Beauty & Personal Care launches in solid formats are currently focused on promoting eco-friendly alternatives and tackling plastic waste concerns. In this area, opportunities exist for brands to build trust through transparency and attract eco-conscious consumers who want to make a difference and are decided to live a sustainable life.
ACCORDING TO MINTEL THERE ARE 3 KEY THINGS YOU NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN POSITIONING YOUR SOLID COSMETIC PRODUCTS:
SOLID COSMETICS IS A NICHE CATEGORY BUT A GROWING TREND
1% of global BPC launches in the 12 months to April 2021 came in bar/solid format; niche but a jump on five years prior. Although shampoos are the most common solid cosmetics products, we can find a wide variety of personal care products in solid form.
ECO CLAIMS ARE THE KEY
73% of recent bar/solid format BPC launches feature ethical/environmental claims - higher than the 41% for non-bar/solid formats.
BAR/SOLID FORMATS HAVE SEEN THE FASTEST GROWTH IN EUROPE
Solid shampoo is most active in Europe (vs other regions) and has also seen a big uptick in innovation in the region over the past five years – now accounting for 6% of shampoo launches over the past 12 months.
