A new study has revealed that pig skin health products could be one of the most popular skin care products on the market.
Researchers at the University of Cambridge analysed skin care websites of more than 200,000 people and found that skin care ingredients were more popular than traditional skin care brands.
The researchers found that pig health products were the most searched for skin care ingredient on average in the UK, compared with traditional skin creams and lotions.
However, a large majority of products in the top ten were pig-derived products.
These included pig skin-conditioning products, pig skin care and skin products containing pig skin ingredients.
The study also found that the brands of skin care items were more frequently compared to skin care foundations and other skin care cosmetics.
Professor Mark A. Lomax from the Department of Skin Sciences at the university said: “This study suggests that pig-skin health products are a popular skin-care product, and could be a key part of the overall skin care market.”
Our findings show that pigskin-health products are gaining popularity with the skin care industry and the market as a whole.
“Prof Lomacks research has revealed how pig skin has been used to treat skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and eczematous psoropharyngitis.
In addition to pig skin products, skin care companies have been selling pig skin creme, moisturiser and other pig skin treatment products.
Dr Mark Rimmer from the School of Nursing at the British Columbia College of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver said the research showed that pig products could play an important role in treating skin conditions such as eczemia, psoriatic arthritis and rosiasis.
He said:”This study shows that pig beauty products can be used to improve the skin tone, texture and moisture, while also promoting the production of collagen and collagen-like substances that enhance the skin’s elasticity and strength.”
It also suggests that there are many uses for pig skin and pig skin treatments.”
The study will be published in the journal PLOS ONE.
