Silk Amino Acids
What are Silk amino acids Silk Essence?
TIZAN Silk amino acids Silk Essence (SAAs) also known as Sericin is a natural water-soluble glycoprotein extracted from raw silk, it also named Silk Essence. It is used as an additive in skin and hair care products due to its high levels of serine which has excellent moisture preservation characteristics. As a water-based additive it is used to provide a protective barrier and silky feel to lotions, soaps, personal lubricants, hair and skincare products. Silk amino acids are produced by hydrolyzing (or breaking apart) silk proteins into smaller peptide chains, typically 18 to 19 amino acids in length. Silk amino acids have a lower molecular weight than silk protein powders and are moisturizing to skin and hair.
Silk amino acids are used in formulating shampoos, conditioner, hair treatments, bodywash, body lotions, cleansers, toners and facial moisturizers, mascara, lipstick and color cosmetics.
Water-soluble mixed amino acids, also called Fibroin-90, whose average molecular weight is about 90, which is acquired after the hydrolysis of silk fibroin. White or creamy white powder, or faint yellow transparent liquid, the ninhydrin reaction is positive.
Natural Silk Culture and History
Silk is a natural protein fiber, some forms of which can be woven into textiles. The protein fiber of silk is composed mainly of fibroin and is produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons. The best-known silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori reared in captivity (sericulture). The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism-like structure of the silk fibre, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colors.
Natural Silk is the Oldest Pride of China
The earliest example of silk fabric has been found in a neolithic site in Henan, and is dating back 8,500 years. Silk fabric from 3630 BC was used as wrapping the body of a child from a Yangshao culture site in Qingtaicun at Xingyang, Henan.
Legend gives credit for developing silk to a Chinese empress, Leizu (Hsi-Ling-Shih, Lei-Tzu). Silks were originally reserved for the Emperors of China for their own use and gifts to others, but spread gradually through Chinese culture and trade both geographically and socially, and then to many regions of Asia. Because of its texture and lustre, silk rapidly became a popular luxury fabric in the many areas accessible to Chinese merchants. Silk was in great demand, and became a staple of pre-industrial international trade. In July 2007, archaeologists discovered intricately woven and dyed silk textiles in a tomb in Jiangxi province, dated to the Eastern Zhou Dynasty roughly 2,500 years ago. Although historians have suspected a long history of a formative textile industry in ancient China, this find of silk textiles employing “complicated techniques” of weaving and dyeing provides direct evidence for silks dating before the Mawangdui-discovery and other silks dating to the Han Dynasty (202 BC-220 AD).
UNESCO designated the Silk Road as a World Heritage Site, and with the development of trade on the Silk Road, most people know the natural silk come from China, fostered and enhanced in Europe and America. It is even regarded as valuable treasure by Japanese in modern times.
Silk as fiber nearest to human skin in the world
Silkworm is a kind of insect belonging to the order Lepidoptera. After peeling off their skin four times, the larva of silkworm would eject silk from mouth and fix it on the ground before put up the false work, which was used as the framework of cocoons, and the project of making cocoons need two to three days. Each mature silkworm has a pair of silk gland which consists of more than 900 gland cells.
At first, the silk protein which was secreted by the silk gland was liquid, and then hardens to silk fiber as soon as it exposes to air from the silk tube.
The silk fiber consist of inside and outside organizations–fibroin (about 75%）and sericin ( about 25%).
The fibroin itself still possesses 35% interval from the volume and the sericin outside also has the Amino Acids that is a hydrophil lateral chain, which make silk has a great function of absorption of moisture and still keep its comfort and coolness in spite of torridness.
Silk fiber can bear 35-44Kg/cm² pulling force in a unit of cross-sectional area and it can still restitute after elongating the 1/7 length of itself, which has excellent flexibility and is light, soft and fluffy.
Silk amino acids Silk Essence Benefits
Silk amino acids Silk Essence for skin
- It has the functions of natural moisturizing and skin nourishing
- Possessing the action of inhibiting melanin production,
- Promoting the regeneration of skin tissue, guard against chapping and chemical damage
- Inhibiting the skin cancer
- Silk protein also possesses the function of antioxidant
- Silk protein also possesses the function of antioxidant
Silk amino acids Silk Essence for hair
Silk amino acids Silk Essence has hair-caring function depends on the absorbency, absorptivity, film-forming ability and moisturizing type it received by hair. Compared with other protolysates (collagen, bone collagen, glutin and so on), the biggest feature of fibroin is that it is easy to be absorbed by the hair.
Silk amino acids Silk Essence for vegan
Silk protein contains 18 types of amino acid, over 90 percent of which can be absorbed by human body. Its percentage of amino acids which are necessary to human body reaches more than 17 percent, higher than normal food. Therefore, it is a very good way of amino acid supplements to add the fibroin into the food. Japan began the research of turning silk into food as early as 1983. Like silk cake, biscuits, noodles, soba noodles, jelly glues, ice cream, candies, porridge, drink, soy and other kinds which contain components of silk, such as mushroom, tea, capsule, tablets and so on, they have appeared in the market, and are very popular among customers, which become the new generation of healthy food and nourishment in Japan.

Silk Amino Acids Main Functions
- Mixed amino acids, a kind of highly practical nutrient substance with higher nutritive value, is produced through biochemistry technology which adopts the raw material of mulberry silk in which alanine, serine and glycine account for more than 83%.
- Glycine and Serine of silk essence are raw materials to synthesize protein in organisms, and are also precursors for synthesis of glutathione, which has a preventive effect on cardiovascular diseases, cancer and aging; Glycine also has an antidotal action on the detoxication of aromatic compounds which can cause cancer; alanine promotes the alcohol metabolism, protects the liver and prevents people from being drunk; tyrosine has a good effect on preventing senile dementia.
- Silk Amino Acids Silk Essence can easily impenetrate into the dermis layer of skin, be quickly absorbed by the skin, and takes part in enzyme activities, which obtains the actions of humidity, moisturizing, UV radiation, inhibiting melanin production, preventing skin aging and nourishing the skin.
