This peptide is made up of one of the most complete amino acid profiles of any vegetable protein. It comprises consisting of 22 amino acids, most noticeably lysine - one of the most potent building blocks in the human body. It provides wonderful anti-oxidant properties.
Our body cannot synthesise lysine naturally so we need to derive to from outside sources. if you find a natural source with higher lysine/amino acid content than pea protein then we suggest you get some!
Uses - in your anti-ageing products, add in the water phase at 0.5% - 5%.
Also very good in your hair products, where many find it is a voluminiser as well as an anti-oxidant. ( If using in the hair we suggest a leave on application is best; ie don't wash it down the drain).
