Beautiful! Leaves hair feeling and looking so much healthier and shiny
Real science. True beauty.
Virtue knows the world didn’t need another hair care company, so instead they set out to create a biotech company to repair hair. Harnessing the transformative powers of Alpha Keratin 60ku, Virtue have created a range of care, treatment and styling products that deliver immediate results while repairing damage and strengthening the hair over time.
Making up 90% of our hair, skin and nails, keratin is an important protein found in the human body. Until now, keratin was sourced from plant amino acids or animal byproducts.Initially discovered by scientists developing methods of treating traumatic injuries with keratin, Alpha Keratin 60ku is a form of the protein extracted from ethically-sourced human hair.
This breakthrough ingredient is able to be utilised more effectively by the body, and is drawn to areas of the hair cuticle where it is needed most. Strand by strand, damaged hair fibres are smoothed, resurfaced and cracks are filled in, leaving hair softer, shinier, smoother and healthier than before. Virtue founder Melisse Shaban and Chief Science Advisor Dr. Luke Burnett saw the incredible reparative effects this ingredient had on damaged hair, and set out to bring Virtue to life.
