NutricosmeticsThe benefits of dietary supplements for beauty
Nutricosmetics refers to dietary supplements and functional food that are taken orally to provide beauty benefits. The convergence of nutraceuticals and cosmetics, nutricosmetics has become a beauty ritual, a way to take care of one’s skin deeply and holistically.
Dietary supplements serving beauty
Nutricosmetic products are designed to improve skin, hair, and nails. Sales of these products are forecasted to reach between six and seven billion dollars in 2020, with Asia and Europe accounting for more than 50% of sales. The growth on a global scale is slightly greater than that of the global dietary supplement market. This trend is expected to continue in the coming years, particularly in the United States, which represents a region with high potential.
Among the key success factors in nutricosmetics, it is required to:
- Offer clinically studied active ingredients that quickly deliver visible results to consumers
- Promote a holistic approach to beauty by offering "Inside & Out" combinations of oral (dietary supplement) and topical (cosmetic) products for enhanced beauty benefits
Seppic’s beauty expertise
Our innovation laboratories have developed a large number of in vitro models targeting beauty benefits and cultivate various skin cells (keratinocytes, fibroblasts, adipocytes, melanocytes...) as well as tissues (epidermis, dermis...).
Seppic, therefore, offers several nutraceutical active ingredients for beauty skincare, including Ceramosides™ and Ceramosides™ HP
A beauty secret
The beauty and hydration of skin depend on essential lipids, the ceramides. As we age, the ceramide content of the skin declines, resulting in dryness and itching as well as tightness and wrinkles. The oral intake of phytoceramide encourages the regeneration of skin ceramides.
Ceramosides™ brings new ceramides to the skin via the bloodstream, helping restore the moisture barrier and fill in micro-wrinkles. The skin is moisturized and replenished.
