Fi Asia 2018 took place at the beginning of this month in Jakarta (Indonesia). According to the organizers, the event keeps on breaking records not only of attendance but also of exhibitors. The health food market continues to grow in Indonesia at an accelerated pace motivated by the growth of the standard of living and the awareness of the population of the importance of prevention rather than cure.
Skin cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer in the world. In the majority of cases, it is due to excessive, unprotective exposure to the sun’s UV rays, which penetrate and damage the skin over time.
We want to take the opportunity to congratulate our Japanese customer Medicube for his Silver Quality Award recently got in the 54th edition of World Selection 2018 of Diet and Health Products.
The skin reflects our health status and aging. Skin aging is an inevitable process that is partially written in our DNA, our ethnicity and skin type makes difference in what way and how quickly aging appears in the surface of our skin.
While many countries around the world, especially Europe, have fully embraced the “beauty from within” concept for almost two decades it has taken the Americans a long time to fully embrace this idea and now are beginning to accept this concept. It has always been thought that anything to do with skin care such as reduction of wrinkles, skin elasticity, etc.. can only be treated by topical products. Today that thought is changing and ingestible skin care products are coming into vogue. The idea of nutrition for the “whole body” is a benefit that comes from the supplement industry. Not only is it a convenient way to get skin health and beauty support for the entire body but products that are natural and are considered multi purpose are what the consumer is looking for.
Dietary supplementation is not something new; the first supplement was already commercialized in the US in 1936.
