All proteins are made from amino acids. Amino acids can be separated out into different groups based on whether they are hydrophilic (water hating), hydrophilic (water loving) or neutral.
Hydrolysed Rice Protein contains the following amino acid groups:
Approx. 33% Hydrophobic (Keratin contains 39%).
Approx. 47% Hydrophilic (Keratin contains 34%).
Approx. 20% Neutral (Keratin contains 27%).
Use Levels: 1-5% as supplied.
Solubility: Water soluble.
Heat Stability: Excellent - can be added into the water phase of the formula prior to heating, or can be added cold.
pH Stability: The pH at which this protein is neutral is between pH 4.5 - 5. We recommend formulating with this at pH around 3.8 - 4.2 to balance safety and efficacy.
