HAIFA, ISRAEL — Frutarom, Inc. will market Copalis’ well-being and oral cosmetic ingredients to the functional food, dietary supplement and nutriosmetic markets in North America. The first of these products is Collactive, a natural anti-wrinkle ingredient targeting the beauty-from-within category.
"Collactive is one of the most prominent oral beauty ingredients in the French beauty-from-within market," said Laurent Leduc, vice-president of the U.S.A. Health Division of Frutarom. "We are excited to bring this natural anti-wrinkle ingredient to the American nutricosmetics market. This opens up new opportunities for companies seeking to expand their product line into personal care."
Collactive is an all-natural ingredient made up of marine collagen and elastin peptides, and the product is promoted as having an anti-wrinkle effect as it helps lift and tone skin, minimize lines and increase moisture.
