Shhh Silk is a sleep, wellness and beauty brand focusing on improving people's lives through the power of sleep and self-care.
Who We Are
On the surface, we're a sleep, wellness and beauty brand, but joining the Shhh Silk community is so much more than that.
It's more than sleeping on a silk pillowcase to improve your skin, hair and sleep. It's even more than our luxuriously soft and silky premium high-grade 6A pure mulberry silk!
It's about you; you improving your sleep health and switching to cleaner, quality silk sleep, beauty and wellness products. Silk pillowcases that are soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic that allow your skin to breathe while sleeping. You no longer have to wake up with sleep lines on your face, and now you can enjoy extending your fresh blow dry for days, not hours!
It's about doing good, about supporting a small business that exists to give back to the community and has done so from day one. It's about coming on the journey with us, creating positive change for our planet and the people in our communities.
Doing good is in our DNA.
About Our Founder.
Sleep is a basic human right, not a luxury. But for our Founder, Olivia Carr, quality sleep was not always at the core of her daily self-care and wellness routine, leading to burnout and mental health.
Olivia first experienced the effects of sleep deprivation and interrupted sleep patterns when she became a single mother at age 20.
In 2001, Olivia juggled her new life as a young mother and balancing caring for her newborn child with full-time work. After months of lack of quality sleep, she found herself experiencing post-natal depression, a mood disorder faced by approximately 13% of new mothers, according to medical experts.
In the early 2000s, there wasn't much content or support for women experiencing mental health. So Olivia didn't have the tools available today to understand the importance of speaking up, slowing down and focusing on self-care.
In her thirties, Olivia was living the 'hustle, girl boss' lifestyle and experienced burnout, leading to her anxiety journey. At this point, Olivia's passion for slowing down and focusing on sleep quality and wellness started to grow.
Having experienced the calming effects of rubbing together silky fabric during moments of high stress or nervousness and the known beauty benefits of sleeping on silk for your hair and skin, it's no surprise that Olivia would launch a silk brand focused on sleep, wellness and beauty years later.
"Sleep is at the foundation of our health and wellbeing; for me, nothing is more important than a good night's sleep. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase is just one of the ways in which you can improve your sleep quality." - Olivia Carr, Founder, Shhh Silk
