According to market data available from Kline Group – which closely tracks the market for beauty-from-within-products – the global market for nutricosmetics was worth $1.5bn in 2007, and is expected to grow to $2.5bn by 2012.
Europe and Japan currently lead the global market for these products, accounting for 55% and 41% of sales, while the US holds only 3% of the market. Factors influencing this growth include an aging population, increased consumer awareness, societal and environmental factors, a rise of the ‚spa culture‘ and a shift towards less invasive beauty procedures.
