Amaranth Protein P1 Blend

A natural protein blend from amaranth seed obtained via a proprietary sustainable water based process which isolates the proteins leaving their native structure intact.

Functionality and Applications

BPN Amaranth Protein Blend is suitable for use in both skin and hair care products.
The unique protein blend in our Amaranth Protein P1 Blend has a film-forming/moisture retention effect which decreases transepidermal water loss and provides a conditioning layer. 

 

In vitro studies investigating the effect of BPN Amaranth Protein on skin viability and inflammatory response in a 3D skin model has shown BPN Amaranth Protein to have skin protecting properties against damage caused by detergent.  A human skin trial performed on volunteers has shown BPN Amaranth Protein to have skin whitening properties when compared to vehicle.

 

Ex vivo studies on hair have shown BPN Amaranth Protein P1 Blend to offer a protective effect against chemically induced damage.

Recommended Usage Level: 0.5 - 5%


Amaranth Peptide P2 Blend

A natural peptide hydrolysate from amaranth seed obtained via a proprietary sustainable water based process.  Known to the Aztecs as the "grain of the gods", amaranth has been cultivated for 8,000 years. It is an amino acid, gluten free, high protein and lysine and rich in bioactive peptides.

 

Functionality and Applications

The unique peptide blend in BPN Amaranth Peptide repairs and strengthens damaged hair making it ideal for use in hair care products.  Due to their low molecular weight and moisture binding properties, the peptides are able to penetrate and hydrate the hair. 

Ex vivo studies on human hair have shown BPN Amaranth Peptide to offer a reparative effect against chemically induced damage.
