Silk Beauty Cocoons
The Secret Of Cocoon Silk
Many people already know that silk is smooth and gentle on human skin, but not many people are yet aware that the mother of silk, silkworm cocoon, is very effective for skin care.
The nature materials of the silk beauty cocoons promote metabolism, so as to give the skin gloss, nutriment, softness & elasticity.
Our Mulberry Silk Beauty Cocoons contain natural protein and Sericin - Sericin has a similar composition to our skin and is quickly absorbed to provide moisture. What's more, it also helps control the synthesis of melanin. In addition to the high antibacterial and antioxidant nature there's an extraordinary beauty effect, such as the conservation of the skin's moisture and warmth as it stimulates the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin
Major Cocoon proteins are fibroin and sericin Fibroin has received much attention for medical uses recently, Sericin surrounds the fibroin which later becomes silk. Sericin is mostly discarded during the degumming process of producing silk yarn, however it still remains on the surface of silk.
Recent studies have found that serine is an important moisturising element that is found in high concentrations in sericin, sericin is gentle on the skin.
