DolCas Biotech’s Curcugen chosen as key ingredient in Clear Within’s vegan nutricosmetic supplement for clear skin
Clear Within, a nutritional supplement company, has chosen Curcugen, DolCas Biotech’s concentrated turmeric extract, as the key ingredient for its vegan nutricosmetic supplement, designed to improve skin quality from the inside out. The product is sold in health shops and online and contains 60 veggie capsules with vitamins and nutrients that have been widely tested and studied. Curcugen was selected for its ability to address microbial imbalances and oxidative stress through its main bioactive ingredient, curcumin, known for its antibacterial and antiseptic properties.
Curcugen is becoming increasingly popular in nutritional supplements, with launch activity of supplements containing curcumin ingredients seeing a year-to-year growth of 12.6% over the last five years. Furthermore, in skin health (beauty from within), curcumin had a 14% share, with the second highest growth in the top 10 positionings, with a CAGR of 39.5%. Clear Within ultimately chose Curcugen for the reformulation of its beauty-from-within supplement due to its bioavailability of free curcumin and its array of essential oils and naturally occurring polar-type resins and polysaccharides that boost curcumin bioavailability.
Curcugen is designed for a variety of formulations, including traditional applications as well as novel foods and beverages. It is purely plant-based, non-GMO, and free from additives, synthetic and non-turmeric bioenhancers, and soy, making it ideal for consumers with dietary sensitivities. Curcugen is also manufactured in a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) facility, and the DolCas enterprise includes an encapsulation and packaging service division, which streamlines production, promotes sustainability, and minimizes the environmental impact.
