FSS Amino Acid Blend PF

Amino acids serve as building blocks of proteins and are required for good health. Amino acids are popular among the food industry and are often added to many food products and nutritional supplements. Failure to consume enough of these amino acids can affect a person’s overall health and impair their ability to heal wounds and repair tissues, which can accelerate the aging process. In this case, signs of aged, dull skin appear more noticeable, which has made amino acids a popular additive in many skin care applications.

Not all proteins are created equal. Amino acids, protein’s most basic unit, respond differently to weathering processes depending upon the protein source and molecular structure. Amino acids are hygroscopic, exhibiting powerful moisture retention properties thus helping skin and hair maintain their natural moisture levels. Amino Acid complexes can increase the equilibrium moisture content of hair and influence the moisture transfer to and from hair. The low molecular weight fractions of amino acids offer moisturization and restructuring properties that help mitigate hair shaft damage. Since the hair follicle serves as a reservoir and a major entry point for topically applied compounds, hair can be reinforced with enriched structure and reflective shine using amino acid benefits.

Arginine is known to offer antioxidant properties and assist in maintaining collagen production. Aspartic acid is used for exfoliation benefits to remove dead skin cells from the skin or scalp. PCA is known to provide smoothing, hydrating, and firming properties to the skin, while also providing moisturization for the hair. Glycine interacts with collagen production to help the body repair damaged tissue. Alanine is known to balance moisture levels on the skin while improving hydration and reducing transepidermal water loss. Serine has been used for skin and hair conditioning, as well as anti-static properties in cosmetic products. Valine works synergistically with the body to nourish, replenish hydration, and detoxify skin and hair. Proline is commonly used as a conditioning agent for hair and skin care, but is also known to strengthen the hair shaft for stronger, healthier hair. Threonine is known to assist in creating glycine and serine in the skin, which are two amino acids that are necessary for the production of collagen, elastin, and other tissues. Isoleucine is known to offer skin repair benefits to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as create more supple skin. Histidine is commonly used in skin and hair care for growth and repair benefits. Phenylalanine is known to help reduce pigmentation and balance the skin tone. Amino acids work together to provide an array of benefits for the body, inside and out.

FSS Amino Acid Blend PF is a preservative free ingredient that may be used to capitalize on the benefits associated with amino acids in a variety of hair and skin care applications. Benefits: Nourishing & Conditioning
