Founder of award-winning, luxury brand This Is Silk, Sonal Keay suffers with a rare, sensitive skin condition and high quality silk is the only thing that soothes it. She left her career as a barrister to develop the finest 22 momme, sustainably produced 100% mulberry silk products to help others find solutions to sensitive skin, thinning hair and restless sleep.
Using silk cleansing cloths, pillowcases, towels, hair wraps, eye and face masks prevents harmful friction caused by cotton, regulates body heat, keeps oils and moisturisers on the skin and hair and prevents fine lines, ageing, hair breakage and frizz. It is breathable, eco-friendly and looks and feels beautiful.
Silk is similar to our skin and the amino acids soothe and nourish our skin, preventing friction and ageing.
Silk is popular with people with thinning hair. Cotton snags hair and prevents regrowth – silk actively encourages hair growth.
Founder Sonal Keay is a silk expert and a great spokesperson on the scientific benefits of using silk.
