SILK-ICARE™, the ultimate vegan biomimetic silk for skin perfection

Givaudan Active Beauty launches SILK-iCARE™, a revolutionary vegan silk protein designed to protect and repair the skin

Derived from white biotechnology, SILK-iCARE™ 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 through fermentation, to create SILK-iCARE™. This pure biomimetic silk provides remarkable film-forming properties.

SILK-iCARE™ forms an invisible yet robust film on the skin, giving immediate benefits in terms of protection and recovery. When applied, it creates a uniform 3D fibrillar network on the skin’s surface, ensuring performance, without leaving any residue or cracking as it dries.

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-iCARE™ is immediate, offering anti-pollution and skin recovery benefits. Thanks to its physical mode of action, SILK-iCARE™ forms a protective barrier that removes over 96% of pollution particles.

Clinical studies have demonstrated a significant seven-fold decrease in pore size, as little as 15 minutes after application. Over time, SILK-iCARE™’s skin-repairing properties trigger a two-fold reduction in inflammatory breakouts, perfecting skin.

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