5 Benefits of Mulberry Silk
1. Promotes Healthy Hydration
Hydration is essential for good health. Unlike cotton and other fabrics that draw out your skin’s natural oils and moisture (not to mention the products you apply during your beauty routine), mulberry silk helps you retain all that goodness. Helping you to stay looking fresh and radiant!
2. Prevents Wrinkles
Mulberry silk is smooth and soft, which prevents any tugging or pulling on your face while you sleep. Traditional cotton and synthetic fabrics create friction with your skin, causing lines and wrinkles to form while you sleep.
3. Tames Frizzy Hair
There’s a reason they say “silky smooth.” Silk’s natural texture allows hair to glide over it without any friction (are you seeing the pattern here?) This means that you get to say “goodnight” to bedhead, tangles, knots, and morning frizz. Silk also helps to keep your blowout looking fresher, longer!
4. Prevents Acne
Silk helps to protect your skin’s natural moisture barrier with its natural breathability and smooth texture. The breathability helps your body to regulate its temperature, reducing the amount of sweat you produce throughout the night while the smooth texture prevents clogged pores and skin dehydration.
5. It’s A Natural Fibre
And finally, silk is a naturally soft fibre, which means it doesn’t require chemical treatments to achieve its luxurious feel. You can rest easy knowing that you’re draping yourself in a high-quality product that’s also non-toxic and free from harsh additives.
Silk is the fabric your highest self deserves!
