SILKY COLLECTION for DRY SKIN & MATURING APPEARANCE
SILKY CLEANSE & TONE –
Natures best pH balanced soap replacement for the face and body.
Skin is naturally slightly acidic (pH 4.5). The water we use to bathe & shower is quite alkaline (pH 7 to 9) so …. it makes sense to cleanse the skin with a product that is also slightly acidic to save the body the effort of re-establishing it’s own pH balance (this can take over 12 hours depending on how long you swam/soaked/showered).
Like any other natural bodily function and immune response, the body must re-establish it’s natural condition or levels before it can properly combat aging, toxins, daily damage, injury, or illness.
SILKY Cleanse & Tone uses organic apple cider vinegar with green tea and the SILKY Blend powerhouse essential oils, frankincense, myrrh, rosehip & patchouli, to gently balance the pH of skin and reduce fine lines, creases, wrinkles, scars, white spots and dark spots, discoloration, uneven tone and rough texture while improving elasticity, firmness, sagging, puffiness, irritation and youthful radiance.
THE FACE: Spray this delicious, fragrant cleanser & toner straight onto the face (eyes closed) and massage in well before wiping excess away with a DRY cloth OR spray liberally on a dry, disposable makeup wipe to cleanse face in upward – outward strokes. Using a wipe is my favorite, even though it’s not very environmental, for the really obvious dirt and gunk that comes off my face onto the wipe.
THE BODY: use water only in the shower with a loofa or bath brush. Then, after toweling dry, mist the entire body, concentrating on underarms, private areas and feet, to quickly re-establish pH levels while deodorizing. Every time you do this you save the body the effort of re-balancing it’s own pH while maintaining cleansed, natural oils and flora levels.
SILKY SERUM –
Couxcoux Cayman Coconut Oil is combined with the SILKY Blend of powerhouse essential oils to create our SILKY Serum.
Research on coconut oil, frankincense, myrrh, rosehip and patouli essential oils, the SILKY blend, shows these oils can reduce fine lines, creases, wrinkles, scars, white spots and dark spots, discoloration, uneven tone and rough texture while improving elasticity, firmness, sagging, puffiness, irritation and youthful radiance.
Use SILKY Serum to moisturize & purify the face after applying SILKY Cleanse & Tone.
Apply 3 to 4 drops of SILKY serum to the fingertips and spread out onto the entire face area, massaging thoroughly for approximately 90 seconds OR apply 6 to 9 drops of SILKY serum to a disposable/washable makeup wipe and spread onto the entire face area, massaging thoroughly for 90 seconds. After 90 seconds the skin will have absorbed all it can so: use a dry cloth or tissue to wipe away any noticeable excess oil for a beautiful, smooth matte appearance.
SILKY SALVE –

SILKY SCRUB –
A chemical free, all natural “soap & body wash replacement” for the body in the bath & shower.
SILKY Scrub contains: Couxcoux Coconut Oil based SILKY Serum combined with organic: sea salt (detox), cane sugar (moisturize), ground coffee beans (stimulate & rejuvenate), lemon & lime juice (detox & cleanse), and turmeric powder (detox). These yummy ingredients will thoroughly cleanse, deodorize, exfoliate, MOISTURIZE, detoxify, rejuvenate, and nourish skin …. All In One Step …. while avoiding the dehydrating, harsh lye that’s in anything that lathers or foams.
Get wet in the shower, remove a body part from the shower spray and put on a pinch of SILKY scrub. Massage outwards, spreading the scrub onto a larger area, until most of the granules dissolve. Rinse lightly with water only. Repeat to all body parts. Get out of the shower and simply towel dry. Follow with a mist of SILKY Cleanse & Tone, concentrating on areas where SILKY scrub can’t go, to balance pH levels and you’re set.
You will be clean, deodorized, exfoliated AND moisturized!
Should you need a little extra moisturizer on your shins, forearms or hands, check out our Silky Salve.
SOAP is made of OIL (fat) and LYE (traditionally: hardwood ash – today: sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide) and LYE is EXTREMELY alkaline.
Lye might be good for hard surfaces, clothes, pots and pans or anything else that needs to be not greasy but, it’s waaaaayy too alkaline for skin and it causes chronic flaky, crepey dehydration.
There’s no such thing as a “gentle soap” for sensitive skin – all that means is the soap manufacturer increased the ratio of OIL (synthetic or natural) to the decreased the ratio of LYE.
The only reason our ancestors made, or used soap, is because they could not afford to use any of their fresh food supply to wash their skin. Often, they were starving or under threat of food shortages. Portions of fat, or drippings, from cooking meat and ashes from the fire were definitely something that could be spared for washing up.
Soap has been around for a long time but ancient people did not use soap for bathing or personal hygiene. They only used oils, leaves, teas and flowers to cleanse, purify and freshen their skin. Perhaps these ancient people knew that: it’s not the LYE that kills bacteria and virus …. it’s the tea tree oil, or frankincense oil, or geranium oil, or carrot seed oil, or peppermint leaf & oil or today: triclosan.
So …. SKIP the LYE part right??? Go straight to the oils …. ever seen Spartacus? Yum!! I could watch him “wash up” all day!!
