Conventional chemical companies have been creating chemicals based on coal tar for 200 years now. Today, there are thousands of them, hiding in plain sight. But who’s counting?
We are. And it’s time for conscientious chemistry to catch up.
There are currently
harmful chemicals derived from fossil fuels.
So far we’ve created
from molecules harvested from silk cocoons. With hundreds more on the horizon.
WHAT WE’RE DOING ABOUT IT
We believe in building a more bioharmonious* relationship between people, the things we love and the world we live in. And we’re doing it with Activated Silk™ technology, a revolutionary green chemistry platform made from silk cocoons.
*Bioharmony happens when environmental sustainability and biocompatibility come together. Our bodies and our planet are all the better for it.
We partner with companies to replace fossil fuel-based chemicals in their products with bioharmonious Activated Silk. The result? Better product performance. Fewer nasty chemicals. Healthier people and planet.
You can finish a handbag with polyurethane.
Or you can do it with Activated Silk.
Mulberry plants are grown naturally, irrigated only with rainwater.
Pesticide-free mulberry leaves are fed to growing silkworms.
Silkworms spin cocoons of natural silk fiber.
Silkworm pupae become a vital food source for various animals, including local fish.
Natural, non-GMO cocoons are shipped to Evolved by Nature in recyclable containers.
Cocoons are washed in a saltwater bath, leaving silk fibroin.
Silk fibroin is liquified in a simple salt solution, then filtered—leaving the silk protein and water that becomes Activated Silk.
Applied to leather to finish and enhance it.
Leather cut and sewn into a handbag.
Your relationship with the handbag begins.
WHO WE ARE
Making a molecule
We’re scientists. We’re farmers. We’re researchers and industry gurus. We’re people who believe if you can make things healthier and better, well, you should. With radically versatile silk molecules, we’re creating natural chemistry to replace petrochemicals and create brand-new performance benefits in textiles, beauty products and more. Much, much more.
