What are the benefits of silk face mask?

Wearing a mask becomes the new norm worldwide. Something many of us has experienced due to so much mask-wearing is Maskne (acne caused by face masks). That's why investing in a 100% silk mask has been so popular as there are many benefits that come with using this fabric. Let's dig into the benefits in detail.

1. Antimicrobial

SILVADUR™ harnesses the power of silver ions to eliminate odor-causing microbes and prevent material degradation. So your mask will keep its shape, smell fresh, and stay bacteria-free even when worn for prolonged periods of time.

2. Effective Double Layer Protection 

Research suggests silk is one of the most effective materials for face masks because of its tight-weave and hydrophobic properties. “Hydrophobic” refers to silk repelling water. So as a face covering, silk excels at stopping water droplets from penetrating its surface!

Plus, our face masks are fabricated with two layers of silk for double the protection. They also feature a handy inner pocket, for those who wish to add a filter. If you prefer to use a filter, our 100% Silk Face Mask Set is another excellent option, as it comes with four filters and a nose wire.

3. Gentle on Skin

There are so many benefits of silk for your skin! Mulberry silk, in particular, is one of the softest, finest natural materials in the world. Not only is it supremely gentle on the skin, it’s also the most hypoallergenic fabric, so it’s perfect for those with allergies or sensitivities.

4. Promotes a Healthy Complexion

Beyond being gentle on skin, silk actually promotes a healthy complexion. The tightly woven, smooth fibers of silk help your skin retain moisture and stay hydrated. Plus, silk’s hypoallergenic properties repel bacteria, which helps prevent breakouts!

5. Cooling and Lightweight

Silk is both cooling and incredibly lightweight, making it perfect for warmer days and all-day wear. Silk also tends to naturally adjust to body temperature, which means it will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.
