Key Issues Covered in this Report

  • The impact of the cost-of-living crisis on sustainability as a purchase priority.
  • Consumer expectations of a sustainability beauty/grooming brand and what actions differentiate.
  • How brands can ensure marketing and products respond to the sustainable behaviours practised by consumers, such as recycling and water usage monitoring.
  • How launch activity compares to consumer interest in and use of refillable BPC products.
  • Consumer attitudes towards the rise in sustainability claims and how these impact purchase decisions.

Sustainability in Beauty and Personal Care – Current Landscape

As ethical and environmental claims have grown in prevalence, they have become a consumer expectation in the UK beauty and personal care market. Almost two-thirds of consumers think a beauty or grooming brand needs to use sustainable packaging in order to be considered sustainable.

However, during the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, cost has become a priority for consumers. Brands using sustainable claims to prove a product’s value, for example cheaper refill packs, will stand out in the market.

Sustainable Beauty and Personal Care – Innovation Opportunities

The solid format has entered the mainstream in beauty and personal care. These are a good sustainable option as they require less packaging and remove the need for plastic. However, consumers are hesitant to change their grooming routines and embrace solids. Brands adding a point of difference beyond sustainability claims can ease consumers into using the format. For example, highlighting how these products are ideal for travel, or minimising bathroom clutter would appeal to consumers.
