Product Line

AMSilk is the world´s first industrial supplier of synthetic silk biopolymers manufactured by a patented biotechnological process. Silkbeads and Silkgel are two innovative, vegan products for personal care applications, inspired by natural silk proteins. The functional silk proteins display a broad range of uses such as breathable skin protection and fixation of substances. Silkgel forms a protective breathable film on the skin, which shields from environmental influences, small molecules and bacteria.

Silkgel supports the interplay of active ingredients forming a persistent „performance-complex“. Silkbeads provide an optical correction of wrinkles, known as soft-focus effect, and can be perfectly used in anti-aging products or makeup. Balancing properties harmonize young skin.
