Quinoa (Keenwa) Protein, Hydrolyzed
What are the benefits of Quinoa Protein, Hydrolyzed?
Pronounced (Keen-wa), Quinoa protein is hydrolyzed from the Quinoa grain, through an enzymatic process.
Quinoa Protein offers a unique combination of molecular weight amino acids offering enhanced penetration for hair and skin nourishment along with film forming activity for greater repair, hydration, and shine.
Quinoa protein is characterized as being more like an animal protein, than a vegetable protein, due to its amino acid profile. Considered to be a complete protein, it contains all 8 of the essential amino acids with the highest level of protein among grains. High levels of Cysteine, Cystine, Lysine, Methionine, Tryptophane and Tyrosine greatly enhance its ability to assist in the repair, protection, and conditioning of both hair and skin.
