Silk Amino Acid is a unique silk peptide and one of the best at reducing fine lines and other signs of aging. Aside from the amazing texture of silk extracts, silk amino acids contain properties which allow it to rejuvenate skin tone, reduce wrinkles and hydrate your skin tissues to protect from free radicals.
All these benefits come from the unique properties of the amino acid due to their special water binding characteristics. In fact, silk amino acid (also known as Sericin) is only found in the best skincare formulas and for good reason.
They are basically natural water soluble glycoproteins which are extracted via raw silk. They contain relatively large quantities of Serine which possesses superb moisture preserving properties. Serine along with other important properties form a protective barrier on the skin and provide their characteristic silk-like texture.
Silk amino acids are produced by chemically tearing apart silk proteins into smaller and smaller peptide chains. This means these amino acids have lower molecular weight than the silk proteins they are made from. In turn, this produces their excellent moisturizing properties particularly for skin and hair.
The primary reason why silk amino acids are great for anti-aging skincare is the large amounts of hydroxyl amino they contain which are known for their important role in regulating moisture content of the skin and water binding process. Silk amino acids have very powerful properties for preventing wrinkles and fine lines because they are light and easily penetrate the skin layer thanks to their affinity for bonding with adhering-proteins.
Clinical studies show silk peptides have many anti-oxidant properties that help to prevent wrinkling. Finally, because of their high molecular weight, silk peptides leave behind semi-occlusive films that remain on the surface to protect the skin. This has the added benefit of increasing skin permeability which further increases the skin’s resistance to damage and fine lines.
Visio Elan’s Aria Regenerating Peptide Cream combines silk amino acids, NutraPeptides-R (hydrolyzed rice protein) plus Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, Vitamins C, E and botanicals in an advanced skincare system.
This effective silk amino acid peptide cream protects your skin from wrinkles and visible signs of aging. When combined with Aria’s Triple Peptide Serum, one of the best anti-aging serums on the market, this two-step system becomes an anti-aging duo.
