From Consumers to Dermatologists
Google’s 2017 Beauty Trend Report announced that year as the “Year of Vegan Skin Care” only to grow further into 2018 and onwards. With consumers increasingly interested in the effects products and their ingredients have on their bodies, not only are demands changing, but dermatologists are weighing-in with their own take on the benefits of holistic natural ingredients.
To paraphrase some of these: Vegan ingredients are naturally simple, ideal for sensitive skin, highlighting skins’ beauty by adding care and moisture to problem solve, where more complicated ingredients may cause discomfort.
It’s no secret veganism has become huge over the last few years. From the report: Searches for vegan skin care have increased 83% year to year in the US, with 13x the number of searches in the US over France. Meanwhile, of the three targetted markets reviewed, almost no representation of the trend exists amongst Japanese consumers. Organisations from Glamour Magazine, to PETA, and independent blogs to Google are on trend making recommendations for the newest, green and vegan alternatives to long term health and cosmetics products. Even for meat and dairy eaters, there seems a draw to know what we’re putting on our skin. It simply come down to knowledge, ethics, and comfort.
Speaking of ethics, data from Market Research Future predicts a 6.1% increase in cruelty-free products alone from 2017-2023. Whether interested in animal rights or not, consumers are increasingly well informed, able to access information to fuel their decisions, and reaching daily for ethical life choices.
As with most things, the choice ultimately resides in our wallets, and no matter what outside packaging attracts you, listed ingredients, or whatever your purchase pleasure… it’s a great time to be interested in vegan cosmetics products.
