Anti-Aging is the latest trend in Hair
Care and FSS Pisum Sativum Peptide provides a potent and cost effective
solution. FSS Pisum Sativum Peptide delivers Volumizing and antioxidant driven
Anti-Aging benefits as well as film forming and conditioning benefits. Produced
using a proprietary fermentation process this peptide moves hydrolyzed
vegetable proteins into a new era.
Proteins are traditionally hydrolyzed
using acids, alkalis, and enzymes or some combination thereof to produce random
amino acid sequences. While traditional methods of hydrolysis are well accepted
and effective, they are simplistic efforts to duplicate the normal cellular
protein catabolism. Cells digest proteins into specific sequences to meet their
Hydrolyzed proteins such as soy, wheat or
oat have been used to impart conditioning benefits and film forming properties
to the hair for decades. These hydrolysates are comprised of peptides with
random amino acids sequences that aid in improving the elasticity and texture
of the skin and hydration of the hair. Recent efforts within the Nutritional
Industry have focused on the selection of more precise protein fragments to
improve the benefits of supplements. In the course of that research, it has
become clear that protein fragments from different sources have varied
benefits. One of the Outliers is Pisum Sativum.
Recently, Pisum sativum Proteins have
attracted the interest of Nutrition and Health advocates as a plant-based,
hypoallergenic protein that yields a high Biological Value (BV). On average,Pisum sativum Protein has a 65.4% BV, in comparison to Soy Protein which has
50.0% BV average and Wheat Protein with a 49.0% BV average. Biological Value is
an accurate indicator of the available nutritional potential of a protein.
While it may have had a modest beginning, the enhanced bioavailability of Pisum
sativum Proteins has caught the market by storm, boasting this product to be
the quality alternative to other vegetable proteins.
Pisum sativum protein is a complete source
of Essential amino acids. In fact, studies have shown Pisum sativum has the
most balanced amino acid profile of any vegetable protein, consisting of 22
amino acids, notably, rich in lysine. Lysine functions as a vital building
block in human biology. Since lysine synthesis does not occur in the body
naturally it must be obtained from outside sources, such as protein derived
from Pisum sativum.
FSS Pisum Sativum Peptide’s film-forming
properties render it an effective moisturizer that provides protective benefits
and a silky feel to the hair or skin. Recent demand for anti-aging hair
products has prompted formulators to seek out materials and manufacturing
methods that will allow targeted claims. FSS Pisum Sativum Peptide reduces the
damage caused by free radicals to promote the scalp and follicle health
essential producing youthful, voluminous looking hair.
