QminC by Thailand’s Tera Food & Beverage Co has expanded the vitamin-fortified functional drink to the collagen space. We have seen the shift of the category from purely vitamins or a combination of different vitamins to one that incorporates skin-beneficial ingredients like collagen.
Among the vitamin + collagen drinks in the Thai market are:
- GenC vitamin C and collagen
- Vitmores+ capsule vitamin water with CoQ10 and collagen
- Woody C+ Lock Collagen Mixed Berry
- Vitaday collagen and vitamin C
- C-vitt Plus offers gut protection and better skin complexion
The latest QminC Manuka Honey Collagen contains 4,200 mg of manuka honey from New Zealand to protect the skin from free radicals. The drink also features collagen tripeptide (2,500 mg) for skin rejuvenation as well as L-glutathione, vitamin A, E, C, B3 and zinc.
QminC Manuka Honey Collagen is available at 7-Eleven for a price of THB 25.
