Phytokeratin: Ingredient Spotlight.

Keratin is a sulphur-rich fibrous protein that forms the outermost layers of the epidermis and the appendages (nails, hair, and fur). Generally, the keratin used in cosmetics is of animal origin. At Typology, we have chosen to opt for a plant-based alternative: phytokeratin, referred to as Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein or Hydrolyzed Sweet Almond Protein on I.N.C.I. lists.

This refers to a fine beige powder composed of hydrolysed wheat or almond proteins,meaning they are broken down into smaller proteins that will thus have better penetration and interaction at the surface of the skin, hair, and nails. Phytokeratin is obtained through an enzymatic process.

Your opinions on our skincare treatments containing phytokeratin.

Margaux (20/02/2019): "After years of applying semi-permanent varnish to my nails, they have become completely dry and damaged. Therefore, I wanted to test this product and now I apply it regularly to my nails. I have observed that they are revitalised and strengthened again! The bonus: the format. It's so cute. I carry it around in my bag every day."

Lea C. (09/03/2019): "A very good product to add to any hand cream. Just use it for a few evenings and your hands will recover!"

Guillaume D. (24/01/2020): "After purchasing this skincare product, the resilience and appearance of my nails have improved. I am pleased with my choice."

Delphine L. (19/05/2022) : "Brilliant product! My nails were soft, split and brittle. In a short time of application, they have become firmer. "

Users of the Hand & Nail Serum have observed an improvement in the quality of their nails, with enhanced resilience. In addition to the beneficial effects on the nails, this serum hydrates dry and damaged hands.

Julie P. (15/12/2021): "I have been suffering from dandruff and an itchy scalp for years. I have never really been able to find a shampoo that solves the problem. And now, miracle! In just 2 shampoos, the problem is completely solved with a very clean composition! I can't believe it."

Sereno G. (11/01/2022): "My flakes have disappeared! There's no need to apply a lot to the hair. The equivalent of a teaspoon is more than enough."

Lilian L. (26/01/2022)) " For a long time, I had been searching for an effective anti-dandruff shampoo that was free from chemicals. I have finally found it! My dry dandruff, scalp itchiness...: everything disappeared in no time! "

Alexandra H. (11/03/2022): "Incredible shampoo! By the 2nd shampoo, I no longer had dandruff, even though it was persistent."

Reviews on this shampoo prove its formidable effectiveness against dandruff. It soothes scalp irritations and itchiness, and combats dandruff.

Valérie J. (18/12/2021): "This shampoo is very good, my hair is shiny and flexible!"

Riveslange C. (19/11/2021): "Pleasant application, gives a bit more volume and a certain movement to my straight hair."

Patricia M. (28/12/2021): "I have a very sensitive scalp (psoriasis, dermatitis) and no reaction with this shampoo! Brilliant."

Marion M. (27/04/2022) : " I have fine hair and it really adds volume while moisturising. Great product with a clean composition. I've ordered it 3 times already."

In conclusion, the volumising shampoo enhances the hair. The phytokeratin helps to fill the gaps on the surface of the fibre, coats the hair in a protective film and smooths the cuticle. Fragile hair regains substance and shine, while damaged hair becomes more flexible and soft.

Marie-Astrif F. (16/12/2021): "I had rather damaged hair recently. It tended to tangle easily and become dull. This mask was the solution: intense hydration, shine, easy to style and a very pleasant smell! Pure delight."

Melissa G. (30/12/2021): "Soft and nourished hair without weighing it down."

Garance T. (07/03/2022): "I was delighted with the result. My hair was enhanced and became softer. I use it once a week."

Sarah M. (4/05/2022) : " I have thick, long hair, with particularly dry ends. This mask works wonders: not only does it repair my damaged ends, but it also restores an incredible shine and softness to my hair that it had lost over the past few years. While no hair treatment had ever convinced me enough to repurchase it, I have just reordered this one! "

This mask, enriched with phytokeratin, biomimetic ceramides and vegetable oils, restructures the hair fibre and fills in the hair's cuticles. The hair is repaired and enhanced.
