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.

I absolutely LOVE the customer service and QUICK turnaround this company provides. The products are top-notch, and the prices are excellent. I can't say enough good things about Lotioncrafter!
Robyn Gerard

I turned a bright shade of chartreuse, not merely light pink when I received what I ordered. The gifts I received, to make my concocting more pleasurable, were quite a surprise & a delight. I have NEVER received anything free from ANY other skin stuff supplier, even from that big one, the one who name rhymes with Sinew Bidirections!!
I highly recommend this company for our skin concocting needs.
