Huge rise in allergy and asthma sufferers

Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, making it a must for asthma patients and allergy sufferers - especially those with eczema - helping sensitive, dry or itchy skin. 

In the UK, there are an estimated 5.1 million people with asthma and 13 million with allergies. Many triggers such as chemicals and common indoor allergens can aggravate both diseases. Medical experts advise that reducing exposure to allergens and irritants, such as dust mites, pet dander and formaldehyde should be a critical part of patient's asthma and allergy management plan.

For travelers with asthma and allergies, managing their exposure to allergens when they are away from home can be a challenge. Many bedding items such as pillows, comforters and mattress pads contain unwanted chemical ingredients and finishes from manufacturing or packaging, and most bedding also accumulates common indoor allergens during everyday use. We suggest you pack your SilkKiss silk pillowcase on your next journey to avoid exposure.

The SilkKiss silk pillowcases have been tested and proven as an effective barrier (chemical free) from common allergens such as dust mites and pet dander. SilkKiss offers the luxury and all season comfort of sleeping on all natural and breathable silk materials providing a more comfortable night's sleep.
