Cosmeceuticals and Cosmetic Industry

Cosmeceuticals are cosmetic products with bioactive ingredients purported to have medical benefits. The name is a combination of "cosmetics" and "pharmaceuticals".
 "Nutricosmetics" are related dietary supplement or food or beverage products with additives that are marketed as having medical benefits that affect appearance.
