Both satin and silk provide beauty benefits to the skin and hair!
Silk is a natural fabric and satin is a wrap dominated weaving technique. Silk is shiny from both sides but satin has a glossy surface and dull back. Silk is a stronger fabric than satin. Silk is the oldest fabric invented 12000 years ago in china but satin was found in middle age. Silk can be hand washed but satin sometimes needs dry clean.
ADVANTAGES OF SILK OVER SATIN

↪ It’s hypoallergenic. It’s naturally resistant to fungus, mold, mites, and allergens.
↪ It doesn’t involve synthetic materials. It’s a natural fiber, for those who wish to keep their beauty routine.
ADVANTAGES OF SATIN OVER SILK

↪ More readily available. Since satin is created from common materials like polyester, it’s much easier to find it.
