Report Summary

The intimate hygiene product market in Thailand has seen significant growth, ranking fifth in the number of launches in APAC over the past five years. As the intimate wash category matures, brands can expand into skincare for intimate areas, particularly to address Thai consumers’ concerns over darker skintones and undesired texture. This presents an opportunity for intimate care brands to increase their market penetration in intimate skincare, shifting focus from the competitive hygiene category.

Additionally, opportunities exist in intimate care products developed to target issues caused by shaving or hair removal, especially among Gen Z consumers who favour intimate hair removal and often rely on at-home solutions.

Meanwhile, as sexual wellness becomes a less taboo topic in Thailand, there is potential for brands to increase the use of intimate hygiene products around sexual occasions.

This report looks at the following areas:

  • The trends impacting intimate care in Thailand
  • Consumers’ concerns about intimate areas
  • The use of intimate care products and usage occasions
  • Purchasing factors for intimate care and interest in product claims

Capture growth opportunities in intimate care by providing skin-enhancing benefits, caring for skin during hair removal and catering to sexual wellness occasions.
