At CES 2023 Nourished in collaboration with Neutrogena unveiled a line of 3D-printed vegetarian vitamins that can be personalized for an individual’s specific skin care needs. This is a subscription service that people can pay for monthly and is printed for a month’s supply at a time.
Personalization is something that is needed in the wellness space since everyone has a unique biochemistry. It’s good to have services that can cater to that uniqueness. One of the issues with vitamins is that they are usually tested on average white men. So the effects they might have on women, people of color, or even people with different body compositions than those who participated in the studies.
It creates quality products and reduces mass production of identical products that will affect everyone differently. Nourished isn’t solely in the skin care niche; it creates personalized vitamins for a variety of purposes. From general adult and child multivitamins to sexual health, Immunity, Prenatal Sleep, and PCOS just to name a few.

Neutrogena is an extremely recognizable name in the world of skincare and I’ve definitely used their products for my skincare. They have products for showering, face washing, spot treatment, and more.
