VegeKeratinTM
CAS No.: Mixture

VegeKeratinTM is a vegetable alternative to animal keratin. It increases hair strength, enhances elasticity, helps protect hair from harsh salon processes, makes hair look more healthy and shiny, and improves the comb-ability of hair.

Keratin is a protein composed of 18 amino acids. It is one of the primary structural components of hair, nails, and the epidermis. Keratin keeps hair healthy and lessens damage. VegeKeratinTM is an alternative to animal-based keratin. It contains wheat and soy amino acids, carefully blended to mimic the functional ratios in human hair amino acids.

VegeKeratinTM is 10.51% Arginine, which is the most nitrogen-rich amino acid, and which helps reinforce and strengthen hair fibers.

Benefits:

  • Increases hair strength
  • Enhances elasticity
  • Protects hair from harsh salon processes
  • Makes hair look more shiny & healthy
  • Improves combability of hair (wet and dry combing)
  • Reduces static and frizz, making hair easier to style
  • Vegan, non-GMO, natural, and sustainable
  • Paraben-free and formaldehyde-free
  • Less odor than animal-derived keratin

Applications:

  • Shampoos, conditioners
  • Leave-on hair treatments
  • Hair styling products

In vitro tests:

In laboratory tests,VegeKeratinTM showed better than 18% improvement in elasticity for damaged (triple bleached) Caucasian hair. VegeKeratinTM was shown to provide similar strength increases as hydrolyzed animal keratin. In damaged African hair, VegeKeratinTM showed a 16% increase in elasticity and a 3.9% increase in strength compared to control.

Laboratory tests also showed that VegeKeratinTM delivers similar levels of antioxidant protection as hydrolyzed animal keratin.

Our Customers Say...
Thank you Jen for a quickly processed, thoughtfully packaged order.
I am having a ball formulating. I love the wide range of products and great information on your site.
Thank you for the extra goodies you tucked in. Now I know what I was missing and plan to add a few more tools!
Gail

I love Lotioncrafter products. I just ordered the Shea Nilotica Butter for the first time and it is smooth, creamy and amazing. Great for my products! Delivery was quick and I received some extras. I will be ordering more soon. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
Sandy Bouie, (The Honey Pot)

I find Lotioncrafter to be a company that is both very efficient but also very accommodating. What an incredible group of people! It is rare that I see such excellent customer service these days.
Lee Ann

This is a company that takes its business seriously. I had a question about a raw material that I was unfamiliar with and Jen addressed the issue with courtesy, efficiency, and expertise. I have been impressed enough to confidently buy any product offered knowing that they have already addressed any issues a consumer might have. Lotioncrafter is to be the first site I search for desired materials. Thank you, Jen.
Laura F.

I've been swinging my hair all day thanks to the silk amino acid product! This isn't the first time I've had amazing results using it, but I don't always get super shiny and flexible hair immediately after a henna treatment. My hair is shoulder length and relaxed. but I'll be able to postpone my next chemical treatment thanks to the SAA. I'll be ordering the largest size since the shelf life is a year. I'll probably try the argan oil too thanks to someone's review. :-)
