"The desire for convenience and added health benefits in sun care resonates across regions." - Mintel


Healthy skin ☼ Glowy look ☼ Touchless touch-up

Consumers want to have it all: looking good, feeling good, and a no-fuss way to make it happen. With more consumers seeking out SPF as part of their skincare routines, and makeup's big comeback, hybrid, on-the-go multi-taskers that make a fabulous look easy also have the opportunity to make a big impact. Consumer data from Mintel shows:

Brands have an opportunity to help consumers achieve a short- and long-term glow with a shimmering powder that also offers a powerful, invisible, SPF re-up. There is an added bonus in hygienic, touchless components so that we can re-up on the go and feel good about it. Consider these methods for how brands can adapt to meet the market:

  • Make it easy to glow on-the-go.
    Consumers are seeking out SPF, and brands would do well to consider their consumer's lifestyle when crafting the experience. "Make reapplication a breeze with convenient, on-the go packaging and formulas that pair well with makeup," says Mintel.
  • Bring skin health to the healthy-looking glow.
    Add sun care to help consumers keep their glow long-term. "Position sun protection as a key step in a wellness routine. A healthy glow can be
    achieved without the damage of the sun's rays, and sun protection can help boost skin appearance," says Mintel. “Win over shoppers who are wary of barriers to easy sunscreen application by tapping into hybrid trends and aligning sun protection as the final step in a skincare regimen."
