year, Stewart, alongside partner Justin Dubois, officially launched slip®—the first silk pillowcase to be branded and marketed as a beauty product.
Slip® pure silk products are made using slipsilk™. Specially-commissioned (which means you won’t find it anywhere else!) and made to our exacting standards, developed and refined for over ten years to provide the ultimate combination of shine, thickness, softness and durability. Slipsilk™ has been tested by an independent third-party lab and shown to absorb significantly less face cream and create 43% less friction, on average, versus cotton pillowcases. (Compared to widely available cotton pillowcases with a 220-360 thread count).
