The use of food ingredients in personal care products is increasing, according to edible oil supplier Kerfoot on July 20.

An Avril Group company, Kerfoot is a global supplier of bulk and packaged refined and specialty oils to brands, manufacturers and distributors in the food and personal care sectors.

“The idea of food ingredients making this leap is not new – olive oil is a great example,” said Simon Corner, sales and marketing director at Kerfoot Group.

“Olive oil has been shown to be a highly effective skin care ingredient, with moisturizing and emollient effects, and is now commonly found in creams and lotions. What's particularly exciting now is the wide diversity of ingredients that are following suit. ”

Avocado is an example, he said, for being a natural source of vitamins C, E, K and B6, and for its moisturizing qualities in skin care products.

Purchasing trends have shown that consumers are choosing natural ingredients over synthetic options, Corner said.

“The power of plant-based ingredients over synthetic or synthesized additives can clearly be seen in personal care – particularly for brands looking to get creative with formulations,” he added.

For example, macadamia nut oil, which was rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fats, was proving to be a popular natural addition to personal care products, he said.

Popular uses for macadamia nut oil include facial and body moisturizers, massage and therapeutic oils, according to Corner.

Coffee butter was another example, he explained. Created by hydrogenating oil from pressed coffee beans, the resulting butter was popular in anti-aging and sensitive skin soaps.
