Liquid IV Hydration Multiplier Tropical Punch

Liquid I.V., Booth #2317
Liquid I.V. is launching two new flavors in 2022 for its core product, Hydration Multiplier: Tropical Punch and Concord Grape. In addition, the El Segundo, Calif.-based company is releasing a tart green apple flavor in its Hydration+ Powdered Probiotic Kombucha line.

Hydration Multiplier is a non-GMO electrolyte drink mix that utilizes Cellular Transport Technology, or CTT, to hydrate two times faster and more efficiently than water alone, the company said. According to the company, CTT, which is used in all of its products, is designed to enhance rapid absorption of water and other key ingredients into the bloodstream. 

Free of any artificial ingredients, Hydration Multiplier contains three times the electrolytes of traditional sports drinks, essential B vitamins and vitamin C. 

The mission-based company has donated more than 24 million servings to people in need around the globe as part of its one-to-one program, Giveback Mission to Change the World.

Reserveage Beauty Gummies

Reserveage Beauty, Booth #2313
A category first, Reserveage Beauty says it has cracked the code for a resveratrol gummy, aimed at providing antioxidant and cardiovascular support in a delicious format. It’s one of three new gummy products that are a line extension of the company’s No. 1 best sellers. 

According to the company, the pectin-based gummies deliver clinically studied dosages of these powerhouse beauty ingredients. The Keratin with Biotin Gummy helps to promote strong, thick hair. The Collagen Builder Gummy uses a dermaval collagen with astaxanthin to support skin and joints. The gummies are low in sugar and are free of artificial colors or flavors. 

The Boca Raton, Fla.-based company said it believes in the “beauty from the inside out” trend and has leaned into the topical skin care category. The company added that its collection is the perfect complement to its line of collagen-building supplements. Reserveage Beauty – Skincare is a line of four creams designed to address the most visible areas of skin on a woman’s body — the face, eyes, neck and décolleté, and hands and feet — using a proprietary technology for microencapsulated copper peptides because copper induces the formation of collagen. The cruelty-free skin care line is dermatologist-tested, and paraben and sulfate free.

Boiron Stress Calm Tablets

Boiron, Booth #131
The latest addition to Boiron’s Arnicare line of arnica-based pain relievers is Arnicare Arthritis Cream, aimed at temporarily relieving minor joint and muscle pain and stiffness due to arthritis, injuries, overexertion, falls and repetitive motions. The cream joins the homeopathic medicine leader’s line of popular topicals, oral pellets and tablets. 

The fragrance-free cream utilizes Arnica montana, a mountain daisy used traditionally for muscle pain, stiffness and bruising, alongside Harpagophytum, or devil’s claw, which is believed to relieve joint discomfort and stiffness associated with arthritis pain. The cream-gel formula, which comes in a 2.5-oz. tube, absorbs quickly and is suitable for use on all joints for adults and children age 12 years old and older.

The Newtown Square, Pa.-based company also launched a new sleep and stress line, featuring a blend of plant-based active ingredients to help relieve symptoms of occasional stress or sleeplessness. StressCalm and SleepCalm are non habit-forming and formulated without melatonin to restore the balance of nighttime and daytime states in the body, rather than masking symptoms with a substance that induces drowsiness. The unflavored melt away tablets dissolve in the mouth without food or water, and are free of artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors or preservatives.

These offerings reflect TRP’s continued dedication to promote eye health with products that are clean, simple and naturally formulated — providing a soothing approach to over-the-counter eye care treatment, the company said. Natural Eyes products contain 100% natural active ingredients, have no known side effects or interactions, and are safe for adults and children aged 2 years old and older.

Urban Hydration Honey hair care

Urban Hydration, Booth #131
Frisco, Texas-based Urban Hydration is now tackling care from head to toe by creating an entire clean beauty arsenal for its customers. The Black-owned personal care brand has launched hair care and bath and body collections based on customer research. The company found that one of the most important concerns of its customers is hair loss, which led to the creation of its new Aloe & Cucumber and Lemon & Honey hair care collections. Both lines include ingredients to deeply moisturize and help reduce oxidative damage and inflammation on the scalp and skin, as well as contain antibacterial and antifungal properties to keep the scalp healthy. 

Urban Hydration also sought to address another concern for its customers: moms over the age of 25 whose bodies aren’t producing as much collagen as they did before. The brand’s fruit-based skin care formulas are packed with vitamin C and collagen-producing ingredients, such as peach, papaya, mango, lime and vanilla. The bath and body collection features ingredients that help remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, prevent butt acne and “bacne,” and help renew skin cells with more strength and elasticity, the company said.

The product contains a combination of ingredients informed by the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society’s DEWS II report, including potassium, an electrolyte found naturally in tears, that plays an important role in ocular surface homeostasis, as well as erythritol, an antioxidant that protects HA against free radicals and also helps maintain ocular surface homeostasis.

Revive Custom Soft Contact Lenses is a family of customizable soft contact lenses that come in spherical, toric, multifocal and multifocal toric options. The line is designed to meet the vision needs of more patients, including those with high or unique prescriptions.
