Award-winning silk accessories brand This is Silk has introduced its first skincare products.
Harnessing the brand’s knowledge of silk and the skincare benefits of silk peptides, the Silk Cream Cleanser and Silk Overnight Oil are formulated to leave skin feeling nourished, balanced and smooth as silk.
Silk peptides in skincare have been scientifically proven to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, increase elasticity, reduce hyperpigmentation, balance the skin and improve barrier function.
Radiance Renewed Silk Overnight Oil (RRP £39.99) is a potent facial oil containing silk peptides, bakuchiol and rosehip along with skin-nourishing essential oils to help repair and renew skin overnight. It can be used alone or mixed with moisturiser to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, plump and balance skin, and improve texture and tone.
Meanwhile, Silk Cream Cleanser with Silk Cleansing Cloth (RRP £39.99) is a rich, deeply nourishing formula packed with silk peptides, vitamin B5, chicory root extract, rice bran oil and mango seed butter. It cleanses thoroughly while helping to strengthen the skin barrier, and leaves skin feeling soft, hydrated and smooth. The Silk Cleansing Cloth, specially woven from raw silk noil fabric, provides gentle exfoliation to help brighten the skin.
This Is Silk was founded by Sonal Keay in 2017, who has become an expert in silk since using it to manage and soothe her own rare skin condition. The brand is independent family-run business based in the Cotswolds. Visit thisissilk.com for more information.
