Seagull, the global specialized cosmetics firm, said the UAE organic cosmetics industry had witnessed a growth of 30 per cent in 2012.
On the beauty products, the study pointed out that the use of Caviar as beauty aid was very low in the UAE. "The use of caviar as food is 100 times higher than as beauty enhancer, it added.
The study further highlighted that globally caviar was being increasingly regarded as an important beauty treatment enhancer by cosmetics professionals who use it in facial, hair and skin treatments, reminiscent of Botox treatments when they were first discovered.
The same study also reveals that eating fish, sea fruits and caviar are very beneficial to the skin, serving as a definite shield against early skin aging.
Ratiba Ayad of Seagull said: “Caviar empowers body cells and protects them from flabbiness and aging. It is also beneficial in treating dark circles around the eyes.”

“The new product contains both pearls and caviar, and we anticipate that it will be a revolutionary solution in skincare industry," remarked Ayad.
"These recent studies have changed the perception among many cosmetics companies and some have started considering caviar as the ultimate beautify treatment element,” she stated.
Perle & Caviar is now considered one of the leading skincare solutions worldwide, being used by global cosmetics centres as it helps reducing the skin impurities that cause acne. It also contributes to a face lifting process, in addition to its vital moisturizing and nutrition elements, said Ayad.
According to the study, the caviar continues to be popular as both food and beauty agent.
