Ingredient INCI & PURPOSE
Egg hydrolysate OS INCI: Cocoyl Hydrolyzed Albumen
Fision® Hydrate INCI: Water, sodium PCA, wheat amino acids, panthenol, glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, hydroxyproline)
Hydrolyzed baobab protein INCI: Hydrolyzed Adansonia Digitata (Baobab) Seed Extract

For hair, it’s claimed it can repair damage and increase hair strength, making it feel smoother, reducing friction between the strands, which reduces damage. It can reduce breakage and increase elasticity by hydrating hair, which is great for all hair types, especially textured or fine hair.

For skin, it’s claimed that it can reduce “DNA damage after UV exposure”, which is making a pretty huge claim there, and one that I can’t really confirm. It works as a great film former that can prevent transepidermal water loss while hydrating skin without feeling super occlusive or cloying. It works as an anti-irritant for all skin types.

Hydrolyzed flax protein
Hydrolyzed hemp protein

INCI: Hydrolyzed Cannabis Sativa Seed Extract

It’s a larger protein over at least 3,500 Daltons*, it won’t penetrate skin or hair, but forms a film to increase smoothness and decrease flakiness by increasing hydration in skin while strengthening hair, increasing its elasticity while reducing friction and combing forces that can cause damage.

In skin care products, it’s a film former that increases hydration, which reduces feelings and appearance of rough skin to make it look smoother, less ashy or flaky. It might work to repair skin damage, like sun spots.

Hydrolyzed keratin 30
Hydrolyzed oat protein
Hydrolyzed quinoa protein
Hydrolyzed rice protein
Hydrolyzed silk protein
Hydrolyzed soy protein
Hydrolyzed yogurt protein (also found as yogurt hydrolysate) Contains probiotics, which might help with atopic dermatitis, acne, and “normal” skin.
Use in skin care products: Hydrating, film forming, skin conditioning. Soothes irritated skin, reduces transepidermal water loss (TEWL)
Use in hair care products: Hydrating, film forming, hair conditioning, increases hydration and elasticity, which increases strength and reduces breakage.

Keratin hydrolysate silox Water & Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol

This is an ingredient from Croda called Keravis. This article notes that the protein has a molecular weight of 1800, which means it can penetrate “the hair shaft to optimize moisture content and plasticity of the hair, while also forming a cross-linking film that coats the hair to lubricate, protect and reinforce the cuticle.” This is supposed to make hair stronger while remaining flexible, which reduces breakage.

It’s a “film former, moisturizer and hair strengthening agent” that can penetrate “the hair shaft to increase moisture content & coating to lubricate hair and reinforce the cuticle.” (Reference) It can reduce combing forces, which reduces damage from friction, and it can keep water out, preventing the hair from swelling, which can lead to a raised cuticle and frizzies. And it can help our hair maintain and increase elasticity and flexibility. (Reference)

Milk hydrolysate PF (INCI: Hydrolyzed milk protein) Use in skin care products: Anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, film forming ingredient that soothes irritated skin, increases hydration, and reduces transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
Use in hair care products: It increases hydration and elasticity, which increases strength and reduces breakage while increasing wet and dry combing. You’ll see an improvement in smoothness and gloss as it film forms to protect the hair strand.

NaturePep® Amaranth Water and Amaranthus Caudatus Seed Extract.

This ingredient is suggested for hair care products, like rinse-off conditioners as well as leave-in conditioners and styling products. They claim it can increase the diameter of hair fibres to provide us with “fuller, thicker, healthier looking hair” without increasing friction between the hair strands. It’s great for volumizing products as it doesn’t weigh down hair, giving it more bounce and movement, which always looks lovely. It claims to increase gloss and shine by smoothing down the hair strand, and reduces friction between strands, which reduces damage and increases manageability. Elasticity in our hair is important so it’ll spring back from being pulled or combed, and this ingredient can help restore elasticity and make hair stronger in that way by hydrating our hair strands.

Pumpkin seed extract (hydrolyzed protein)

also found in the e-book, Botanical extracts, part one

This is a water soluble hydrolyzed protein derived from pumpkin seeds that works as an anti-aging, anti-oxidant, treatment for scar tissue and stretch marks that might stimulate collagen production and inhibit enzymes that degrade fibrillin, “a glycoprotein, which is essential for the formation of elastic fibers found in connective tissue”.. It can form a film on our skin to hydrate, which makes skin look and feel smoother while lessening the appearance of fine lines.
