So, what is hydrolyzed silk?

Hydrolyzed silk is a natural protein derived from silk fibers that have been broken down into smaller fragments through a process called hydrolysis. This process makes the protein more easily absorbed and utilized by the skin and hair. Hydrolyzed silk is often used in cosmetics and personal care products for its moisturizing, smoothing, and protective properties. It can help to improve the texture and appearance of skin and hair, while also providing a protective barrier against environmental stressors. As a food ingredient, hydrolyzed silk may be used to enhance the nutritional value of certain products, or to add a unique texture or flavor profile.
