What Makes Silk Crystal®️ Highly Prized?
Silk Crystal®️ makes achieving that elusive youthful lustre deceptively simple.
It is a result of years of painstaking research and patented technology that allows Fibroin to be extracted in its most complete form.
What makes Fibroin so important in silk skincare?
Fibroin is the key protein in silk that is highly prized, proven to give both transformative and restorative benefits to skin.
The problem? It is extremely difficult and costly to extract it whilst retaining its molecular structure and efficacy.
The key is ensuring that Fibroin is extracted in a manner that is gentle enough to retain its molecular structure – else, you are not getting its holistic benefits.
La Soie Gives You The Most Complete Form Of Fibroin
From The Outset,
We NEVER boil, or decompose with acid, alkali or enzyme, the silk fibres – while this method does indeed break down silk, the Fibroin resulting from such a harsh procedure effectively renders it no better than skincare created from other non-silk material.
We have invested intensively in Research and Development, and are able to utilise our proprietary technology to extract Fibroin from Silk.
How Does The Magic Happen?
Step 1: Obtaining Our Silk
The journey begins in a quaint little farm in South Korea. A family-run silk business oversees the intricate process of harvesting quality silk – from initial conceptualisation of the farm layout to provide optimal conditions for moths to mate, then nourishing the young caterpillar with mulberry leaves, to monitoring its moulting process, and finally expertly harvesting the cocoon of silk threads – and passes it on to a dedicated team of scientists in our biotech firm, FineCo Pte. Ltd..
Throughout its entire process, the business fundamentally adheres to its beliefs in sustainable and eco-friendly farming. They hold close to their heart that being at one with nature gives the utmost in harvest quality.
Step 2: Extracting Fibroin From Raw Silk
We first gently and expertly separate Fibroin from Silk. Arguably the most crucial step – if done harshly, the amino acids and peptides released are ineffective from skincare – this is done through an enzyme technology that re-arranges the three-dimensional structure of silk to extract Fibroin.
This technology creates a new microstructure of Fibroin, that is,Silk Crystal®️
