Givaudan reveals film-forming vegan silk protein

Givaudan Active Beauty has launched Silk-iCare, a biomimetic vegan silk protein with film-forming properties designed to protect and repair the skin.

Produced through fermentation, Silk-iCare is said to form an invisible yet robust film on the skin and provide immediate benefits in terms of protection and recovery.

Upon application, it creates a uniform 3D fibrillar network on the skin's surface, ensuring performance, with no residue or cracking on drying.

Its hydrogel structure, derived from natural silk, offers a thixotropic characteristic, resulting in a smoother application and a breathable, non-sticky finish.

The efficacy of Silk-iCare is immediate, offering anti-pollution and skin recovery benefits.

Thanks to its physical mode of action, Silk-iCare forms a protective barrier that removes over 96% of pollution particles.

Clinical studies have demonstrated a significant seven-fold reduction in pore size, as little as 15 minutes after application.

Over time, the skin-repairing properties of Silk-iCare trigger a two-fold reduction in inflammatory breakouts, perfecting skin.

“We are delighted to introduce Silk-iCare, the pioneering vegan silk veil designed to protect and repair the skin,” said R&D director Romain Reynaud.

“With its biomimetic structure, Silk-iCare emerges as a remarkable skin perfector, thanks to its exceptional film-forming properties. Acting like an invisible bandage, Silk-iCare delivers all-in-one anti-pollution, fast-repairing and make-up-fixing benefits,” he added.
