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 Oil, Organic Baobab Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Daikon Seed Extract, and dl-Panthenol), cuticle creams, eczema salves or lotions, and body wash/lotion bars that target thinning skin or acne prone skin.
Benefits of Hydrolyzed Rice Protein:
Natural and sustainable crops
Gentle for all skin types
Improves hair volume
Strengthens hair and skin cells allowing healing and preventing damage
Decreases friction when combing wet hair
Hydrolyzed Rice Protein works by depositing large amounts of cationic amnio acids. These bond to the hair strands, smoothing the rough edges.. Then the anionic amino acids cause a repelling action to the naturally negatively charged hair fibers, giving hair more volume. The more the hair is washed/conditioned with products using just 1% Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, the more volume shown without it just being fizzy. This product does not create “dry” strands, which then appear to be volume but are really just dry. Hydrolyzed Rice Protein smooths the hair follicles and creates volume. Studies show anywhere from 13% to 32% increase with regular use.
