Silk Amino Acids
CAS No. 96690-41-4, 7732-19-5 (water)

New and Improved! With a higher concentration of amino acids!

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 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 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...
Products are amazing and the shipping is lightning speed. It almost seems like the day that I place an order, I get a confirmation that it has shipped. Thanks for great service and products.

I ordered some of the Shea Nilotica from LC and it's been sitting in my supply area for a few weeks because my household has been so busy. I am just now getting around to trying it for the 1st time and let me just say...WOW!! I am head over heels in LOOOVE with the Shea Nilotica. I've used other re-fined and unrefined she butters but this is by far superior. I can't believe how creamy it is and how satiny my skin feels. Right after I used a little I slathered some on my 3 yr old! Oh how happy I am that I ordered the 5 pound bag rather than just a sample size after I called Jen to inquire about it. LC rocks!
Kara Knox

I purchase a 5LBS bucket of Shea Nilotica from Lotion Crafter (my first time ever purchasing off this site). The creamy, buttery, light yellow color of it is amazing!!!! It is super soft, light scented, and looks like vanilla ice cream. I am VERY happy with my purchase,and will certainly purchase again. I use by itself on my skin and mix in my whipped body butters. It isn't grainy at all. 5 STARS!!
Charmaine Pitt, (SuriiShae Naturals)

Amazing! I ordered my items a week ago and got the items delivered to the UK on time. I wish your website stock a wide range of facial peels. I am a customer for life because you make shopping online so easy. Keep up the good work. I love your ultra fine L-ascorbic acid and use it every day in my creams.
