Proteins Proteins

Proteins are any of the group of highly complex organic compounds found in all living cells and comprising the most abundant class of all biological molecules. Protein comprises approximately 50% of cellular dry weight. Hundreds of protein molecules have been isolated in pure, homogeneous form and many have been crystallized. All contain carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, and nearly all contain sulfur as well. Some proteins also incorporate phosphorous, iron, zinc, and copper. Proteins are large molecules with high molecular weights (from about 10,000 for small ones [of 50100 amino acids] to more than 1,000,000 for certain forms). Proteins are composed of varying amounts of the same 20 amino acids, which in the intact protein are united through covalent chemical linkages called peptide bonds. The amino acids, linked together, form linear unbranched polymeric structures called polypeptide chains. Such chains may contain hundreds of amino-acid residues, which are arranged in specific order for a given species of protein. Collagen, Elastin, and Keratin are all natural proteins whose production slows with the process of aging.

Proteins are as important to skin and hair as they are for the body. In hair care they offer cuticle smoothing and repair benefits as well as conditioning and in the skin they serve as a necessary part of the skin's natural moisturizing factor, which is essential for optimal skin health and function. The breakdown in natural moisture barrier and loss of hydration is one of the first signs of damaged skin and is the leading contributing factor in premature aging of the skin.

As with all Ingredients To Die For cosmetic materials, Proteins and Amino Acids are for topical use only!
All Ingredients To Die For proteins are PF (Paraben Free) / GF (Glycerin Free) / FF (Formaldehyde Free).
All are preserved with: benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate.
