Earlier this year, Monat launched Monat Wellness, a range of ingestible products, including: Monat Energy Boost for Body + Mind; Total Greens, a superfood mix comprising greens and fruits; Collagen Key, a vegan formulation comprising collagen building blocks; and Monat Balance, a complex of pre- and probiotics.
The move was in line with beauty's booming ingestible revolution. The formulations cover the key demands of the space, namely cognition, energy, mood, beauty and nutrition. Notably, sleep/calming is not currently encompassed by the initial collection.
In this exclusive video interview, Jeb Gleason-Allured, content director of Global Cosmetic Industry, speaks with Dr. Brent Agin, who is a member of Monat’s scientific advisory board, about the brand’s move into ingestible wellness.
