With more silk products popping up in the market in recent times, we dive in to find out more about this comeback trend and its benefits. Also, read till the end for a contest and giveaway!
Try and Review had a chance to chat with Christina, the founder of Puffle Beauty to share with us more about her brand. Puffle Beauty is an online store in Singapore selling mulberry silk products. Letting us in on the miracles of silk, Christina shares her love for them with us.
Introduce your brand, Puffle Beauty to us.
Christina: “The Puffle Beauty brand presents a luxurious lifestyle through clothing and home goods using environmentally sustainable fabrics and materials.”
Why mulberry silk? What are the best qualities of the material?
Christina: “By nature, silk absorbs less moisture and dirt from our skin and hair as compared to cotton or synthetic fabrics. This means that our skincare and hair products will not go to waste!
Products made from mulberry silk are buttery soft which helps to reduce friction to both skin and hair. Who doesn’t want to delay aging, prevent hair frizziness and maintain cell vitality? More importantly, silk products are anti-microbial and hypoallergenic hence are less susceptible to mold and bacteria growth.”
How popular are silk accessories in Singapore?
Christina: “We notice the scrunchies trend coming back as well as new home owners looking for luxurious pillowcases in humid Singapore.
We would still like to share the benefits of silk and hopefully gain more exposure within the market.”
What are your bestsellers?
Christina: “Our sunset trio are highly sought after! These grade 6A Mulberry silk scrunchies are 1cm in width each and of 22 momme silk thread count.
Our pillowcases are very popular amongst couples as well!”
Who or what sparked your love for silk products?
Christina: “These silk products are so soft and comfortable on skin and hair. As a mom, I hardly have time to doll up and find that these scrunchies make my daily dressing effortlessly classier. Also, my husband and I have different sleep times, and the surrounding lights may be too glaring for me to get some rest. The silk eye mask comes to my rescue and love that it is cooling on my skin.”
Are there any other brands selling silk products that you adore?
Christina: “I was inspired by Slip! Slip is a brand from the US, and they sell pretty much all silk products too but are not as affordable and decided that silk products should be affordable for everyone!”
In your opinion, what is the future of silk products?
Christina: “In ancient times, silk is reserved for royalties and used by nobilities only. I envision Puffle Beauty to bring in silk products for every one and make them economical for everyone.
