Nature starts the process of our skincare, and it all starts with pure, natural silk.
Activated Silk is pure silk protein from real silk cocoons and water. It’s beautifully simple, yet incredibly effective. And it can only be found in our skincare.
After feeding on mulberry leaves, silkworms spin silk cocoons from a single strand of raw silk fiber. This extremely long, durable fiber is made up of two proteins:
Fibroin: naturally biocompatible silk protein (and the secret behind Activated Silk!)
Sericin: a sticky, glue-like protein that keeps the fiber together
We only use the good-for-skin fibroin to make Activated Silk, and not sericin, which can be allergenic to the skin. And because we don’t need intact silk fibers, we’re able to ethically source our silk from trusted suppliers, using cocoons that other industries have discarded due to external imperfections.
