The rise of the silkworm cocoon in skin care
The report (link above) confirms the rising popularity of silk cocoon in cosmetics. In recent years, there has been extensive testing of the silk cocoon-based ingredients in many skin and hair products, and encouraged by their beautifying effects, many companies have begun to include them in their formulations.
Silk amino acids, also known as silk protein, are the gelatinous proteins that bind the filaments in silk. The protein is water soluble. The amino acids have a low molecule weight that allows them to be easily absorbed through the skin. These have also anti-oxidant properties, thus helping reduce facial lines and wrinkles. Their versatility, moisture retention and softening abilities are being recognized by manufacturers of beauty products in a big way.
We at Herbally Radiant have already launched a full range of SILKY range of products, viz., Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer and Lotion (www.herballyradiant.com). These have proved to be highly beneficial to users and are priced reasonably well. These are natural products and do not contain any chemicals, synthetic additives, and with the combination of Essential Oils (Blend of Cedarwood, Frankincense, Ylang Ylang and Mandarin) these create rejuvenating effect on skin, besides building a protective layer against pollutants and microorganisms.
