Report Summary

While the impact on value sales is limited, due to the essential nature of these products, the cost-of-living crisis poses an opportunity for more value-led own-label NPD, as private-label allergy innovation remained low in 2023 and skin condition launches are dominated by prestige products.

The increasing experience of skin conditions and allergies will depend on the mitigation of climate change. If adequate action is taken, experience will not rise as expected, which could hinder value growth in the category long term. Brands can stem this threat by working to improve consumer loyalty.

As experience levels increase and consumers become more engaged in both categories, the potential for disruptive brands to enter increases. Allergy brands can take a non-medical, aesthetic approach to allergy remedies, while skin disorder brands can move into gifting and extend into categories beyond skincare (e.g. colour cosmetics).

Key Issues Covered in this Report

  • How many people experience skin conditions and allergies.
  • Consumer behaviours related to skin conditions and allergies.
  • Opportunities for brands to disrupt the skin conditions and allergy remedies categories.
  • The impact of climate change on the demand for allergy remedies.
  • How brands can lead with authority to appeal to those experiencing skin conditions.
