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.

Our scientists pioneered a new method to isolate the good-for-skin silk protein.

By washing our cocoons in a simple bath of hot water and salt, we’re able to remove the sticky layer of sericin. This leaves us with just the core silk protein, fibroin. Once dry, this pure protein resembles a thin white yarn, with its full transformative power yet to be activated.

We convert the silk protein into a liquid, unlocking its full transformative power.

Salt and water are reintroduced; this time to convert the silk fiber to liquid form. We then remove this salt through our purification process.

The result? Biocompatible Activated Silk protein, ready to be used in our powerfully clean skincare formulations.

Why Activated Silk?

Teams with your skin’s collagen for a visibly smoother and firmer appearance

Replaces entire classes of chemicals commonly found in skincare products

Enables us to create potent formulas with just 12 ingredients or fewer
