You can't see it, but the things we love are often full of chemicals that don't love us back.

We're here to change that.

For us, the key to making the world healthier is Activated Silk™ technology: pure, natural silk protein in liquid form. Activated Silk replaces many of the hidden, harmful chemicals that are used to make everything from clothes to bed linens to furniture upholstery to personal care products. These are chemicals such as textile finishers, plasticizers (think BPA and phthalates), microplastics, stabilizers, and preservatives. The problem with many of these chemicals is that they can be harmful to human and environmental health. We partner with companies to swap out these chemicals with Activated Silk to make high-performance products that are healthier for people and the planet.

We think of Activated Silk as a “platform” because from one natural silk protein we can create hundreds of unique chemistries to impart different performance attributes whether in clothing, personal care or medical products. We hold several patents covering a wide variety of silk protein molecular compositions.  

We work with our partners to evolve their products—and their industries—for the better. All from the science of a simple silkworm cocoon.

Personal Care

*Activated Silk is a powerful personal-care product ingredient itself, but it’s also an ingredient stabilizer and delivery system. This means it can replace entire classes of harmful chemicals often used to make personal care products.

Two skincare lines, Silk Therapeutics and LabGrab, are licensing our technology to create effective and clean skincare. Now imagine those same benefits in a wide range of products that impact health, from deodorant and toothpaste to shampoo and baby lotions.

Medical

*Our company founders have nearly two decades of experience in groundbreaking silk research and in developing novel medical applications with natural silk. Our technology is being licensed by Silk Medical Aesthetics for dermal filler injectables. And we’re on our way to making the most biocompatible form of silk available for other medical applications.

BIOCOMPATIBLE

Natural silk has been treasured for millennia because of the way it works in natural harmony with the human body. Activated Silk works the same way because it’s pure, natural silk, meaning it won’t cause sensitivity, discomfort or harm to the skin or body. Plus, it’s non-GMO.

SUSTAINABLE

Silkworm cocoons are a naturally regenerating resource. We use only natural silk, water and salt to make our silk technology. Considering that more than 62 million tons of apparel is consumed annually*, just swapping out a portion of the chemicals used to treat clothing with Activated Silk can reduce the environmental burden on the planet’s waterways and build a more sustainable future for the apparel industry.
