1. What is Hydrolyzed Keratin?

Hydrolyzed keratin is a biological material consisting predominantly of partially decomposed keratin. This protein is obtained from animal sources and undergoes a hydrolysis process, which consists of breaking down the protein molecules into smaller fragments. The result is a white to light yellow powder, with a characteristic odor and a protein richness greater than 90%. In addition, it contains more than 80% amino acids, which makes it a valuable component in natural cosmetics.
