Kakadu plum is an antioxidant-dense fruit found mainly in Northern Australia.
The Kakadu plum has approximately 55 times more vitamin C than an orange, making it a potent antioxidant skincare ingredient.
We’re seeing a growing number of Kakadu plum-based skincare products being launched.
In fact, the Mintel Global Products Database estimates that nearly 1% of all new skincare products launched last year contained Kakadu plum.
A highly-rated pack of Kakadu plum-based gel brings in an estimated $2K/month on Amazon.
Kakadu plums are part of the Fruit-based Skincare meta trend.
Approximately 78% of US consumers are interested in trying fruit-based skincare products.
Which is leading to an increasing number of startups and companies launching fruit-based skincare lines.
Strawberry serums, blueberry cleansers and watermelon masks are examples of trending fruit-based skincare products.
(Micro frontends split an entire frontend of an app into smaller, more manageable pieces that work together.)
Module Federation architecture makes developing micro frontends more efficient because it can dynamically share necessary code between micro frontends. Which removes the need for code duplication or external custom library management.
The new architecture has around 3,500 stars on GitHub.
Module Federation is part of the Micro Frontend Revolution meta trend.
Searches for “Micro Frontend” have increased by 3133% over the last five years.
Applying a micro frontend design allows developers to build more interactive, more manageable and more scalable frontends.
Specifically, micro frontends are better suited for large frontend projects. Instead of working with the entire frontend architecture for changes or updates, micro frontends allow developers to target precisely what they want to change without even “touching” the other parts of the architecture.
Which is why companies such as Fiverr, IKEA, Microsoft, Starbucks, etc., are increasingly relying on micro frontends for their applications.
Delta Extrax is a DTC startup focused on the THC space.
The startup’s focus on Delta-8 products are the main reason this startup is trending.
Delta Extrax is also unique in that they publish third-party lab tests conducted on their products.
All this is why CBinsights estimates that Delta Extrax’s sales grew more than 2x last year.
Delta Extrax is part of the Delta-8 Goes Mainstream meta trend.
Searches for “Delta 8” have increased by 3000% over the past five years.
Interest in Delta 8 products is growing mainly because it has notably fewer side effects compared to traditional THC.
However, being a relatively new substance, it had been living in a gray legal area, with many states looking to ban it.
Recently, interest in Delta 8 has exploded because many states that have legalized marijuana have also cleared Delta 8, meaning that people can use it freely.
This has helped Delta 8 become the fastest-growing segment of the THC industry.
Metaverse Art Gallery
Metaverse art galleries are art exhibitions built on various metaverses.
The initial version of NFT exhibitions came in the form of NFTs that were presented in real-world settings.
However, NFT exhibitions have started to move to the metaverse, giving NFTs a new medium of display.
This category is gaining traction because several metaverses are launching gallery spaces.
And new artists are starting to use these galleries to display their art, often in the form of NFTs.
However, the major reason behind the increased interest in this category is the fact that major auction houses are starting to utilize these spaces by moving their galleries to the metaverse.
For instance, Sotheby’s has launched a virtual art gallery in the Decentraland metaverse in Decentraland’s Voltaire Art District.
Metaverse art galleries are part of the NFT Galleries meta trend.
Searches for “NFT gallery” are up 4400% in the last 24 months.
Major players (museums, architects and more) are jumping on the NFT gallery trend, which is accelerating interest in the trend.
For instance, the famous architecture firm Zaha Hadid Architects launched a virtual art gallery “NFTism” displaying a variety of NFTs and virtual architecture pieces at Art Basel Miami.
But NFT galleries have also become a profitable medium for aspiring NFT artists as exhibits displayed in a gallery tend to see rapid price increases.
For example, the price of the “Portrait of an Era” NFT exhibition increased 3x after its exhibition.
