“Beauty is about holistic wellness,” said Dr. Lucy Gildea, Chief Innovation Officer, Product & Science at Mary Kay. “We’ve researched the benefits of nutritional supplements for more than 15 years. Consumers not only want to look good—they want to feel good. Beauty starts from the inside out, and our latest research helps inform us on the future of nutritionals.”

According to research by Mary Kay, the consumption of nutritional drinks with this extract produced a significantly lower postprandial glucose response compared to consumption of drinks without it. The data also indicated that this extract supports “low Glycemic Index” properties. In addition, subjects who consumed the drink also reported improved satiety.

“This is just one example of the amazing research and efforts of Mary Kay scientists,” said Jen Alfrey, Senior Director of Global Nutrition at Mary Kay. “Investigating ways to enhance health, increase wellness, and improve beauty through nutrition is a priority for the team.”

The research revealed is just the latest effort by Mary Kay to reinforce the brand’s long-standing commitment to advancing skin health, research and development, and nutrition. Mary Kay holds more than 1,600 patents for products, technologies, and packaging designs in its global portfolio.
