Silk Amino Acids PF
CAS No. 96690-41-4, 7732-18-5 (water)

Hydrolyzed from pure silk fibers, silk amino acids have a lower molecular weight than hydrolyzed silk protein powders as they undergo a greater degree of hydrolysis. Due to their smaller molecular weight they are more penetrating and moisturizing to skin and hair.

Silk is taken from the cocoon of the silkworm moth (Bombyx mori). After the silk thread is isolated from the vacant cocoon, the fibers are cleaned and degummed. The individual silk fiber, too fine to handle individually, is then wound with other fibers onto a reel creating one long, strong thread. The threads are then combed to remove the noils. Noils, by-products of the textile industry, are short fibers combed from the long fibers during the preparation of the silk thread. These noils are used in the production of silk proteins. Our Silk Amino Acids are manufactured from the silk noils by hydrolyzing them down to the free amino acids under carefully controlled conditions.

Our Silk Amino Acids PF have a high concentration of amino acids, providing greater benefits than ever before! The principal amino acids in Silk Amino Acids  are glycine, alanine, and serine. The bulk of the other major amino acid, tyrosine, has been removed due to its lack of solubility.

Highly substantive to skin and hair, Silk Amino Acids PF are highly hygroscopic and have excellent moisture binding ability. Free amino acids are known to penetrate into the upper layers of the skin as well as through the hair cuticle into the hair shaft. This draws moisture into these areas, improving skin and hair hydration. For hair, this results in increased flexibility and manageability, leaving a soft, natural look. Meanwhile, moist, hydrated skin is more supple and has a smoother appearance.

Applications:

  • Shampoos, conditioners, hair treatments
  • Body wash, cleansers
  • Body creams, lotions, and gels
  • Facial toners and moisturizers
  • Mascara, lipstick and color cosmetics
  • Nutritive products for brow and lash

Our Customers Say...
I am impressed. I placed an order on Monday morning, by that afternoon I already had a UPS confirmation for pick up in my emailbox! Lotioncrafter not only offers the most amazing ingredients that makes any formulator's mouth water but it has fast shipping to boot. I am glad I discovered this company.

You guys are simply awesome! You should be so prideful in your business because the superior service you all provide keeps many of us DIYers, business owners and hobbyist so happy. Thank you.
Dee

WOW! How fun to make my own Quality skin care products. I'm financially challenged and I love that I can make a product that sells for $100 for a fraction of that! If you can follow a recipe, than you can follow these instructions.I recommend ordering the scale and paddle mixer, too. They're a time saver. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
Deneen

My biggest dilemma is that I live in Hawaii and finding reputable and affordable suppliers is near impossible, and once you locate one the shipping is out of this world ($50+ for shipping alone normally); when I found your website I was hopeful. Not only did you have the refined Shea Butter I was looking for, but you had everything else too! And the shipping was VERY affordable. I received my order 1 day sooner than I expected it (and shipping to Hawaii normally takes longer than shipping 'locally' within the continental US). I couldn't be more pleased with everything that you have to offer. I will definitely be ordering again, you have a customer for life!

Today is my 5th order from LotionCrafter. I really like their product. One product I ordered, the next time I purchased it from Whole Foods and I notice the difference in the quality of the product. I once placed an order and decided to change it about 2 hours later. It was to late. The order had already processed. They sell good quality products and shipment is fast. I usually don't like to pay shipping but for LotionCrafter I do because I do like their product and prices. Keep up the good work.
