Skin Care developed using real spider silk
A new range of all-natural skincare featuring Spider Silk Protein has been developed.
Genetica Skin Care has been created by Spidey Tek, a leading authority on spider silk and its applications for use.
After 30 years of research into commercial applications for the protein and fibres created by real spiders in their spider silk, Spidey Tek has formulated Genetica Skin Care with a line of 25 products.
Products are grouped to address different skin care concerns including skin conditioning, deep cleansing, and wrinkle reduction.
Roberto Velozzi, CEO of Spidey Tek, says:
“It is amazing how the spider silk proteins fill in many of the little imperfections in the skin to give a super smooth look and feel wherever it is applied.
“Due to the fact that the spider silk proteins retain 40% more moisture than other materials, the skin is always hydrated, which gives it a glow and youthful appearance.”
Dr. Randy Lewis, Spidey Tek's Chief Science Officer, adds:
“Our process produces spider silk proteins as nanoparticles. These nanoparticles are natural, biodegradable and vegan. Thus, unlike current nano- and micro-particles used in cosmetics, these are safe for the environment. Due to their incredibly small size, these particles are able to penetrate pores, skin lines and cracks much better than other face creams. When used in face cleansers, they can penetrate to remove dirt and other impurities on the skin.”
Because they're made from all-natural, bio-degradable spider silk, Genetica's nano-spheres are not only more efficient than plastic, abrasive spheres, they are also much better for the environment.
“As a company, Spidey Tek is very aware of protecting the environment in every possible way, and Genetica Skin Care achieves that goal on all counts,” comments Roberto Velozzi.
Genetica Skin Care will either be distributed as a stand-alone brand or via White Label.
