"Raw silk noil" is a nubby fabric that is ideal for exfoliating the face and stimulating circulation of the skin.
The somewhat rough texture softens over time, with repeated washings. Safe for all skin types. I keep my cloth in the shower to remove dead skin cells, make-up, and "sleep crust" shed by the eyes during sleep. Hang up to dry and it's ready for use the next day.
Raw silk is made up of sericin fibers running in different pattern directions. Sericin is noted for improving skin elasticity and carries anti-aging, anti-wrinkle factors. Packed with 18 amino acids, it's often found in cosmetics as well as wound therapy for regenerative healing.
