ProCutiGen® Thermal Shield prevents the thermally induced damage that breaks the cysteine bridges of the hair, making it porous, weakened and more prone to breakage. Rather than focusing on repairing broken bonds that occur during thermal stress, ProCutiGen® Thermal Shield consists of bivalent cationic peptides that create a de novo cuticle on the hair to prevent damage from happening in the first place.
Cuticle preservation is essential to prevent hair damage. The cuticle is the outermost layer of the hair, composed of overlapping cells that shield the cortex, while holding moisture and protecting hair from the environment. Damage to the cuticle compromises the structural integrity of the hair shaft, making hair prone to breakage. Utilizing the concept of synthetic biology, ProCutiGen® Thermal Shield is a bivalent cationic lipopeptide that self-assembles into a neo-cuticle on the hair. The formation of this biomimetic cuticle offers protection from high temperature styling to promote healthy hair!
ProCutiGen® Thermal Shield utilizes the concept of synthetic biology to self-assemble into a biomimetic neocuticle on the hair. The formation of this biomimetic cuticle offers protection from heat styling and other thermal treatments to promote healthy hair cuticles. ProCutiGen® Thermal Shield is an ideal ingredient for use in a wide range of hair care applications to protect hair from thermal styling damage. Incorporate ProCutiGen® Thermal Shield into shampoo, conditioner, and styling applications to offer revolutionary ProBonding protection!
