Lysine refers to L-lysine, a proteinogenic amino acid belonging to the group of basic α amino acids or hexone bases. Lysine has two basic primary amino groups, one in alpha position to the carboxy group and a second in the epsilon position of the side chain.

Lysine acts as an antistatic agent (reduces static electricity by neutralizing the electrical charge on the surface of e.g. hair), hair conditioner (makes hair easy to comb, smooth, soft and shiny and gives it volume) and skin care product.
