The Ancient Exfoliating Secret

The Ancient Exfoliating Secret

By: Hanna Heic | January 12, 2023

Here at EMRYS, we draw upon the ancient rituals of the Turkish hammam to deliver a beauty & relaxation treatment which stands the test of time. EMRYS Silk Exfoliating Gloves are handcrafted by the top textile engineers in Türkiye. Unlike any other exfoliators in the world, our gloves are handmade from silk and woven using a well-preserved traditional technique perfected over centuries.

Hammam rituals are the ancient cleansing method which include washing, deep cleansing, exfoliating and massaging. The rituals have a long, rich history — dating back to more than 2,000 years to the Roman empire. Today, hammams remain popular and relevant, and are seen as imperative method of purifying both the body and mind. Offering a tranquil escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life, a journey through a hammam sees visitors move between designated warm, hot and cold areas the idea is to perspire, exfoliate and cleanse before plunging into a reviving cold shower and enjoying a relaxing massage treatment.

This timeless tradition challenges the modern day concept of a rushed and mundane everyday skincare routine, as it highlights the need for an alternative ritualistic approach. It is a transformative experience of the mind and body that should be nurtured and respected within all bathrooms across the globe. Who would've thought that the most effective ancient beauty secret only requires water to work?

Now, rather than having to visit a traditional bath house in Türkiye, we have made it accessible for you to exfoliate in the comfort of your own home with the exact ancient tool: the Silk Exfoliating Glove.

Once the glove is submerged in water, the silk threads will swell up, hence forming a thightened grip that will then act as a friction to sweep off the layers of dead skin. The entire process is what enables the EMRYS Silk Exfoliating Glove to provide instant and effective results, including:

Smoothing dry skin

Fading scarring and pigmentation

Reduces the appearance of blackheads

Enhances skincare absorption

and it doesn't stop here 

Woven in Türkiye.

Handcrafted in Türkiye.
