Dry Shampoos Succeed through a Beauty Positioning

Anaïs_MirvalAnalyst Insight by Anais Mirval - Ingredients Analyst

Convenience is an underlying trend in most beauty and personal care categories. In hair care, consumers are looking for products that are easy to use and can help them save time. The recent success of products that have been around for a long time like dry shampoos and the development of practical mousse colourants is proof of the enduring popularity of the convenience trend in hair care. But, as hair care continues its alignment with beauty, manufacturers will have to focus their message on the glamorous side of the business.

Against a backdrop of consumers looking to improve their general wellness and appearance, the beauty industry is gradually transforming to become more health orientated. As a result, cosmetics companies are increasingly focusing their innovation efforts in this new direction.

In responding to these demands, new product development is steadily becoming ever more concentrated on the capability of addressing topical health conditions experienced by consumers. This requires sophisticated technology to offer efficacy as well as to combine beauty with therapeutic solutions. Most commonly, these products are known as cosmeceuticals, and are generally prevalent in the areas of hair and skin care.

HBA Global 2014 Recap: L’Occitane's Success in Brazil

To successfully enter a new country, beauty companies need to be aware of the retailing and economic conditions as well as the needs of the consumers in that country. A successful example of a beauty company entering a new market is L’Occitane’s entrance into Brazil. In order to compete with local beauty players and avoid the high import tax in Brazil, L’Occitane created a new line of locally manufactured products called L’Occitane au Bresil. The products mirror the success of Brazil’s own Natura, which offers products made with local ingredients, by using indigenous plants in the products.

Three Challenges Answered by Procter and Gamble’s Divestment Strategy


Procter and Gamble’s decision to divest 100 brands falls in line with the company’s mantra of efficiency and innovation but also aims to answer three key challenges the company is facing. First, by focusing on key brands only, Procter and Gamble is attempting to stay relevant in developed economies where markets are often saturated. Second, P&G has fallen by the wayside in emerging markets and the divestment is a way to focus more attention to a select few brands in these economies. Third, the key brands P&G are left will compete with local players in select markets.

Using Brand Loyalty to Tailor Product Offerings in Beauty and Personal Care


Investigating consumer's brand loyalty provides insight on how a company can tailor offerings to the needs of specific buyers. For example, Euromonitor International's recent survey on apparel, beauty and grooming found that in facial care, 50 percent of consumers stick to one trusted brand but in nail polish 55 percent of consumers switch between brands on a regular basis. Looking at a brand's market performance highlights these results. For example in 2008-2013, skin care brand L'Oréal Paris expanded its market value share by 50 basis points while L'Oréal's Maybelline line remained flat over the same period.

The HBA Global conference took place in New York City’s Javits Center from 10-12 June. Digital beauty was a big theme at the conference as speakers talked about how growth in e-commerce, digital products, and social media has impacted the beauty industry.

Consumers Going Online to Buy Beauty Products

Online beauty sales are outpacing the beauty industry according to Diane Miles, Operating Partner at TSG Consumer Partners. Data from Euromonitor International shows that sales of beauty and personal care through internet retailing grew by a 15% CAGR from 2008 to 2013. In contrast, total global beauty and personal care sales grew by just 4% in the same time period. Ms Miles said that one in four beauty shoppers make beauty purchases online. Fifteen years ago, women purchased prestige beauty products from department stores in shopping malls and mass products from drugstores.  Now, consumers have a wider range of options, including internet retailing, infomercials and home shopping, speciality retailers like Sephora, and subscription beauty boxes like Birchbox. Consumers are not just buying online but going online to obtain product information and compare prices. Avid beauty shoppers are also using smartphones and tablets to research beauty topics, sometimes even while they are in stores, a melding of modern and traditional shopping habits.
