THE SECRET OF SILK
One day, resting under the shade of the white mulberry tree, China’s “Yellow Empress” was transfixed by a cocoon that fell into her teacup and began to unravel. The Empress located the source of the cocoon – the mulberry silk moth – and began cultivating silkworms. According to legend, she invented the reel and loom to weave the threads into vibrant fabric. This 5000-year-old story tells of the discovery of silk and the beginning of sericulture.
For 5000 years, silk fibers have been woven to create the most sought after and beautiful fabrics. Silk was once a closely guarded secret. Today, it is cultivated and woven around the world. Yet the silkworm continues to amaze us.
Science has identified a remarkable protein in the sheath protecting the fiber: sericin.
Sericin has demonstrated exceptional properties that few natural ingredients can offer, with proven therapeutic and cosmetic use. It remains somewhat of a secret, guarded by a small number of laboratories and brands.
In the past, supply, quality, and costs constraints have limited sericin's use. But that is about to change.
OUR VISION IS TO BECOME THE UNMATCHED
MARKET LEADER IN SILK PROTEINS BY RECYCLING WASTE AND OFFERING AMAZING PRODUCTS THAT MAKE AN IMPACT
We are here to operate an efficient, sustainable and ethical industrial process from farmer to consumer, processing unexploited waste and releasing the power of silk.
SeriTech is the result of our founder’s willingness to embrace the natural qualities found in silk production. Enhancing a long family heritage in the silk industry, we have developed a process to make this amazing protein available to, not only brands who look to offer rejuvenating and regenerating cosmetic products, but also to companies serious about leveraging the core properties of sericin for multi-domain applications.
