Givaudan Active Beauty launches Silk-iCare, a revolutionary vegan silk protein designed to protect and repair the skin

Derived from white biotechnology, Silk-iCareTM represents a breakthrough in biomimetic silk protein technology, offering unparalleled benefits for perfecting skin.

Using advanced biotechnologies, Givaudan Active Beauty has developed an optimised sequence of silk proteins, produced through fermentation, to create Silk-iCareTM – a pure biomimetic silk with remarkable film-forming properties.

Silk-iCareTM forms an invisible yet robust film on the skin, providing 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 unique 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-iCareTM is immediate, offering anti-pollution and skin recovery benefits. Thanks to its physical mode of action, Silk-iCareTM 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-iCareTM trigger a two-fold reduction in inflammatory breakouts, perfecting skin.

"We are delighted to introduce Silk-iCareTM, the pioneering vegan silk veil designed to protect and repair the skin", comments Romain Reynaud, Research and Development Director. "With its biomimetic structure, Silk-iCareTM emerges as a remarkable skin perfector, thanks to its exceptional film-forming properties. Acting like an invisible bandage, Silk-iCareTM delivers all-in-one anti-pollution, fast-repairing and make-up-fixing benefits”.
