Hydrolyzed Silk Protein-Liquid is made by isolating silk thread from the cocoon and cleansing and degumming the fibers. The individual silk fiber is then wound with other silk fibers to create one long thread. The threads are then combed to remove noils which are then used in the production of hydrolyzed silk proteins through controlled hydrolysis. It is a Natural protein obtained from natural silk noils (fibers, fibroin) from the cocoon of the silk worm (bombyx mori). Has excellent moisture binding properties and silky smooth feel. The exceptional purity of silk is shown by the clarity of its film and low ash content. Protein content about 10%. Gluten-free.
Acts as a conditioning agent, film former and moisturiser. Imparts very good moisturising benefits in skin care. Increases the plasticity of the hair helping prevent breakage and split ends.
