What is a "hydrolysate?" A hydrolysate is a product of hydrolysis. Hydrolysis is a scientific/ chemical process by which a substance is broken down typically using an acid or water. A Hydrolysate of a protein (like wheat, oat, silk etc..) has special applications in personal care products since it allows the product, with the hydrolysate added, to absorb more quickly in to hair or skin. The hydrolysate contains certain amino acids from whichever protein used and those will be absorbed more rapidly than the intact proteins by the outermost keratin (protein) layer of skin or hair, thus maximizing nutrient delivery to the intended place. The amino acids will also bond with the keratin layer to create a barrier, assisting in moisture retention. So if you are making a hair care product with a protein hydrolysate, the amino acids will be absorbed more quickly and be more beneficial.
