The combination of glycine and alanine gives silk a remarkable effect on the skin.
Glycine is the simplest form of amino acid that the body is able to manufacture through the diet. This amino acid produces a protein that has a high concentration of collagen. Most of us have heard a lot about collagen and the wonders it can work on the skin. Glycine can help to repair skin damage and to speed up the wound healing process.
Alanine is another amino acid which your body is also able to manufacture and derive through dietary nutrients. Common in formulations, it is a great skin conditioning agent as well. Most masks contain alanine as a leave-on ingredient, as it can penetrate the epidermal cells. This helps to fill up lines and creases present, giving skin a smoother appearance.
