Keratin is a natural protein extracted from the chicken feather. In the developed country, the usage of keratin in the personal care products is widely used. The personal care product produced from the keratin protein is conditioning shampoo, anti aging cream, facial cleanser and others.

Keratin solution, polyvinyl alcohol. Polyvinyl pyrrolidone, glutaraldehyde and ammonium thioglycollate was mixed intimately. The combination of the solution was then cast and hardened through a freezing-thawing process for 1 hour and this process was repeated up to 7 times to obtain a hydrogel. The related test was conducted to test the effectiveness of the wound healing product.
