Silk Peptide Powder contains alanine, glycine and serine. They have a high dispersion rate, allowing this fine powder to easily dissipate in liquids or into other powders. It is especially good for use in hair care products, as it protects hair from moisture loss and conditions it to provide a silky smoothness. Consider adding Silk Amino Acid to our ready-to-use cosmetic bases.
Silk Powder, Silk Peptide, Silk Amino Acids; which one is best for your formulation? All of them contain 18 different amino acids, all come from the cocoon of the silk worm, and all have a chemical composition that is very close to that of human skin and hair making them a wonderful source of nourishment and maintenance.
The real difference is the size of the particles, which impacts water solubility and how deeply each one can penetrate the hair and skin. The more deeply it penetrates, the greater the benefit but you’ll lose some of the much coveted look and feel it provides on the surface.
Silk Peptide Powder has the smallest particle size and can penetrate very deeply into the hair cortex to strengthen and repair. Even when employed in low concentrations, the use of Silk Amino Acid can have a noticeable effect on the appearance of hair. It also has the best water solubility and still retains the full complement of 18 amino acids. Its small size also means that it is absorbed deeply into the skin where its excellent moisture-binding properties compare favorably to conventional humectants such as glycerin. Because of its ability to penetrate so deeply, this version is the best choice for applications where a therapeutic value is of highest importance
