Introducing kerabead™ technology for hair care products
Kerabead™ microcapsules are a
unique new technology made with real
keratin that rebuilds healthy hair
structure naturally. Kerabead products
give hair manageability and shine
without buildup, and they feel amazing.
Only kerabeads give all-day softness
and control, reactivating whenever hair
is combed or brushed. Tiny and flexible,
kerabead capsules slowly feed hair
actives like shea butter and argan from
a proprietary natural polymer complex.
Kerabeads are too tiny to see, each
only microns across. They naturally
distribute over hair and nestle into
crevices, instantly smoothing it and
restoring a healthy, glossy shine and
remarkable, touchable softness.
Kerabeads naturally go where they are
needed most, and are the first
microcapsule that actually targets
damage to repair hair structure. The
tiny keratin packages flow into rough
areas and split ends, instantaneously
sealing and restoring hair structure to a
luxurious smoothness. Kerabead Shea,
Argan, Mango butter, and silicone
encaps are ideal for all hair products.

Before
After
Fluorescent-labeled kerabeads
spontaneously repair a split end.
Long lasting repair of split ends by kerabead™ products
Before treatment, hair samples
show severe splitting, with single
and multiple branch patterns due
to heat and chemical processing
and mechanical stress.
Hair is repaired almost instantly on
contact with kerabead
encapsulates, which preferentially
flow into split areas. The keratin
complex integrates with the matrix
of the hair shaft while benefit oils
are released, smoothing the hair
surface and “sealing” the repair.
Repairs are long-lasting. Even after
36 hours in soapy water and hot air
drying, the end of the hair shaft
remains sealed and whole. A slight
visible seam remains under higher
magnification, but the split end is
fully repaired.
