About the dietary supplements & cosmetic industries
In recent years we’ve seen a trend characterized by more people trying to maintain good health, especially in light of the growing population and rise in life expectancy and standard of living. People are looking for treatment, relief, and prevention in both the products they purchase and in their choice of lifestyle, and are trying to stay active and healthy. Cosmetics allow consumers to look better and preserve their external appearance during adolescence and over the years.
In the last decade, sales of vitamins, minerals, nutritional supplements, cosmetics and herbal products have risen sharply. Many new companies have entered the industry, mainly due to lower regulatory barriers compared to the pharmaceutical industry and the ability to sell products at high prices without the need for clinical evidence or proof.
This trend of transitioning to prevent disease, or preventative care, has supported growth of the dietary supplement industry. The desire to look and feel “forever young” supports high growth rates of medical cosmetics and medical aesthetics. Another trend, that of preferring to use natural products instead of synthetic drug products, has also supported the dietary supplement industry in the last decade.
In the past, patients would receive treatment only from doctors, but that is no longer the case. Consumers increasingly rely on databases and the internet to self-diagnose and identify targeted health needs. This trend has benefited manufacturers of vitamins, dietary supplements and cosmetics, and enables consumers to be more proactive while finding more customized solutions.
It is important to note that the dietary supplements and cosmetics industries are characterized by products that are clinically effective, and that these industries are highly regulated. Nevertheless, there is real concern about the presence of unsafe or ineffective products on the market.
