Keraplast FK Protect Plus™ is extracted from wool using a mild process which results in a high MW soluble keratin protein. This natural form of protein can arrange itself into stable, cohesive films on the hair taking advantage of three dimensional interactions of amino acids within the native protein chains.
FK Protect Plus™ is a strong antioxidant potential (222 micromol TEAC/100ml) arising from its unique active cystine component. The antioxidant activity enables it to scavenge free radicals at the point of formation. This protects against the force multiplying damage of UV combined with pollution.
Keratin is one of nature’s most important building blocks providing structure and order, and is fundamental in the development of healthy tissues including skin, hair and nails. Keratins commonly used by hair care manufacturers are hydrolyzed i.e. they are simply small peptide fragments of one or two amino acids joined together.
Keraplast’s proprietary manufacturing and processing technologies gently extract full bioactive Functional Keratin® from natural, renewable sources (sheep’s wool) for incorporation into product solutions to enhance health, beauty and well-being.
