MARKET OVERVIEW

1.1 Definition and scope of study

The organic cosmetics market represents a sub-segment of the broader cosmetics market. Any substance used to cleanse, moisturize or modify a person's skin, hair, nails or teeth, is considered a cosmetic product.

There are two categories of cosmetics

  • Beauty products: e.g., make-up, perfume, skin cream
  • Care products: e.g. shampoo, soap, deodorant

Organic skin care and cosmetic products do not contain chemicals such as parabens, phthalates, aluminum salts and petrochemicals, which are potentially harmful to an individual's health. However, in the United Kingdom, there is a legal treatment that distinguishes between the terms organic', natural' or bio', although there are mainly conventional standards, as we shall see below

For a cosmetic to be considered organic, it must contain at least 95% certified organic ingredients. [ Soil Association ]. Public opinion, on the other hand, generally identifies a cosmetic as organic if it contains ingredients derived from nature and unprocessed.

Despite the macroeconomic circumstances and the recent political turmoil in the country, the UK market for beauty and personal care products continues to grow. With increased competition: new brands are emerging relatively quickly and new products are launched every year.

In the United Kingdom, the market has grown substantially in recent years, with both production and exports increasing significantly. More specifically, the organic sector is booming, with growing awareness of the harmful effects of chemicals on the human body. Not only has the organic cosmetics market grown by 23% in 2019, but it has also experienced substantial double-digit growth over the last decade. The country now ranks seventh in the world in sales of organic products [ 20 20 Organic Beauty ]  

This expansion is occurring both on the demand side, with consumers turning to natural and organic products, and on the supply side, with companies offering more and more opportunities for natural products, from food to personal care
