Dermasilk fabric is knitted from undyed medical grade pure silk bonded with an antimicrobial that has been used in hospitals for over 20 years to promote healing. This Microbe Shield™ has been proven in clinical trials to inhibit bacterial and fungal growth, helping to heal skin with eczema, psoriasis and infections. Importantly, the Microbe Shield™ remains effective wash after wash and doesn't release chemicals or nano-particles onto the skin.
Dermasilk fabric is superior to cotton because it retains up to 30 % of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp or causing irritation to the skin. Worn daily as part of your normal treatment programme, DermaSilk helps to reduce the terrible 'itch-scratch cycle' and control flare-ups. Its special knitted construction means there's free movement of air through the fabric allowing the skin to breathe more easily and promoting faster healing .DermaSilk is cool and breathable and helps maintains a stable moisture balance on your skin, keeping it supple.
