Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by David Tyrrell, a leading analyst in the Beauty & Personal Care sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

Clean beauty marketing has gone mainstream. Broadly, clean simply means the ingredients do no harm – they can be natural, organic or synthetic. A majority of US consumers place clean ingredients into the natural/organic group, and this link between clean and natural goes across generations (59% for iGens, born between 1995 and 2007, and 55% for Baby Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964).
