Get Your Beauty Sleep With Copper-infused Silk Pillowcases and Eye Masks

Did you know that most people spend an average of 26 years sleeping? That’s nearly one–third of an average lifetime! So it’s not surprising we’ve all woken up with tangled hair and creases on our faces after sleeping on a cotton pillowcase. Even though the creases generally fade, they can eventually etch themselves permanently into your face. 

Using silk pillowcases to protect and improve your skin and hair has been a trend for a while now, and as technology advances, so does the quality of the products. Try enVy®’s copper-infused 100% mulberry silk pillowcases and eye masks. These 100% mulberry silk pillowcases and eye masks offer all of the benefits of a silk pillowcase but with the added boost of copper.

The Benefits of Copper

Copper is a mineral that occurs naturally in our bodies. It helps in the formation of red blood cells, keeps your nerve cells and immune system healthy, helps your body absorb iron, and gives you energy. It also helps your skin by aiding in collagen production and reducing inflammation. But besides what it can do for your skin internally, it features several other properties that contribute to great skin.

The Benefits of Mulberry Silk

Mulberry silk is a naturally made silk that is protein-based, like your skin and hair. The silkworms that produce the fibers are solely fed mulberry leaves. Mulberry leaves are rich in antioxidants and nutrients, so the silk threads they create contain several amino acids and proteins that nourish and protect our hair and skin.

Combining 100% mulberry silk and copper infusion makes the enVy® eye masks and pillowcases a powerhouse of effortless skin care.

Top 3 Reasons to Choose enVy® Copper-infused 100% Mulberry Silk Pillowcases and Eye Masks

The enVy® eye masks and pillowcases benefit your skin in several ways. Both can add a vital component to your nightly skincare routine. Below, we list the top three reasons to choose enVy® pillowcases and eye masks.

1. Anti-aging and Skin-boosting

Copper and mulberry silk offer anti-aging and skin-boosting properties. The copper in enVy® pillowcases and eye masks works with the copper in your body to combat signs of aging by boosting collagen and elastin production. Copper ions improve circulation, transport oxygen, and vital nutrients to your skin, and even help repair sun-damaged skin. Copper also reduces inflammation, an essential benefit for those with acne or other skin inflammation issues. 

Mulberry silk uniquely adds to the list of skin benefits. It contains a protein called sericin, which comes from the mulberry silkworm. The mulberry silkworm eats antioxidant-rich white mulberry leaves and produces sericin, which is incorporated into the silk it makes. Sericin is often used in skin and hair care products because of its many benefits. It helps keep skin hydrated, protects skin from sun damage, and improves skin elasticity. 

The mulberry silk used in enVy® pillowcases and eye masks keeps your skin and hair hydrated because it doesn’t absorb moisture like cotton. It helps your hair and skin retain moisture and keeps more of your nighttime skincare products on your face where they belong. 

Mulberry silk is ideal for pillowcases and eye masks because it is smooth and won’t catch on your skin, chafe, or leave creases. Silk is friction-free, so your hair stays hydrated, and your pillowcase prevents frizz, breakage, and unruly tangles.

And for those of you with allergies or sensitive or acne-prone skin, mulberry silk is hypoallergenic, soft, and gentle to the touch. enVy® pillowcases and eye masks also have an OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, Class 1 Certification. That means the material is free of any harmful chemicals or contaminants.

2. Antimicrobial and Antibacterial

Copper ions have antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, so they work to prevent the growth of bacteria and pathogens like E. coli and even more virulent pathogens like Swine Flu and MRSA. Copper’s incredible ability to kill bacteria nearly as soon as it comes into contact with it makes it a perfect mineral to infuse into pillowcases and eye masks. Copper keeps odors at bay and helps your skin remain clear of acne-causing bacteria. 

Mulberry silk also has incredible protective properties. It contains a protein known as fibroin, which makes it naturally resistant to mold, fungus, and dust mites.

3. Better Sleep

If you are someone who “sleeps hot” or wakes up sweating in the middle of the night, a copper-infused silk pillowcase might be the solution. The copper ions in enVy® pillowcases and eye masks pull the heat away from your body and disperse it more evenly across the surface of your pillow. The result is a more relaxed night’s sleep. 

Mulberry silk is also a natural insulator, helping to keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Even if you sweat, it is moisture-wicking, so you’ll have a comfortable night’s rest no matter what.
