Global Cosmetic Industry spoke with beauty insiders to highlight recent skin care and sun care trends and recent ingredient launches in those spaces.
Menopausal Skin Care
Christine Meier, digital marketing manager, Mibelle Group Biochemistry, says, “One big trend is menopausal skin care; skin care products, brands and ingredients focusing specifically on the special needs of the skin of menopausal women. Menopause is shifting out of taboo and into the spotlight as women worldwide seek a deeper understanding of changes during this time, carving out plenty of opportunity for beauty and wellness industries to support, educate and empower.”
Meier continues, “We launched very successfully NovoRetin, a plant-based alternative to retinol. It is based on mastic and serves as an ideal plant-based retinol alternative, providing both strong anti-aging effects and exceptional benefits for acne-prone skin. Recently, we also launched CALMandrin, an upcycled and sustainable ingredient to combat inflammaging by notably improving the signs of aging, as well as soothing reddened and inflamed skin.”
