Our Superfine Silk Powder is a pure, silk protein powder that preserves the natural composition and physical structure of cocoon silk. The powder is extremely fine in texture and possesses a very smooth, silky feel.

Our Superfine Silk Powder is meticulously processed to preserve the natural amino acid and trace mineral composition and physical structure of cocoon silk. To produce the powder, milled, raw silk fiber undergoes alkaline hydrolysis, dealkylation and is then dried and carefully packaged.

Silkworm larvae produce cocoons that consist of a single strand of silk fiber. One single cocoon can produce a silk thread that reaches 1,000 feet in length.

Silk is the most durable natural fiber available. Mongols, for instance, wore garments made out of silk to prevent arrows from penetrating deeply into the flesh.

Although silk is most widely known for its traditional use in fine textiles, it has also been used nutritionally, medicinally and cosmetically since ancient times.

Silk fiber is an abundant natural source of a protein known as fibroin and has been used nutritionally for hundreds of years as a functional ingredient in pharmaceutical applications. More recently, silk fiber has been gaining popularity in cosmetic and personal care applications due to its fibroin content and valuable contribution towards nourishing the skin and hair. It is also admired for its ability to lend a smooth, silky feel to cosmetic formulations.
