Here’s Why Frequently Asked Questions
How does Hydroluna work?
Hydroluna is our premium 100% pure silk pillowcase and the ultimate sleep solution. We infuse hyaluronic acid deep within the silk fibers which can both benefit your hair and skin, all while you’re asleep!
Do silk pillowcases really make a difference?
Definitely! Silk pillowcases don’t just make for a better, more comfortable sleep experience, they can also benefit the skin and hairDue to the smooth surface of the silk, hair and skin glide easily over the fabric, never pulling, creasing, or causing friction. This helps to smooth the hair, causing less frizziness, and you'll wake up with no face creases from your pillow. Silk also does not zap hydration from the skin like cotton or other synthetic materials do, which supports skin from depleting natural moisture levels, as well as keeping any products you've applied at night actually on your skin rather than absorbing into the fabric.
We've taken our design one step further and infused hyaluronic acid into the silk fibers, thus supporting hydration and adding to the beneficial effects silk has on your hair and skin.
Is Hydroluna made entirely with silk?
Yes! Sutera Hydroluna pillowcases are made of 100% 22 Momme Mulberry Silk. Unlike other brands that use synthetic or a combination of materials that can cause more friction and irritation, Hydroluna is made with all-natural, premium silk which contains no toxic chemicals, making it a better option for your skin and hair.
What should I know about hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a naturally-occurring substance in our body that promotes skin hydration and wellness through water retention. As we age, our body’s ability to produce it can decrease significantly due to various factors. Supplemental application of hyaluronic acid has been shown to also aid in the restoration and overall healing of the skin. Topical application of hyaluronic acid can help lock in moisture and nutrients to your hair. It helps retain over 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells, which aids in hydrating and revitalizing the scalp and helps promote healthier looking hair!
What size is the Hydroluna pillowcase?
HydroLuna is a Queen-size pillowcase and is about 20 x 30 inches. It should fit most Queen-sized pillows you have available at home.
How do I care for my Hydroluna pillowcase?
Although our 22 momme pillowcase is an extremely durable material when it comes to silk, you still need to be gentle when washing and maintaining Hydroluna. When caring for your pillowcase, wash on a light cycle using a gentle, pH neutral detergent and cold water-we recommend using a gentle silk detergent. It is important to air dry your pillowcases as opposed to machine drying. DO NOT dry clean or use bleach on your Hydroluna pillowcase. Avoid any oil based cleaners/sprays that will degrade the silk materal.
