Covered in this report

Facial masks included in this report:

  • Sheet masks usually mean cloth or paper saturated in a high dosage of skincare ingredients for one-time use. Common sheet masks include non-woven cloth masks, silk masks, biocellulose masks, natural wood pulp masks and cotton masks.
  • Sleeping masks usually mean a gel/cream-based product that can be applied before sleep and left on overnight.
  • Rinse-off masks usually mean mud, cream, mousse or gelbased products that can be applied on the face and need to be washed off after 10-30 minutes.
  • Peel-off masks usually mean mud, cream or gel-based products that can be applied on the face and then shaped into a layer of mask after a few minutes.
  • Multi-steps masks usually have two or three steps of facial skincare, including cleanser/scrub and sheet mask.

“As a fast-growing market, the facial mask market is facing fierce competition from functional aspects to value-added emotional aspects. Consumers’ upgraded demands for mental relaxation provide an opportunity for brands to invest in a ritualised facial mask routine. Under the influence of the premiumisation trend, product innovation could be around sensitive skin such as medical masks.”
– Vicky Zhou, Research Analyst
