Although the concept of "inner health, outer beauty” is not a new one, consumers are now using ingredients on their skin and hair that are typically considered healthy to ingest. The belief is that if we topically apply highly nutritive ingredients to our hair and skin we may be able to improve their health and appearance. As a result formulators are now searching for novel and extravagant ingredients that not only fortify the body, but convey a sense of rarity and elegance as well.
A delicacy typically enjoyed for centuries by Czars, Shahs and Emperors, caviar is an expensive luxurious treat many like to indulge in on special occasions. Caviar, traditionally, refers to the roe of sturgeon. It is a rare and expensive not only due to the over fishing of sturgeon, but also due to the long maturity of sturgeon. Typically female sturgeon reach a maturity cycle between 15 and 20 years, at which time the roe can be harvested. Aside from its rarity, unique and delicate flavor, caviar is also highly nutritious. Rich in 19 different amino acids, vitamins, minerals and omega – 3 and omega – 6 essential fatty acids, caviar is considered to be a "super food” capable of fulfilling many dietary needs.
The source of caviar used to produce FSS White Caviar Extract PF is the roe of the lake whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis). Due to sturgeon (Acipenseriformes) being an endangered species, we do not use this source of roe.
