Women don’t expect to wait long for these results, with little variation between the expected length of time they expect a cosmeceutical or a nutricosmetic to show visible results. Eighty-four percent of women expect to reap the benefits of using a cosmeceutical product in two weeks to one month, while 80% of all women expect a nutricosmetic product to show its benefits between two weeks to one month.

The expectations are high for nutricosmetics and cosmeceuticals, as is the skepticism. Success will be measured not in industry buzz or initial acceptance but in long term sales stamina.
