Non-Toxic, No Chemicals Natural is one of the most sought-after skincare benefits by consumers, especially those with babies Natural/organic ingredients is among the top three highest priority benefits for consumers of skincare products. A significant difference is further observed between shoppers who have 0-4 years old children living with them as compared to those with no children (58% against 50% who consider the benefit to be essential or high priority). This is explained by both baby’s immature immune system and the fact that, unlike in adults, baby skin care products are usually applied to most of their body surface. The result is a more intense movement towards natural, organic versions, which are usually perceived as safer and healthier alternatives by consumers. Natural and organic are top priority in consumer choices of skincare products Source: Datamonitor Consumer Survey, 20135 Global: skincare shoppers who said the following skincare product benefits were essential or high priority (%), 2013 Consumers with 0-4 years old children living at home with them Insight On-trend innovation Take-outs Consumers with no children living at home with them However, consumers have a wrong mindset of what constitutes a natural product Many consumers tend to believe that natural and/or organic products are safe for their children’s health. What most of them still don’t know is that 100% natural does not always mean safe as they cannot be properly preserved for a long period of time without microbiological contamination and often require refrigeration or expensive one-shot packaging. This means a real need for brands and marketing personnel to more strongly invest in consumer education as to demystify that natural is always the healthiest and safest alternative 52% 55% 60% 60% 61% 70% Suitability for sensitive/hypoallergenic skin types "Natural"/ organic ingredients Sun protection benefits (e.g. UV filters) Females Males 42% 48% 53% 53% 52% 65% Access the full report
