Millennials Expect Their Grocers To Carry Natural And Organic Personal Care Products

With demand growing for natural and organic personal care products, consumers, especially Millennials, expect these products to be available at their favorite grocery stores. While Millennials do not like going to specialty stores to buy personal care products, many would go to the nearest health food store if their favorite retailer did not sell the natural products they seek, according to Wally's Natural. Despite the growing demand, retailers sometimes cannot distinguish between products labeled as natural and those classified as organic.

Shiseido Works With Microsoft To Create Virtual Makeup App

Shiseido partnered with Microsoft to create Telebeauty, a software designed to apply virtual makeup to a user's video image while taking part in a teleconference. Women using the app can choose from four palettes, natural, trend, cool, and pretty, before joining the teleconference call. Designed to distinguish between the user's face and the background, Telebeauty scans the user's face and adjusts the skin tone, and covers pores, dark spots, and pimples with a “digital beauty balm.”

Men Outspend Women On Facial Skincare Products In India

In India, men spend almost 10 percent more on body washes and 7 percent more on face washes and scrubs than women do every month, according to the report, “Target Group Index,” by IMRB International. Men from the 18‒24 age group spend around 15 percent more on moisturizers and 6 percent more on conditioners, compared with women from the same age group. Data from Euromonitor International revealed men's grooming accounts for only 10 percent of the overall beauty market in the country; however, it is growing faster at 20‒25 percent. From the current $600 million, the market is forecast to grow to more than $1 billion by 2020, according to Argus CMPO CEO Hema Aushat.
