HARKE UK is thrilled to introduce Amino Keratin by Sinerga, an exciting ingredient that is setting new standards in the personal care industry. 

Amino Keratin is a vegan alternative to traditional animal-derived keratin, designed to meet the evolving needs of both formulators and consumers for products that are not just effective, but are ethically produced and sustainable too. 

Why Amino Keratin?

Keratin is vital for the strength and resilience of hair (as well as nails and lashes) but it is traditionally sourced from animal products. However, with increasing consumer demand for cruelty-free and sustainable options, Amino Keratin from Sinerga offers a compelling plant-based alternative. It is composed of bio-fermented amino acids, replicating the amino acid profile of traditional keratin. This makes it an ideal choice for vegan and ethical product lines.

Amino Keratin is easy to formulate; it can be added to the aqueous phase with a temperature below 40℃, and is suitable for a wide pH range (between 4.5 and 8.0). 

Key Benefits of Amino Keratin

  • Vegan and Natural: A complete plant-based solution that avoids any animal-derived components, suitable for vegan cosmetics
  • Deep Penetration and Repair: Due to the small size of its amino acids, Amino Keratin penetrates deeply into the hair shaft, supplying vital structural components which strengthen, hydrate, and restore hair from the inside out
  • Enhanced Hair Health: It significantly improves hair’s resilience against breakage, enhances shine by improving light reflection, and deeply hydrates, reducing dryness and water loss
  • Versatile Application: Effective in both leave-on and rinse-off products, Amino Keratin can be incorporated into shampoos, conditioners, serums, and masks

Proven Efficacy

Amino Keratin has undergone rigorous testing to confirm its benefits. Results show impressive improvements in hair strength, with up to a 121% increase in resistance to breakage after four applications (see diagram below, where T1 is after 1 application and T2 is after 4 applications): 

Amino Keratin also enhances the structural integrity of hair cuticles:

This leads to better moisture retention and increased glossiness, making hair look healthier and more vibrant. In testing, 3% Amino Keratin was able to increase hair gloss by 31% and hydration by 35% (compared to untreated hair) after just 4 applications. Contact us for more images and data from testing.

A Sustainable and Ethical Choice

Choosing Amino Keratin supports the shift towards more sustainable personal care processes and consumer products. Its production involves bio-fermentation, a process that is significantly more environmentally friendly compared to traditional methods of extracting animal keratin. This aligns with global trends towards reducing environmental impact and promoting animal welfare in the beauty industry.
