Symrise Launches Plant-Based Hair and Skin Conditioners

November 2, 2007

Symrise introduced active ingredients Hydromoist L and Hydromoist O. Both new agents are plant-based peptide solutions obtained via enzymatic hydrolysis of either lupine proteins (Hydromoist L) or oat proteins (Hydromoist O).

Because the ingredients act as film formers and as effective hair and skin conditioners, they can be a replacement for hydrolyzed proteins derived from wheat, milk, soy and other similar sources. Both compounds act as moisturizers that make skin and hair soft and supple. They are gluten-free and preserved without the use of paraben. They are especially suited for hair that has been stressed by dyes or bleaching. More info: www.symrise.com
