Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

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

Own-label, one-a-day allergy relief tablets look to have been a victim of their own success – driving down spend and purchase frequency. Indications are that allergies are rising, but the forecast for allergy relief remains bleak unless interest can be invigorated with alternative formats or enhanced product positioning. When it comes to skin conditions, rising stress levels are elevating experience of these, but the category needs to catch up with solutions that promote mental health and wellbeing, as well as treat or manage flare-ups.
