Description: Silk Amino Acids are a mixture of amino acids obtained from the cocoon of the Silk Worm (Bombix Mori). The mixture of amino acids is very high in the amino acids serine and aspartate, and some versions are rich in tyrosine as well. The amino acids themselves are the binding agent that is found within the filaments of silk. The most common way to collect both silk and this amino acid is through boiling. When the cocoon is boiled, the silk and amino acids separate, allowing for each to be collected. The amino acid itself can then be made into a powder or liquid form that is then added to many types of products you can buy in the store.
Usage: Silk Amino Acid can be used in a wide variety of products such as shampoo, conditioner, hair treatment, body wash, body lotion, cleanser, toner, makeup foundation, lipstick, mascara, color cosmetics.
