INCI: Aqua, sr-Spider Polypeptide-1
Silk-Gel is a hydrogel containing functional, non-hydrolyzed silk polypeptides and water. It is miscible with water as well as oil based formulations and spreads easily. Due to its shear-thinning properties, even Silk-Gel with high viscosity/consistency is sprayable and dispensable. When applied on skin, Silk-Gel generates a thin and transparent film. The silk proteins form a network of stable, three dimensional structures with small pores for air and water vapor exchange. Although in principle any kind of surface can be coated with Silk-Gel, it is especially suited for human skin.
Silk-Gel forms the protective and breathable film on the skin without the use of conventional chemicals or glues such as acrylates. The exclusively physical barrier becomes immediately functional after application. It supports the skin in its regeneration process. The silk film is long lasting, robust, not sticky and smooth to the touch. An enforced and even stronger barrier function is conceivable when using barrier supporting products containing parts of hydrolipidic layer accompanied with Silk-Gel.
