Silky skin, simply and sustainably! Part of the conscious and slow living movement, Sustainable Strings has a no machines, no factory, no chemicals and no electricity policy. A necessary initiative powered through passion, Sustainable Strings was founded with the aim of uplifting a community by sculpting their already existing skills into something profitable. All products are made by the hands of a community which has been uplifted through skill development and initiatives powered by the Sustainable Strings brand.
Crafted by hand, Silk Beauty Cocoons are made from the remnants of broken silk cocoons which would otherwise go to waste. Laced with skin-boosting proteins, natural anti-ageing elements, hydration minerals and exfoliating properties, Silk Beauty Cocoons leave your face feeling smooth, refreshed and luminous! Silk is a natural superhero ingredient, working to enforce your skin barrier through hydration, nourishment and soothing elements that repair skin cells and help heal wounds and fade scars.
Silk naturally contains Sericin and Fibroin proteins, which have a very similar mineral composition to the Collagen fibres that keep our skin looking and feeling healthy. Sericin works to form a protective layer on our skin to promote hydration while Fibroin works to repair our skin barrier and preserve healthy skin cells. Fibroin also contains a high percentage of Glycine and Alanine, which are bound to our skin cells as they are absorbed, leaving your skin feeling hydrated and looking luminous. Besides being a powerhouse for your skin, Silk Beauty Cocoons also work toward a greener future as they are 100% biodegradable, compostable and eco-friendly.
Made from 100% natural silk that would have otherwise been wasted and crafted by the communities of developing countries, Sustainable Strings stays true to their name while pursuing their purpose. With sustainability at the core of every process and product, Silk Beauty Cocoons are a simple step toward healthier skin and a happier planet!
