Fermented Ingredients Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Fermented Ingredients in Cosmetics and Personal Care

  • The cosmetics and personal care sector use sufficient bacteria, yeasts, and other fermented ingredients in skincare products to take care of the skin. Fermented ingredients have functional benefits for the overall health of the skin.
  • The fermentation process increases the level of antioxidants in each ingredient, which helps slow down the skin's aging process. When used in topical skincare, this fermentation process increases the bioavailability of ingredients, which means that they can be absorbed at a deeper level. This is perfect for anyone with dehydrated skin. The fermentation process maintains the integrity of the ingredients.
  • Most unfermented cosmetics are made by heating a mixed formula of ingredients to a high temperature and then cooling them, which can potentially reduce the effectiveness of the active ingredients.
  • A fermented ingredient has a more acidic pH, which has a better affinity with the skin (with its naturally acidic pH). In addition, fermented ingredients also have anti-inflammatory properties. The fermentation process makes them rich in enzymes, which are able to soothe and prevent skin inflammation. Further, fermented ingredients in cosmetics and personal care cater to natural, organic, and chemical-free cosmetics, increasing their demand further in the market.

North America Holds the Largest Market Share

  • Consumer interest in the potential health benefits of fermented foods and beverages is increasing as they are becoming aware of the benefits offered by fermented products as it improves the digestive system, which influences immunity and brain functions. Thus, boosting the demand for various fermented ingredients such as amino acids, enzymes, etc.
  • The amino acid demand in the United States is fueled by increasing consumers' inclination toward high-protein diets for bodybuilding and general well-being. Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), namely valine, leucine, and isoleucine, are increasingly utilized in performance-nutrition solutions.
  • Further, Canadian consumers prioritize basic dietary habits, such as lowering sugar intake and including natural and functional food. This focus on a healthier diet and current purchasing trends drive the demand for fermented ingredients in Canada.
  • The dietary supplement sector of the Canadian marketplace has increasingly incorporated amino acids in its product formulations, targeting consumers looking to boost athletic performance or achieve body composition goals.
