Factorfive has launched Nourishing Silk, designed to help the skin recover after harsh rejuvenating facial treatments.

Factorfive’s Nourishing Silk is designed to speed up recovery times after skin treatments such as laser, micro needling, plasma, and chemical peels.

Nourishing Silk combines human stem cell conditioned media that helps the skin repair itself, with beneficial skin ingredients like peptides, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and others that work to visibly soothe, plump, and soften skin.

It delivers a soothing layer of hydration while calming and protecting sensitive skin. Nourishing Silk speeds up recovery time with full results expected after 12 weeks, according to Factorfive.

Unlike similar products that have a waterless base formulated from silicones, Nourishing Silk has a base consisting of water and triheptanoin, a skin-softening emollient.

Silicones can prevent the skin’s natural expulsion of debris, oils, dead cells, and dirt which can increase the likelihood of acne breakouts and glandular occlusion, according to Factorfive.

Nourishing Silk contains many of the same positive properties as silicones, however, the base washes off easily and is not characterized by acne breakouts, pore-clogging, or other negative side effects.

It contains no harsh ingredients such as parabens, mineral oil, sulfate detergents, phthalates, urea, DEA, or TEA, and is never tested on animals. Nourishing Silk is fragrance and silicone-free and is safe and effective for all skin types, including mature ones.
