Eco-Friendliness and Sustainability

Like many other industries, the cosmetics has and is continuing to lean more towards eco-friendliness and sustainability. This means consumers are looking for cosmetics products that are made organically or from raw materials that don’t play a role in harming the environment. Companies invest a lot of money in research and innovation in products not made from harmful materials, that are sustainable and are not lacking in quality. Vegan products are very common now.

Part of sustainability is recycling, so consumer choices will come down to things such as the type of packaging the product has and whether it is recyclable or reusable. Then comes labeling, which is important in terms of transparency. Make sure all the information about how the product is made available.

Social Media in High Definition

Social media is becoming effective in helping consumers make purchase decisions. People with a good eye can see through the Photoshop effects a social media campaign uses in their pictures. It is important that if products are going to be promoted in action, then they should work as they are shown. This is where professionals such as make-up artists come along. Many have gathered strong social media followings on Instagram and Youtube, so it is important to form strong relationships with them.

Men

Cosmetics for just women is a thing of the past. The trend towards more men using cosmetics products has risen. Products for men such as balms and shaving creams are more popular than ever. Men’s grooming products are something to consider, as it is a growing market.
