Bolt Threads, the innovative biotech company behind synthetic spider silk and mushroom leather alternatives, is introducing 'Eighteen B' as a direct-to-consumer company that makes beauty products featuring lab-created silk protein.
So far, Eighteen B has introduced a fast-absorbing Revitalizing Hydrogel Moisturizer that is said to deliver an instant hydration boost and the Hydrate + Restore Rich Cream, both of which are powered by the "b-silk" protein. This innovative ingredient is touted for its ability to form a protective barrier and a provide long-term firming effect on the skin.
According to Bolt Threads' associate director of materials development, Lindsay Wray, "The structure of silk molecules have endless applications. If you scan through peer-reviewed journals, you’ll see scientists finding uses for it in almost every industry."
