Last year, Kraft Foods expanded its line of Crystal Light (www.crystallight.com) drink mixes to include two Skin Essentials varieties. Available in Pomegranate Lemonade and White Peach Tea, Crystal Light Skin Essentials aim to nourish skin from within. The products are formulated with antioxidant vitamins A, C and E as well as plant extracts, including beta-carotene and marigold flower extract that is a source of carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin.

New from Liquid Health Labs, Harrisville, R.I., Nutrelle (www.nutrelle.com) looks at anti-aging and beauty in a holistic sense, says Kenneth Milligan, the company’s chief science officer.
“It’s more than just skin and hair,” he says. “It’s about beauty retention.”
Targeting multiple beauty benefits, the Nutrelle line includes Firm & Hydrate: Blueberry Jasmine, Slim & Glow: Acai Grapefruit, Shield & Repair: Cantaloupe Lemon, Vitalize & Balance: Watermelon Banana and Calm & Zen: Matcha Tea Passion Fruit. The products include antioxidant vitamins A and C, B vitamins, beta-carotene, minerals, alpha lipoic acid, lycopene, collagen and CoQ10. The line also includes ingredients like Sendara and Sensorol, which aim to slow the aging process and stress; Wellberry that offers a highly absorbable form of vitamin C; GliSODin to help protect skin from UV radiation; and Super Citrimax to aid in satiety and weight loss.
PevoVitale is packaged in stick packets in counts of 30 for $59, and the company suggests drinking one crystal stick packet daily as a complement to Pevonia Botanica anti-aging skincare products.
