It seems like natural cosmetics are everywhere.
You see it with big brand names starting new lines of natural cosmetics and skincare products. Boutique cosmetics shops popping all over offering artisanally-made natural cosmetics. Even fairs and markets are dedicated to these kinds of products only.
What is it all about?
It’s not a secret that consumers are gradually shifting from regular cosmetic products to their natural equivalents. The yearly sales numbers of natural cosmetics prove that this is not just a trend. Every year sales numbers of natural skincare grow both in numbers and stake.
Here are some of them –
- “Natural cosmetics sales surpassed 2 billion units in 2018, totaling a market value worth US$ 36 billion in sales for 2019.”
- “A new study by FMI forecasts that natural cosmetics market will grow at 4.8% in 2019.”
- “Consumer preference for organic and natural products is no more limited to food & beverages. With natural cosmetics sales surging in recent years, they could account for over two-thirds of the global revenues in 2019.”
These are astounding numbers.
It’s clear that consumers are increasingly aware of the products they consume, especially when it deals with products meant to get into their body or rubbed on top of their skin.
