Default silkworm cleanser finger thingies

What the whatttawutwut? New to me! Wasn't sure where to post this and I don't have any idea what to think about it. I don't think silk for soap comes this way. What do you guys think? They aren't the kind of things I'm likely to fiddle with but I could see using them and adding spent ones to batches of soap, assuming they would dissolve.

Yup. It's hot fuzz in Asia! Pun intended.
Haven't use it, but I can picture how it works.

Just imagine silk act as microfiber clothes / muslin clothes for your face and nose. Theoretically.

Need some curious soaper who use cocoons ( not silk clothes, or silk peptides ) to report if it actually workable.

It will dissolve in lye water, but you have to break it into pieces & soak it in water first.

I read the reviews there and found it quite interesting. I am almost tempted to buy some for my granddaughter to use in her facial cleansing routine.

I like how part of the title is "Beauty Tool 3 Size No Pain."

Ages ago I was a bicycle messenger in NYC and it was kind of a rule-of-thumb that courier companies were named for what they were not. Perfect Careful Couriers, for example, was thought to be neither perfect nor careful.

I learned later that this rule is generalizable to a lot of products and services.

Unfortunately I am out of cocoons but I will mention they are quite rough which would add exfoliating. Not sure if they will start to loosen their silk since it usually takes boiling to unwind the silk. I would rather stick to Silk Amino Acid, which can be added into emulsified scrubs and lotions. Since I am out of cocoons, which I use for soap, I am going to order a bag and try these, since I recently used my last cocoon and they are considerably less costly versus my regular supplier of cocoons

Carolyn, I am glad you are going to try them in soap. Curiously awaiting your results. I expect, though the delivery time will be longer than usual, because they are imported.
