B-silk™ protein is made through fermentation, using simple, clean, and renewable resources like sugar, water, yeast, and salt. We actively seek to limit and eliminate any petroleum inputs from our process.
We make no compromises when it comes to what we can and cannot put in our formulations. Many skincare ingredients are controversial due to an insufficient amount of information being available. As a company, we are committed to conducting thorough research, performing our own tests and taking a realistic, evidence-based approach to our formulations, so you know Eighteen B is effective and safe.
We support our knowledge by consulting peer-reviewed studies, established ingredient databases (like the EWG Database), and other leading industry lists (Sephora and Whole Foods), to evaluate ingredient risk profiles and eliminate controversial ingredients.
