ORGANIC COLOR SYSTEM PERM

Organic Curl Systems is a revolutionary product, which is free from ammonia and thioglycolates. Enriched with plant amino acids, it works around the natural pH level of the hair, which is left undamaged by the process. The key trend in today’s perms is soft curls, full of volume and movement which is exactly what Organic Curl Systems accomplishes. It is a revolutionary perming, relaxing, and straightening product which contains Cysteamin HCL, an ingredient far gentler than chemical based perms. The neutraliser system contains plant amino acids, which soothe and condition the scalp. The hair is left with a natural feel and shine.

 

Organic Curl Systems works between pH 4.5 and 6.5, depending on how much activator is added and leaves the hair at its natural pH level, so it is undamaged by the perming process. Organic Curl Systems is suitable for all hair types, even damaged hair.

what are keratins treatments?

The Keratin Treatment is also knows as Brazilian Keratin Treatment, Brazilian Straightening System, Progressive Straightening, Brazilian Blowout and Escova Progressiva among others.

 

WHAT IS IT?

 

It is a revolutionary process that softens, shines, and makes the hair healthy.

It penetrates the hair repairing internal damage and coats the hair preventing further damage. The results are smooth, silky hair. It is not a chemical that restructures the hair. It is a replenishing treatment that reconditions and protects the hair from water and heat damage while enhancing it´s natural shine.

The Brazilian hair treatment is excellent on all types of chemically treated hair (bleached, hi-lights, colored, permed, relaxed or previously straightened. It is excellent for getting rid of curly, frizzy, damaged, unhealthy, dull, mistreated hair.

The Brazilian treatment is made up of "Keratin" a liquid form of hair. There are no harsh chemicals. The Brazilian treatment can be used on children (6 years and older), teens and adults (men and women).

 

The Brazilian treatment DOES NOT use strong chemicals to open and close the hair cuticle in an effort to straighten it. It only coats the hair. It does not break the bonds of the hair shaft like straightners do. Keratin is a natural substance which comprises approximately 88% of your hair.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brazilian treatment is not permanent. It naturally fades out of the hair. The hair will stay soft, shiny and healthy looking. The more you do the treatment the better condition the hair becomes. The treatment also makes the hair very manageable. It will require less blow drying time and results will be very good with a flat iron.

The Keratin Treatment is an innovative process that transforms the hair in its entirety. The treatment is keratin based, keratin is the primary protein of the skin, hair and nails. This natural substance gives hair the ability to return to its original healthy, shiny, smooth state.

Unlike other products available in the market, such as relaxers or the Japanese thermal conditioning, the Keratin Treatment straightens the hair without damaging or changing its texture. The treatment can be use in all hair types, including chemically treated hair (colored, permed, relaxed, highlighted and bleached).

The Keratin Treatment is also knows as Brazilian Keratin Treatment, Brazilian Straightening System, Progressive Straightening, Brazilian Blowout and Escova Progressiva among others.

The application process lasts anywhere from 1.5 to 4 hours depending on the length and thickness of the hair. After product is applied, it is sealed with a hot iron which traps moisture, hydrates the hair and creates a glossy finish. Results are visible immediately after treatment is completed, clients are amazed to say the least. Hair looks healthy and youthful, it resembles children’s hair.

Taking care of the hair after the Keratin Treatment is applied is effortless. The amount of time required to style hair will decrease , . Others require some blow drying and minimum styling time. This treatment restores hair resiliency: humidity, rain or sweat will no longer affect the hairstyle. No more frizzy hair!

The results last two to four months, the treatment fades progressively as hair is washed. As clients repeat the treatment every few months or so, you will be able to observe the improved quality of hair grown after the Keratin Treatment was applied.

This revolutionary process was developed in Brazil, and is now available in the US and other markets in North America, Latin America and Europe

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

When it comes to keratin, tough is good. Its strong protective qualities improve the hair both inside and out. Our unique biopolymer ingredient is virtually a "liquid form of hair” that gently blends with the hair on your head. It brings to hair what it was lacking to begin with and what it has lost over the years. Is the hair dull dry and damaged? Is it curly, wavy, frizzy, overly voluminous or unmanageable? Application of our keratin treatment puts an end to all that. The smaller keratin molecules penetrate the hair cortex improving and repairing the quality of the hair from the inside. The added strength, elasticity and moisture result in the smooth, soft, shiny and straightened effect. The larger molecules coat the hair cuticle and take the environmental insults such as UV rays, smog, and smoke for your hair on the outside. Further damage to the hair shaft is prevented.

THE INGREDIENT LIST, UNDER,ARE COMMONLY USES IN KERATINE

 

TREATMENTS

 

 

Glycerin

 

 

Glycerol is a chemical compound with the formula HOCH2CH(OH)CH2OH. This colorless, odorless, viscous liquid is widely used in pharmaceutical formulations. Also commonly called glycerin or glycerine, it is a sugar alcohol, and is sweet-tasting and of low toxicity.

Glycerol has three hydrophilic alcoholic hydroxyl groups that are responsible for its solubility in water and its hygroscopic nature.

Commonly use in foods and beverages, glycerol serves as humectants, solvent and sweetener, and May help preserve foods. It is also used as filler in commercially prepared low-fat foods (i.e., cookies), and as a thickening agent in liqueurs. Glycerol also serves as a way, along with water, to preserve certain types of leaves. Glycerol is also used as a sugar substitute. In this regard, it has approximately 27 calories per teaspoon and is 60% as sweet as sucrose. Although it has about the same food energy as table sugar, it does not raise blood sugar levels, nor does it feed the bacteria that form plaques and cause dental cavities. As a food additive, glycerol is also known as E number E422.

Pharmaceutical and personal care applications

Glycerol is used in medical and pharmaceutical and personal care preparations, mainly as a means of improving smoothness, providing lubrication and as humectants. It is found in cough syrups, elixirs and expectorants, toothpaste, mouthwashes, skin care products, shaving cream, hair care products, and soaps.

As a 10% solution, glycerol prevents tannins from precipitating in ethanol extracts of plants (tinctures). It is also used as a substitute for ethanol as a solvent in preparing herbal extractions. It is less extractive and is approximately 30% less able to be absorbed by the body. Fluid extract manufacturers often extract herbs in hot water before adding glycerin to make glycerites.

Used as a laxative when introduced into the rectum in suppository or liquid (enema) form; irritates the bowel and induces a hyper osmotic effect.

Glycerol is a component of glycerol soap, which is made from denatured alcohol, glycerol, sodium castorate (from castor), sodium cocoate, sodium tallowate, sucrose, water, and parfum (fragrance). Sometimes one adds sodium laureth sulfate. This kind of soap is used by people with sensitive, easily-irritated skin because it prevents skin dryness with its moisturizing properties. It is possible to make glycerol soap at home.

It is also used in de-/anti-icing fluids

 

ETHER PG-1

Also look PEG

 

 

 

 

Propylene glycol, PG is an organic compound (a diol alcohol); usually a tasteless, odorless, and colorless clear oily liquid that is hygroscopic and miscible with water, acetone, and chloroform.

Propylene glycol is considerably less toxic and may be labeled as "non-toxic antifreeze". It is used as antifreeze, in food-processing. It is also used in food, medicines, and cosmetics, often as a binding agent. Propylene glycol is "generally recognized as safe" by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in food.

Propylene glycol is a diatomic alcohol. It can form mono- and di- ethers and esters being treated with alcohols or acids respectively

 

Polypropylene glycol or polypropylene oxide is the polymer of propylene glycol. Chemically it is a polyether. The term polypropylene glycol or PPG is reserved for low to medium range molar mass polymer when the nature of the end-group, which is usually a hydroxyl group, still matters.

 

 

Polyethers

Polyethers are compounds with more than one ether group. While the term generally refers to polymers like polyethylene glycol and polypropylene glycol, low molecular compounds such as the crown ethers may sometimes be included.

 

polymer

 

 

Is a substance composed of molecules with large molecular mass composed of repeating structural units, or monomers, connected by covalent chemical bonds? The word is derived from the Greek, "many" "part". Well known examples of polymers include plastics, DNA and proteins.

While the term "polymer" in popular usage suggests "plastic", polymers comprise a large class of natural and synthetic materials with a variety of properties and purposes. Natural polymer materials such as shellac and amber have been in use for centuries. Biopolymers such as proteins (for example hair, skin and part of the bone structure) and nucleic acids play crucial roles in biological processes. A variety of other natural polymers exist, such as cellulose, which is the main constituent of wood and paper.

Safety

Cases of propylene glycol poisoning are related to either inappropriate intravenous use or accidental ingestion by children. The oral toxicity of propylene glycol is very low. In one study, rats were provided with feed containing as much as 5% PG over a period of 104 weeks and they showed no apparent ill effects. Because of its low chronic oral toxicity, propylene glycol is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use as a direct food additive.

Serious toxicity will occur only at extremely high intakes over a relatively short period of time that results in plasma concentrations of over 4 g/L. Such levels of ingestion would not be possible when consuming reasonable amounts of a food product or dietary supplements containing at most 1 g/kg foodstuff.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined propylene glycol to be "generally recognized as safe" for use in food, cosmetics, and medicines. Like ethylene glycol, propylene glycol affects the body´s chemistry by increasing the amount of acid. Propylene glycol is metabolized into lactic acid, which occurs naturally as muscles are exercised, while ethylene glycol is metabolized into oxalic acid, which is toxic.

However, propylene glycol is not approved for use in cat food. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration have determined that propylene glycol in or on cat food has not been shown by adequate scientific data to be safe for use. Use of propylene glycol in or on cat food causes the feed to be adulterated and in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. 21CFR589.1001

Prolonged contact with propylene glycol is essentially non-irritating to the skin. Undiluted propylene glycol is minimally irritating to the eye, and can produce slight transient conjunctivitis (the eye recovers after the exposure is removed). Exposure to mists may cause eye irritation, as well as upper respiratory tract irritation. Inhalation of the propylene glycol vapors appears to present no significant hazard in ordinary applications. However, limited human experience indicates that inhalation of propylene glycol mists could be irritating to some individuals. Therefore inhalation exposure to mists of these materials should be avoided. Some research has suggested that propylene glycol not be used in applications where inhalation exposure or human eye contact with the spray mists of these materials is likely, such as fogs for theatrical productions or antifreeze solutions for emergency eye wash stations.

Propylene glycol does not cause sensitization and it shows no evidence of being a carcinogen or of being genotoxic.Post menopausal women who require the use of an estrogen cream may notice that brand name creams made with propylene glycol often create extreme, uncomfortable burning along the vulva and perianal area. In these cases, patients can request that a local compounding pharmacy make a "propylene glycol free" cream which is much more tolerable.

Research has suggested that individuals who cannot tolerate propylene glycol probably experience a special form of irritation, but that they only rarely develop allergic contact dermatitis. Other investigators believe that the incidence of allergic contact dermatitis to propylene glycol may be greater than 2% in patients with eczema.

Patients with vulvodynia and interstitial cystitis may be especially sensitive to propylene glycol. Women struggling with yeast infections may also notice that some OTC creams can cause intense burning.

 

MENTHA ARVENSIS LEAF EXTRACT

Mentha arvensis (Corn Mint) is a species of mint native to the temperate regions of Europe and western and central Asia, east to the Himalaya and eastern Siberia.

It is an herbaceous perennial plant growing to 10–60 cm (rarely to 100 cm) tall. The leaves are in opposite pairs, simple, 2–6.5 cm long and 1–2 cm broad, hairy, and with a coarsely serrated margin. The flowers are pale purple (occasionally white or pink.

 

 

 

Behentrimonium Chloride

 

 

also known as docosyltrimethylammonium chloride or BTAC-228, is an irritating, toxic, and slightly flammable yellow waxlike organic compound with chemical formula CH3(CH2)21N(Cl)(CH3)3 , used as an antistatic agent and a disinfectant. It is commonly found in cosmetics such as conditioners, hair dye, and mousse, and also in detergents. In water treatment, it acts as an algaecide.

 

 

Cetrimonium Chloride

 

 

Cetrimonium chloride is a topical antiseptic.

Cetrimonium bromide ((C16H33)N(CH3)3Br) is one of the components of the topical antiseptic cetrimide. The cetrimonium (or hexadecyltrimethylammmonium) cation is an effective antiseptic agent against bacteria and fungi.

It is a cationic surfactant. Its uses include providing a buffer solution for the extraction of DNA. It is also widely used in hair conditioning products.The closely related compounds cetrimonium chloride and cetrimonium stearate are also used as topic antiseptics, and may be found in many household products such as shampoos and cosmetics.

 

 

Hydrolyzed Keratin

Hydrolyzed Protein is protein that has been hydrolyzed or broken down into its component amino acids. While there are many means of achieving this, two of the most common are prolonged boiling in a strong acid or strong base or using an enzyme such as the pancreatic protease enzyme to stimulate the naturally-occurring hydrolytic process.

Hydrolysis is a chemical reaction or process in which a chemical compound is broken down by reaction with water.[1][2] This is the type of reaction that is used to break down polymers. Water is added in this reaction.

In organic chemistry, hydrolysis can be considered as the reverse or opposite of condensation, a reaction in which two molecular fragments are joined for each water molecule produced. As hydrolysis may be a reversible reaction, condensation and hydrolysis can take place at the same time, with the position of equilibrium determining the amount of each product.

 

 

Guar Hydroxyprpyl Trimonium Chloride

 

 

it is a chemical found in many popular shampoos like Organics or Head & Shoulders. It is a water-soluble quaternary derivative of natural guar gum, and imparts conditioning properties to shampoos and after-shampoo hair care products. The effects of the cationic charge density, guar concentration in aqueous solution, and treatment time on bleached European hair were studied. An Instron method developed by M.L. Garcia and J. Diaz (2) was successfully applied to determine the efficacy of cationic guars to improve the ease of combing. The results were confirmed in a shampoo formulation on both virgin and bleached hair.

 

 

.

 

Methylcloroisotiazolinone.

 

 

is a preservative with antibacterial and antifungal effects within the group of isothiazolinones. It is effective against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, yeast and fungi.

It is found in many water-based personal care products and cosmetics.[1] It is also used in glue production, detergents, paints, fuels and other industrial processes.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), does not list methylchloroisothiazolinone as a known, probable or possible human carcinogen[3], nor have in vivo tests found evidence of carcinogenic activity. Methylchloroisothiazolinone is an allergen(contact dermatitis)

 

 

Cyclopentasiloxane /Dimethiconol /Dimethicone Crosspolyme

 

 

as a conclusion all thouses ingredients above are silicone base:

Silicones are largely inert compounds with a wide variety of forms and uses. Typically heat-resistant, nonstick and rubberlike, they are frequently used in cookware, medical applications, sealants, lubricants and insulation.

 

 

Cyclopentasiloxane

 

 

is a silicone fluid commonly used in cosmetics such as deodorants, sunblocks and hair sprays. It is becoming more common in hair conditioners, as it makes the hair easier to brush without breakage. It is also used as part of silicone based personal lubricants.However,if you use to much on your skin it can stay in your body tissue for over 5 years. Cyclopentasiloxane is an emollient

 

 

Dimethiconol

 

COSMETIC FLUIDS are silicone compounds containing various combinations of elastomers in a variety of diluents. These products vary in viscosity, volatility, feel, shine, lubricity, and water resistance.

Grades of COSMETIC FLUIDS are based on solids, diluents, and elastomer derivatives. These variations give a wide range of characteristics when formulating products.

COSMETIC FLUIDS have become a popular additive to hair shine products including serums, gels, micro-emulsions, and refractive index based products. They can also be used as excellent lubricants due to their "non-greasy feel”. They perform well in conditioners, sun products, anti-perspirants, cremes, and lotions.

also provides specialty COSMETIC FLUIDS that can be used as silicone delivery systems for active ingredients including Retinol, analgesics, and sunscreens without a greasy afterfeel.

 

Cyclopentasiloxane /Dimethiconol /Dimethicone Crosspolymer

Silicone Elastomer Blend is a mixture of a high molecular weight silicone elastomer (dimethicone crosspolymer) in cyclomethicone (D4 < href="http://www.blogger.com/wiki/Triglyceride">triglycerides. It can also be obtained from the hydrogenation of some unsaturated vegetable oils. Common stearic acid is actually a mix of stearic acid and palmitic acid, although purified stearic acid is available separately.

Uses

Esters are a class of chemical compounds and functional groups. Esters consist of an inorganic or organic acid in which at least one -OH (hydroxy) group is replaced by an -O-alkyl (alkoxy) group. The most common type of esters are carboxylic acid esters (R1-C(=O)-O-R2); other esters include phosphoric acid, sulfuric acid, nitric acid, and boric acid esters. Volatile esters often have a smell and are found in perfumes, essential oils, and pheromones, and give many fruits their scent. Ethyl acetate and methyl acetate are important solvents; fatty acid esters form fat and lipids; and polyesters are important plastics. Cyclic esters are called lactones. The name "ester" is derived from the German Essig-Äther (literally: vinegar ether), an old name for ethyl acetate. Esters can be synthesized in a condensation reaction between an acid and an alcohol in a reaction known as esterification.

Ether is a class of chemical compounds which contain an ether group — an oxygen atom connected to two (substituted) alkyl or aryl groups — of general formula R–O–R´.[1] A typical example is the solvent and anesthetic diethyl ether, commonly referred to simply as "ether" (ethoxyethane, CH3-CH2-O-CH2-CH3)

 

 

THE FOLLOWING ETHERS ARE COMMON USE ON COSMETICS

PPG-2 BUTYL ETHER

 

 

The Polypropylene Glycol (PPG) Stearyl Ethers are polypropylene ethers of stearyl ether that function as skin-conditioning agent in cosmetic formulations.

PPG-2 Butyl Ether vapor was nontoxic by the inhalation route. Undiluted PPG-15 Stearyl Ether was practically nonirritating to the eyes of rabbits, and PPG Butyl Ethers had minor to moderate conjunctival irritation, opacity, and iritis

PPG-2 Butyl Ether caused minor, transient erythema and desquamation during a 4-hour occlusive patch test. PPG-2 Butyl Ether did not irritate the skin of pregnant mice, was nontoxic to dams, and was not teratogenic.

These data were considered by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel to support the safety of PPG Stearyl Ethers at their current use concentrations (2% to 10%, but not greater than 25%). Data on the component ingredients, Propylene Glycol, PPG, and Steraryl Alcohol, from previous cosmetic ingredient safety assessments were also considered and found to support the safety of PPG Stearyl Ethers.

(PMID: 11800052 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE])

Poly (ethylene glycol) PEG

is produced by the interaction of ethylene oxide with water, ethylene glycol or ethylene glycol oligomers.[2] The reaction is catalyzed by acidic or basic catalysts. Ethylene glycol and its oligomers are preferable as a starting material instead of water, because it allows the creation of polymers with a low polydispersity (narrow molecular weight distribution). Polymer chain length depends on the ratio of reactants.

Depending on the catalyst type, the mechanism of polymerization can be cationic or anionic. The anionic mechanism is preferable because it allows one to obtain PEG with a low polydispersity. Polymerization of ethylene oxide is an exothermic process. Overheating or contaminating ethylene oxide with catalysts such as alkalis or metal oxides can lead to runaway polymerization which can end with an explosion after few hours.

Polyethylene oxide or high-molecular polyethylene glycol is synthesized by suspension polymerization. It is necessary to hold the growing polymer chain in solution in the course of the polycondensation process. The reaction is catalyzed by magnesium-, aluminium- or calcium-organoelement compounds. To prevent coagulation of polymer chains from solution, chelating additives such as dimethylglyoxime are used.

Alkali catalysts such as sodium hydroxide NaOH, potassium hydroxide KOH or sodium carbonate Na2CO3 are used to prepare low-molecular polyethylene glycol.

 

Clinical uses

Polyethylene glycol has a low toxicity[2] and is used in a variety of products. It is the basis of a number of laxatives (e.g. macrogol-containing products such as Movicol and polyethylene glycol 3350, or MiraLax or GlycoLax). It is the basis of many skin creams, as cetomacrogol, and sexual lubricants, frequently combined with glycerin. Whole bowel irrigation (polyethylene glycol with added electrolytes) is used for bowel preparation before surgery or colonoscopy and drug overdoses. It is sold under the brand names GoLYTELY, GlycoLax, Fortrans, TriLyte, and Colyte. When attached to various protein medications, polyethylene glycol allows a slowed clearance of the carried protein from the blood. This makes for a longer acting medicinal effect and reduces toxicity, and it allows longer dosing intervals. Examples include PEG-interferon alpha which is used to treat hepatitis C and PEG-filgrastim (Neulasta®) which is used to treat neutropenia. It has been shown that polyethylene glycol can improve healing of spinal injuries in dogs.[3] One of the earlier findings that polyethylene glycol can aid in nerve repair came from the University of Texas (Krause and Bittner).[4] Polyethylene glycol is commonly used to fuse B-cells with myeloma cells in monoclonal antibody production. PEG has recently been proved to give better results in constipation patients than tegaserod.[5]

PEG is being used in the repair of motor neurons damaged in crush or laceration incidence in vivo and in vitro. When coupled with melatonin, 75% of damaged sciatic nerves were rendered viable

 

PEG is used in a number of toothpastes as a dispersant; it binds water and helps keep gum uniform throughout the toothpaste. It is also under investigation for use in body armor[9] and tattoos to monitor diabetes.[10] Functional groups of PEG give polyurethane elastomers their "rubberiness", for applications such as foams (foam rubber) and fibers (spandex). Its backbone structure is analogous to that of silicone, another elastomers their "rubberiness", for applications such as foams (foam rubber) and fibers (spandex). Its backbone structure is analogous to that of silicone, another elastomer.

 

Elastomers, the science …

Elastomers are a polymer with the property of elasticity. The term, which is derived from elastic polymer, is often used interchangeably with the term rubber, and is preferred when referring to vulcanisates. Each of the monomers which link to form the polymer is usually made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and/or silicon. Elastomers are amorphous polymers existing above their glass transition temperature, so that considerable segmental motion is possible. At ambient temperatures rubbers are thus relatively soft (E~3MPa) and deformable. Their primary uses are for seals, adhesives and molded flexible parts.

A is a schematic drawing of an unstressed polymer. The dots represent cross-links. B is the same polymer under stress. When the stress is removed, it will return to the A configuration

Elastomers are usually thermo sets (requiring vulcanization) but may also be thermoplastic (see thermoplastic elastomer). The long polymer chains cross-link during curing. The molecular structure of elastomers can be imagined as a ´spaghetti and meatball´ structure, with the meatballs signifying cross-links. The elasticity is derived from the ability of the long chains to reconfigure themselves to distribute an applied stress. The covalent cross-linkages ensure that the elastomer will return to its original configuration when the stress is removed. As a result of this extreme flexibility, elastomers can reversibly extend from 5-700%, depending on the specific material. Without the cross-linkages or with short, uneasily reconfigured chains, the applied stress would result in a permanent deformation.

Temperature effects are also present in the demonstrated elasticity of a polymer.

Elastomers that have cooled to a glassy or crystalline phase will have less mobile chains, and consequentially less elasticity, than those manipulated at temperatures higher than the glass transition temperature of the polymer.

It is also possible for a polymer to exhibit elasticity that is not due to covalent cross-links, but instead for thermodynamic reasons.

Thermosetting plastics (thermo sets) are polymer materials that cure, through the addition of energy, to a stronger form. The energy may be in the form of heat (generally above 200 degrees Celsius), through a chemical reaction (two-part epoxy, for example), or irradiation.

Thermoses materials are usually liquid or malleable prior to curing, and designed to be molded into their final form, or used as adhesives.

The curing process transforms the resin into a plastic or rubber by a cross-linking process. Energy and/or catalysts are added that cause the molecular chains to react at chemically active sites (unsaturated or epoxy sites, for example), linking into a rigid, 3-D structure. The cross-linking process forms a molecule with a larger

Molecular weight, resulting in a material with a higher melting point. During the reaction, when the molecular weight has increased to a point so that the melting point is higher than the surrounding ambient temperature, the material forms into a solid material. Subsequent uncontrolled reheating of the material results in reaching the decomposition temperature before the melting point is obtained. A thermo set material cannot be melted and re-shaped after it is cured.

Thermo set materials are generally stronger than thermoplastic materials due to this 3-D network of bonds, and are also better suited to high-temperature applications up to the decomposition temperature of the material. They do not lend themselves to recycling like thermoplastics, which can be melted and re-molded.

Some examples of thermo sets are:

Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE), for example Hytrel®, etc. Thermoplastic Vulcanizates (TPV), for example Santoprene® TPV Polyurethane rubber the proteins resilin and ELASTIN

 

ELASTIN

Cells in the epidermis contain a structural matrix of keratin which makes this outermost layer of the skin almost waterproof, and along with collagen and elastin, gives skin its strength. Rubbing and pressure cause keratin to proliferate with the formation of protective calluses — useful for athletes and on the fingertips of musicians who play stringed instruments. Keratinized epidermal cells are constantly shed and replaced

Keratins are a family of fibrous structural proteins; tough and insoluble, they form the hard but no mineralized structures found in reptiles, birds, amphibians and mammals. They are rivaled as biological materials in toughness only by chitin.

There are various types of keratins within a single animal,the α-keratins in the hair (including wool), horns, nails, claws and hooves of mammals[

Alcohol Anonymousor "of sheep, whale sperm and coconut meat"

 

 

By James Whittall

MenEssentials PresidentPublished November 2004

 

For too many men´s skin care aficionados, the word "alcohol" evokes something akin to ideological partisanship.

Alcohol, I often hear argued, is part of an axis of evil that includes surfactants, waxes, fillers, and celebrity fragrances.

Alcohol dries the skin. It irritates freshly shaven faces. According to one massively idiotic yet widely quoted "Consumer Dictionary," cosmetic alcohol is a poisonous petroleum-derived elixir that causes headaches, flushing, dizziness, mental depression, nausea, vomiting, narcosis, coma, and projectile flatulence. Wow.

Given everything we think we know about alcohol in cosmetics, it´s a wonder our fathers survived their Aqua Velva years without slipping into a collective toxic-shock induced stupor.

In fact, cosmetic alcohol is not a single ingredient but many. These highly specialized chemicals aren´t the twisted spawn of evil-doers but instead perform different functions and affect the skin in different ways – most often with surprisingly beneficial results.

Also in fact, the so-called "alcohol-free" products sitting on your shelf right now very likely contain some anonymous form of alcohol. And if you find that shocking (gasp), you´ll be doubly surprised to learn that a few more of your most cherished beliefs about alcohol are probably wrong.

Rosacea- face & scalp

 

 

 

Rosacea is a common, non-contagious inflammatory skin condition which is found on the face and appears as red, flushed skin. It kind of looks like you´re blushing... all the time. It is often mistaken for Eczema, Acne or a skin allergy. The severity of the condition differs from person to person. Rosacea is quite a complex condition which is why it can be broken down into 4 subtypes (with long scientific names)Subtypes of Rosacea

1.Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea - Persistent redness and visible blood vessels

2.Papulopustular Rosacea - Same as above but with tiny acne-like bumps

3.Phymatous Rosacea - Same as above but with thickened skin causing an enlargement of the nose

4.Ocular Rosacea - Same as above with eye irritations such as dry eye, tearing and burning

 

So what causes Rosacea?

 

No set cause for Rosacea has been found. It is believed by many dermatologists and researchers that there are various triggers that may prompt Rosacea to develop or, in some cases, worsen. These triggers differ among Rosacea sufferers. We recommend to our customers to try and identify what is triggering their Rosacea as this will make it easier to determine how to best treat it. It is also worth noting that what may work for one person may not work for another. Resting or altering a treatment is also advised as some sufferers find their symptoms may build up a resistance to a particular treatment. According to dermatologists and researchers, the 5 key triggers of Rosacea are:

1.Demodex Mites

2.Blood vessel abnormalities

3.Helicobacter Pylori

4.Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

5.Leaky Gut Syndrome

 

1. Demodectic Rosacea

 

 

 

 

Demodex Mites

 

Demodex Mites are microscopic creatures that inhabit the pores of the skin. You can´t see them with the naked eye and they live harmlessly on most people. Yes, this made us cringe too! It has been found that Rosacea sufferers have a higher density of these mites on their skin than those without Rosacea, as seen in the study The Demodex Mite Population in Rosacea. It is believed this higher density of mites may lead to or worsen the condition. On the other hand, some people believe it isn´t the actual number of mites, but rather the bacteria released when they die that causes Rosacea. Yucky, yes we know but all the more reason to get rid of them, right?! The study Mite-related bacterial antigens stimulate inflammatory cells in Rosacea found this bacteria has "the potential to stimulate an inflammatory response in patients with papulopustular Rosacea." Another interesting point to note is that Rosacea tends to flare up during heat and humidity, conditions in which these mites thrive.

 

Treatments

 

In order to help treat Demodectic Rosacea, one must manage the Mite population on the skin and also soothe the inflammation caused. There are a number of ways to do this:

 

Tea Tree Oil

 

Tea Tree Oil

 

 

Tea Tree Leaf

 

Some studies such as this one have found that tea tree oil may help kill off Demodex Mites. The problem though is that Tea Tree Oil is required to be at least 50% concentration. This can be irritating on the skin and may potentially burn the skin.

 

Anti-Demodex Medication

 

Medication is often prescribed to Rosacea sufferers which helps stop the mites from spreading and moving around the skin. The anti-parasitic medication Invermectin is one example that is commonly used to treat worms in dogs and other animal parasites. While it is often effective, there are some side effects such as possible neurotoxity which damages the nervous tissue. Additionally, this medication is not suitable to use during pregnancy, breast feeding or for children under 5 (as advised by your doctor).

 

Olive Leaf

 

 

Olive Leaf

 

Olive Leaf

 

Olive leaf extract is taken in capsule form and acts in the same way that antibiotics do. It is very strong which means dosages must not be tampered with. There isn´t a lot of research into this treatment unfortunately.

 

Fish Oil and Vitamin E

 

The Omega-3 fatty acids found in Fish Oil have strong anti-inflammatory properties which help soothe the inflammation caused by Demodectic Rosacea. Vitamin E is effective in repairing damaged skin and helps reduce the redness caused by this condition.

 

Whilst both of these may help soothe the symptoms of Demodectic Rosacea, neither of them do anything about the mite population on the skin which causes the condition to flare up in the first place.

 

MooGoo Demodex Rosacea Powder

 

We at MooGoo have spent a long time trying to develop something natural to help treat Demodectic Rosacea. We have formulated a special powder and licensed it as a medical device to do just this. Basically, this powder works to create an environment on the skin that irritates the mites and absorbs excess sebum which they need to survive. Our customers who have given it a try have had excellent results so far. :) You can read more about this product here.

 

2. Blood Vessel Abnormalities

 

Abnormalities in the blood vessels of the face play a role in the development of Rosacea as it causes persistent redness and enlarged blood vessels. What causes the blood vessels to inflame and swell is unknown.

 

It has been shown in the past that a relationship exists between gut problems and skin conditions, such as Rosacea. The following 3 Rosacea triggers are all related to a gut condition.

 

3. Helicobacter Pylori

Artistic Impression of Helicobacter Pylori

 

 

Helicobacter Pylori (Hp) is a common bacterial infection that affects the lining of the stomach and causes inflammation and stomach ulcers. It affects over 30% of the world´s population, according to the Centre for Digestive Diseases. Hp may also lead to an increase of Nitrous Oxide (NO) in the blood and tissue which, along with the inflammatory symptoms, is believed to cause a range of other conditions, including Rosacea. The bacteria may also prompt a protein known as bradykinnin to develop which may trigger the expansion of blood vessels (a common characteristic of Rosacea). The study The Link between Helicobacter Pylori Infection and Rosacea found, "Rosacea could be considered as one of the extragastric symptoms of Hp infection."

 

 

Treatments

 

The first step to treat Rosacea caused by Hp bacteria is to eliminate the bacteria itself and soothe the associated inflammation. This can be done using:

 

Oral Antibiotics

 

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed for Hp infections. However, if antibiotics are taken too much, the bacteria may become resistant to their effects which force you to take higher or stronger dosages.

 

Natural Supplements

 

A number of natural supplements have been found to kill off Hp bacteria and soothe the inflammation. These include (but are not limited to):

 

1. Monolaurin

 

Monolaurin is derived from coconut oil and, interestingly, is also found in human breast milk. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties which help soothe the symptoms of Hp. It is taken in capsule form and a number of studies have found it is effective in killing off the bacteria. Some examples include:

 

Bacterial effects of fatty acids and momoglycerides

Minimum Inhibitory concentrations of herbal essential oils and Monolaurin of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria

 

Monolaurin is derived from Coconut Oil

 

 

Monolaurin is derived from Coconut Oil

 

2. Mastic Gum

 

Mastic Gum is derived from the mastic tree and acts as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal supplement that has been found by some studies to kill off Hp bacteria such as:

 

The effect of mastic gum on Helicobacter Pylori: A randomized pilot study

Bacterial Activity of Pistacia lentiscus Mastic Gum against Helicobacter Pylori

 

3. L Glutamine

 

L Glutamine is an amino acid that´s found in high levels throughout the body. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and is essential for the proper fucntion of the immune system. It is often taken as a supplement to heal any damage and inflammation caused by Hp. This article goes into this a bit deeper and one study that examines the efectiveness of the amino acid in soothing inflammation is Why is L-Glutamine important to cells of the immune system in health, post injury, surgery and infection?

What Makes KERAPURE™ the Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment for You?

 

KERAPURE™ products are a safe alternative to other professional keratin hair straightening treatments, like the Brazilian-style keratin treatments. Other keratin hair straightening treatments are popular because of their dramatic results; after each hair straightening treatment, hair remains smooth and sleek for weeks at a time. However, in addition to hair smoothing results, recent testing and laboratory results for other keratin hair straightening treatments have given beauty aficionados and stylists alike a reason to cry out.

 

When Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments initially became popular, they provided styling, straightening and smoothing results never before possible for certain hair types; these hair straightening treatments revolutionized the hair care industry. However, as advanced research and prolonged testing has been conducted on Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments over the years, results reveal that the majority of these products emit toxic levels of formaldehyde. In most Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments and products formaldehyde is an active ingredient in straightening the hair. While several keratin hair straightening treatments claim their products are formaldehyde-free, they actually contain formaldehyde-donor ingredients that emit toxic levels of formaldehyde gas when exposed to heat (as in varying stages of any multi-process hair styling or smoothing treatment). As such, many Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments and products also fail to meet safety and compliance regulations of several international, national and state-level agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA), Center for Disease Control (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These published results can be found here.

 

How is KERAPURE™ different from other keratin hair straightening treatments and products?

 

We have spent years researching and developing alternative ingredients and have discovered a unique 4-in-1 formula that combines gold peptides, safe keratin proteins, cross-linked amino acids and exotic oils, which mimics the results of any other hair straightening treatment or product, without any of the associated risks for stylists or clients. In Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments and products the active hair straightening ingredient is formaldehyde, or a formaldehyde donor.

 

The KERAPURE™ system uses a non-toxic safe keratin amino acid-based smoothing treatment that penetrates through the hair cuticle to restructure and rebuild individual strands, leaving your hair manageable, flexible, glossy, and smooth. Additionally, KERAPURE™ vapors released by our products and salon keratin hair straightening treatments have been tested by independent laboratories in enclosed environments and actual salon environments to reveal that there are no toxic levels of formaldehyde released at any point throughout the process. Our test results show a less than 0.06 ppm reading of formaldehyde content – more than 8 times below the formaldehyde inhalation action limit (below the lowest readable level).*

 

Because of our commitment to safe, beautiful hair care, KERAPURE™ is OSHA, FDA, EPA and CDC compliant. These national, international, and state authorities have previously established guidelines and regulations protecting consumers from exposure to harmful chemicals in other Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments, such as formaldehyde. KERAPURE™ is manufactured by a FDA-registered Over-the-Counter Drug and Medical Device manufacturer, ensuring that we are able to provide products that comply with the strictest safety and exposure guidelines. All KERAPURE™ products either meet or exceed all safety regulations and published exposure limits, even when exposed to heat styling both in the salon and while blowdrying or flat ironing at home.

 

The Science

 

KERAPURE™ synergizes keratin proteins, cross-links amino acids and gold peptides to penetrate through the hair cuticle, and temporarily breaking the hydrogen and salt bonds. This process uses the cysteine bonds already in the hair to form new covalent unions with our unique polypeptides that help to straighten and smooth hair. KERAPURE™ products create a unique keratin hair straightening treatment that enhances shine, glossiness, manageability, condition, and strength for all hair types.

 

This safe keratin and amino acid-based smoothing and hair straightening treatment is a safe and scientifically advanced alternative to Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments that contain dangerous formaldehyde-emitting ingredients at toxic levels.

 

Who We Are

 

KERAPURE™ is committed to providing safe, beautiful results for consumers and professionals alike. We believe Safe Keratin treatments, without the harmful, toxic chemicals and the dangerous side effects of exposure to formaldehyde, can revolutionize hair care while protecting stylists and clients. KERAPURE™ is the SAFE way to smooth.

*The indoor and outdoor air we breathe regularly contains some formaldehyde naturally, and we are all exposed to very low levels of formaldehyde fumes as a result. Passive monitoring devices are unable to detect below 0.06ppm, making it impossible for any product tested using this mechanism to give a 0.00ppm reading.

New hair thermal re alignment-glycols

How Thermal Reconditioning Works

 

This glycolic acid-derivative, which is traditionally used to perm hair, is relatively mild compared with the chemicals in conventional straighteners, leaving the hair softened and ready to permanently straighten. It can also now be used on African American hair that is virgin hair and has no previous chemical treatment. Then, instead of a traditional blow dry, hair is clamped between small irons and heated as high as 356 degrees (or higher in some cases) Fahrenheit to realign the bonds in stick-straight formation. This is the thermal part of Thermal Reconditioning. Despite it´s strong chemicals, the process can be less damaging than regular, strenuous, blow-drying, according to experts.

 

Keratin is a type of protein high in the amino acid "Cystine.” This special amino acid is what makes hair super tough and extremely elastic. Scientists refer to Keratin as a "Biopolymer,” due to its unique structures and interesting properties. Biopolymers are found throughout nature and give form and structure to naturally occurring substances all around the world; everything from leaves to trees, and turtle shells to goose down.

Anevolve, formaldehyde-free straightening

Stage 1: Straighten the Hair Safely and Efficiently

 

The curl pattern or characteristic shape of hair is due to the fact that different parts of the hair have different protein levels, making it a virtual patchwork of harder and softer "bridge” areas. Control Zero straightener uses an edible food grade active ingredient to open the disulfide bridge that gives the hair its characteristic shape, allowing it to be styled or straightened. Other chemicals have been used in the past to do this job, ranging from thioglycolates (which smell like cat urine) to formaldehyde (which is banned in many parts of the world because it is environmentally harmful and a known carcinogen). There are no paraben preservatives in Control Zero. We use a highly effective yogurt based enzyme instead.

 

Stage 2: Repair Any Damage to the Hair

 

No matter how the straightening is done, when the cuticles of the hair (which encase the long keratin strands) reform after straightening, the infrastructure has been weakened by the broken disulfide. Laboratory tests have shown that after a lye "relaxing” treatment, hair strength is only 20% of what it was before the treatment and after a formaldehyde treatment hair is only 75% of its pre-treatment, strength. The multi-Cynectin keratin protein blend used in Control Zero Masque -- an integral part of the Control Zero system -- has been laboratory proven to restore hair to its pre-treatment strength. In many cases, where hair has been compromised by overtreatment in the past, the hair is left "better than new".

 

 

Stage 3: Leave the Hair Better than New!

http://www.anevolve.com/pdf/faq.pdf   questions 

 

 

SMOOTHED vs STRAIGHTENED

 

SMOOTHING IS NOT HAIR STRAIGHTENING because the underlying structure of the hair remains unchanged. SMOOTHING CHEMISTRY is a process in which positively charged molecules called "cationic surfactants" (they have an extra proton, making them positively charged) are allowed to attach themselves to the negatively charged keratins that form the hair cuticle (a high percentage of those negatively charged proteins are actually sticking out, like the spines on a cactus). Smoothing surfactants have two parts, one that loves water (hydrophilic) and another oily part that hates it (hydrophobic). The water loving part attaches to the hair, while the oily ends "stick out" and that is what gives the hair its smoothness and weight. It lasts only until it is washed out with the detergents (the surfactants in shampoo). The best keratins, like those used in Cynectin, will benefit the hair, but they will not keep it straight without breaking the disulfide bonds first.

 

 

Control Zero Masque acidity "protonates" the hair and adds more hydrogen bonds between the keratins in the hair. Other products often use oily surfactants to "glue" frizz and split ends together for a washing or two.

 

Rebuilding Bridges

 

While we know that the curliness or straightness of hair depends on the shape of the hair bulb in the skin, the stability of that shape – the reason it stays curly or straight – is caused by a chemical bond in the protein cysteine, often called the disulfide bridge. These bridges make the hair stable and the geometric shape (the helix) is angled depending upon bonds between the amino acids. These bridges make the hair stable and the curliness or straightness depends upon them.

 

Hair proteins are stretched when the bridges are broken and can be reshaped because the bonds that hold them together in the shafts of the hair have been broken (also called, reduced), When the breaking process ends after styling, new disulfide bridges are formed between the neighboring cysteine proteins. It is good to wait a day or two before wetting the hair by washing, because bridge building take some time. That is real straightening and not just smoothing.

 

How to break the bonds is the key question

 

The reducing agent used in so-called Brazilian keratin treatments is formaldehyde (often mislabeled in the US under a variety of names). It is very effective and doesn’t smell much, but it is an environmental hazard and has been proven to cause cancer. It is forbidden in most of the world in quantities large enough to be effective for bridge breaking. Another popular chemical are the "thios” which are used in traditional permanent waves, but which smell terrible because of the large amount of sulfur they contain and release. Control Zero´s reducing agent is so safe that you could eat it safely!

 


The information that follows has been written with an eye toward those stylists, salon owners and consumers who want to get more facts about Anevolve, formaldehyde-free straightening using Control Zero, the composition of Cynectin brand proteins and updates about the controversy involving the mislabeling of so-called "Brazilian” keratin products.

The safe transition back to beautiful, healthy hair is our goal.

The Anevolve approach to hair care is that each of our products is part of a system designed to make hair beautiful, healthy and manageable. We believe that healthy hair is by definition strong, vibrant, and beautiful, and that this definition applies as much to the hair of seniors as it does to that of children.

The primary keratin structure in hair is called alpha-keratin. More than 25 variations of alpha-keratin are found in human cells. The main protein in the
                                                                                     hair (about 20%) is cysteine.

 

Long strands of keratin form a thicker coil with the alpha-keratin stands braided together, giving hair its long structure.

The coils are twisted around each other and make long braided filaments (the same way that rope is made). 

Hair also gets strength from interactions between the strands. Alpha-keratin polypeptides form strong disulfide bonds or bridges. Control Zero Straightening Gel gently breaks these disulfide bonds. The hair is then styled (straightened or curled) and the bonds slowly reform as the Cynectin Keratin Protein Essence Masque strengthens, beautifies and revitalizes the newly restyled strands.

Cynectin™ is a blend of keratin proteins from a variety of natural sources that are especially rich in cysteine and have the same long fibrous structure that you see in the hair images above. In fact, Cynectin proteins are almost identical to those found in your hair.

BKT treatments that claim to contain keratin often use only what are called "hydrolyzed” keratins, usually treated cow hooves, feathers or other slaughterhouse waste. While the application of wool-based hydrolyzed keratin to hair has proven to be beneficial, production reduces the proteins to a kind of un-natural "confetti”, far less effective than the newly developed long filament strands (intermediate filament proteins) and vegetable proteins which characterize Cynectin. Proteins from a wide variety of natural sources make up Cynectin, and all of them are derived from organic materials. No animal is ever harmed in the production of Cynectin, which is guaranteed to be both the world’s finest multi-protein keratin and CRUELTY FREE.
