Silk has been used in the East for skin and body care for thousands of years. In ancient Chinese medicine, silk was used to help in the healing of wounds and for the care of sensitive skin, in India it was used for massage.
Today in cosmetics it is a highly prized natural powder containing 18 amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein and are essential to our skin and our health. Due to its unique properties it is an excellent moisturiser for dry skin but helps absorbs excess oil when applied to oily skin. For acne prone skin Silk Powder is a marvel as it contains both anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which help balance the ph levels. It is a natural sunscreen, and helpful in reflecting UV rays and has the ability to help renew old or damaged cells, thereby reducing the signs of ageing and it can also help in reducing irregular pigmentation.
If all that wasn't enough, it is a wonderful addition to any formulated loose powder mineral foundation for that added touch of luxury as it is super silky. It also makes an incredible primer. Just scatter a little onto a cosmetic sponge and massage into freshly cleaned skin before applying your mineral foundation. It will not only give your foundation extra adhesion, it will also add extra nourishment and if applied after your foundation Silk Powder makes an amazing veil. Notice how it gives your skin that soft focus effect, this is due to its light scattering properties.
Note: If your skin looks white after applying Silk Powder, you have used too much - with silk less is more.
Stored in a closed container at normal room temperature in dry conditions Silk Powder has a shelf life of up to 2 years.
