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 let you know your products are GREAT. I couldn't wait to get the order to give it all a try, and now I can't wait to place my second order to try other products that you offer. Your melt and pour soap melted so clear and the scents I ordered smelled fantastic. I have to tell you that you hit the nail on the head. The products are great, the shipping was quick, the site is easy to navigate, and the customer service girl I spoke with was polite. Keep up your fine work."
