Most of us have been told off by a parent or a partner for leaving mascara smudges on the bathroom towels. As sales of cosmetics rebound and we emerge from lockdown in a full face of make-up, founder of This Is Silk Sonal Keay has released her popular pure silk face cloths in black to save unsightly stains.
Sonal says: “Silk is a miracle material for cleansing the skin. My customers love my pure silk cleansing cloths but worry about staining the gorgeous cream silk with their make-up. I’ve listened to them.”
Silk is by far the best material to use in a cleansing routine. The natural amino acids leave skin noticeably radiant and delay the ageing process. Cotton is abrasive on a cellular level, and cleansing with flannel and muslin causes friction which leads to fine lines (don’t get Sonal started on face wipes).
The only problem with silk is that it can show make-up marks even when thoroughly washed clean on a delicate cycle. Sonal has solved this problem by naturally dying the cloths black with non-toxic dye.
This Is Silk’s 100% silk face cloths are the texture of muslin cloths, but with all the added benefits of silk amino acids. The unique weave of the Silk gently exfoliates, conditions and smooths skin, leaving it glowing with health. This Is Silk Cleansing Cloths in Noir are £21.99 for three: https://thisissilk.com/collections/silk-cleansing-cloths/products/silk-cleansing-cloths-in-noir-1
The silk cleansing cloths measure 30 x30 cm and are suitable for all skin types. They are machine washable using a detergent suitable for silk.
Samples on request.
About This Is Silk:
Cotswolds based This Is Silk was founded by Sonal Keay, who wanted to recreate the old-fashioned, thick and lustrous silk she remembers from her childhood, not the thin and flimsy fabric we see on the High Street. This Is Silk uses 22 momme weight of silk. This is heavier than most silk on the market and the superior grade means it is more lustrous, more durable and machine-washable. This Is Silk’s award winning products soothe and nourish skin and hair, are sustainably produced and biodegradable. This Is Silk pillowcases, hair wraps, heat free hair curlers and SILKBEBE cot sheets have featured in The Independent’s Indy Best review section.
