FSS Protein Serum M is not your typical protein!

We’ve all heard the adage “everything old is now new” as is evident in the fashion industry where what was once old is now “new” again with trendy “retro” fashions. This cyclical pattern is also evident in cosmetic and personal care ap­plications. Formulators once relied on animal derived protein to effectively moisturize the skin while also acting as a tightening film former. Yet with the threat of prion diseases and BSE contamination, animal proteins have been replaced with plant derived protein hydrolysates in most personal care and cosmetic products such as shampoos, lotions, styling products and decorative applications.

Unfortunately the plant derived proteins have not been able to provide the same film forming benefits of animal de­rived proteins and chemists have had to search for other ingredients to use in addition to the plant hydrolysates. So once again there is this desire for “retro” functions with a twist, FSS Protein Serum M is not your typical protein! It may be used in lieu of animal derived proteins as a superior film former to instantly moisturize the skin while also function­ing as an anti-aging product to tighten the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. So instead of thinking functional ingredient, think trendy, new active for the cosmetic and personal care industries.

Additionally, the increase in the desire for multi-functional products has forced chemists to use a variety of different active ingredients to achieve anti-aging and moisturizing benefits. By using FSS Protein Serum M, formulators may create the same anti-aging and moisturizing effects using fewer raw materials. This trend for multifunctional products has been sparked by consumers’ hectic schedules, and the desire to reduce the amount of time de­voted to one’s personal care regimens.

Typical plant derived protein hydrolysates have molecular weights that range between 3,000 and 4,000 Daltons. Al­though they are capable of moisturizing the skin, the reduced molecular weight fractions are not capable of acting as film formers. Animal derived proteins typically used as film formers have molecular weights in excess of 100,000 Daltons. FSS Protein Serum M has a molecular weight of approximately 68,000 Daltons and is therefore not only capable of mois­turizing the skin, but also exhibits excellent film forming properties. The film forming properties of FSS Protein Serum M also provide an instant tightening and lifting effect and may reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also helping the skin appear firm.
