LIFE CYCLE OF SILK WORM
Silk plus products for radiant skin
The new cosmetic formulations are unique and different from the original cosmetics due to theirs contain both the silk extract and freshwater algae extract which consist of high amounts of phenolic compounds and amino acids that play an important role as a skin moisturizer. Silk plus products have already tested in 30 woman volunteers. It was found that the skin hydration and whitening increased. Furthermore, no skin irritation occurred. Silk plus products possess the potential utility as a skin moisturizer and whitening product for face.
In silk weaving, there are two sets of silk threads. The threads set in a vertical position are called warp threads whereas those in a horizontal position are called weft threads.
The number of silk threads in the shuttle can be control
to determine the level of fabric thickness as the silk fabric
is called 1-ply, 2-ply and 4-ply silk.
