Keratin amino acids vs Hydrolyzed wheat keratin in Brazilian Keratin

Botonino™ System

With the Botonino™ System, you can achieve a quick two-step Brazilian keratin treatment in only 60 minutes. Only this treatment doesn’t use hydrolyzed wheat keratin. It uses keratin amino acids.

Let’s give you a break down on how the Botonino System was developed:

What is Hydrolyzed wheat keratin found in most Brazilian Keratin treatments?

In addition, hydrolyzed keratin does not straighten hair since it builds bonds instead of breaking them. It is not a vegan product since keratin comes from feathers, wool, nails, and other parts of animals. It cannot be sourced from vegetables or from plants either. And is neither vegan nor cruelty-free.

However, hydrolyzed protein can be synthesized from soy, wheat, and corn. It is not as effective as animal-derived keratin. Which may not restore the damaged hair structure (1)

Side Effects of Hydrolyzed keratin in Brazilian Keratin

A study found 5% hydrolyzed keratin to be non-irritating and non-sensitizing. However, 10% of hydrolyzed keratin may irritate the skin. It may cause acute urticaria (hives, swelling, and redness) and itchy eyes (2)(3)

Be sure to do a patch test before using any hydrolyzed wheat or hydrolyzed keratin

What is Keratin?

keratin, fibrous structural protein of hair, nails, horn, hoofs, wool, feathers. Also of the epithelial cells in the outermost layers of the skin. Keratin serves important structural and protective functions, particularly in the epithelium. In addition to regulating cell growth and protein synthesis, some keratins have a role in promoting cell survival. (4)

What are amino acids?

Amino Acids are the building block of proteins. Which necessary for many of the structures and functions of our bodies. Our bodies need 20 different amino acids to function daily. Our bodies can produce 11 out of the 20 amino acids we need. The other 9 are named “essential amino acids” as it is essential. We need to consume them ourselves, whether this be through food or products. (5)

What are the 9 essential Amino Acids?

The essential amino acids are: Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, and Valine.

What are Amino Acids good for?

Amino Acids help provide hair with moisture and strength, as well as repairing surface damage. They also help to build body, add shine, leaving hair looking and feeling smooth and silky. Overall, they’re a great natural ingredient to help improve your hair health.
