In our round-up of the recent product developments in the Asia Pacific beauty and personal care market, we look into a vitamin K serum, a prebiotic hand sanitiser and more.

Is Vitamin K set to become the next ‘hero’ skin care ingredient?

The skin-repairing and strengthening abilities of vitamin K, coupled with the insatiable demand for new and exciting ingredients, will spur interest in the “wound healing vitamin”, according to one skin care brand.

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that can assist with redness, strengthen capillaries and can help with wound healing.

Skin care brand Biologi believes that vitamin K has the potential to become one of the next big things in skin care ingredients.

Scent Journer develops prebiotic hand sanitisers to keep up with post-COVID premiumisation

Scent Journer has released a line of hand sanitisers with prebiotics to keep up with the post-pandemic premiumisation of the hand care category.

Founder Joyce Lian has observed a gap in the market for hand sanitisers that truly help people who experience this, especially people with skin conditions like eczema.

Her research led her to develop a hand sanitiser with Fensebiome by Lubrizol, a prebiotic peptide that helps to microbiota balance and diversity by increasing beneficial bacteria that is found in healthy skin.

Meeth developing bikini line moisturiser in collaboration with consumers

J-beauty brand Meeth is developing a moisturiser for the sensitive bikini line area in collaboration with a group of consumers that personally pitched it to its CEO.

Brand founder and CEO Sonmi handpicked the idea out of over a hundred of pitches over an online event she held in 2020, where she invited her consumers to present product ideas to her.

Sonmi added that the presentation made her confident that releasing such a product would make a difference in the lives of women.
