What is a momme?
Silk Momme, actually pronounced as moe-me, is a unit of measurement for silk fabric. It is a measure of the weight of 100 yards of silk fabric. The more weight that a silk has, the longer the silk will last. 22 Momme means that 100 yards of silk fabric weighs 22 pounds.

Why should I buy this product as opposed to other beauty products?

What is wrong with my cotton pillowcase?
Cotton cannot help but absorb our night creams and serums, thus reducing their effectiveness. Cotton also absorbs moisture from your face and hair, thus giving you a messy bed head and sleep creases in the morning. Silk on the other hand, doesn’t absorb these serums due to its anti-absorbent property and helps your hair and skin glide on it which causes less friction.
Why can’t I use a satin pillowcase instead?
We got a lot of questions asking about why people can't use satin which is less expensive and more readily available.Satin is a polyester fiber, which means that it is made from plastic polymers and petroleum. In hot regions like Asia, Africa and Middle East, satin makes you sweat profusely which could cause skin irritations and allergies. Silk on the other hand, is a natural thermostat. It keeps your cool in the summer and warm in the winter, along with being anti-bacterial and anti-allergic .
Does silk have anti-aging benefits?
Silk helps retain the natural moisture levels of our skin and hair. Silk helps your skin glide easily on the pillowcase thus prevents premature ageing as well as wrinkles and pillow creases.
Is silk anti-bacterial?
Silk is a natural fiber which is anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic. If you have sensitive or acne prone skin, silk will actually help reduce the sensitivity and give you healthy looking skin.
I hear silk pillowcases are good for patients going through chemotherapy?
For chemotherapy patients, silk is proven to reduce pain and hair fall, all thanks to no hair friction while you sleep at night. It also helps them sleep better.
