One of the best things about being a beauty writer is the possibility of discovering the next great thing and being able to spread the word to my friends, family and the masses which is why I’m always excited when I’m asked to try a new product or line that I’ve never sampled beforeâ€¦and after trying Silk Therapeutics for a few weeks, I’m happy to report that it’s the latest line worth knowing about.
Silk Therapeutics is for anyone looking for clean, safe, effective, anti-aging products. In fact, each of the products are formulated to contain only what is necessary and effective, without any extra added ingredients. I spoke with Dr. Gregory H. Altman, PhD, CEO of Silk Therapeutics, Inc. and found out what makes these products stand out from the pack.
- Silk has a molecular structure and amino acid composition very similar to that found in human skin. Its unique protein structure allows it to immediately penetrate your skin to help produce healthy collagen, while actively firming and smoothing.When you apply silk, it immediately begins to firm skin, lock in moisture, let in oxygenâ€”and shield out everything else. Silk protects your skin leaving it feeling smooth, clean and beautiful, and over time helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
- It uses pure natural silk in liquid form, used to replace less expensive synthetic additives like alcohol, silicone and petrolatum. By harnessing the power of silk, we deliver active ingredients for maximum results while eliminating all harsh chemicals and preservatives that may have a negative impact on your skin and overall health.
- Silk products contain only active, effective, risk-free ingredients you can trust. The result is the cleanest, safest and most effective option for our customerâ€™s anti-aging needs made from the fewest ingredients.
I was sent a number of their products to try including the Fine Line Lifting Film, Silk Smoothing Complex, Silk Renewing Peel, Silky Eye Revive, Silk Nourishing Moisturizer, Silk Intensive C Serum and I have to admit that immediately after applying them, my skin felt silky-soft and looked more even-toned and firmer, very easy to get accustomed to. What took a little longer to get used to was the consistency of these products. They’re slightly watery instead of creamy, precisely what allows them to be easily absorbed and deliver the extra potent active ingredients.
I enjoyed using them all but the standout for me is definitely the Silk Renewing Peel ($70), also the brand’s best-seller. It promised to offer all the benefits of a peel without any of the downsides and it really delivered on that promise. This once-a-week treatment contains Water, Silk, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Lemongrass Essential Oil. That’s it! I smoothed a dime-sized amount onto my clean face and left it on for 5 or 6 minutes — it can be left on up to 10 minutes — before rinsing with warm water and patting dry. Immediately, my skin was smoother, brighter, tighter and had a wonderful glow. There was no post-peel redness, dryness or irritation that I’ve been known to experience after some peelsâ€¦I mean none!
The Silk Renewing Peel is now part of my weekly skincare regimen. If you care about your outer glow, I recommend you do the same.
