A more and more demanding beauty market

On the dynamic beauty industry, where global revenue is expected to reach US$7.5 billion by 2024[*], manufacturers face the constant challenge of adapting to innovations and scientific breakthrough. Combined with rising incomes, changing lifestyles and growing awareness of the growing body of science behind health and beauty, these factors are driving consumers today to look for evermore effective and non-invasive solutions. At Rousselot Health & Nutrition, we offer solid, science-backed answers to these demands.

Ingestible beauty products are on the rise

We know from many years of scientific research and experience, that beautiful skin and hair on the outside require a healthy foundation on the inside. Demand for ingestible beauty products, or nutricosmetics, is now rapidly spreading across the globe, as consumers gain more and more confidence in their proven benefits. Nutrition can influence our skin’s elasticity, firmness and moisture-binding capacity by optimizing levels of well-organized collagen fibers. 

Collagen and collagen peptides are this market’s star players

In the arena of ingestible beauty products, collagen has long been recognized as the star player. Research shows that collagen is now the leading functional ingredient of beauty products in all regions of the world. Collagen peptides, in particular, have proven skin beauty benefits, contributing to a healthier, younger-looking skin and hair.

Proven skin restructuring effects

Peptan is the world’s leading collagen peptides brand. Its beneficial effects on skin beauty have been demonstrated in double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical studies. These effects were published in an edition of the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology – the first ever publication of data to present skin restructuring effects as a result of the intake of a nutraceutical ingredient. A recent clinical study  revealed that the oral supplementation with Peptan collagen peptides significantly contributes to improving the overall appearance of skin and hair in an ethnically diverse population.

Credible science can help you succeed

Globally recognized as the preferred ingredient of leading nutri-cosmetic brands, Peptan collagen peptides are safe, bioactive, optimized to be easily digestible, highly bioavailable and effective in delivering specific benefits to skin tissue. Peptan is now benefiting from a notable increase in popularity in Western markets thanks to the growth of the nutricosmetics industry outside of Asia. The credible scientific research we produce at Rousselot Health & Nutrition provides nutricosmetic manufacturers with vital information when looking to create clear differentiation for their products in a competitive market place.
