FSS Vegan Keratin SF

Background: Chickpea, lentil, and quinoa are superfoods plentiful in nature and provide an easily accessible path to mimic the amino acid composition of hydrolyzed animal keratin. Chickpeas and lentils are old world pulses in the legume family and have traditionally been incorporated into many culinary creations. Lentils and chickpeas are sources of high quality protein, rich in amino acids such as arginine, aspartic and glutamic acids, and leucine.3,4 Quinoa, also known as ‘the mother grain’, is best known as a food ingredient and offers a complete amino acid profile– the highest level of protein of all grains.5 Quinoa contains an amino acid profile rich in lysine, methionine, and cysteine.5 The use of plant based protein as source for cosmetic innovation satisfies the growing consumer demand for vegan beauty and ingredient transparency.


FSS Vegan Keratin SF offers a biomimetic and vegan alternative to hydrolyzed keratin protein. The selective combination of quinoa, lentil, and chickpea peptides provides a plant-based, non-GMO, gluten-free functional equivalent to water soluble hydrolyzed keratin. FSS Vegan Keratin SF effectively increases hair hydration and smooths hair to reduce frizz. Perfect for emulsions, shampoos, conditioners and sprays, FSS Vegan Keratin SF allows brands to capture eco-conscious beauty without compromise.
