Highest quality cocoons (package of 10) made out of 100% silk, using only natural ultra-fine fibers. All the cocoons are hollowed out, so you can easily slip it onto your finger. The silkworm cocoons contain a protein called Sericin that is produced by the silkworms.
As part of ancient skincare, these silkworm cocoons are meant to be used as exfoliators; they remove impurities, dead skin, and make up residue while hydrating your skin. Sericin itself has 18 amino acids that move to work as you gently scrub your face with the cocoon. Sericin behaves like a thin layer over the skin that keeps moisture in and impurities out. It also helps to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production to keep your skin elastic and reduce wrinkles.
Please note that these cocoons are 100% natural product produced by silkworms, and occasional discoloration is also natural. It doesn't impact effectiveness of cocoons.
For best results, it's recommended to use cocoons for 4 weeks contentiously. This is how long it takes your skin to regenerate itself.
HOW TO USE
Wash your face with your usual facial cleansers first. Soak cocoons in warm water for 10-20 minutes. Make sure that the entire silkworm cocoon is submerged. The rationale for soaking it in warm water is for the Sericin within the silk fibres to be released. Soaking the cocoon also helps to soften it; you’ll be surprised to find out how firm these cocoons are, they do not yield easily. Fit the cocoon onto your finger and start gently massage the cocoon around your face. Key word here is gently, if too much force is used, it may end up damaging your skin. Focus on troubled areas that you feel need a little more care! Continue on with your usual skincare regime.
Our silkworm cocoons can be reused up to 3 times, just find a clean container to dry them out and store for future use. The cocoon’s gentle nature makes exfoliating every alternate day possible, although people with sensitive skin could put in more days between each exfoliation as you’ll do with usual exfoliators.
People with acne and break outs should not re-use their cocoons. Please use a new cocoon every time.
