Transformative Trends in Wet Wipe Formulations: A Dual Focus on Skin Health and Sustainability

Skin Care Trends and Wet Wipes: Manifestations of Change?

The global skin care market is mainly dominated by facial care and body care. Skin care comes in various formats with creams, lotions and the serums leading way. These formats have all a common theme of moisturization and self-care. Top growing claims in skin care over last 5 years are vegan/ no animal ingredients, sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging. We see a shift in the skin care market, leading us into three key trends; Clear beauty and conscious consumerism, stress care which enables wellbeing and ‘Cleanical’ which marries science with clean ingredients. It would be fascinating if we can conjugate these trends with wet wipe technology and make wet wipes a leading skin care format.
