Mintel’s beauty and personal care team is lucky enough to see new beauty product launches from across the globe on a daily basis, so we’ve hunted down the latest innovations shaking up the beauty industry and shared them with you. This month is all about suncare and sparkling skin, but we also look at period-friendly skincare and hydration-adaptive body moisturisers.
