Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein
CAS No. 91745-12-9

Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein is a water-soluble, cosmetic grade vegetable protein extract made from the large seeds of the Adansonia Digitata fruit. The seeds are obtained via ethical and sustainable methods which support local communities in Africa.

The Boabab is an iconic African tree called the "tree of life" due to its ability to store large amounts of water and withstand the harsh climate. Individual trees can live more than 2,000 years. Ancient folklore suggests that water infused with baobab seeds gives strength, good health, and good fortune.

For the hair, Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein provides an anti-aging treatment including damage recovery, protection from damage, nourishment, and strength and conditioning effects. Hair becomes damaged through UV-exposure, heat, pollution, and stress. Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein has been tested on African, Brazilian, and Caucasian hair, and has been shown to have positive results in all 3 hair types.

For skin treatment, Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein defends skin against UV stress by limiting cellular photo-aging. It restores skin vitality by reducing DNA damage following UV exposure. It maintains healthy, supple skin with nourishing amino acids.

Benefits:

  • Anti-aging solution for hair  and skin care
  • Superior hair and skin damage recovery
  • Intense protection from UV-stress and heat
  • Deeply nourishes hair for greater manageability
  • Instantly conditions for a softer, smoother feel
  • Gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO

In vitro tests:

In laboratory tests, African and Brazilian hair was relaxed using a lye relaxer. In the African hair, reatment with Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein showed a 5% increase in elasticity and a 29% increase in strength compared to placebo. In Brazilian hair, Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein showed a 12% increase in hair strength compared to placebo. In Caucasian hair that was bleached and colored, Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein aided in damage recovery with 10% improvement in elasticity and 14% increase in strength compared to baseline.

DNA microarray data shows that Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein up-regulates expression of genes involved in DNA repair, including the p53 and histone H2AX. The treatment significantly reduced p53 levels compared to untreated, UV damaged cells.

Our Customers Say...
I have to admit, the products are well packaged, but the adorableness of the little containers makes me go, "awwww," when I start to formulate.

All cute aside, I love LotionCrafter. I can get products here I have a hard time sourcing at rates I'm willing to pay. I don't want to buy huge amounts of anything when I'm making initial formulations. I want to use small amounts to decide if something should be in my line. I can go small, or huge and that makes me feel confident that I can source what I need in amounts I can purchase.

I can get silicones here I can't find anywhere else and I've made my own primer that's head and shoulders above anything else I've ever purchased for any amount of money.

I am in love and I have large orders planned over the next few months. Thank you.
