After taking the ingredient list to the chemistry handbook(available to anyone), here's the bottom line:
Various forms of Propylene Glycol can mix with various forms of Formaldehyde to create various forms of polymers(plastics), including Nylon, Teflon.....
The Keratin may be trapped in the polymer, or may have some coating affect, but it has no ability to polymerize on it's own. The Keratin is NOT straightening the hair. All the individual ingredients are FDA approved for specific uses, but the combined product may not be.

The ingredient list is:
water, keratin, propylene glycol, cetearyl alcohol, cetrimonium chloride, formaldehyde, amodimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane & dimethicone, fragrance.

You can see that Formaldehyde is not at the bottom of the list. To determine the actual amount(which seems to be an issue), chemical analysis would need to be done. If the product is FDA approved, they should have proof, and have to by law, present the proof upon request.
The product puts a plastic around the hair shaft that suppoidly wears off in time. I'll try to post the Before/After pics when I get the time. There are serious issues with gas off when doing this procedure.

No one is going to know whether or not this is a good product until we see the reversion rate, and the condition of the hair after the product wears off. This is supposed to take 2-4 months. So, in 2-4 months, we can expect to hear the real story...until then, it's all hopeful thinking, possibly exciting new technology, conjecture and hype.
