OMG yes! Traditional pillowcases can cause damage to your hair and your face. The natural properties of silk including its smooth surface can help to reduce friction on your hair and face allowing your skin to slide across the surface of the pillowcase whilst sleeping, whereas cotton can tug at your delicate skin, which can age and stretch the skin and cause sleep-creases.

‘Satin’ isn’t a fabric; it’s synthetic (e.g. polyester) may feel soft but it’s a poor alternative to silk.
Silk is a natural fibre, whereas ‘satin’ is petroleum based. Satin is thinner, rougher and it ‘sweats’, a silk pillowcase is softer and breathes better allowing you to stay cool at night.
