According to the company, “research has shown us
that dietary supplements formulated with selected active
ingredients are extremely beneficial for the skin and
other tissues, and can fight the visible signs of aging.
Specific nutrients nourish the cells at a deeper level and
support key metabolic functions, playing an important
role in the appearance of the face and the body.”
For example, Pure Complexion contains a milk pro-
tein complex that consists of a minimum of 80% lacto-
ferrin, which helps balance oily skin and contributes to
skin purity; beta-carotene to help maintain healthy and
elastic skin, and promote healthy skin pigmentation
and tanning; vitamin C, which contributes to normal
collagen formation; and selenium, zinc and vitamin E.
Alongside specific supplement formulas, Functionalab
has launched 11 different Personalized Packs, which
combine various nutrients, extracts and vitamins to target specific health and beauty objectives, such as Ultra
Antioxidants & Superfruits; Trimming and Toning; Anti
Age 40+; Hair, Skin & Nails; PMS Hormonal Balance;
and Menopause with Osteo Support.
Each pack begins with the foundation of a high
quality multivitamin, according to Mr. Maheu, and
also provides additional nutrients that address specific profiles. For example, Anti Age 40+ includes a
collagen formula that consists of vitamin C and two
amino acids, L-lysine and L-proline, to support collagen production. Hyaluronic acid is an antioxidant
that protects cells from free radicals, and zeaxanthin
and lutein are carotenoids that help hydrate mature
skin and improve skin elasticity. Lutein also
improves skin appearance from damage associated
with premature aging, according to the company.
While most beauty brands typically target women
exclusively, Functionalab’s Personalized Packs line
also includes Cardio Support and Sports & Fitness,
which could apply to men and women alike, according
to Mr. Maheu. “Typically, most supplement purchases
are done by women in the household,” he noted.
