Why is mulberry silk good for skin and hair?
Silk is a natural fibre made up of proteins. It has amino acids which help in boosting collagen in the skin and keeps like young and crease free. Unlike cotton, silk absorbs much less moisture, thus keeping your skin and hair supple and hydrated. Silk is extremely gentle on your skin and is a naturally heat regulating fabric. Silk is an ideal fabric for people with skin conditions like acne, eczema, sunburn because of its hypoallergenic and non-toxic properties.
How is Charmeuse Mulberry Silk different from Polyester Satin?
Silk is a natural fiber whereas satin is a weave. Satin can be created by used silk or other materials. Mulberry Silk is made up of natural protein and feel soft and gentle. Polyester Satin is an artificial fabric, is slippery and simply can't match the gentle feel of Mulberry Silk. Producing Silk Fibre is a delicate and labour intensive work, whereas Polyester Satin is mass produced , is readily available and generally used by many as a cheaper counterpart. Being made from polymers and petroleum, Polyester Satin is not breathable or soothing to skin, it can cause you sweat profusely and can irritate the skin.

What is a Momme?
Momme is the Japanese type of weight estimation. Articulated "moe-mie" and shortened as "mm," momme communicates the weight in pounds of a bit of silk estimating 45 inches wide by 100 yards in length (1.2 m by 90 m). One momme = 4.340 grams per square meter. Only the weight of silk is measured by momme, and a higher momme doesn't necessarily mean a higher quality.
The standard scope of momme weight for various weaves of silk are:
Habutai—5 to 16 mm
Chiffon—6 to 8 mm
Crepe de Chine—12 to 16 mm
Organza—4 to 6 mm
Charmeuse—12 to 30 mm
The higher the weight in mommes, the more sturdy the weave, and better it is for solid use. We at Oud Living use 100 grams per square meter weight of charmeuse weave mulberry silk.
