Curcumin infused products can reduce these effects along with providing better skin color. Brand owners in the personal care and cosmetic verticals are increasingly using this product as an additive.

Rising consumer awareness regarding the underlying benefits of using curcumin along with consumer inclination for organically produced products should bolster its market size in the forecast timeframe.
