Which heat is lower in the quarrel between sweet corn and waxy corn?

  Stews, soups, and staple foods … … Corn, which can be easily bought all year round, frequently appears at the public table. However, recently, the controversy about which sweet corn or waxy corn is lower in calories and more suitable for weight loss has caused a hot search, which has once again puzzled the "people who eat corn" in the comment area. Experts said that if there is a heat dispute during the weight loss period, sweet corn is still better.

  On the dining table, corn can be seen everywhere. Sweet corn has golden appearance, full grains, soft skin and natural sweetness. Sweet corn with sweet taste is suitable for direct consumption or as a salad ingredient, stew, etc. Waxy corn can also be called sticky corn, which is short and round in appearance, crystal clear and sticky. When you take a bite, it has a "glutinous" taste.

  So what kind of corn is more suitable to eat during weight loss and calorie control? Relevant data show that the energy of sweet corn is about 86 kcal/100g, while that of waxy corn is about 161 kcal/100g. However, some netizens suggested that the weight of a waxy corn is about 200-220g, and the energy is 320-350kcal. And a sweet corn is about 350 grams, and the energy is about 300 kilocalories. In contrast, it seems that eating a whole sweet corn or a whole waxy corn has little difference in calories.

  What is the difference between the two kinds of corn, and how to choose it? The reporter asked Dai Chun, a nutritionist, deputy director of Nanjing First Hospital. She said that during the weight loss period, it is still recommended to choose sweet corn under the condition of the same weight (rather than "one root").

  Relevant professional food databases show that 76% of yellow sweet corn is water, only 5.7% is starch, and 6.26% is composed of sucrose, glucose and fructose. Because of its high soluble sugar content, sweet corn is sweet when eaten in the mouth as the name suggests, and it is not sweet until it is decomposed into glucose by repeated chewing like starch. The reason why it is crisp and tender is because of its high water content and relatively low starch content. Therefore, although the sweet corn with tender water is "sweet", the total carbohydrate content and total calories are actually not high.

  The sticky waxy corn is not. Under the control of waxy genes in corn, the synthesis of amylose is prevented, and the proportion of amylopectin is almost 100%. The branch-like structure of amylopectin contains a large number of glucose molecules, and the connection is loose. Each grape molecule can be well exposed to the action of digestive enzymes and digested into the blood quickly. It can also be seen from the GI (glycemic index) data published by China Food Nutrition Composition Table (6th Edition) and the test data of China Food Fermentation Industry Research Institute that the GI value of sweet corn is 55 and that of waxy corn is 106 per 100g edible part. Comparatively speaking, for people who need to lose weight and control their blood sugar, sweet corn may be more suitable than waxy corn, but they should not eat too much at one time.

  Experts remind that some dieters rely too much on corn, and it is not advisable to use it as a staple food during the fat reduction period. Compared with polished rice and white flour, corn contains a lot of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, but the calories are not low. If you eat too much, you will get fat. Eating corn alone may also cause the problem of insufficient protein, which is not conducive to weight loss and health.

World Weekly’s "New Strategy" for the United States and Ukraine?

Original title: World Weekly’s "New Strategy" for the United States and Ukraine?
With the coming of severe winter, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which has lasted for 22 months, is more and more like a forgotten war. This week, Ukrainian President Zelenski visited Washington again when Ukraine’s counter-offensive failed and US aid to Ukraine was "about to run out". From the outside world, Zelenski’s trip has a strong purpose of "alms". However, the BBC pointed out that Zelenski’s trip was almost "nothing" and the aid to Ukraine remained deadlocked. The New York Times further pointed out that senior US and Ukrainian military officials were holding talks to try to find a "new strategy".

eleven past ten p.m.
December 10th, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Travel-stained Ukrainian President Zelenski flew halfway around the world to attend the inauguration ceremony of the new Argentine President Milo. However, Zelenski, who was in Argentina, had already flown to the United States.
Ukrainian President Zelenski:Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, I will go to Washington with my team. We have arranged many meetings and negotiations with President Biden and Congress, which is of great significance.
The next day, Zelenski started his third visit to the United States after the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.
But unlike the previous two times, this time Washington didn’t greet him with a red carpet.
On the afternoon of December 12th, US President Biden met with visiting Zelenski in the Oval Office of the White House. Then the two held a joint press conference.
In the YouTube live broadcast of the White House, people actually found such an embarrassing scene.
Ukrainian President Zelenski:American leadership is critical to maintaining this unity.
Soon, this video went viral on social media. Some netizens commented: "This is very embarrassing. Why does Biden blow his nose at Zelenski?"
In fact, when two people face reporters together, such embarrassment appears constantly.
Reporter:Many Republicans question Ukraine’s ability to win the war. US Senator Vance even said recently that Ukraine needs to cede some territory to stop fighting. Honestly, have you considered giving up territory to stop fighting?
Ukrainian President Zelenski:This question is not only related to what we say or think, but also whether we are fully prepared. How could Ukraine give up its territory? To be honest, it’s crazy.
In December last year, Zelenski started his first visit to the United States since the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
During that visit, he received nearly $1.8 billion in military assistance from the United States and the Patriot air defense missile system.
In 2023, the United States and Europe increased their aid to the Ukrainian army, and even gave the green light to provide main battle tanks and long-range weapons.
This time, however, subtle changes have taken place in the political atmosphere of US domestic aid to Ukraine.
The reason is very simple. Aid is not without cost. However, since the summer of this year, the Ukrainian military has made little progress in its counter-offensive with western-trained personnel and weapons, and the Russian-Ukrainian war is in trouble.
The British "Financial Times" pointed out that Ukraine felt the "aid fatigue syndrome" in the West.
On December 12th, it was not only Zelenski who was pressed by reporters, but also US President Biden.
Reporter:In recent months, Ukraine’s counterattack has stagnated, and Congress has blocked the passage of the aid budget for Ukraine. Putin seems ready to wait until the situation is over. So, what strategies will the United States and Ukraine adopt next year to reverse this situation? If it fails, as a friend, when will you say to Ukraine, "Maybe it’s time to start seeking peace talks"?
US President Biden:We need to ensure that Putin continues to fail in Ukraine and Ukraine continues to succeed. The best way is to pass a supplementary budget.
Biden’s supplementary budget is a package of funding proposals put forward by the White House, including more than 60 billion US dollars in aid to Ukraine.
However, just last week, the budget was rejected by the Senate because of the opposition of ultra-conservative Republican lawmakers and some centrists.
Seeing that the US Congress is about to adjourn before the traditional holiday, Biden is anxious and helpless.
US President Biden:This can’t wait any longer. Congress needs to pass supplementary appropriations for Ukraine before the holiday recess. It’s as simple as that.
The promised 60 billion aid to Ukraine was blocked, and the amount of aid to Ukraine announced by Biden in front of Zelenski was only a fraction: $200 million. Even his words changed subtly: "We will support them as long as we can".
Prior to this, Biden said many times: "We will support Ukraine as long as it takes."
This may be the biggest knot of Zelenski’s visit to the United States.
On the morning of the meeting with Biden, he had just held closed-door talks with US congressmen, trying to persuade them to release the aid funds to Ukraine. After leaving Congress, Zelenski posted on social media that the talks were "friendly and frank".
However, the media noticed that when he walked out of the Capitol, he didn’t stop to answer reporters’ questions, which seemed to be in a bad mood.
Johnson, the Republican Speaker of the US House of Representatives, echoed Zelenski’s statement.
Johnson, Speaker of the US House of Representatives:I just had a pleasant talk with President Zelenski, and I reiterate that we stand with him.
But after verbal support, Johnson’s next words will not make President Zelenski feel happy, but will be even more disturbing.
Johnson, Speaker of the US House of Representatives:The Biden administration seems to be asking for billions of dollars in extra funds, without proper supervision, without a clear winning strategy, and without the answer I think the American people deserve.
In fact, in the United States, where the party struggle is increasingly fierce, Republicans have seen an "opportunity" to use the Biden administration’s urgent psychology to help Ukraine.
Johnson, Speaker of the US House of Representatives:Since I took over as Speaker, I have made it very clear that we need to be clear about our actions in Ukraine and how we can properly supervise the valuable taxes of American taxpayers. We need a revolutionary border policy.
This actually means that Republicans will use the $60 billion in new reinforcements to Ukraine as a bargaining chip, forcing Biden’s government to accept the border immigration policy during Trump’s period, including further building the border fence and tightening refugee qualifications.
If the Biden administration accepts these conditions, it will be tantamount to "political suicide."
With the approaching of the 2024 American election, the tearing struggle between the two parties has also intensified.
On December 13th, local time, the day after Biden met with Zelenski, Republicans in the US House of Representatives voted to formally investigate the impeachment of US President Biden.
James Comer, Chairman of the US House Oversight Committee:This is a survey of public corruption at the highest level, and we have accumulated a lot of evidence related to the vast majority of Americans.
As soon as Biden met with Zelenski at the meeting, Republicans threw out the political "nuclear bomb" of impeachment, which was tantamount to hoping to completely destroy Biden’s re-election path.
And Zelenski’s trip to "ask for help" seems doomed to "no gain".
Kirby, spokesman of the US National Security Council:Today, we announced the latest security assistance plan to support Ukraine. This is the 52nd batch of weapons and equipment we sent to Ukraine to help them meet the urgent battlefield needs while continuing their counter-offensive.
On December 6th, before Zelenski’s visit to the United States, the United States announced a new batch of aid weapons, including artillery and ammunition.
On the 7th, when meeting with visiting British Foreign Secretary David Cameron, Secretary of State blinken listed the western aid to Ukraine.
US Secretary of State blinken:The United States has provided more than $70 billion in aid to Ukraine, and our European allies have provided more than $110 billion in support.
The vast majority of these huge funds have become weapons provided to Uzbekistan, but the protracted war has consumed a large amount of American weapons stocks. In July this year, the United States even provided Ukraine with mass destruction cluster munitions that were banned by international law.
This was strongly opposed by the majority of the American people.
In October this year, a poll in Reuters showed that about 35% of Americans now disapprove of US arms assistance to Ukraine. In this regard, the Russian "Viewpoint" commented that the West is now beginning to realize that Ukraine has become an abyss.
On December 7th, US Secretary of State blinken told the truth about aiding Ukraine.
US Secretary of State blinken:90% of the security assistance we provide is actually spent in the United States, on our manufacturers and our production, creating more employment opportunities for Americans and promoting our own economic growth.
Using Ukraine to consume Russia, and American factories can also get weapons orders, which is the real logic of aiding Ukraine.
US Secretary of Defense lloyd austin:During this administration, the output of artillery shells in the United States will not only increase, but also quadruple. At the same time, we launched what the Army called the most ambitious modernization of the national defense industry in the past 40 years.
However, even if the arch fire war can kill two birds with one stone, the United States still has to calculate the "cost-effectiveness ratio".
On December 12th, an article in The New York Times entitled "After the failed counterattack, the United States and Ukraine seek a new strategy" revealed that while Zelenski hopes to continue to launch ground attacks to attract the world’s attention, the Biden administration is promoting a new strategy to be implemented from the beginning of next year, so that Ukraine can turn to the defensive, and at the same time accumulate materials and mobilize troops.
US Secretary of Defense Austin:Today we are working with our allies and partners to help Ukraine build an armed force that can resist Russia in the next few years.
The New York Times also disclosed that the United States has decided to increase its efforts to provide "face-to-face military advice" to Ukraine, and is prepared to send a Samsung general to stay in Kiev for quite a long time.
Some American officials said that if Ukraine does not change its strategy, there may be a situation in 1916 during World War I in 2024, when a large number of soldiers were killed, but the front line has hardly changed.
For Zelenski, this is not good news.
On December 13th, Zelenski made a surprise visit to the Norwegian capital.
According to The Wall Street Journal, this shows that Ukraine turned its hope to Europe after the United States was cold for help.
However, on the issue of aiding Ukraine, cracks have already appeared within Europe.
The French newspaper Le Monde reported that since Zaluzhnyi, commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian armed forces, publicly admitted that the front-line war was deadlocked, a "general sense of helplessness" has always hung over Kiev’s western allies. In Europe, aid to Ukraine has increasingly become the weight of the game for countries’ own interests.
December 13th, Oslo, Norway. Zelenski received "good news" as soon as he arrived in Norway.
On this day, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland held a Nordic summit. The meeting issued a joint statement saying: "The Nordic countries will stand with Ukraine."
Compared with verbal support, real money and silver aid is naturally true and reliable.
The Norwegian Parliament has previously approved a package plan to donate 75 billion kronor to Ukraine within five years, and the first batch will donate 3 billion kronor (about 2.08 billion yuan).
However, in addition to being happy, Zelenski still values another summit in another place.
Ukrainian President Zelenski:First of all, the summit held on December 14th was not easy. We are very satisfied that 99% countries in the EU support Ukraine, and they are ready to start negotiations on Ukraine’s future accession to the EU.
On December 14th, EU leaders gathered in Brussels for the last summit of this year. At this summit, the most concerned issue is undoubtedly Ukraine’s accession to the EU and its aid to Ukraine of 50 billion euros.
Just before the opening of the summit, the European Commission announced that it would unfreeze about 10 billion euros of "cohesion fund" for Hungary.
The BBC said that this move can be interpreted as the EU’s attempt to soften Hungary’s position. Because Hungary has raised objections to the EU’s opening of Ukraine’s accession negotiations and aid to Ukraine, both of which must be approved by all EU members.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban:Ukraine’s rapid accession to the EU is not in the interests of Hungary or the EU.
Zelenski was well aware of Orban’s attitude, and he tried to convince Orban when he attended the inauguration ceremony of the new Argentine president.
Ukrainian President Zelenski:During the inauguration ceremony, I had a talk with Hungarian Prime Minister Orban, which was very straightforward and focused on our European affairs.
However, Orban’s position has not changed. Before attending the EU summit, he told the Hungarian parliament: "In Europe, we are the spokesmen of common sense."
Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Economy West Jardot:The EU should expand peace and should not accommodate war, and we feel that allowing Ukraine to join now also means including war.
According to EU sources, during the voting on December 14th, Orban temporarily left the voting hall. This absentee voting was not an accident, but was agreed with Orban in a constructive way in advance by the EU.
After the vote on that day, Orban said on social media that it was irrational and meaningless to start accession negotiations with Ukraine.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban:Since the other 26 countries insisted on this decision, Hungary decided to let them go their own way, and Hungary was unwilling to participate in this wrong decision.
In fact, European public opinion believes that as the conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues, the "Ukrainian fatigue syndrome" is also spreading in more and more EU countries. Except Hungary, the attitudes of Poland, Slovakia, Austria and other countries are actually changing.
Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fizzo has repeatedly stated that Slovakia supports Ukraine’s territorial integrity and independence, but will not provide it with military assistance.
Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fizzo:Because I don’t believe that military assistance can solve the Ukrainian crisis.
On December 11th, Austrian Prime Minister Nehmer said at a government meeting that "Ukraine should not be given any preferential treatment" on the issue of joining the EU. Behind the change of attitude are the different interests of EU countries.
On December 8, representatives of agricultural organizations and food producers from Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia held a meeting, calling on the EU to urgently deal with the negative impact of Ukrainian agricultural products exported to the European market.
Because Ukrainian agricultural products were blocked from being transported through the Black Sea, a large number of them entered Europe and hit the markets of Poland and other countries, causing dissatisfaction.
Pavel Lipovski runs a 500-hectare farm in central Poland. He said that the detention of Ukrainian agricultural products had a huge impact on his farm and family.
Polish farmer Pavel Lipovski:Since the conflict of exporting agricultural products in Ukraine, the prices of local agricultural products have been declining. The price of wheat has dropped by a third, and corn is nearly a third cheaper. In addition, our profits are very small. If we continue like this, even if our country has so many hectares of land, I can’t see any prospects.
At the same time, since the European Union lifted the restriction on the number of people entering Europe to help Ukraine in the war, Polish truck drivers have been accusing Ukrainians of stealing their business, and a large number of drivers blocked the border between Poland and Ukraine and launched a strike.
Pavel Ozgra, Chairman of the Strike Committee:We have been supporting Ukraine, but we also need to support our own families. For our company, this is a matter of survival or destruction.
Villager Yolanda in a village near Poland:I don’t support Ukrainians anymore. I’m fed up with them.
The protracted Russia-Ukraine conflict and its spillover effects have made all EU countries consider their own interests.
On December 13th, the German newspaper frankfurter allgemeine zeitung quoted the latest report of the German Economic Research Institute as saying that if Ukraine joins the EU, up to 17% of the EU common budget will flow into Ukraine, of which only the agricultural subsidies to Ukraine will be as high as 130 billion to 190 billion euros in the next few years.
Zimbabwe MP Supa Mandiwanzla:Recently, Europe has also realized that they have not benefited from the conflict. Compared with before the conflict, the economy has fallen into a quagmire. They tried to sanction Russia, but to some extent, they strengthened Russia and weakened Europe and EU countries.
In fact, throughout Europe, the call for a peaceful solution to the Ukrainian crisis has become louder and louder.
On September 21st this year, on the International Day of Peace, several cities in Germany held peaceful rallies, calling for a peaceful settlement of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.
German people Wolfgang:Military means is not the solution to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, and the Russian-Ukrainian conflict can only be resolved through diplomatic means.
German people Mishi:Weapons delivery cannot solve conflicts, only peaceful negotiations can.
Even those European politicians who strongly support aid to Ukraine in public may not really think so.
According to the British Guardian, two Russian pranks phoned Italian Prime Minister Silvio meloni in September this year, posing as African leaders. On the phone, meloni expressed his true thoughts on the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Italian Prime Minister meloni:I see that everyone is tired, and I must tell the truth, from all sides.
Under the leadership of the United States, the West continues to send weapons and equipment to Ukraine, and its real purpose is for its own interests.
For Norway, which actively assisted Ukraine, Russian TV today quoted NRK, a Norwegian public broadcaster, as saying that the country earned $31 billion from the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, which led to soaring energy prices. Last year, Norway’s oil and gas revenue hit a record high.
Brazilian geopolitical scholar Pepe Escobar:First of all, it needs to be clear that the Russian-Ukrainian conflict is a war in which the United States uses NATO against Russia. Secondly, this war is not good for Europe, because the initiators of the war began to plan at least eight years ago, and their purpose is to deindustrialize Europe, cut off the economic ties between Germany and Russia, and make Europe an ornament of American hegemony.
Today, compared with last year’s support for Ukraine, there is no prospect of victory in the war, which has caused the EU as a whole to fall into "aid fatigue".
In particular, the European Union, which is in the midst of an economic crisis, is considering cutting its own budget, so it is difficult to bear any new burden.
On December 15th, the EU Summit voted on the much-watched 50 billion euro aid plan to Ukraine. Because Hungary voted against it, it failed to reach an agreement on the plan.
Australia’s "Dialogue" news network bluntly said that in the past week, the aid plans of the United States and Europe have both been frustrated, which makes people feel that the fate of Ukraine is more like being decided by Washington and Brussels than by the battlefield.
Nowadays, for western politicians, Ukraine seems to have become a "hot potato" and a "victim" that can be abandoned at any time.
In the coming year of 2024, both the United States and Russia will hold general elections, which makes the prospect of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict even more confusing.
According to Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao, whether the West can continue to vigorously aid Ukraine, whether Ukraine can continue to endure casualties and inconvenience in life, and who can be elected president of the United States in 2024, these three factors may influence the outcome of this war.

The two giants in the Premier League compete for it! 27-year-old star wants to go: 68 games with 32 goals, priced at 80 million.

The 27-year-old Ivan Toni is once again caught in a transfer rumor. On November 1st, the British Evening Standard revealed that Chelsea and Arsenal, the two giants in the Premier League, are competing and hope to sign Tony in January next year. Brentford offered Tony a price of 80 million pounds, and the players sought to leave the team and play for a better club.

There is no doubt about Ivan Tony’s ability. In the Premier League in 2022-23, Tony scored 20 goals, ranking third in the top scorer list, only behind Harland (36 goals) and Kane (28 goals). During his Premier League career, Tony scored 32 goals in 68 games, and his efficiency was not bad. However, Tony got into big trouble: he bet on a football match, was banned by the FA for eight months, and will be released on January 17th next year.

The Evening Standard pointed out that brentford was willing to sell Ivan Toni for 80 million pounds. Objectively speaking, this price tag is somewhat inflated: Tony’s contract is only one and a half years, the player’s valuation in Germany is 30 million pounds, and he has not played a formal game for half a year.

There is no room for a big bodhisattva in a small temple. For his future, Ivan Tony is very clear: he wants to leave brentford and go to an "elite club". To this end, Ivan Toni also changed his agent and let Banert (who used to be Bell’s agent) handle his own transfer.

According to the analysis of the Evening Standard, both Arsenal and Chelsea intend to make moves in January next year:

Arsenal’s goal is still to compete for the Premier League title. If a scorer with 10 goals in the middle of the game is introduced in January, it will be of great help to the championship. Although Arsenal have Jesus and Nketiya, they are not prolific centers. Arsenal manager Artta appreciates Ivan Toni’s scoring ability. This summer, Arsenal spent 200 million pounds to bring in Tony in the winter window. The Gunners need to sell players to raise funds first.

Chelsea, with deep pockets, also intends to supplement the front line. Chelsea spent 1 billion pounds, completely overthrown and rebuilt, and there was not much improvement. This season, the Premier League only scored 12 points in 10 games and scored only 1.3 goals per game. In January next year, Jackson will play in the African Cup of Nations. Chelsea, which was originally weak in attack, needs Tony’s help.

Tony, who returned from the ban in January, hopes to complete the transfer in the winter window, seize the opportunity of half a year, strive for more goals, win the trust of English coach southgate and be selected for the European Cup 2024. As an excellent striker in the Premier League, Tony has only played for England once, which is not in line with his strength.


There is a new outlet in the make-up track: "pure beauty" with high unit price

Interface journalist | Zhou Fangying

Interface News Editor | Lou Qinqin

According to the investment community, the pure makeup brand "RED CHAMBER Zhu Zhan" has recently completed tens of millions of yuan of financing, led by Xinyi Capital, followed by Shuiyang shares, and the old shareholder Pullman Venture Capital continued to chase after the investment. Sky-Eye Survey shows that in September, 2021, the brand received angel round investment from Pullman Venture Capital, and the specific amount was not disclosed.

This round of financing is alleged to be used to accelerate the research and development of pure formulas, stabilize the supply chain, and continue to drive brand building and promotion.

The parent company of RED CHAMBER was founded in 2020, but the brand was officially unveiled in 2021. The first tweet of RED CHAMBER’s official micro-signal shows that the brand will focus on natural and pure characteristics.

According to its tweet, RED CHAMBER eliminated 2,800 risky and controversial ingredients, such as talcum powder, alcohol, essence, and cyclic silicon, according to the China Cosmetic Safety Technical Specification (2015 edition) and the EU EC(2020 edition) list of prohibited substances in cosmetics, and then screened out less than 600 pure ingredients from more than 10,000 cosmetic ingredients that were allowed to be added, so as to ensure that the risks of product sensitization and pore blockage were reduced.

As RED CHAMBER said in its introduction, due to the limitation of available raw materials, the research and development time and cost of pure beauty cosmetics are several times higher than those of ordinary products, and the research and development process is tantamount to "dancing with shackles".

This has led to a corresponding rise in product prices. The price of a single-color blush eye shadow multi-purpose cream in RED CHAMBER is 119 yuan, and the price of 15ml liquid foundation is 218 yuan, which is equivalent to that of Estee Lauder liquid foundation. In addition, RED CHAMBER also has makeup items such as powder cake, loose powder, high-gloss repair, makeup brush, makeup remover and so on.

Different from the idea that general beauty brands choose lipstick, eye shadow and other low acceptance thresholds to open the market, RED CHAMBER’s first product is "liquid foundation for small bottles". The brand has said that it hopes to take the products with good makeup foundation as the origin and then present the possibility of other makeup effects. Its first product series also includes loose powder, powder cake, air cushion and other makeup products.

But perhaps beyond RED CHAMBER’s expectation, the series of makeup products it invested heavily in did not become an explosion, but a multi-purpose cream for lip and cheek eye shadow to make the brand remembered. Searching for RED CHAMBER in Xiaohongshu will find that many users are sharing how to apply a full-face makeup with a multi-purpose cream to simplify the makeup process and achieve a more natural makeup effect.

The monthly sales volume of RED CHAMBER Tmall Ship Store also shows that its sales volume of multi-purpose cream ranks first, with the purchase data exceeding 10,000, while the number of pre-makeup gel cream buyers ranked second is only over 800.

Although pure beauty is still a new concept in China, it has gradually gained capital attention in recent two years. Local beauty brands such as Yiyi, Lanlan, MOJA and YOKIA all received financing.

However, compared with the grand occasion of frequent financing news of beauty track in the previous two years, it is not easy for RED CHAMBER to refinance this time as the beauty market as a whole is recovering from weakness.

Clean Beauty first emerged from European and American markets, and its concept gradually evolved from the safety and non-toxicity of ingredients used to all aspects of the whole industrial chain, such as requiring brands to be animal-friendly, zero cruelty, environmentally friendly and sustainable development.

At first, the dilemma faced by some pure beauty brands in China is that market education is very difficult, because there is no clear definition of the concept and controversial components of pure beauty in the market. But now with the introduction of group standards, more standardized pure beauty brands will usher in spring.

On July 10th, 2022, the General Rules for Pure Beauty of Cosmetics initiated by MCL Huaxi Kou brand was certified by Guangdong Provincial Civil Affairs Department and published by Guangdong Cosmetics Society on the national group standard information platform.

"General Principles of Pure Beauty Cosmetics" officially defines pure beauty cosmetics for the first time: pure beauty cosmetics are cosmetics whose life cycle should be open, transparent and traceable, responsible for human health and safety, environmentally friendly and animal-friendly, and bear social responsibility and humanitarianism. This is also the first standard document for pure beauty in China.

But for pure beauty brands, standardized industry norms are only the first step. What is more difficult is how to make consumers accept the concept of "purity" and the high price that matches it.
