Sericin is a natural silk protein obtained from silkworm cocoons. Sericin has the capacity to bind to keratin, a protein found in the skin, and produces a protecting and moisturizing layer that makes the skin more firm and radiant. It has antioxidant, anti-aging, and moisturizing properties that help diminish the appearance of wrinkles. It inhibits the formation of excess melanin and protects against UV radiation therefore it whitens the skin. It is also used as an anti-pruritic and wound-healing agent.
