Aplicação De Nanopartículas De Sericina No Tratamento Cosmético De Cabelos
The sericin is a natural protein and hydrophilic gel produced by the silkworm Bombyx mori. The silk emitted by the silkworm has a center of fibroin that is surrounded by a gum coating of sericin, which allows all the fibers to stick together. The sericin has high affinity for keratin human hair and binds strongly to it, acting like a glue that cements damaged cuticles that are about to be torn during washing or combing. This study aims to assess the effects of the application of sericin nanoparticles in cosmetic treatment of damaged hair.
