Silk_Web_Icons_01_Cocoon_Updated

First, we get natural silkworm cocoons from trusted suppliers.

Raw silk starts in the form of a cocoon spun by a silkworm that has eaten organically grown mulberry leaves. These cocoons are made up of one very long strand of fiber consisting of two proteins.

First, there’s fibroin—pure silk protein (and the secret behind Activated Silk™ technology). Then there’s sericin, which acts as a “glue” that keeps the fiber together. Every cocoon consists of these two proteins and, because we don’t need the fiber strand to remain intact as the textile industry does, we can use cocoons that otherwise would have been discarded.

Next, we isolate the
pure silk protein.

Next, we isolate the pure silk protein.

We wash the cocoons in a simple bath of hot water and salt. This process allows us to remove the sticky outer sericin layer, leaving us with pure fibroin. After drying, the fibroin looks like a thin, white yarn—but its true power hasn’t been activated. Not yet.

Then, we turn the silk into liquid form.

Then, we turn the silk into liquid form.

We introduce salt and water again, this time to solubilize the fibroin—changing it from a fiber to a liquid. The salt is then removed through our proprietary purification process.

The end result? Pure silk protein in liquid, a platform chemistry with hundreds of possible molecular compositions. In its final state it’s simple, but the chemistry of Activated Silk™ technology is unmatched.

Now, the full potential of natural silk can be applied.

Next, it goes to our partners and their customers.

Our partners use Activated Silk™ technology to replace harsh chemicals in the products they sell to their customers. Because of the unique chemistry of Activated Silk, it can be customized to work in different ways a partner needs it to. And it always means that our partners can give their customers the same products they love—now healthier and better than ever.

Our partners use all-natural Activated Silk™ technology to replace harsh finishing chemicals used in the manufacturing process. Because of the unique chemistry of the Activated Silk platform, it can be customized to work in different ways a partner needs it to. And it always means they can give their customers the same products they love—now cleaner, healthier and better than ever.

By adapting the silk protein’s chemistry, ACTIVATED SILK™ technology becomes a platform for evolving entire industries.

By adapting the silk protein’s chemistry, Activated Silk™ becomes a platform, not a single solution.

Fabrics. Evolved By Nature™.

Activated Silk™ technology replaces the harsh finishing agents that you can’t see, but are often on common materials—from nylon to cotton to polyester. That means they can be produced more sustainably, used more responsibly and recycled more safely.

Even more amazing? Activated Silk performs just as well and in many cases better than the traditional chemicals.

Cleaner by nature.
Activated Silk is:

  • Biocompatible
  • Non-GMO
  • Non-toxic to you and the world (no BPA, phthalates, formaldehyde or other harmful ingredients commonly found in consumer goods)
  • Made from organically grown cocoons
  • Sustainably produced

Personal Care Products. Evolved By Nature™.

Activated Silk™ technology makes the products that are closest to our bodies better for our bodies. It’s already playing a key role as the active ingredient in skincare by making moisturizers and serums extra hydrating, brightening and firming while taking the place of the potentially toxic chemicals  commonly found in personal care products.

Products made with Activated Silk contain far fewer ingredients—dozens even—than comparable products because of the silk’s multi-tasking role. Activated Silk can all be safely washed down the drain without harming the environment.
