Mintel Report Shares New Skincare Trends

The outlook is bright for multifunctional, natural, and dry-skin specific products. These and other skincare trends are revealed in market researcher Mintel’s new report, Facial Skincare. Here are a few recommendations to keep in stock at your spa or salon:

  1. Multifunctional products provide more benefits and save consumers time and money (four out of 10 consumers want multi-tasking products according to Mintel’s research).
  2. Products with ‘natural’ and ‘free from’ claims appeal to consumers (25 percent of consumers in the report say they look for products that are ‘free from’ certain ingredients).
  3. Dry skin is a top concern for clients, who tend to look for cleansers and treatments that hydrate and smooth (more men and women want products that improve the texture of skin).
