Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein
CAS No. 91745-12-9

Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein is a water-soluble, cosmetic grade vegetable protein extract made from the large seeds of the Adansonia Digitata fruit. The seeds are obtained via ethical and sustainable methods which support local communities in Africa.

The Boabab is an iconic African tree called the "tree of life" due to its ability to store large amounts of water and withstand the harsh climate. Individual trees can live more than 2,000 years. Ancient folklore suggests that water infused with baobab seeds gives strength, good health, and good fortune.

For the hair, Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein provides an anti-aging treatment including damage recovery, protection from damage, nourishment, and strength and conditioning effects. Hair becomes damaged through UV-exposure, heat, pollution, and stress. Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein has been tested on African, Brazilian, and Caucasian hair, and has been shown to have positive results in all 3 hair types.

For skin treatment, Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein defends skin against UV stress by limiting cellular photo-aging. It restores skin vitality by reducing DNA damage following UV exposure. It maintains healthy, supple skin with nourishing amino acids.

Benefits:

  • Anti-aging solution for hair  and skin care
  • Superior hair and skin damage recovery
  • Intense protection from UV-stress and heat
  • Deeply nourishes hair for greater manageability
  • Instantly conditions for a softer, smoother feel
  • Gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO

In vitro tests:

In laboratory tests, African and Brazilian hair was relaxed using a lye relaxer. In the African hair, reatment with Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein showed a 5% increase in elasticity and a 29% increase in strength compared to placebo. In Brazilian hair, Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein showed a 12% increase in hair strength compared to placebo. In Caucasian hair that was bleached and colored, Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein aided in damage recovery with 10% improvement in elasticity and 14% increase in strength compared to baseline.

DNA microarray data shows that Hydrolyzed Baobab Protein up-regulates expression of genes involved in DNA repair, including the p53 and histone H2AX. The treatment significantly reduced p53 levels compared to untreated, UV damaged cells.

Our Customers Say...
Love the new website!
Jen is such a pro when it comes to prompt & courteous customer service, plus shipping rates are as reasonable as possible these days - not like some sites that just gouge you.
I'm a small customer, but always feel that my business is valued.
Thx, Jen.

First time ordered on 10th October, 2011 and am just loving the information sent on tracking my order from USA to Australia.. well done
Colleen Hagarty, (Jordella)

I ordered some of the Shea Nilotica from LC and it's been sitting in my supply area for a few weeks because my household has been so busy. I am just now getting around to trying it for the 1st time and let me just say...WOW!! I am head over heels in LOOOVE with the Shea Nilotica. I've used other re-fined and unrefined she butters but this is by far superior. I can't believe how creamy it is and how satiny my skin feels. Right after I used a little I slathered some on my 3 yr old! Oh how happy I am that I ordered the 5 pound bag rather than just a sample size after I called Jen to inquire about it. LC rocks!

I just received the L-Ascorbic Acid now, boy, it melted so quickly. i'm very, very pleased with this product. I wish I'd listened to the testimonials on-line so that my other L-Ascorbic Acid I bought from another retailer wouldn't be wasted. It takes too long before it melts even if its a fine powder. It is good for drinking with beverage as a Vitamin C supplement, but if you use it for facial serum - forget about it because the melting takes forever unless you mix it with hot water, then what's the point of doing it - we all know that Vitamin C oxides with hot temperatures.
So folks, if you want Vitamin C Serum, Lotioncrafter is the best, not to mention about their fast shipping!
