In 2003, then 20th Century FOX Films State Manager, Fiona Stewart was prescribed acne medication which resulted in extremely sensitive skin and thinning hair. Her dermatologist suggested sleeping on a silk pillowcase. Unable to find one, she sourced the best silk she could find and wrapped it around her pillow. The results were dramatic and immediate. She’s never looked back. She had stumbled upon a long forgotten beauty secret - and slip® was born. The following year, Stewart, alongside partner Justin Dubois, officially launched slip® - the first silk pillowcase to be branded and marketed as a beauty product.
