What is keratin?
Keratin is one of a family of fibrous structural proteins known as scleroproteins and is the key structural material making up hair, nails and the outer layer of skin. We lose keratin as we age, which can lead to damage and signs of ageing to these areas.
The issue with other brands of keratin.
Keratin is not naturally soluble or digestible in its typical form. Keratin
treatments and topicals are expensive and ineffective remedies for weak and
damaged hair because they fail to solve the "root" problem – nutrient
deficiencies from stress or diet. If you put a strand of hair in a glass of
water, it would never dissolve. This demonstrates how difficult it is for
keratin to penetrate hair, skin and nails.
Why our scientists prefer Cynatine® HNS?
HNS is a revolutionary cosmeceutical ingredient comprised of solubilised
keratin. Other keratin supplements use keratin derived from waste products such
as chicken feathers and fish scales; however these are not effective as they
don’t contain the aminogram of Cynatine®
HNS, which is derived from sheep’s wool and contains the same amino acid profile
as required by humans. Cynatine®
HNS aids in protecting and repairing damaged hair, skin and nails and is
clinically proven to be effective at 500mg per day.
HNS is able to bond with hair in the body and has been shown to reduce hair loss
from washing, improve hair strength and improve the brightness and lustre of
HNS is capable of binding with the nail and providing improved strength,
elasticity and moisture retention.
HNS reduces fine lines and wrinkles through its zinc and copper complexes bound
to proteins. Cynatine®
HNS promotes firmness and elasticity in skin by improving the protein structure,
improving moisture retention, and reducing redness from inflammation or
sensitive skin by blocking PGE2 production. This powerful cosmeceutical improves
the brightness and radiance of skin through its natural antioxidant properties
and its ability to promote SOD and glutathione production.
