FSS Foaming Oat PF

Proteins are common ingredients in skin and hair care products. Functionally proteins form films that seal in moisture, economically they are an inexpensive alternative to most synthetic chemicals. Because proteins are integral components in all organisms, there are a wide variety of them available to cosmetic chemists. Due to the BSE stigma associated with animal derived proteins, formulators frequently opt for plant-based proteins such as oat protein. Dating back to 2000BC, oats, in various forms, including tea, food, and baths were used to treat insomnia, anxiety and inflammatory skin conditions. Today, oats coincide with the rigorous demand of the natural actives market place. Oat protein is a cost effective option for delivering soothing and protecting benefits to the hair and skin.

Oat protein is often hydrolyzed into lower molecular weight fractions to increase its solubility. Adding fatty acid condensate moieties, which enhance foaming qualities, further modifies the protein. Often consumers associate a product’s cleansing ability with its foaming capability. FSS Foaming Oat PF is a hydrolyzed oat protein with sodium cocoyl moieties. These are protein-fatty acid condensates that are used in mild shower, bath and shampoo products as well as surfactant-based facial cleansers, cold-wave preparations, fixatives and baby products.

Protein/fatty acid condensates have an anionic net charge similar to that of skin and hair so they rinses easily from hair and skin without leaving a sticky, irritating film behind. The complex has a hydrophobic fatty acid tail and a hydrophilic protein backbone. The hydrophobic region binds to lipophilic material and forms a micelle that encapsulates lipophilic species. The micelles have a hydrophobic interior and a hydrophilic exterior, which promote easy rinsing with water. Protein hydrolysates improve surfactant skin compatibility while the fatty acid moiety increases foaming properties. Hydrolyzed oat proteins consist of two subunits, gliadin and glutenin, which are capable of repairing damaged hair through these covalent links. Oat proteins condition hair with their moisture retention abilities and film forming properties. Both of these benefits will help improve the overall condition of the hair. Additionally, sulfhydryl groups in oat proteins improve the quality and functionality of hair care products.

FSS Foaming Oat PF is intended for use in mild cleansing products. Due to the protein/acid moieties associated with the structure, FSS Foaming Oat PF can be added to mild detergent products such as body gels, shampoos, body washes and facial cleansers. FSS Foaming Oat PF is also ideal for incorporation into products formulated for babies and small children.
