Acerola: Ingredients high in Vitamin C, like acerola, are being used more often due to their ability to even out skin tone and brighten complexion. Skin care brands will be using acerola more to target those who have issues with skin redness and inflammation.
Blueberry: This berry is full of amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, making it useful in antiaging.
Probiotics: Probiotic skin care will be branded as another "clinical-like" line of products, which beauty consumers tend to lean towards as science-based.
Palmitoyl tripeptide-3: This ingredient is often used in antiaging products to fight fine lines and wrinkles. Products that contain palmitoyl tripeptide-3 will be branded as a temporary alternative to cosmetic procedures.
Myrrh: With the increasing popularity of Ayurveda in the Unites States, this ancient ingredient is also resurging in perfumes and skin care products. The rich resin has a slight vanilla fragrance that is popular in incense, but it also stimulates circulation and has lifting effects.
