The growing demand for anti-aging, and moisturizing creams remains a major growth driver in the personal care ingredients market. According to the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) directory, glycerine remains the most in-demand personal care ingredient around the world. Glycerine is an odourless, viscous, and odourless substance which is sweet in taste. The substance is hygroscopic in nature, and remains highly in demand in the cosmetic care industry due to moisturizing properties. The substance provides smoothness, lubrication, and humectant properties to the skin, making it ideal for working women, which are under constant pressure from external environment factors, and remains a key ingredient in skin care, soaps, and hair care products. The rising demand for personal care, thanks to growing disposable income, and rising demand for natural products remains a key driver for growth in the personal care ingredients market. Glycerine remains highly effective as an ingredient for denaturant, solvent, humectant, and perfuming applications.
Demand for Glycerine Continues to Shift Towards Capric Triglyceride
Capric Triglyceride, a derivation of coconut oil, and glycerine is a clearer liquid, with viscous properties. It contains fatty acids, which are important for skin replenishment, and resistant to moisture loss. The ingredient is also effective for applications like dispersing agent, emollient, and is suited for oily, and sensitive skin. The product is in growing use for lotions, shampoos, cleansers, and make-up products. The growing demand for natural ingredients remains a major driver for growth in the personal care ingredients market. The rise of social media, and subsequent, rise in consumer awareness about various cosmetic products remains a key driver for growth for the natural ingredient derivatives like Capric Triglyceride. The INCI directory reports that it is second-most in-demand ingredient for personal care industry globally.
Growing Demand for UV Protection Remains a Prospect for Growth
According to the World Health Organization, one in three cancers are diagnosed as skin cancers. Moreover, depleting ozone layer will likely exacerbate environmental conditions and likely pose more danger to the global environment, and personal well-being in the near future. The exposure to UV radiation remains a major challenge driving growth of skin cancer globally. This requires new measures to protect individuals from solar radiation, and growing skin care products promise additional protection for individuals. A substance like Dimethicone promises major growth prospect for the skin-care industry as it is widely used as a skin protectant, and hair conditioner. Moreover, it has anti-foaming properties, with prevention. The ICNI directory reports that it is third-largest selling ingredient in the global cosmetic care industry. The rise in demand for dimethicone, and rising threat to UV radiation will drive growth of products like lotions, creams, shampoo, bath soap, and hair care products.
