Store Brands Skincare device market is primed for growth According to the March “Beauty Devices — US” report from global market researcher Mintel, the skincare device market is primed for growth, as women are motivated to purchase products that offer convenience and promise professional results. Premium Beauty Beauty devices still have room for growth in the U.S. but face many challenges, says Mintel US women are most likely to associate cleansing (44%) and exfoliating (55%) benefits with skincare devices, as opposed to topical skincare products.

Do consumers know what they are getting when they buy organic food? A study from market researcher Mintel casts doubt on consumers’ understanding of the category.

Household and Personal Products Industry Form & Function “Consumers are looking for packaging that helps them in one way or another and eases their personal care and beauty chores,” said Viktorija Gnatoka, global packaging analyst, Mintel, Chicago. “There is no doubt that in the beauty market, aesthetic appeal of packaging also matters and serves as a great selling point. However, when consumers bring products home and start using them is when they really evaluate and appreciate the various attributes of packaging—such as easy to open, easy to use or apply, easy to reclose or easy to recycle.” Specialty Food Association Grain-Free Diet Emerges from Gluten-Free Trend A 2014 Mintel consumer survey found that 43 percent of Americans said they plan to eat less processed foods in the coming year.

Gluten-free sriracha? In late 2014, Mintel reported that gluten-free foods had surged 63%. “Overall, the gluten-free food market continues to thrive off those who must maintain a gluten-free diet for medical reasons, as well as those who perceive gluten-free foods to be healthier or more natural,” says Amanda Topper, food analyst at Mintel. “The category will continue to grow in the near term, especially as FDA regulations make it easier for consumers to purchase gluten-free products and trust the manufacturers who make them. Despite strong growth over the last few years, there is still innovation opportunity, especially in food segments that typically contain gluten.” Beauty Store Business Seasonality Is the Latest Key Beauty Trend “Our research shows that consumers are becoming increasingly aware of–and concerned about–how changes in the environment are affecting the condition of their skin and hair. Already, beauty manufacturers have started to go beyond taking simple seasonal approaches geared to public holidays or gifting occasions and instead are taking on the elements within their product innovation,” said Jane Henderson, global president of Mintel’s beauty and personal care division.
