FSS Plant Keratin OS

Take a glance at your skin. Now, take a look at your hair. Based on outward appearances, they are as different as night and day. Anyone would be surprised to know that a major component of your skin, hair, and even your fingernails is the same material: keratin. Keratin is sourced from animals, No one can argue it is ineffective, thus the need for a naturally derived alternative has arisen. FSS Plant Keratin OS was created to replicate the benefits of the animal protein with none of the stigma. Keratin is a structural protein that does not soften in hot or cold water and is not susceptible to proteolysis. However, keratinaceous substances are somewhat vulnerable in another way. Repeated exposure of skin and hair to soaps, chemicals, hard water and harsh weather can cause dryness which can lead to more significant detrimental effects such as roughness, scaling, dullness and eventual breakage.


The high natural protein content of both the skin and the hair allows for extensive protein use in a wide variety of cosmetic applications. Because of their poor water solubility, most proteins are unsuitable for use in cosmetics. In order to be incorporated into cosmetic applications, proteins must undergo hydrolysis; the process by which a protein is cleaved in small peptide chains called hydrolysates or cleaved further into amino acid molecules. Traditionally, almost all proteins utilized in cosmetic products were derived from animal sources because of their availability and high functionality as a moisturizers, conditioners and film formers. Recently, consumer concerns regarding the use of animal proteins has led to user friendly plant-based alternatives from sustainable sources such as wheat and soybeans. Amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, play an important and functional role in keeping our skin and hair moisturized and healthy. FSS Plant Keratin OS is a vegetable derived alternative to animal hydrolyzed keratin.

FSS Plant Keratin OS is an oil soluble product designed to help lock in moisture when applied to the hair and skin and is suitable for many formulations and skin types. This complex is an ideal ingredient for both rinse-off and leave in skin and hair care products as a deep conditioning agent with easy formulation. FSS Plant Keratin OS may act as a moisture control and regulating agent to improve the softness of the hair and skin while helping decrease damage and minimizing roughness for a smooth, polished look and feel.
