Hydrolyzed Keratin


Available Options


Hydrolyzed Keratin is put through a hydrolysate process which makes the keratin stronger. Hydrolyzed Keratin also does not penetrate the hair shaft. It acts as a film-forming ingredient, creating a protective coating on the hair. This also helps to increase the shininess of the hair.

Sheep-wool-derived, hydrolyzed keratin protein is carefully monitored during its manufacture to ensure the lowest possible odor and low ash. Keratin is a highly specialized fibrous protein found in hair, feathers, wool, and nails. Keratin is distinct from other proteins in that it is rich in cysteine (a sulfur-containing amino acid) giving keratin a unique strength and protective quality.
