USHBC has ventured into the multi-billion dollar cosmetic market. For the past years, we have seen Asian cosmetics produced with all sorts of blueberry co-products. (skins, fiber, seed oil, extracts and even frozen and freeze dried blueberries).
Blueberry Guy recently visited the center of Natural Cosmetic innovation with a visit to the Cosme-Tech Exhibition in Tokyo Japan.
Cosmaceuticals. This is no longer a upstart trend — it is a multi billion dollar category. Although most companies in the exhibition were medium and small firms from all over Asia — the big multi national companies were on the prowl for new cosmaeeutical ideas. The category is now well over $15 billion annually and growing!
Beauty from Within. This is the fast-rising cagegory of digested foods that are good for skin, hair and nails. Smoothie mixes were everywhere and some were very specific with cosmaceutical claims.
