SILK CRYSTAL is a new innovative biomaterial that is a fibroin protein based gel. SILK CRYSTAL has many unique characteristics that can emulsify water and oil without chemical surfactant, regulates oil balance, gives high water holding capability of more than 50 times its own weight, and has excellent moisturizing effect. In addition, it has excellent UV protecting ability and is effective to protect skin from harmful environmental factors.
Usual silk materials used widely in skin care & hair care are broken silk that does not keep many of silk properties. By a unique enzyme treatment we assemble the Fibroin to form the SILK CRYSTAL®. This process allows retaining the structure and the benefits of the silk. It is now exported to cosmetic companies in Europe such as Germany, France and Switzerland.
* Absorbs and emulsifies both water and oil without surfactant
* Strong moisture retention (strongly bonded to water molecules more than 50 times its own weight)
* Superior UV protection
* Good Oil-Water balance, pH adjustment
* Soothing and cooling action
* Anti-inflammatory effect
* Promote skin cell regeneration
* Antioxidant and antibacterial effect
In ancient times, alchemists developed a powerful colloidal elixir known as "liquid gold" which reportedly had the ability to restore youth. In many recent scientific studies colloidal gold is known to be helpful in immunoregulatory activity, inhibition of infections, stabilization of collagen, improving blood circulation, as well as promoting renewed vitality.
FINECO developed a unique SILK CRYSTAL®-GOLD COMPLEX by conjugating colloidal gold particles with silk protein which is highly compatible with skin cells and provides several benefits of both silk and gold.
Our research indicates that SILK CRYSTAL®-GOLD COMPLEX reduces the level of free radicals causing cell damage resulting in aging skin, and has UV protection effects so it can be used to improve a number of different skin problems. SILK CRYSTAL®-GOLD COMPLEX has a unique reddish-purple color that is from colloidal gold particle, so it is unchangeable natural colorant.
SILK CRYSTAL® -HA COMPLEX is a bioconjugated Silk fibroin protein-polysaccharides complex gel in which the micro-porous network structure of SILK CRYSTAL® is conjugated with SODIUM HYALURONATE.
FINECO's innovative SILK CRYSTAL® has various mysterious characteristics such as modulating moisture, blocking UV rays, providing anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agents, promoting collagen formation, accelerating cell regeneration as well as enzyme stabilizing capability. As GLYCOSAMINOGLYCAN, HYALURONIC ACID (HA) is a cornerstone of the extracellular matrix, it allows the anchorage of the cells and it structures the dermis components.
By combining with SODIUM HYALURONATE which is a strong natural hydrating agent, SILK CRYSTAL® - HA COMPLEX provides beneficial synergistic effects of both SILK CRYSTAL® and SODIUM HYALURONATE .
Fine Mushroom HA™(Vegaluron) is a strong moisturizing bioactive components made by applying FINECO’s unique technology to the Tremella fuciformis mushroom, which contains mostly water soluble heteropolysaccharides consisted of a (1→3)-α-mannan backbone with xylose- and glucuronic acid-containing side chains.
Fine Mushroom HA™ is a mushroom-derived Hyaluronic acid, because it contains lots of glucuronic acid (about 18%) as hyaluronic acid does. Fine Mushroom HA™ has higher water holding capability than sodium hyaluronate, and gives excellent moisturizing effect to the skin with soft and better touch feeling than sodium hyaluronate.
Fine Mushroom HA™ is a good biomaterial as a plant-derived strong moisturizer for skin care products with good stability and safety profile.
