Ajinomoto North America's aminobeauty™ Specialty and Personal Care to Launch Four New Products at NYSCC Suppliers' Day


Discover aminobeauty at the 2016 NYSCC Suppliers’ Day, May 10-11

Raleigh, NC (April 20, 2016) – Amino acids, the building blocks of protein, are key nutrients, vital for a healthy body. For years, nutrition, health and fitness experts have extoled the benefits of amino acids and their part in building strong muscles, joints and bones. As important as amino acids are to the inside of the human body, they are just as essential to the outside. Amino acids supply nutrients to nourish the skin, hair and nails, strengthening connective tissue and keeping the skin smooth and elastic, the nails firm and the hair strong.

For more than 100 years, Ajinomoto has dedicated itself to the science and development of products based on the properties and functions of natural amino acids, and the company now leverages that knowledge to manufacture the highest-quality health and beauty products to help top brands meet the requirements of their customers who demand only the purest, most effective products to keep them feeling beautiful - inside and out. These Specialty and Personal Care products share the name aminobeauty.

Ajinomoto’s aminobeauty celebrates the joy of life, at every stage and in all its diversity. Nature gives power and beauty to life through amino acid-based materials. With aminobeauty, nature's gift is ours - to create and maintain beautiful skin and hair throughout our lives.
