Silk has been synonymous with luxury and beauty for thousands of years. The fabric is renowned for its sensual feel, and its liquid extracts help protect skin’s natural moisture.

Silk extracts are easily absorbed into the skin, allowing powerful antioxidants and amino acids to help repair cells, promote cell regeneration and condition the skin for improved elasticity and resilience.

History
