ABSTRACT

Symrise has developed a specific tailormade process to obtain natural peptides for hair care Composed of native proteins, it will work at the cuticle level to improve hair smoothness, shine and split ends. Utilizing a new strategy to address hair damage, Symrise is now targeting those charged sites within the cortex, creating new interactions and stabilizing the broken bonds in the proteins. SymProt’in® Oat and SymProt’in Lupin are both composed of natural peptides. They will deeply penetrate the hair fibre, reach the cortex and target the damaged and charged sites to build new interactions in order to restore the structural integrity for strength and resistance improvement. 

The composition of hair is about 95% protein. Protein can be found at all levels within the hair fibre: in the cuticles, the CMC (intercellular cement), the cortex, as well as in the medulla. That is why it is key to understand the role and properties of proteins in hair. Sensoriality, appearance and also strength and resistance of the fibre will depend on the hair protein quality.1
