KeraVeg18 is a vegetable-based alternative to animal keratin that has properties comparable to, and in some cases better than, hydrolyzed animal keratin. It can be used in any hair care formulations as a more sustainable product offering. KeraVeg18 is a cohesive solution containing wheat and soy amino acids, with additional pure amino acids (of fermented vegetable origin) that are carefully selected to mimic the functional ratios of amino acids in human hair.
KeraVeg18 contains wheat amino acids and soy amino acids, in addition to three individual amino acids; arginine, serine and threonine. These three amino acids were chosen to help mimic the composition of human hair keratin. Arginine is widely known to help reinforce and strengthen hair fibers. Arginine has strong affinity to the hair, thereby delivering strong conditioning & hydrating properties. Serine acts as a precursor to ceramides and delivers conditioning benefits to the hair. Threonine is an essential amino acid that helps to maintain protein balance in the body.
