Silk Peptides are a highly purified grade of natural silk power, processed in such a way as to retain the original physical structure and chemical composition of silk. This is a 100% natural silk protein, in a fine powder form for ease of use. It also has the unusual quality of holding and releasing moisture depending on the temperature and humidity of the surroundings. This product is easy to use, as it bonds well with essential oils, fragrant oils, colors and base materials used in skin and hair care. It is also stable over a wide range of pH levels again confirming the suitability of Silk Peptide for personal treatment products. Recommended usage rate is between 2-5% by weight.

INCI: Hydrolyzed Silk

Silk Additives – Which one is the right one?

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 beneficial qualities but you’ll lose some of the much coveted look and feel it provides on the surface.

Silk Peptide is the next size down from the powder and has better water solubility. Being a more refined product, its particle size allows it to penetrate the skin and hair thereby giving it a more value-added aspect to go along with appearance enhancements. The shine, elasticity, and smooth feel it provides to hair become apparent after it dries and turns into a protective crystalline film that is less sticky than collagen or keratin. Upon penetrating the skin, Silk Peptide helps to retain moisture while providing an attractive sheen.

Application: Silk Peptide can be used in a wide variety of products such as shampoo, conditioner, hair treatment, body wash, body lotion, cleaner, toner, makeup foundation, lipstick, mascara, color cosmetics.

Smells quite fishy or something like that. But it doesn’t seem to come through in formulations. I’ve only used it a handful of times but I’m quite happy with it

Used in CP soap: Amazing ingredient in a Silk Soap (10g/lb oil). Does not discolor- add at trace. Becomes very airborne- make sure you have a face mask.

I was a little unsure about using this for the first time so split my batch of lotion and used the silk peptides in one half only. I then gave a sample of both to my testers and the results were almost unanimous. Almost all the testers preferred the lotion with the silk peptides. One tester wasn't sure if she noticed much difference between the samples. That particular tester is lucky enough to be young and have beautiful skin anyway lol. I will be buying this again and I will be trying the other silks too.

The smell is something awful but like the previous reviewer said it's easily masked with EOs and it yields amazing results.

I was kinda surprised of the smell of this product when I opened the bag. It's not horrible smelling, just odd. Anyway the smell does get covered up easily when adding FO's or EO's to your products and the benefits of it are great.

I've started using this in my daily face lotion and it does seem to have good moisturizing properties. I can apply in the morning and my dry skin stays soft all day.

Extreemly easy and versatile product to use. Give a smooth texture to lotions, leaving the skin soft. Also a must for haircare products, making hair stronger and softer without the use of nasty silicones.

An excellent product that gives a smooth texture to my product and also is very easy to dissolve. Very little is required to get results and I like that I'm using natural silk rather than an artificial ingredient to give my product a smooth texture.
