Gently exfoliate your lips: a small cocoon of silk provides care

Lips are often mistreated by the cold, the sun and certain toothpastes. Covered with skin and a hypersensitive mucous membrane (red part), they get damaged and chapped, cracked lips can be uncomfortable and very painful. There are many care and natural products: lip balm with beeswax, almond oil, shea butter, honey, aloe vera, etc. Yes, but to apply your creams, balms and care products, you must have removed the dead skin. Look at the effect of a lipstick on damaged lips: despite the beauty of the color and texture of your lipstick, you can see those little unsightly dead skins in relief. Exfoliation is a necessary step to allow the application of a lip care or lipstick.

This is where the silk cocoon comes in: to exfoliate gently, you need a natural product that allows you toremove dead skin without damaging the lips. Exfoliating can sometimes be too aggressive: with apricot pits or sugar grains, the micro-beads will abrade the skin. But the skin of the lips is too sensitive. The silk cocoon, on the other hand, gently exfoliates and provides care at the same time.

A deliciously gentle exfoliation for the lips: what are the properties of silk cocoons?

The silk cocoon is composed of the two main proteins of silk: fibroin and sericin. Fibroin is what will later become the silk thread: it is what will gently exfoliate your skin and your lips in particular. Sericin is a protein rich in many amino acids, and it has the advantage of being bio-similar to collagen. It will deeply nourish the skin cells.

The beauty gesture is simple: leave the silk cocoon to soak for a few minutes in warm water (preferably mineral water). When it is slightly softened, put it on your fingertip. Make a circular gesture on the skin of the face and the lips. You can insist on blackheads and areas with imperfections, like the wings of the nose for example. By making these small circular movements on the lips, you will gently exfoliate them.

Rinse the silk cocoon with water and let it air dry. Once dry, it can be stored and used again, two or three times. This gentle scrub should be done once, twice or three times a week, depending on your needs.

After exfoliation, your skin and lips are ready for the next part of your skincare routine, as the exfoliation has created the optimal conditions for hydration and regeneration. You can then apply your cream, serum, lotion, or any balm that will provide complementary care to your skin and lips.

The ancestral beauty gesture: the silk cocoon has been used for centuries for the face and lips

The silk cocoon scrub is known to Japanese women as a beauty treatment, and this for several centuries. Historians have found traces of an expedition that, in 300 B.C., brought to Japan some eggs and four young Chinese women who were going to teach Japanese women the art of beauty and textile with silk, silk fiber and silk threads.

Today, we discover the reasons for this use of silk in beauty: the proteins in silk are excellent for the skin and hair. Silk is naturally anti-allergic (better than hypoallergenic: allergies to silk do not exist), anti-bacterial and anti-dust mite. Its hydrophobic properties are also interesting for skin care, especially with silk pillowcases.

So if natural silk is a gift from nature, for skin and lip care, how can we be sure that the product is natural?

This delicate silk cocoon of unparalleled purity, where does it come from? From the Cevennes, in France!

It is in the Cevennes that the mulberry bombyx is cultivated, which produces this beautiful silk cocoon. In the village of Monoblet, located in the heart of the Cévennes regional nature park, all the farmers are in organic farming. This guarantees cocoons free of pollutants and pesticides.
Then, it is the stage of preparation of the cocoons which is important: the cocoons of the French beauty silk industry are cleaned by hand and with water. They are then sterilized. No chemical agent, no bleaching agent: these cocoons are naturally white. We guarantee that they are not treated with any preservative, whitener or perfume. The traceability of the cocoons, the excellence of its production, and our strong commitment to products that are good for you and for the planet are what we hold dear.

Finally, beyond the fact that cocoons are an ultra-healthy natural beauty care, it is a whole sector that is paid at the right price: from the cocoon producer to the distribution.

Why choose a French silk industry? For traceability, to guarantee naturalness and cocoons without pollutants, pesticides or chemical bleaching agents
