Trends

Related trends for Aloe Vera products relate to:

  • Natural, Botanical/Herbal
  • Water-free

The number of ‘natural’ NPD launches containing Aloe Vera in cosmetics and personal care products has risen since 2011. Given its documented humectancy, Aloe Vera can be used topically as a skin moisturiser. Interest in Aloe Vera will likely continue to rise in response to consumer demand for natural ingredients. There is also a rising trend for ‘water free’ products, where water is omitted from production - addressing the issue of global water scarcity.
