Nutricosmetics Products – Part 1

SpecialChem / Vispi Kanga – Nov 5, 2007

'Nutracosmetics' are a new class of products in the health and beauty aids category. They incorporate nutraceutical ingredients in topical delivery systems with the elegance, skin feel and ancillary benefits of cosmetics. Nutracosmetics differ from cosmeceuticals in the origin of their functional ingredients. Nutricosmetics industry is about to take off big time, with major players such as L'Oreal and Proctor & Gamble expanding into beautifying dietary supplements, or "oral cosmetics". Nutricosmetics link nutrition with skin and body health. They enhance beauty from within using, vitamins, amino acids, proteins and botanical actives that offer antioxidant benefits. These products are innovative ingestible products that are marketed specifically for beauty benefits. They are often used together with high-performance topical treatments. Japan is by far and away the most developed market for nutriceuticals, although the Asia-Pacific region generally is an important market for these products.
