Keratin protein is generally an animal derived additive but our vegan friendly keratin is a unique, plant based replica that is just as effective in formulations. It is a water soluble additive that provides your finished formulation with a blend of 20 amino acids which will enhance moisturization and conditioning properties in both skin and hair care. It has the ability to strengthen and enhance the elasticity of individual hair strands, and reduces the "fly away" hair syndrome. As an additional benefit, keratin protein holds antioxidant benefits that have been noticeable even at low doses such as 0.1%.
This raw ingredient can be added directly into your water phase at a ratio of 0.1 to 5%. We've tested it in lotions, shampoos, conditioners, we simply love it!
