Red wine no longer just for drinking
Red Wine Facial Lotion and Pomegranate Wine Body Lotion are just two of the new products containing wine we can expect to see in 2005 according to Mintels Global New Products Database (GNPD). Red wine is expected to appear in a range of skincare and cosmetics due to its natural antioxidant properties.
In recent years there has been a real trend towards using more natural and even organic products, not only in food and drink, but also in a wide range of cosmetics and toiletries, says David Jago, director of GNPD consulting. As wine is perceived as an all-natural product, this development seems to be a logical progression, he adds.
The report also reveals that carbohydrates such as potatoes, bread and rice, are back in favour. It states that the low carb diet now seems almost pass as dieters look elsewhere for ways to shed those pounds.
