Silkkin was started for a personal need: a better material that helps prevent breakouts. Our goal is to provide you with the highest-quality products that make you look and feel fabulous.
How It Started:
With 2020, came masks. And with masks, came mask acne - also known as "maskne." I had struggled with acne as a teenager, but with the combination of a good skincare routine, a decent diet and my hormones under control, all this new acne was a mystery to me!
I went to the dermatologist, tried new skincare products, started retinol... you name it! And still, breakouts and pimples were popping up. So I started paying attention to when these breakouts happened. And then, after a road trip, I came back with the worst acne I've experienced. It then hit me... it was my mask!!
After going down the rabbit hole of google, I found out I wasn't the only one. Thousands of other people were suffering from maskne.
I was officially annoyed enough to make it my new mission to find a solution.
After a lot of research, samples, trial and error, I had a solution: masks made from the highest-grade of silk.
How It's Going:
Since launching, the response to Silkkin has been amazing! We have been able to grow our team, including an amazing co-founder, and serve thousands of customers.
As I searched for ways to continue to provide the perfect complements to my skincare routine, my partner (who was just recently introduced to face wash, yet has flawless skin) asked: "Why are you taking so much care of your face to then put it on an old pillowcase all night?"
Ah! There it was: we need a full-rounded set of skin-friendly products. My new rule became "if my face touches it, I'm investing in it."
Our product line has now grown to include Silk Pillowcases, Silk Scrunchies (get that hair out of your face girl!) and even laundry bags to keep your silk clean and shiny. We have been featured on Success Magazine's Holiday Gift Guide, Databird's 100 Female Founders and Top 10 Facemasks.
And on a more personal note, my skin is much happier now :)
So thank you for joining along, and I hope that you're able to enjoy our products as much as we do!
