Ever since silk has been synonymously used with luxury and beauty. It is the most treasured raw fibre that is known for its natural sheen, pleasant touch, superior brilliance and unique characteristics. Silk is already known for its traditional use in fine textiles. Contemporary research brought forward that silk also consists of the unique protein SERICIN, which carries extraordinary properties enhancing skin health and repair. Most knowledgeable are moisturizing-, antioxidant-, anti-aging and wound-healing-effects, as well as antibacterial activity, to name a few among many others.
Scientifically, SERICIN is a macromolecule of hydrophilic character and composed of 18 amino acids with strong polar groups such as hydroxyl, carboxyl, and amino groups. Its organic composition is given by 46.5% carbon, 31% oxygen, 16.5% nitrogen, and 6% hydrogen. Structure and content of amino acids are closely similar to the skin of the human body, and thus highly compatible and absorptive. Its biochemical characteristics give SERICIN the important and beneficial biological properties!
