DermaSilk is a range of Class I Medical Devices with published evidence base in sensitive skin conditions such as eczema, lichen sclerosus, RVVC and VLSC. It is made from hypoallergenic silk which is permanently protected with an antimicrobial to keep the briefs fresh and reduce bacterial and fungal colonisation on the fabric. A simple change of underwear can help decrease the external sources of irritation, manage excessive moisture production and decrease candida proliferation.
DermaSilk briefs are included in the 2014 European Dermatology Forum Guidelines for LS and the 2016 European Guidelines for the Management of Vulval Conditions. Studies demonstrated a reduction in pain, burning and irritation over just a 4 week period, with the most dramatic reduction after the first week.

The results also showed:-
- 75% reported improvements in social/leisure activities
- 63% slept better at night
- 67% reported improvements in their sexual relationships
- 100% of patients noted that the briefs had helped their condition
