Product & Company

What is Silvi made from?

Both our pillowcase and eye mask are made from 22 Momme 100% Mulberry silk (6A, the highest possible grading). The silk is treated with anti-bacterial silver ions, reducing bacteria by 99.97%.

What skin issues does Silvi help with?

Silvi naturally kills acne-causing bacteria and will help prevent:

  • Breakouts (pimples)
  • Dry or oily skin
  • Blackheads & whiteheads

The benefits of silk also:

  • Improve skin's collagen retention
  • Help regulate skin's oil

What are 'acne-causing' bacteria?

Great question! Silvi's Silver Ion Technology works to eliminate two primary types of bacteria, Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes) [1] and Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) [2]

Both of these bacteria have been linked to acne vulgaris (common acne), which causes pimples, inflamed skin, clogged pores, red papules and nodes. [3] [4]
