Liérac’s sun care range contains turmeric for its antioxidant benefits. The Solaire Anti-Wrinkle Eye Contour Sun Cream features SPF 30 sunscreen to protect the eye area and prevent wrinkles from appearing. The formula also contains mineral sun filters, sweet almond extract and prickly pear.

Korres Natural Products Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturizer is an oil-free, SPF 30, high protection, lightweight cream. It is formulated with watermelon extract, vanilla and Curcuma longa extracts. It claims to prevent photo-aging, decrease erythema and provide antioxidant protection. It is free from mineral oil, silicone, propylene glycol and ethanolamine.

Mintel expects turmeric to feature more prominently in Western cosmetic products as the benefits of ancient beauty traditions based on natural remedies become more widely accepted.
