One Protein. Endless Possibilities.

Our Story

Eighteen B harnesses the power of silk – one of the strongest materials in the natural world – to reinforce the natural skin barrier.
After studying silk proteins for a decade, Lindsay Wray, PhD, realized she could use silk to create more effective skincare products. Lindsay and her team engineered our proprietary b-silk™ protein to mimic the properties of spider silk.
B-silk™ protein is lustrous, strong, and biocompatible. It forms a lightweight, breathable barrier that supports the natural skin barrier for skin that looks healthy, glowing, and silky smooth.

Scientifically Designed Skincare

Healthy, glowing skin requires a healthy skin barrier.
An unhealthy skin barrier can lead to dryness, dullness, and irritation. And yet, the skin barrier is constantly at risk from environmental aggressors and harsh ingredients.
B-silk™ protein acts as both a carrier and a barrier. It carries nourishing, hydrating ingredients to the skin and acts as a lightweight barrier that keeps them close.
