Silk Amino Acids/Silk Peptide

Silk Amino acids also known as Hydrolyzed Silk Peptide.

Our Silk amino acids are carefully manufactured by hydrolysis of pure natural silk without harming the silk worm or moth.

Silk amino acids give the skin a very soft and velvety feel when used in a cosmetic product and have some excellent water binding properties. Silk amino acids (silk proteins) also have a certain amount of antioxidant action.

Because of the low molecular weight of the molecules, they penetrate the surface layers of the skin and are a naturally hydroscopic material, which has excellent moisture binding qualities to condition the skin.

Silk amino acids also called silk proteins are obtained by the hydrolysis of silk – a natural protein fiber. The soft lustrous thread obtained from the silk cocoon woven by the silkworm is so converted and used in cosmetic preparations.

Silk amino acids (silk peptides) are used to help prevent dehydration of the skin.
