Summary of the Global Skin Care Products Industry

The global skin care products value chain consists of raw material suppliers, skincare products manufacturers, end-use industries, and distribution channels. Over the past few years, rising awareness about the different advantages of skin care products has resulted in increased demand. Moreover, natural and organic products have become a major segment in the global cosmetics and wellness market. Additionally, increasing awareness about the harmful effects of synthetic products has led to the rise in the demand for organic products. This rising demand has subsequently led manufacturers in the global skin care products market to focus more on R&D and product innovations. Lastly, the rise of online market platforms, where customers can purchase a wide range of products from any part of the globe, has been one of the principal reasons for the increase in accessibility for skin care products.

Customers are demanding for products that do not harm their skin, nor the environment; as well as products that are free from modified ingredients and natural.
