The DermaSilk Facial Mask covers the head and forehead, chin and neck, balaclava-style, offering the healing properties of Dermasilk’s Microbe Shield technology in these difficult-to-treat areas.The stretchy knitted fabric allows you to position the Mask over the nose and lips if you wish.
The breathable medical grade silk of the Facial Mask retains moisture without feeling damp, and is bonded to a Microbe Shield™ that inhibits bacterial and fungal growth. No chemicals are released onto the skin and the Mask will remain effective after repeated washes.
There are 2 sizes:
to fit babies and infants up to 1yr (head circumference about 39-47cm)
to fit children 1-8yrs (head circumference about 48-50cm)
In clinical trials 83% of children with atopic dermatitis using DermaSilk showed an improvement in their condition.
