Ecological and natural beauty are two of the biggest hair care market trends in the industry. Givaudan’s Clean and Natural Study 2019 demonstrated that 91% of consumers are interested in the concept of clean beauty for hair care. In addition, they seek natural ingredients and products that are “free from chemicals.” According to the study, 80% of them find that wheat protein fits well with the idea of clean beauty for their hair, and 78% of them think the local wheat biomass is aligned with the concept. Givaudan’s researchers have developed Naturein Wheat Peptides, abiding by these two fundamental pillars.
As consumers are becoming increasingly conscious about environmental impact, the majority of them use natural brands exclusively, or associate them with mainstream brands. By being 100% natural and crafted in French farming regions in a Biorefinery platform, Naturein Wheat Peptides answer all consumer requests for a clean product that is not only good for the consumer, but also for the environment. An effective alternative to cationic guar, it acts as a conditioner to smooth and detangle the hair.
“Cationic guar is the most used chemical ingredient in the hair care market. To prove the effectiveness of our natural asset, we opted for tests that put Naturein Wheat Peptides in competition with cationic guar. Results prove that it is more effective in record time. All clinical tests carried out on a hundred people demonstrate the excellence of Naturein Wheat Peptides,” said Amandine Scandolera, PhD, head of biological evaluation.
Clinical tests have been further enhanced by a hair care expert who evaluated the impact of Naturein Wheat Peptides on wet and dry hair. The results show that 3% of the wheat peptides extract significantly improved (+20%) the detangling on wet hair (versus +15% with 0.3% cationic guar). In addition, it significantly improves (+22%) the combing and smoothness of dry hair (versus 5% with 0.3% cationic guar). Two effective results have also been perceived by the panel during clinical tests. According to Givaudan, 80% said their hair felt good (versus 40% placebo) and 70% said their hair was easier to untangle (versus 45% placebo) after applying the active product.
