Hydrolyzed soy protein is a type of edible soy that is manufactured by chemical processing of natural soy. This amber non viscous liquid is a water soluble extract that is obtained from the soybean plant.
Hydrolyzed Soy protein has been broken down into smaller chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins, thereby making it ideal in the formulation of skin care products.
Hydrolyzed Soy Protein in Cosmetic Products
This ingredient is used in the formulation of body, face, hand and neck skin care products and cosmetics. This cosmetic grade soy protein is characterized by low odor and light color which makes up its superior soy hydrolyzate.
The high quality vegetable sourced protein offers films that are moisture retentive, sealing and protective. It also adds shine to skin care products, while increasing the skin’s ability to bind moisture. It is ideal for use in dry climates where it reduces the chapping and roughness of skin.
The Hydrolyzed Soy Protein has anti-aging properties
Because hydrolyzed soy protein is a great source of isoflavones, it is able to offer protection to the skin against hormone-related aging, as is the case with menopause. Indeed, isoflavones have been found to have estrogenic activity.
What this means is that should the natural levels of estrogen in the body drop during menopause, isoflavones are able to compensate by binding to the same receptor sites.
As we age and our hormone levels drop, it is the skin, our biggest organ, which typically shows the results. With hydrolyzed soy protein, you can help to bring back the youthful radiance of your skin.
