Region : Global | Report ID: FBI107928 | Status : Ongoing



Antiseptic & exfoliating property-based cleansing gels and lotions are highly beneficial in treating users’ acne skin conditions. The increasing prevalence of skin acne and marks coupled with growing awareness regarding the skincare benefits of such products is mainly driving the anti-acne cleanser market growth. Nowadays, women and teenage girls are concerned about their physical appearance & skin looks and prefer advanced formulation-based skin cleaning products to maintain their beauty for a longer duration. Hence, the rising demand for innovative skin acne cleansing products is accelerating product revenues globally.  

As per a survey conducted over American men and women aged 18 years & above by the National Library of Medicine, Government of the U.S., American women aged up to 60 years are highly concerned about their physical appearance compared to American men. According to the survey conducted by over 1,000 Americans by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), in 2021, 73.3% are suffering from skin acne problems.

Furthermore, the continual provision of therapeutic and anti-aging property-based anti-acne cleansers by key manufacturing companies such as L’Oreal S.A., Shiseido Co. Ltd., and others will likely drive the global product demand.

  • For instance, in September 2021, CeraVe, a L’Oreal S.A.-owned facial cleanser products brand expanded its product line by introducing acne control cleanser foams and gels in an American market. These products consist of encapsulated retinol, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and benzoyl peroxide ingredients that are beneficial in treating inflammatory papules and acne skin conditions.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Anti-Acne Cleanser Market

The occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic had posed negative complications to the anti-acne cleanser market growth. Lockdown restrictions, and closure of manufacturing sites, logistics, and distribution channels have posed challenges to the companies in managing their business during the COVID-19 pandemic. Players such as L'Oréal S.A., Unilever Plc., Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc., Shiseido Co., Limited, Amorepacific, and Beiersdorf AG reported a decline in their skincare product revenue due to such restrictions.  

  • For instance, Shiseido Co. Ltd., a Japanese cosmetic maker reported a 18.6% decline in its net revenues and reached USD 8,925.54 million in 2020.

Such an aspect is further supporting the segmental revenues globally.

Significant women population’s concerns over acne skin conditions and increasing demand for skin cleansing cosmetics among them to maintain their facial skin beauty mainly result in the women segment holding a considerable market share. Nowadays, pregnancy and irregular menstruation cycles are the consequences posing skin rashes and skin acne conditions among women. Increasing prevalence of skin acne conditions among women consumers is further accelerating segmental growth.
