It is commonly used in hair and skincare products due to its ability to improve the strength, elasticity, and hydration of hair and skin. Hydrolyzed animal keratin can also be used in food products as a source of protein and to enhance the texture, stability, and flavor of processed meats and snacks. It is a versatile ingredient that provides numerous benefits and applications in various industries.
