Innovative high-moisturizing silk

Have you heard about the silk component with moisturizing properties?

The silk that silkworms spin is 100% protein and it has a superior moisture-retaining function.

The surface of the silk contains the substance sericin which is a natural factor in moisture retention and it encloses fibroin which is the body of the silk yarn. This sericin contains amino acid proteins that are extremely close to those in human skin and is said to be a safe and secure natural moisture-retaining component.

And, our research into organic mulberry leaves grown in Yamaga City as feed shows that the sericin contained in Yamaga Silk created by silkworms carefully cultivated in our clean farming plant has even better moisture-retention properties; we can expect 10 – 30 times that of ordinary cultivated cocoons.

In addition, the amounts of histidine and urea, which are natural factors in moisture retention, have been detected in much higher frequency than that of other methods of cultivating silkworms and in cell testing, it has been proven that our silk actually has more moisture retention strength on the skin than other silks.

This is due to the effects of the artificial feed component created with Yamaga Silk’s own sericulture technology and it is a great advantage that other cocoons do not have.
