An Overview of Facial Skincare Trends in Germany

According to Mintel’s women’s skincare report Germany, brands will keep launching active ingredient focused facial skincare products as social media continues to drive trends, with 50% of 16 to 24-year-olds seeking inspiration on social platforms.

With social media offering a vast variety of information on different products, brands have the opportunity to educate consumers around concern-ingredient connection and can encourage them to commit to comprehensive routines, regardless of skin concern.

Facial Skincare Formats and Ingredients Trends in Germany: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Consumer Interest in Facial Skincare Formats & Ingredients: A clear link between skin issues and ingredient interest can be established, as 72% of German consumers with any skin concern actively look for products with certain ingredients.
  • Educating Skincare Users: Many consumers are unclear on the specifics of skincare format uses – 63% of users with dry skin don’t seek out hyaluronic acid, despite the ingredient’s ubiquity. Brands should take responsibility for educating consumers, using product packaging and social media partnerships to do so.
  • Consumer Behaviour in the German Skincare Industry: Even amid economic challenges, many facial skincare shoppers prioritise active ingredients and long-lasting results over price. The German skincare consumer is informed and discerning, which makes them open to innovation, but also means that brands need to do more to prove product efficacy to stand out in a saturated category.

German Skincare Industry Market Forecast

  • Sustainability matters to 67% of German consumers. To encourage usage of eco-friendly BPC products, brands should emphasise transparency to navigate the sustainability balancing act amidst consumer scepticism.
  • Brands that stay alert of other regulatory legislation, such as the impending restriction of retinol in skincare, will be able to keep consumers engaged, ideally while striving to improve product stability and efficacy.
