They say beauty comes from within, and companies like Vital Proteins and Goop are interpreting that literally for their wide range of beauty and wellness products. Soft gels, powders and gummies no longer are defined as just snacks or ‘pills,’ but as new methods of maintaining both outward appearances and inner wellness. Here are some of the best brands paving the way for the ingestible beauty movement, giving new meaning to the old adage.
Collagen’s benefits range from improving hair and nail growth to supporting joint and ligament health. Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides is an unflavored powder that can be added to any cold or hot liquid or easily baked into your favorite dessert. The bovine hide-based product is one of the best sources of ingestible collagen on the market and arguably the best to ingest.
new heights of hemp
Hemp-derived CBD has become the ingredient du jour in many beauty and wellness products—and for good reason. CBD, the non-psychoactive component of cannabis, has therapeutic benefits that include alleviating inflammation and pain both topically and internally. Populum Full-Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil uses all of the CBD molecules, which work together to provide the most effective results.
