wheat amino acids

Rating:
Good
Categories:
Miscellaneous
A blend of amino acids from wheat protein after it has been broken down via hydrolysis. Most often used in hair-care products as a conditioning agent, but also found in skin-care products. There is limited research showing that wheat amino acids can penetrate the hair shaft (Source: International Journal of Cosmetic Science, October 1997, pages 215–226); however, most likely the smaller molecular size of the amino acids can penetrate hair better than whole protein sources.
