Anti-Aging preparations are a subset of the larger Skin Care market. Aging skin is attributed to exposure to the sun without the use of sunscreen, cigarette smoking, and lack of use of moisturizers to name a few. Antioxidants are common ingredients in anti-aging skin care products. Antioxidants are good for your skin and your health. Antioxidants are found in food and cosmetic products. Most plants have antioxidants which can counter “free radicals”, compounds that harm DNA inside of cells. Skin cells with free radicals can speed up aging which leads to wrinkles, dry skin, dark circles under the eyes, to name a few. Products with the most antioxidants have been shown to repair damage and slow the aging process.

TRENDS IN SKIN CARE
A prevalent and growing trend is the use of natural or organic active ingredients in skin care products. If your product follows the natural and organic trend, FMI is the right manufacturer to get your product to market. FMI is CCOF certified which means that we can ensure the integrity of your natural or organic product through the entire process of manufacturing and packaging. CCOF or California Certified Organic Farmers is one of the first organic certifying agencies and their organic certification standards were used as the foundation for the USDA National Organic Program which made “certified organic” a federally regulated claim.Learn more about CCOF.
The Natural Products Association is the largest and oldest nonprofit organization representing the interests of manufacturers and retailers of the natural products market, which includes organic and health foods, dietary supplements, natural ingredient cosmetics, and other similar products.

Other trends in the skin care market are the use of hyaluronic acid and retinoids because of their anti-aging properties; the use of probiotics ingredients in skin care products; and ingestible products that promote healthy skin.
