Raising Demand for Sustainable Cosmetics and Personal Care Products
Natural and Organic Cosmetics and Personal Care products are continuing to grow and inspire customer purchasing decisions. New product developments in the personal care industry globally are focusing on natural ingredients, especially in skincare, with “free from” chemical claims becoming more apparent. This trend has also something to do with people embracing a more healthy and sustainability-focused lifestyle.
The global natural and organic market is valued at $11.5Bn and expect to grow at a CAGR of 11.1% up to 2026, according to PR Newswire. Such strong growth is being driven by consumer awareness on the use of synthetic chemicals and the increasing importance of environmentally viable products.
Transparency surrounding sourcing methods, production, ingredients and overall sustainability practices is key to maintaining loyalty and repeat business from existing and future customers.
