Market Synopsis

Cruelty-free cosmetics are enjoying considerable demand given the huge preference for comedogenic products around the world. People are becoming increasingly concerned about what ingredients their skincare products contain and how these affect their skin. Therefore, the preference for cosmetics with fewer toxic ingredients is surging among consumers. Consumers constantly track the composition of the cosmetics before buying them. Cruelty-free cosmetics contain no harmful chemicals, are mostly non-comedogenic, and are, therefore, used extensively for skincare routines.

Market Drivers:

Consumers are progressively becoming aware of the impact of their purchasing habits on the environment as well as society. There is high consciousness about which cosmetics to choose from and what raw materials and source origins have been used to develop these items. A number of laws as well as acts have been passed worldwide to ensure that companies do not conduct testing on animals. One example of such an act includes the Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, which was started by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which is a non-profit research & advocacy organization in the US. This law was passed by the Californian government, making it unlawful for the vendors to sell cosmetic products in the state that were tested on animals.

Following the COVID-19 outbreak, the global eCommerce industry has been responsible for half of the total sales of cruelty-free cosmetics. Ecommerce is now the most indispensable part of the cosmetics market, particularly since the advent of the pandemic. Physical outlets are not the first choice for the consumers anymore, especially given the lockdown, however; the e-commerce industry has helped maintained steady sales all over the world.

Top brands are teaming up with famous celebrities who endorse their cosmetics products and are spending heavily on advertisements to spark the consumers’ interest. Social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube are some of the top influencers, imparting knowledge to consumers about the various advantages of cruelty-free products.

Market Restraints:

A number of restraining factors are working against the market growth including the difficulty faced by brands in procuring organic ingredients to be included in their products. The less availability of chief raw chemicals raises challenges in operation work.

COVID 19 Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak as well as the subsequent lockdown has had a brutal effect on the cosmetics industry, with the temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities and the reduction in passenger traffic. Airlines are facing revenue losses following the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic due to travel bans and the overall economic downfall worldwide.

However, with the lockdown now being lifted and a major focus on curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus, players are now able to continue with their business and concentrate on strengthening their supply chains. This can mean a quicker recovery for the cruelty-free cosmetics market in the upcoming period.
