In January, China officially approved that Hyaluronic Acid can be used in daily food, including dairy products, beverages, alcohol, chocolate, and candy. People believe that this could be a new emerging huge market for food and food supplement beauty products in China and are expected to become one of the fastest-growing food sectors.
The food beauty product market first emerged overseas. Close to China, In 1996, Japan officially listed hyaluronic acid as a food additive, and then a variety of related oral beauty products appeared, and they all came from POLA, FANCL, DHC, Shiseido, and other cosmetic manufacturers. After 2000, many other countries also allowed hyaluronic acid to be added to food or dietary supplements. The nutrient food field began to use hyaluronic acid on a large scale and soon surpassed the beauty field. Now, the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Brazil, and other countries have a variety of hyaluronic acid-containing health foods on the market. Japan alone has more than 160 types of hyaluronic acid foods. In 2020, the Coca-Cola Company also launched a tea drink containing hyaluronic acid in Japan, with 120mg hyaluronic acid added to each bottle.
