Mulberry Silk Pillowcase with Hyaluronic Acid and Argan Oil

Every wondered how you can optimise your sleep time with a beauty treatment at the same time? 
We did and went on to find out how we could make this happen! 

Lunalux is Australia’s first 100% silk pillowcase infused with skincare ingredients hyaluronic acid and Argan Oil. 

Choosing the highest grade Mulberry silk and using a revolutionary smart technology from the Netherlands we have been able to bring you a pillowcase that can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, rehydrate your skin and hair, reduce waking up with bed hair and sleep lines. At the same time our pillowcases are so ultra smooth and silky to sleep on, you’ll think you are sleeping on a cloud.

So what is Mulberry Silk? 

Mulberry silk is the most luxurious of all natural fibers.   Mulberry silk comes from the cocoon that is spun by silk worms. The bombyx mori moth are only fed mulberry leaves and these cocoons are then spun into raw silk fibres.   Because the bombyx mori moth’s are only fed these mulberry leaves, the resulting silk is of the highest quality and more refined than other types of silk.

Mulberry Silk is known for its softness, strength and resiliency. It is more than twice as strong as cotton and more than three times softer than cotton.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a called a humectant which means that it draws water into the top layer of the skin. Our bodies are 70% water and each of our cells need water to live, thrive and function as it should. Hyaluronic Acid is hydrating and helps our skin cells to receive the moisture they need. 

Hyaluronic Acid provides continuous moisture to the skin by binding up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Unfortunately as we age, the amount of HA that our bodies are able to produce decreases and consequently the amount of HA that is in our skin drops significantly making us more prone to dry skin and wrinkles!

What is Argan Oil? 

Argan Oil is a natural oil that is extracted from the kernels of the Argan Tree. It is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants and is often referred to as 'liquid gold'.  Argan oil is often used in skincare products such as skin care creams, lotions, face masks, shampoos and conditioners. Due to the high concentrate of anti oxidants - including oleic acid and linoleic acid some studies have found that Argan Oil may help boost collagen levels, plump your skin and reduce fine lines. 

Combining these two anti ageing ingredients with the natural benefits of silk, our Lunalux Mulberry Silk pillowcases can:

Help reduce the time it takes for you to do your hair in the morning

Sleeping on a regular cotton pillowcase produces friction between your hair and the pillowcase as you toss and turn all night. When you sleep on silk, your hair is able to gently glide over the pillowcase effortlessly, leading to less frizz, split ends and hair breakage.  This is exactly why silk pillowcases are so often recommended by hairdressers.  When you sleep with a Lunalux silk pillowcase you’ll also find that your blow dry lasts longer. 

Have your skincare products stay on your face

When you sleep on a regular cotton pillowcase friction is produced between your face and the pillowcase. Not only this, but a regular cotton pillowcase will also absorb all your skincare ingredients. Sleeping on a mulberry silk pillowcase will help to ensure that your skincare products stay on your face.  When you sleep with Lunalux, you’ll also have the benefit of the moisturising and hydrating properties of the Hyaluronic Acid and Argan Oil. 

Help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles 

Sleeping on a Lunalux pillowcase means less tugging on your skin than a regular cotton pillowcase. As you sleep you naturally move around and this friction can lead to creating wrinkles on your skin. Have you ever woken up with a big line down your face? If so, that’s called a sleep crease! Over time, these sleep creases can then form into permanent wrinkles.  Lunalux silk pillowcases infused with hyaluronic acid and argan oil are designed to keep your skin hydrated and plump. 

With the unique smart technology that we use here at Lunalux, it is our aim to create a sleeping experience unlike any other night of sleep that you have had before. These beauties were intelligently created to help promote cleaner, healthier and better looking skin and hair while you sleep!

Whilst here at Lunalux we believe that ageing is a true privilege, we also know that taking care of yourself not only makes you feel better on the outside, but on the inside too! That’s why we designed this pillowcase - to help you get the most out of your sleep time and to help you feel good about yourself. 

Our silk pillowcase with hyaluronic acid and argan oil is for all skin types. An affordable luxury that takes daily skincare to the next level, caring for your skin as you sleep.
