What to Expect

Piasecki MD Sericin Silk Cleanser is a cutting edge departure from traditional facial cleansers. Traditional cleansers depend on abrasive friction to remove dirt, dead cells and make-up. Ultimately the skin adapts, like a callus on the hands of a heavy laborer, by increasing dead cell production, worsening the appearance, increasing break-outs. 

Designed by a world expert in the field of facial beauty, Sericin Silk Cleanser utilizes an exclusive organic protein to gently lift dirt, grime and dead skin cells to the surface to be rinsed away. Skins natural pH balance remains intact, replenishing moisture only where it is needed. Naturally derived salicylic acid eliminates bacteria that cause blemishes while exfoliating skin in a non-abrasive manner. A centuries old Chinese method of cleansing oils removes make-up while retaining moisture balance. Skin is left clean, clear and refreshed.

How It Works

Piasecki MD Sericin Silk facial cleanser helps to keep skin clean and clear by removing impurities – dirt, sweat, air pollutants, cosmetics, and bacteria, while gently sloughing away dead skin cells. 

Sericin is a unique protein with antioxidant and anti-UV radiation benefits.  During cleansing a chemical process known as binding and micellation occurs.  Sericin binds to impurities and a specialized fatty-acid combination in the formula attaches to oil-based impurities.  Next an active alkaline ingredient allows dirt and oils to be rinsed off completely leaving the face clean, fresh, hydrated and pH balanced.

Oil based cleansing has been used in China for over 500 years.  It has been shown to remove dirt and grime and even make-up while maintaining moisture balance.

Salicylic Acid works by softening keratin, a fibrous protein that makes up the outer layer of the skin.  This softening process helps to exfoliate skin in a non-abrasive manner, creating a smoother and clearer complexion and allowing moisturizers to penetrate more effectively. 

Piasecki MD Sericin Silk Cleanser works to delicately remove what is not needed without over drying.  Skin needs its natural oils to stay hydrated and youthful.  Removing too much oil is counter-productive, as a dry, taut face will simply create more oil, resulting in clogged pores.  Gentle enough for those who are allergic or sensitive to soap-based products. 

How To Use

Apply cleanser onto the fingertips, add water and gently cleanse the face using circular motion. Rinse thoroughly with water. Use daily morning and night or as advised by your skincare professional.

Dr. Piasecki's Expert Tips

I designed this product to not only clean the skin in a new and innovative way, but also prep the skin for moisturizing products.  It’s a great stand alone cleanser, but will increase the benefits from my moisturizer products as well. 

Occasionally, sensitive skin can experience temporary dryness/redness in the first week of use.  If this occurs, for one week, reduce time on the face from 10 seconds to three seconds, and decrease frequency of use to only once daily.  Gradually build up to twice a day if skin permits.

Before & After
Before and after actual results, after two weeks of regular use.

    I loved how the cleanser helped my hormonal acne. My skin has never been so clear.

    • Carolyn, age 44

    I love this cleanser! I have been using a clarasonic system for two years and thought it would be difficult to go without it, but I didn’t miss it at all.

    • Evelyn, age 58

    Left my skin feeling very soft and young, not dry at all!

    • Gail

    I like the cleanser in that I like a facial cleanser that actually leaves my skin feeling clean--this does it. Many cleansers leave a residue which this is free of. I also received a sample of the night cream and that's great in that it makes my skin feel soft. Both very good products I will buy again.

    • Jessica
