The Relationship Between Fashion and Beauty

Fashion brands are increasingly interested in expanding their beauty offerings beyond fragrances in an effort to both provide a more accessible entry price point for consumers reluctant to spend on luxury apparel and accessories and to expand market share through additional offerings in established markets. While some brands have been successful with this approach, others have seen their beauty offerings fall by the wayside.

The Impact of Russia’s Sanctions on Global Beauty Players

Ildiko-SzalaiAnalyst Insight by Ildiko Szalai - Senior Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

Thus far, Russia has not introduced direct sanctions against any multinational beauty players or their products, but the ongoing tense geo-political situation in Russia and the Ukraine is expected to negatively impact a number of companies’ performances in 2014 and beyond. Category growth prospects are also expected to be dented in the short-to-medium-term future in Eastern Europe’s largest and third-largest markets, Russia and the Ukraine, respectively. Companies with significant operations in Russia, such as L’Oréal, Unilever and Oriflame, have already announced plans to mitigate the unstable environment; however, the full impact of the situation is largely out of their control.

During September 9th and 10th, the first edition of In Cosmetics in Brazil was held in São Paulo. In Cosmetics is an international fair dedicated exclusively to the sector of raw material and ingredients for beauty and personal care products.

Brazil has the potential to grow in Premium Beauty and Personal Care

During my presentation about what we can expect from the premium market of beauty and personal care, I pointed out some factors that show the existing growth potential for the market in Brazil. The increase in credit to consumers, primarily through increased issuance of credit cards, has driven the premium market, since now many consumers can access and pay in installments to purchase premium beauty and personal care products, which were previously inaccessible. Another factor that contributes to the expansion of consumption of premium beauty products and personal care is linked to the fact that many new brands have recently entered the country, offering a wider range of products to consumers. Brands like Urban Decay, Benefit, Bare Minerals, among others, are now available to any consumer in Brazil, either through internet retailing or brick and mortar stores.

The fact that its forecast 4% CAGR will make the Middle East and Africa the third fastest-growing region in percentage terms between 2013 and 2018, accounting for nearly 10% of global growth over this period, is good news for beauty manufacturers. However, the question is whether it will be better news for local businesses or multinational players, as we are now seeing a growing tussle between the two camps? Despite the attractiveness of the market, it is not a straightforward situation for Western beauty players as there are a number of inherent challenges that need to be grappled with to make their ventures a success.

View Nicole Tyrimou's profile on LinkedIn

Natural skin care has been generating a buzz in the industry for some time now. An increase in both the availability and popularity of natural and nature-inspired skin care has led to an increasing number of players enter the category. While growth in the category has been driven on the one hand by continued demand for more skin-friendly formulations, on the other hand premium and pharmacy brands with natural credentials are also fuelling interest in the natural arena. Furthermore, increased consumer familiarity with certain harsh chemicals has given rise to many products with “free-from” claims, which have more tangible perceived benefits for consumers.

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.
