Synergistic wellness bars
Attune Foods has tuned in to the public desire for probiotics by introducing Attune Probiotic Wellness Bars, the first all-natural, 100-calorie daily wellness bar featuring beneficialprobiotics — said to contain five times the amount of friendly bacteria found in a typical yoghurt. The bar company has sourced DSM's Lafti brand probiotic cultures — Lactobacillus acidophilus, L casei and Bifidobacterium lactis. The bars also contain inulin, a prebiotic fibre that acts as a food for the probiotic bacteria, and are available in three flavours: chocolate crisp, cool mint chocolate and blueberry vanilla. The company was spun off from Brand New Brands, an innovative functional-foods manufacturer.
Cosmetics with grape-seed extract
Homing in on its antioxidant properties, the 29 cosmetics line claims to be the world's first comprehensive cosmetics collection containing grape-seed extract, with the aim of protecting and repairing skin while enhancing its appearance. Launched by California-based Lydia Mondavi, of the Mondavi wine family, the collection contains eyes, lips, face and essentials categories. It also includes four feature products: D'vine Conditioning Mascara, Preserves Lip Therapies, Dew Lip Gloss and Napa Mist Atomizer. The main focus of the line is that its antioxidant properties help to purify the skin, which in turn help skin cells to fight off free radicals that can lead to visible signs of ageing.
