Topics Analysed in this Report

  • The consumer’s primary skin concerns and how this correlates with facial skincare usage.

  • How launch activity compares to consumer interest in select facial skincare ingredients.
  • How and where brands should communicate ingredient information to consumers.

Current Outlook: Facial Skincare Ingredient Trends

The cost of living crisis continues to squeeze budgets. This will drive savvy shopping behaviours and encourage more consumers to partake in ‘dupe culture’. This will benefit private-label brands if they can meet the demand for premium ingredients and formats, while prestige beauty brands will have to go further to demonstrate value.

  • Facial skincare ingredient trends: 80% of UK adults have used at least one facial skincare product in the last 12 months.

Opportunities: Facial Skincare Ingredients Trends

Help consumers navigate ingredients and formats

Consumers are more educated on ingredients than ever before, however, many are not using the correct products or ingredients for their skin. Guidance around the use of basic skincare products is therefore needed, on-pack guidance would appeal, as packaging is the most used source for ingredient information.

  • Facial skincare ingredients opportunity: 30% of adults with dry skin are not using cleansing products appropriate for their skin type.

Innovate to improve the efficacy of ingredients

As the facial skincare market is becoming more saturated with products calling out hero actives, brands will have to find other ways to stand out. Stressing superior efficacy would appeal to results-driven consumers. This is a particular opportunity for premium brands to demonstrate their value as many consumers are opting for lower-cost products that provide similar ingredients and benefits.

  • Facial skincare ingredients opportunity: 31% of facial skincare users would choose one product over another if it contained ingredients that can penetrate deeper into the skin.
