Proteins are complex nitrogen-containing substances comprised of amino acids. They are the components of all living matter. As the building blocks of living systems, survival without amino acids is impossible. All proteins are biopolymers, but not all biopolymers are proteins, as these can also include carbohydrates (such as cellulose and starches).
At Croda, our expertise is in processing natural protein sources into functional ingredients which provide impressive benefits for products used in hair and skin care applications.
Protein hydrolysates can be modified in some way to alter their functionality. This modification can take the form of quaternisation, acylation or copolymerisation.
At Croda, we offer a wide range of protein hydrolysates, including acid, alkaline, enzyme, as well as their derivatives including quaternised and acylated proteins and protein co-polymers.
Nature offers a wealth of protein sources for use in hair and skin care applications. Here are some examples of the protein sources that Croda utilise:
Croda’s protein biopolymers are functional natural products proven to deliver multiple benefits to both hair and skin including:
• Moisture regulation
• Easier hair combing
• Skin smoothing
• Skin tightening
• Hair strengthening
• Wear resistance
