A profitable market
The global market is expected to grow to $42.4 billion by 2018. It is then perfectly understandable that many manufacturers are trying to enter this new profitable market. The most advanced countries for these products are US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Japan.
As consumers continue to embrace the concept of healthy aging and good-looking, products are formulated to address concerns such as skin health, a youthful appearance and weight control.
Important active ingredients in these beauty products include antioxidants and collagen peptides. Many products contain ingredients that are meant to improve the appearance of skin hydration, mask the appearance of aging and help with the appearance of skin renewal. However, the number of human clinical trials that have evaluated the efficiency of these active ingredients is limited. Only few serious brands decided to include certifications and tests results to their products, arguing they consider it as a competitive advantage in such a market.
Means of consumption
Beverages and yogurts are viewed as a good application format, but supplements are the easiest way to deliver a full dose of the active ingredients necessary to see results. Supplements look like medicine which 'legitimates' the health improvement effects of nutria-ingredients delivered through this means.
