Best Silk Pillow Cases: Review and Comparison

Silk and Satin have been all they hype in the beauty world the past couple of years. Why? It’s because of the fact that the less friction between hair, skin and the pillow case, the less wrinkles and the better you hair will be. No more frizz!  If you are on a budget, you can go for Satin pillow cases made of polyester and still reap the benefits. Silk pillow cases tend to be more expensive, definitely on the more luxurious side. I have purchased several types over the past couple of years, and would like to share my two cents and compare them to better help you decide.


Product: ZIMASILK 100% Mulberry          Silk Pillowcase for Hair and Skin,with Hidden Zipper, Momme Silk, 1pc
Price: $21.99 + Free Shipping/ 1 pillow case
Cheapest Place to Buy:
Size: Queen, King, Standard
Colors: Available in 20 colors
Material: Mulberry Silk

  • What I like about this product is that it is silk on both sides, with a 600 thread count making it extra smooth, perfect for hair and skin.
  • It has  hidden zipper
  • Comes in all known dimensions, I use the king size for my pillows
  • The only Con is the price, I tend to need 2-4 pillow cases per person, this can get pricey. But since it is 100% silk, the price is justified.

Below are 3 Satin pillow cases made with Polyester but have a very smooth feel and are very durable.

Cheapest Place to Buy: Amazon .com
Size: Standard , Queen, & King
Colors: Available in 10 colors
Material: Polyester

  • Material: High Quality Polyester Satin pillowcase, similar to the thickness of 25mm real silk material
  • This pillow case can be machine washed, but i recommend using a gentle cycle and cold water. Also better to let it air dry.
  • One additional reason I like this one is because they state that their pillowcases are Free of Formaldehyde tested by SGS (which is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company)

Verdict: My first choice will definitely be the first one, the Zimasilk made with 100%silk , but if I am  on a budget and need several, I would go for the last one, the Yani best pillow case, I love the trim design on it, makes it look more luxurious.

  1. Hi – wanted to send you a quick note how much I really like this post – my wife has been asking me to buy here some silk pillow cases and I had no idea until I came across your site – awesome information – many thanks for the help as I too am on a tight budget and will go for the Yanibest option

  2. I always love the products you find. You mention that the EXQ Home Satin Pillowcase set is hypoallergenic, but then you state that the product is based of 100% Polyester microfiber. Do you know if this is treated with Purotex? Purotex has been used  to help alleviate excessive allergens in your bedroom.

    It’s an interesting concept.

    When friction is created between the pillow and the sleeper’s body the probiotics are activated. Body and fabric friction forces small parts of the treatment’s capsules to opened and activate the probiotics. The probiotics saturate the bacterial capacity of the fabric and by doing so, reduce the risk of dust mite allergen development. It also aids in stunting the growth of molds and harmful bacteria.

    Do you have any information on this?


    1. I love how informed you are! for the EXQ satin pillowcase,the manufacturer indicated it is hypoallergenic but not sure on what basis and what they use.
      I am an avid follower of skincare and haircare trends, and for the past few years alot of research has been made concerning the effect of silk or satin on skin and hair, mainly as you mentioned because a smooth surface reduces the friction between the skin and hair against the pillow, which can result in less breakage (hair) and less skin irritation. As for probiotics and bacteria, I don’t have info on that, thank you for your insight!

  3. This is a timely post for me – I’m in the process of replacing the silk/satin pillow cases that I use now, and I’m glad to see you’ve placed these options here :). The first one you’ve listed there seems like a really nice and high-quality product, which is just what I need. Thanks for sharing!
