A silk protein bioactive with a strong affinity to keratin

Skin Bioactives


SERICIN is a natural silk bioactive extract produced by the silk worm Bombyx mori. The unique silk protein SERICIN has strong affinity to keratin. It forms a highly substantive, protective anti-wrinkle film on the skin surface, imparting an immediate, long-lasting, smooth, silky feeling that even persists after a showering. Skin water loss and irritation are reduced. SERICIN is a yellowish-brown aqueous solution.
