Pisum Sativum Peptide (Pea, Common pea, Field pea or Garden pea)
Scientists have recently introduced a stem cell booster for hair growth stimulation and hair loss prevention, Pisum Sativum, More commonly known by the name Pea peptide, which is both natural and safe for the use.
It possesses cell regenerative and anti-aging properties due to which it is said to enhance follicle stem cells to promote hair growth. Reportedly, it also prevents hair loss making use of the counteractive hair loss factor
Hydrolyzed proteins such as soy, wheat or oat have been used to impart conditioning benefits and film-forming properties to the hair for decades.
Pisum sativum Protein has a 65.4% BV, in comparison to Soy Protein which has 50.0% BV average and Wheat Protein with a 49.0% BV average. Biological Value is an accurate indicator of the available nutritional potential of a protein.
Pisum sativum protein is a complete source of Essential amino acids. In fact, studies have shown Pisum sativum has the most balanced amino acid profile of any vegetable protein, consisting of 22 amino acids, notably, rich in lysine. Lysine functions as a vital building block in human biology. Since lysine synthesis does not occur in the body naturally it must be obtained from outside sources, such as protein derived from Pisum sativum.
Pisum Sativum Peptide’s film-forming properties render it an effective moisturizer that provides protective benefits and a silky feel to the hair or skin. Pisum Sativum Peptide reduces the damage caused by free radicals to promote the scalp and follicle health essential producing youthful, voluminous looking hair.
Pea peptides have very high water-holding and oil absorption properties. Pea peptide can inhibit elastase, protect elastin, improve skin elasticity, increase skin tightness, and stimulate the synthesis of collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycan (chondroitin sulfate). It has moisture-binding properties which lock moisture in the skin and thus reduces acne. It helps to repair damaged cells both on the skin and the scalp and mends the pores. Pea peptides are known as anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory peptides which help to firm the skin. The collagen present in these peptides reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Pea Peptides leave the skin and hair soft and smooth in texture.
Pisum Sativa can be found in Acti-Labs products: Leave It Conditioning Styling Lotion with Collagen, FoliVate Serum, Frizz Police, Capill Hair Lotion and Stubborn Styling Gel
