6 Reasons Why You Need a Silk Pillowcase

Is your pillow pulling its weight when it comes to your beauty routine? If not, you might need an organic sustainable silk pillowcase so your beauty sleep can really live up to its name. 

Where you rest your head at night can be either helpful or harmful to your daily self-care efforts. Tossing and turning create friction for your face and follicles. Think about how much that takes a toll on your skin and hair.

The 30 momme organic silk pillowcase from Fait avec Coeur has been intentionally designed with both beauty and sustainability in mind.  You can luxuriate in the gentle caress from the most delicate textile on earth, melting into a pillow of silk every night. You’ll feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud.

What’s more?

They are also long-lasting: i.e. a good investment — for Mother Nature and your wallet.

So, let’s dive a bit further into  6 reasons you need a silk pillowcase (specifically an organic sustainable silk pillowcase from Fait avec Coeur).

6 Reasons You Need an Organic Sustainable Silk Pillowcase 

1. It’s a top-notch pick for lovely locks.

A silk pillowcase is much better for your hair than the traditional cotton of choice.

Silk creates almost no friction when you’re tossing and turning, resulting in terrific tresses. Say au revoir to hair breakage from pillowcase friction.

Friction, which happens with standard pillowcases, causes breakage and reduces moisture retention, leaving you with dry hair prone to split ends. That means those pricey products you’re using to keep your hair happy and healthy are soaking into your pillowcase and not staying put on your pretty head.

Therefore, you’re using more — and likely replacing your pillowcase more often because of buildup and grime.

Silk pillowcases solve this problem, pronto — buh-bye pillow problems, hello healthy hair!

2. It’s the anti-aging material of choice for smooth, youthful skin.

We all know once we hit a certain age, we start fretting about the health of our skin.  If you share the same concerns, one thing you can do to protect your skin is to sleep on a silk pillowcase. Seriously!

As with your hair, sleeping on a silk pillowcase creates almost no friction against your skin. 

That means no more of those dreaded morning creases. You know what we’re talking about...pillow-face is the worst. And since the Fait avec Coeur silk pillowcase is made from 30 momme silk, it’s the absolute softest silk on the market to rest your face on. 

Plus, silk absorbs less moisture from the skin than other materials. It also means that more of your product is staying on your face rather than being soaked into your pillowcase. That means smoother, more supple skin — and skin that is hydrated is less prone to wrinkles and fine lines. This isn’t just good news for those living in drier climates, either. Better skin hydration equals firmer, plumper skin with fewer wrinkles and creases for all.

Another benefit to silk is that it actually supports healthier skin healing. According to a recent study, it’s been shown to reduce inflammation and prevent scarring. 

This is what the study — from Science Direct — had to say, “As silk has anti-inflammatory and scar preventive properties, our findings indicate that silk is a promising biomaterial for wound dressing in both healthy individuals and in patients who are prone to develop allergic reactions.”

This is particularly noteworthy for those with acne-prone skin.

Silk is also a good choice for allergy sufferers. It’s a hypoallergenic material and carries no dust mites, eliminating potential allergens for those with this specific affliction.

Lastly, according to studies, silk has been proven to be both antimicrobial and antibacterial — a big plus since we spend a third of our lives sleeping.

One study, also from Science Direct, had this to say “The dyed silk with natural colourants displayed excellent antimicrobial activity (reduction rate: 25–65%) against the bacteria Escherichia coli and (reduction rate: 3–68%) against the fungal strain Aspergillus niger. The dyed silk exhibited good and durable fastness properties.”

So while you sail away into slumberland, you can rest assured that your skin is being nourished and cared for.

Now that’s multitasking at its finest — wouldn’t you agree?

3. It’s better for your bank account.

It might seem like this is the opposite of true, but hear us out. 

An organic sustainable silk pillowcase is an investment — not a one-off purchase you’ll be regretting by the time next month’s credit card statement rolls around.


First, it’s important to know that silk is an incredibly durable material. It’s been around for thousands of years and is made through an intricate multi-step process where great care is taken to ensure its quality — aka they’re made with love!

These pillowcases hold up well to wear-and-tear and will wash up like new for many years to come.

Second, because they don’t soak up your pricey products like their cotton counterparts, you can use less and save more.

Now, with a carefully considered purchase, you can preserve both your budget and your beauty routine with an organic, sustainable silk pillowcase.

4. You’ll be a friend to the earth.

That’s right. 

Not only are they budget-friendly, but they’re eco-friendly too.

5. They are beautiful and come in many colors. 

So far we’ve covered all the beauty, budget, and benevolent reasons to invest in an organic sustainable silk pillowcase. 

Now, let’s get to the fun stuff.

These pillowcases are really, really pretty. And come in lots of colors — meaning, whatever your decor, you can find a pillowcase to match!

Or you can buy several and switch them out seasonally. Whatever your home interior preference, you’ll find something that fits your style.

Are you into pretty pinks? Maybe beachy blues? Perhaps you prefer a more neutral color palette — a bold black and white?

You’ll find all of that and more here in our store. Give it a looksie!

6. Last but not least, always treat yourself to the best! #TreatYoSelf

All too often, we talk ourselves out of self-care, luxury, and special treatment.  The truth is, though, that we should all be a bit more like Donna and Tom in Parks and Recreation. Whether you follow their cue for an annual “Treat Yo Self” day or you start allowing yourself to elevate your everyday experiences on the regular, some luxuries really are worth the investment of both money and time.

When it comes to the Fait avec Coeur silk pillowcase, you can rest easy investing in the highest quality silk on the market. Momme is the unit used when describing the weight of the silk thread. For a pillowcase, a momme weight of 19 - 22 is considered good quality, with silk sheets in the range of 22-25 is being very high quality. This illustrates just how much the Fait avec Coeur 30 momme silk is a true luxury.

And not just for feeling great and looking beautiful - the fact is that the higher quality the silk is, the more durable and long-lasting it will be. 

All this boils down to the Fait avec Coeur 30 momme silk pillowcase being the softest and most durable silk on the market. When you invest in the best silk pillowcase like ours, you’ll want it to last and feel soft to the touch for years to come.  

Just listen to what recent customer Jocelyn has to say,

My fiancé and I LOVE our new silk pillowcases. We ordered the light blue color in the queen size, which is divine. The color is so serene and comforting, while the silk is smooth and lulling. The zipper closure has been heaven sent... not just for keeping our pillows in place, but for easy hand washing too. And speaking of hand washing, laid these puppies flat to dry and they dried so, so quickly. My skin shouts merci!  J'adore Fait avec Coeur!”
