Some of the top ingredients — probiotics, CBD — aren’t new, but other list toppers like chlorophyll are being driven by trends on TikTok. “The idea of ‘beauty hacks’ is really popular: people are saying sea salt spray is a miracle cure for acne, and chlorophyll is another,” Barnes said. “Last year, we saw the boom in vitamin C, elderberry and other natural ingredients that help boost immunity. Now, people are emerging from lockdown into society, and these are other examples of shifts in consumer demand and priorities.”
