Anti-Aging is the latest trend in Hair Care and FSS Pisum Sativum Peptide provides a potent and cost effective solution. FSS Pisum Sativum Peptide delivers Volumizing and antioxidant driven Anti-Aging benefits as well as film forming and conditioning benefits. Produced using a proprietary fermentation process this peptide moves hydrolyzed vegetable proteins into a new era.

Proteins are traditionally hydrolyzed using acids, alkalis, and enzymes or some combination thereof to produce random amino acid sequences. While traditional methods of hydrolysis are well accepted and effective, they are simplistic efforts to duplicate the normal cellular protein catabolism. Cells digest proteins into specific sequences to meet their nutritional needs. Active Concepts has harnessed the digestive abilities of a proprietary non-GMO bacterial strain, Lactobacillus, to produce Pisum sativum peptides with a controlled molecular weight of approximately 2000 Da.

Hydrolyzed proteins such as soy, wheat or oat have been used to impart conditioning benefits and film forming properties to the hair for decades. These hydrolysates are comprised of peptides with random amino acids sequences that aid in improving the elasticity and texture of the skin and hydration of the hair. Recent efforts within the Nutritional Industry have focused on the selection of more precise protein fragments to improve the benefits of supplements. In the course of that research, it has become clear that protein fragments from different sources have varied benefits. One of the Outliers is Pisum Sativum.

Recently, Pisum sativum Proteins have attracted the interest of Nutrition and Health advocates as a plant-based, hypoallergenic protein that yields a high Biological Value (BV). On average, Pisum sativum Protein has a 65.4% BV, in comparison to Soy Protein which has 50.0% BV average and Wheat Protein with a 49.0% BV average. Biological Value is an accurate indicator of the available nutritional potential of a protein. While it may have had a modest beginning, the enhanced bioavailability of Pisum sativum Proteins has caught the market by storm, boasting this product to be the quality alternative to other vegetable proteins.

Pisum sativum protein is a complete source of Essential amino acids. In fact, studies have shown Pisum sativum has the most balanced amino acid profile of any vegetable protein, consisting of 22 amino acids, notably, rich in lysine. Lysine functions as a vital building block in human biology. Since lysine synthesis does not occur in the body naturally it must be obtained from outside sources, such as protein derived from Pisum sativum.

FSS Pisum Sativum Peptide’s film-forming properties render it an effective moisturizer that provides protective benefits and a silky feel to the hair or skin. Recent demand for anti-aging hair products has prompted formulators to seek out materials and manufacturing methods that will allow targeted claims. FSS Pisum Sativum Peptide reduces the damage caused by free radicals to promote the scalp and follicle health essential producing youthful, voluminous looking hair.

5 of 5 Outstanding results!!! January 29, 2015
Reviewer: Kelli from Decatur, IL  
Purchased  a short time ago and have formulated with it several times now.  
You do have to get past the smell of this ingredient. In my experience all proteins have a distinct odor.  I have been formulating for 4 years now and I have experimented with every protein available for hair and skin products. With other proteins I do not smell anything after completing a formula but with this ingredient the smell was still detectable at the end of the formulation.   PLEASE do not let this deter you from trying this product.  I have made 3 conditioner batches with this and although the smell was there initially, after the conditioner  had set for several days it disappeared.  I did not have to worry about it interfering with my chosen fragrance oil.
The benefits of this ingredient, even at 2% were quite noticeable and my customer love it. Obviously the other ingredients in your total recipe will contribute to end feel and function. I will always include it in my conditioner formulas.
