Add a silky feeling to your soaps with our Tussah silk fibre. Simply dissolve a tiny amount (we use 1g per 2.5kg of fats/oils) in your caustic soda solution. Tussah is a humane silk, gathered after the moth has emerged from the cocoon.
This silk is easily disolved, cruelty-free and goes a long way. It creates a luxurious, rich texture when added to soaps, lotions and other skin care cosmetics, making it a wonderful cosmetic ingredient that adds an element of luxury to cosmetic products.
Uses for tussah silk include (but are not limited to):
- Face creams
- Body Washes
- Facial moisturisers
