This is the outer most layer of your skin that is made up of cells and lipids (aka fat), holds in moisture and acts as your protective shield from the world that sometimes isn’t so clean.
By now, you have heard us say B-SILK™ PROTEIN a lot. However, you may still be thinking…B-What??? So let’s dive in and get the nitty gritty of what makes this new-to-the-skincare-world ingredient so special and why it is important to skin barrier and skin health.
First, let’s talk about the barrier. This is the outer most layer of your skin that is made up of cells and lipids (aka fat), holds in moisture and acts as your protective shield from the world that sometimes isn’t so clean. The cells form a lattice-like formation to keep the good stuff in while keeping the bad stuff out. When your skin barrier is healthy, your complexion looks even, smooth, downright glowy! If your barrier is in distress, you will experience redness, breakouts, dryness….and accelerated aging (yikes)!

B-SILK™ PROTEIN creates that same lattice-like formation on your skin. Lindsay Wray, our Chief Scientific Officer, has over 10 years of studying spider silk and knowing that it has the same properties as the skin barrier, found a way to recreate it in a lab (so no spiders were harmed)! So, yes, it’s vegan silk. When B-SILK™ PROTEIN is added to our skincare formulations, your skin barrier first gets the added protection from pollutants and environmental aggressors that cause aging. Secondly, when paired with ceramides, peptides, and other skin-loving ingredients, B-SILK™ PROTEIN helps to keep them close to the skin so they can work harder to replenish your skin barrier and keep it in a healthy state.
Scientists to the core, we knew our B-SILK PROTEIN was a powerhouse …but, we had to test it because after all, we’re scientists and that’s what we do. Now we can say, B-SILK PROTEIN is clinically shown to give you firmer, smoother, healthier looking skin – with greater results over time.
What this data tells us is that B-SILK™ PROTEIN replenishes and protects the skin barrier, keeping it healthy to improve the skin and delay the aging process. Science for the win!
