Our Silk Peptide Powder is a very fine, water soluble powder that consists of 18 silk amino acids. It possesses a minimum silk fibroin content of 90%. It is meticulously processed to preserve its natural composition. To produce the powder, milled, raw silk fiber undergoes alkaline hydrolysis, dealkylation and is then dried and carefully packaged.

Silkworm larvae produce cocoons that consist of a single strand of silk fiber. One single cocoon can produce a silk thread that reaches 1,000 feet in length.

Silk is the most durable natural fiber available. Mongols, for instance, wore garments made out of silk to prevent arrows from penetrating deeply into the flesh.

Although silk is most widely known for its traditional use in fine textiles, it has also been used nutritionally, medicinally and cosmetically since ancient times.

Silk fiber is an abundant natural source of a protein known as fibroin and has been used nutritionally for hundreds of years as a functional ingredient in pharmaceutical applications. More recently, silk fiber has been gaining popularity in cosmetic and personal care applications due to its fibroin content and valuable contribution towards nourishing the skin and hair. It is also admired for its ability to lend a smooth, silky feel to cosmetic formulations.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
