Frequently Asked Questions about Exfoliating with silk
What is exfoliating?
Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation tool. We believe our raw silk noil washcloths are superior as they do not irritate the skin.
What is special about using the raw silk noil washcloth as an exfoliation tool?
The texture of raw silk can be surprising. It feels rather stiff, cotton-like, and you can see the little "slubs" in it. This is the NATURAL properties of silk noil. It does, however, "loosen up" with repeated washing, to a very soft and relaxed point.
What's the best way to use the washcloth?
Moisten washcloth in warm-hot tap water and very gently glide over the skin in a circular motion.
How do I wash the cloth? To maintain the benefits of sericin in the fabric, wash in cool to warm water. Using soap or other gentle cleaners will most likely be fine (read the ingredients first--no bleach!). Air dry or machine dry on low heat.
