The incredible properties of silk protein make it effective for silk skincare as an ingredient for use in your best silk serum or skin moisturizer.
The amazing properties of spider silk inspired Eighteen B to create B-SILK™ PROTEIN for silk skincare, the protein that is a key ingredient for Eighteen B products. You may have heard that spider silk is five times stronger than steel, but the reasons for the strength of its strands were not well known in the past.
According to an article by ScienceMag.org, research has shown “that each strand—which is 1000 times thinner than a human hair—is actually made up of thousands of nano strands.”
Another article, by Wired, on the properties of silk notes that spider silk has been found to be not only strong but also “smart” because it is flexible and can “react differently to different stress levels…and sustain small damage without compromising the entire structure [of a web].”
In addition to being strong and flexible, silk protein is also biocompatible. For this reason, it has often been used to aid healing, such as for creating sutures. The incredible properties of silk protein make it effective for silk skincare as an ingredient for use in your best silk serum or skin moisturizer.
The protein helps to reinforce your skin and to keep it healthy and youthful by supporting its functions and in doing so helps to maintain collagen. Some of the benefits of silk skincare include improvements in skin elasticity and lifting, and enhanced texture and smoothness.
Check out the following article to learn about the B-SILK™ PROTEIN used in Eighteen B products. The protein is not only great for your skin but also clean, sustainable, and 100% cruelty-free.
You may be wondering whether silk skincare is right for you. The properties of silk protein for skin make it advantageous to use for people of all ages and skin types. Silk protein for skin is a part of a healthy skincare routine. This includes using silk skin face cream to minimize fine lines and silk eye cream to maintain the delicate skin around your eyes.
Silk proteins for skin have been found to:
● increase elasticity
● lessen the appearance of wrinkles
● help to maintain hydration
● help to alleviate pesky dry patches

The B-SILK™ PROTEIN in our skincare products is an effective silk protein for skin. It works by creating a light, breathable barrier on your skin that helps to defend it from stressors in the environment such as pollution. At the same time, this barrier also helps the skin to retain the ingredients that help it to stay strong and healthy and to maintain hydration. Your skin is left looking and feeling smooth and radiant.
