Cosmocair C100

INCI name: creatine

Use levels: 0.5-1.5%

Applications: hair care, stressed and damaged hair products, shampoos, conditioners

Comments: A naturally occurring amino acid derivative that has traditionally been used as a nutritional supplement for its phosphate transporting activity. Has been found to be a multi-functional cosmetic additive due to its unique molecular structure. Has greater repair efficacy (tensile strength and elasticity) on damaged (permed and color-treated) hair than well known hydrolyzed keratin and hydrolyzed wheat protein. Improves the tensile strength of the hair by building back electrostatic bonds between amino groups and anionic side chains of the amino acids of the hair. Additionally, it builds electrostatic bonds between carboxylate group and alkaline side chains of the amino acids of the hair, resulting in increased tensile strength. It comes in a water-soluble, crystalline form.


INCI name: hydrolyzed sericin

Use levels: 2-5%

Applications: scalp and hair treatment products

Comments: A hydrolysate of the silk protein sericin. An aqueous, amber-colored solution with a unique affinity for proteins. Penetrates the cuticle layer of the hair shaft and binds to keratin of the hair. A biological multifunctional protective film is formed which seals the outer cuticle layer of the hair and nourishes and hydrates the hair from the inside, resulting in hair with improved sheen, elasticity, smoothness and ease of combing. It also soothes and hydrates an irritated scalp. Setakol is stable at pH 5-9 and is compatible with up to 30% alcohol.

Fruit Vinegar

INCI name: acetum (apple) vinegar (and) prunus armeniaca (apricot) fruit extract (and) prunus persica (peach) fruit extract (and) pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract (and) polysorbate 80

Applications: hair care products, shampoos, conditioners

Comments: Fruit Vinegar, from Provital, S.A., contains a mixture of three different extracts--apricot, peach and apple. Each extract has active flavonoids, which are characteristically free radical scavengers and antioxidants with anti-inflammatory attributes. Conditioning attribute also from vinegar.
