Xangold 8% WDP, a new natural lutein ester in a water-dispersible powder, may work in "beauty from within" food and beverage products, according to Cognis Nutrition & Health.

"Consumers want skin care products that deliver beauty benefits through nutrition fueling one of the hottest trends in the market," he said.
