Studies show that silk proteins can have incomparable benefits to the human body and are also widely used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes.
The two proteins in silk, fibroin and sericin, are like miracle cures. Fibroin, silk’s filaments (its building blocks), stimulate the skin to produce more collagen, improving its bounce and elasticity, and speed up cellular regeneration, which helps with healing and scarring.
Sericin, the glue which binds these filaments together, rebuilds and restores damaged hair by strengthening keratin bonds, coating the hair cuticle, and sealing in moisture. They’re like a perfect, natural cure for fine lines, skin problems, and hair breakage. It truly is remarkable.
Silk is a perfect saviour when suffering maskne. Mulberry silk masks contain natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. They also contain natural cellular albumen which speeds up the metabolism of skin cells. The sericin residue in silk fabric is a natural repellent that keeps away bacteria, mould and other common allergens. It’s the perfect choice for those with particularly sensitive skin, as it’s free of any potentially irritating added chemicals so it can be worn safe in the knowledge that there’s no risk of causing an eczema flare-up, skin rashes and redness.
