Uruguayos viajan a Argentina en busca de mejores precios en cosméticos

El mercado de cosméticos y fragancias en Uruguay enfrentó un año complicado en 2014. La inflación y la devaluación del peso golpearon con fuerza a un mercado basado en la importación de productos. En este escenario, el consumidor uruguayo no se mantuvo fiel a sus proveedores locales, y para hacerle frente al encarecimiento de estos ítems, modificaron su comportamiento de compra.

The Clooney Effect: How Far Can Men’s Grooming Go?

Nicole_TyrimouAnalyst Insight by Nicole Tyrimou - Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

View Nicole Tyrimou's profile on LinkedIn

While men’s grooming has become the media’s darling with buzz words such as “metrosexuals”, “mansome” and “spornosexuals” used to describe its consumers; in reality, the category has been one of stability, rather than one of rapid growth. Furthermore, according to Euromonitor International, even when including men’s fragrances in men’s grooming, total men’s sales currently account for 11% of total beauty. Men’s grooming’s average growth of 6% since 2008, which was sustained even during the peak of the economic downturn, means it remains the second fastest growing category within total beauty, and one of high interest to beauty players. This, however, raises the question - how far can men’s grooming go? Are the majority of men “Clooning” (buying and using beauty products to age well) as the media claim; or is this category destined to remain niche?

Et_header_616x100_group_online_innovation_seminars

Euromonitor International is pleased to partner and speak at in-cosmetics online conference Tuesday February 24, 2015 from 15:00-17:00 (CET).

This online conference will address the growing demand for sophisticated suncare products.
Skincare and colour cosmetic products are expected to offer UV protection, and suncare products need to include skin nourishment and anti-ageing ingredients. The challenges finished product manufacturers are facing range from formulating suncare with advanced & novel ingredients, sourcing new ingredients and creating advanced suncare formulations that can be added to skincare products and vice versa. New findings, such as the ageing impact of electro-magnetic radiation on the skin, are posing even greater demands on manufacturers and brands to develop a new generation of products that meet the needs of an increasingly educated and critical consumer.

Henkel and Hair Care: Reassessing Priorities in Western Europe

Oru_MohiuddinAnalyst Insight by Oru Mohuiddin - Senior Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

View Oru Mohiuddin's profile on LinkedIn

It has been reported that Henkel intends to prioritise hair care in its beauty portfolio. This is hardly unexpected, since hair care is the company’s largest beauty category and is expected to be the second biggest growth driver for global beauty and personal care from 2013 and 2018. However, what does “prioritising hair care” actually entail and what must Henkel do to achieve this goal? An answer to these questions can be broken into three parts:

  1. Henkel first needs to determine which markets to prioritise in its home turf of Western Europe.

  2. Then it needs to identify prospective markets outside Western Europe to either enter or increase its presence

  3. Thirdly, assessing if an acquisition would help Henkel reach its goal of developing a greater presence in hair care. If so, who would make a good strategic fit?

This article focuses on the first part – exploring market opportunities for Henkel in Western Europe.

Are Beauty Devices Changing the Rules in Skin Care?

Nicole_TyrimouAnalyst Insight by Nicole Tyrimou - Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

View Nicole Tyrimou's profile on LinkedIn

While beauty devices have been part of the beauty market for some time – from hair dryers to straighteners and laser hair removal – it has only been in the past five years that the category has expanded into skin care. Increasing demand for more sophisticated offerings in skin care in mature markets as well as skin care’s great dependence on the gadget-loving Asia Pacific region has helped beauty devices garner more attention in skin care.

Facial cleansers – the entry-level category

The acquisition of Clarisonic by L’Oréal in 2011 cemented facial cleansing devices as the entry-level skin care category. With design based on the principle of the electric toothbrush, their popularity has grown for three key reasons. Their high-performance characteristics cater to consumers’ desire for greater efficacy and more specialised products in skin care. Their claims going beyond thorough cleansing to improving skin quality by reducing the appearance of pores and skin tone adds value for consumers. Lastly, the major media buzz and beauty bloggers’ endorsements of facial cleaners have elevated their image to a “fashionable” or even “cult” beauty product for beauty enthusiasts.

Industria de belleza y cuidado personal en Chile se mantiene fuerte pese a baja económica

Pese al bajo crecimiento de la economía chilena en los últimos meses, la venta de productos de belleza y cuidado personal mantiene un crecimiento sano de alrededor de 7%. Esto se debe en parte a la venta de productos de cuidado personal que se encuentran dentro de la canasta básica de los consumidores, como el jabón y champú, así como a un nuevo grupo de consumidoras en Chile que tienen un mayor ingreso disponible y un mayor interés por cuidar su apariencia física. Dentro de este panorama también hay algunas categorías que han visto bajas en sus ventas, sin embargo hemos observado algunos movimientos de empresas que indican que están apostando por este mercado en Chile en el largo plazo
