Skin and Hair Building Blocks!

Three new ones for you!

Hydrolyzed Rice Protein is an excellent addition to any skincare and hair care product, including shampoo and conditioner bars. Hydrolyzed Rice Protein is made of natural rice bran fiber, which means it is gluten free and vegan. Hydrolyzed Rice Protein is a superb vegetable protein that delivers high amounts of amino acids to both hair and skin.

Using hydrolyzed rice protein in hair care products can help increase total hair volume and help to strengthen strands. The key aminos are arginine, histidine, and lysine. These all contribute to stronger, healthier hair. This product does not have to be in wash-off formulas so consider using it in your leave-in hair care formulas. Leave in conditioners, styling sprays, serums, scalp treatments and more! We have a huge compliment of excellent hair treatment ingredients.

When using it in skincare products, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein delivers high levels of moisture and the amino acids help to boost natural collagen production and build up skin density. Consider this if you’re making an eyebrow or eyelash serum (boost with Organic Castor OilOrganic Baobab OilMeadowfoam Seed OilDaikon Seed Extract, and dl-Panthenol), cuticle creams, eczema salves or lotions, and body wash/lotion bars that target thinning skin or acne prone skin.

Hydrolyzed hemp protein is an excellent emollient and strength builder for both hair and skin. Hydrolyzed hemp protein is made out of USA grown hemp seeds and is a power-packed protein for your formulations.

When used in skincare formulations, Hydrolyzed Hemp Protein is like a moisture bomb! Super high levels of moisture help to combat dry, flaky skin, without feeling heavy or greasy. Because of the high protein index Hydrolyzed Hemp Protein is an excellent option for acne prone skin, as it balances the pH without leaving that greasy feel.

DL-Panthenol! DL-Panthenol, also known as ProVitamin B5, is an excellent addition to any skincare or hair care formula. Panthenol works as a conditioning agent, restoring shine and luster to skin and hair. Panthenol also helps to increase the strength of hair and skin. Panthenol is also an anti-oxidant, helping to protect skin and hair from aging.

DL-Panthenol is a white powder that you can add to your water phase of your formulations. DL-Panthenol is made of a mixture of 50% D-panthenol and 50% L-panthenol. D-Panthenol is covered in the skin to pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5). Vitamin B5 helps to boost cell production, making it an excellent ingredient for damaged skin and hair products.
