Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by David Tyrell, a leading analyst in the BPC sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

Consumers seek a better balance of body and mind, in which skincare plays an integral role. Clean, natural extracts that offer anti-stress benefits (eg adaptogens) are gaining greater acceptance in the West. Create new product mixes of traditional Eastern medicinal favorites as part of a holistic, natural set to relax and restore personal balance. Ward off both outdoor and indoor pollution, which for many regions has become the lead stress inducer. David Tyrell
