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

Three Key Drivers for Innovation in Beauty in 2015

With the new year underway, it is time to reflect back on the most important innovation drivers which influenced the beauty market in 2014 and are expected to dominate new product development for the industry in the coming months; namely product customisation, internet-born brands and Asia’s impact on beauty innovation.

Customisation in beauty continues to drive innovation

Customisation has already been a prevailing trend for the industry during the last several years, driven by a greater demand for higher-efficacy alternatives and more personalised offerings; from completely bespoke skin care and foundation, to products that target specific consumer groups (men, children, over 60s) and those that promote specialised functions (for eyes or neck, for example) and concern-based solutions.

Analysing the Recent Success of Cien Q10 Beauty Cream

Surprising findings from a study conducted by the Spanish main consumer organization: Lidl´s face cream “Cien Q10” is more effective than other brands up to ten times the price.

After reaching the top position in this quality ranking, Cien Q10 became a complete sell-out in Spain. Even a few months after the publication of this study, Spanish women still struggle to find the product, which vanishes from the shelves after every replacement.

Opportunities and Relationships Between Personal Accessories and Beauty and Personal Care

Put together, personal accessories and beauty and personal care sales will exceed US$1 trillion in 2015. The two industries are related in more ways than one, not least because of both targeting similar consumer profiles. Although leading brands such as L'Oréal, Gillette or Louis Vuitton are unlikely to venture outside their core industries, brands such as Avon and Tiffany & Co might be ideal candidates to expand their relatively small presence in personal accessories and beauty and personal care respectively.

The Rise of Social E-Beauty

Nicole_TyrimouAnalyst Insight by Nicole Tyrimou - Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

November is arguably the most important month of the year for internet retailers and brands alike. There is “singles day” in China, which reportedly generated US$9 billion in sales this year, and, of course, the shopping weekend mayhem that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday at the end of the month. Despite Black Friday and Cyber Monday principally being a US phenomenon, with revenues reported at US$1.3 billion this year, they have been expanding into Europe and, specifically, the UK, which has the highest penetration for beauty e-commerce among mature markets at 9.1% in Tweet-This2013, while the global average remains below 5%.

However, the phenomenal rise of social media platforms that are hoping to turn their popularity into a commercial opportunity means that they are looking at the beauty industry as a good entry point for social commerce.
