We transform proteins into value
Keratin is a cysteine-rich protein that can be extracted from low cost, renewable and abundant raw wools. We obtain keratin and engineer it in cutting-edge scaffold (gel, sponges, nanofibers, nanoparticles, film, etc.) to produce high-end cosmetics, advanced medications and medical devices.
Our high molecular weight water-soluble keratin preserves chemical and biological properties of the native protein and is natural, biocompatible and biological effectiveness.
Keratin has high similarity with the skin protein, biocompatibility, biodegradability and anti-inflammatory, and wound-healing properties. In its primary structure, there are cell-binding motifs such as leucine-aspartic acid-valine (LDV) and glutamic acid-aspartic acid-serine (EDS) residues capable of supporting cellular attachment and proliferation.
