Here’s a sneak peek of some of the report’s biggest takeaways: 1.

Right now, skincare is the No. 2 vehicle for dispersing nootropics to users in the form of supplements. However, moving into 2022, consumers will see nootropics make their way into the likes of moisturizers, serums, and more. 2. Microdosing Is Going Macro: Doing a lot with a little — aka microdosing —is nothing new in skincare.
