GNC Picks Up Skin Care

It seems that the word nutraceutical has caught on, as General Nutrition Centers (GNC) Inc. is now carrying skin care products. The US-based nutrition and fitness chain has launched a therapeutic body care section of its store. The chain now carries natural and organic brands such as Ahava, Kneipp and Burt's Bees, among others.

The nutrition and fitness store once sold only nutritional, dietary and fitness supplement, what can be considered beauty from the inside out is now shifting some of its focus to beauty form the outside in. The two ideas have already come together in spas, and it was only a matter of time before they came together in the mainstream retail market. For more information, visit
