"Market Intelligence that Adds Flavour to Your Success"

Nutricosmetics refers to dietary supplements and similar products that are consumed orally and are designed to improve the health of skin, hair, and nails. These products are a convergence of nutraceuticals and cosmetics that help to improve and enhance one’s beauty through a holistic approach. Adopting such beauty products in one’s beauty regime helps strengthen nails and support hair care, remove wrinkles, enhance skin elasticity, and strengthen the immune system.
Increased Demand For Natural Products during the Pandemic Propelled the Global Market Growth
The consumption of beauty products reduced during the pandemic as people were prohibited from leaving their houses. Hence, as most business places were closed to curb the virus spread, a significant proportion of the global workforce started working from their home. Moreover, limited socialization caused many people to purchase items which are essential and limit their expenditure on non essential items. Hence, expenditure on beauty products especially chemical cosmetics declined. However, the market sales were impacted marginally compared to other cosmetics products.
The lockdown helped increase awareness regarding the relationship between diet and beauty. As per a survey conducted by Lycored in 2022, a wellness company based in the U.K., one in three of the respondents want to purchase ingestible skin care products. Consumers associated healthy diet with better skin and glowing appearance. Consumption behavior related to cosmetic supplements changed significantly due to the pandemic with increase in expenditure on natural cosmetics compared to chemical cosmetics. Several consumers in Europe and the U.S. started to look for products which help to improve health and beauty. This created opportunity for beauty product manufacturers to develop products for a growing consumer base, propelling industry expansion
Adoption of Innovative Beauty Regimes Increased Demand for Nutricosmetics
Consumers, especially the younger generation, have the propensity to experiment and adopt new beauty regimes to enhance their skin and health. ‘‘Skin minimalism” is one such trend observed among the users where consumers adopt essential beauty products in their skin routine and prefer to consume products targeted toward specific skin problems. The use of fewer products helps to reduce skin irritation, skin sensitivity, and skin damage. Thus, several consumers are switching to products that do not overwhelm the skin and also help to keep it nourished and healthy. As these products easily fit into such beauty regimes, their popularity among old and young consumers has increased globally.

Shift From Harmful Chemical Cosmetics to Natural Products to Augment the Sales of the Product Globally
The popularity of chemical cosmetics made of harmful ingredients such as parabens is facing a slowdown in the global market and the purchase of such products is declining among health-conscious consumers. Studies have shown that certain chemical cosmetics are responsible for causing several skincare problems, including cancer, skin irritations, and other problems. For instance, as per research conducted by the University of Texas in 2022, the adoption of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in the beauty regime causes cancer and other health problems. Even certain skincare specialists recommend consumers to adopt products that are healthy and suitable for the skin. They are marketed as healthy products that are made of natural active ingredients and are not associated with any health problems. As health and skin consciousness among consumers is increasing globally, the demand for such products is expected to increase among skin and health-conscious consumers.
Compared to synthetic cosmetics products which are specifically targeted for a specific skin tone, these natural cosmetic products are versatile and can be consumed by a wider range of consumers irrespective of their skin tone. Several consumers, which include the older and younger generations, are consuming products that help to enhance beauty from within. This growing consumption has prompted several cosmetics manufacturers to launch these product ranges for all demographics. Furthermore, the growing elderly population in the U.S., Japan, and Europe is also boosting the demand for natural products to improve health and beauty.
Change in Lifestyle And Dietary Patterns to Boost the Nutricosmetics Market Growth
The lifestyles and dietary patterns of consumers are changing rapidly, which is causing nutritional deficiency and impacting skin and hair health. Stress and consumption of junk food causes premature hair fall, acne, and several skin, hair loss, and nail problems especially among the younger generation. Young consumers are interested in experimenting with new beauty supplements and the demand for high-quality beauty products is increasing in the U.S., Europe, and Asian markets. Hence, to mitigate such issues, the consumption of skin, hair, and nail supplements is expected to increase, boosting the global market growth.
Stringent Market Regulations and Limited Product Awareness May Impede the Market Growth
Several countries have their own regulations related to cosmetics and food supplement products, which directly impact the market. Ingestible products such as gummies need to comply with the regulations established by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the U.S. and other similar regulatory bodies in different countries, which impact the launch of new products in the market. Thus, new entrants and traditional beauty companies launching new cosmetics products may suffer significant liabilities and regulatory hurdles related to product launches. Furthermore, a lack of awareness among consumers about product availability and efficacy can also negatively impact the global nutricosmetics market statistics.
Capsules to Lead the Market Owing to Increased Bioavailability and Higher Efficacy
By form, the market has been segregated into tablets, capsules, powder, and others. Capsules are the most popular form accounting for the highest share and widely used format to deliver formulations to consumers. They help increase the overall bioavailability of the ingredients and ensure higher efficacy compared to other modes of delivery, due to which they are widely used by manufacturers while developing new products.
Moreover, due to easy solubility of powdered supplements and availability of multiple flavors within this format, the demand for different nutricosmetic supplements in powdered form is growing significantly.
Furthermore, among the other form segment, the popularity of gummies is increasing among consumers. Flavored gummy supplements help to mask the unpleasant taste of the products, making it easier for consumers to consume and enjoy them. It can be easily consumed across all age groups, so such a product format is becoming popular among consumers.
Skin Segment Accounts for the Highest Market Share Owing to Higher Popularity of the Product Among Consumers
Based on application, the market is segmented into three categories: skin, nails, and hair. Among these, the skin segment accounts for the largest market share as manufacturers launch a wide range of skin-based products for consumers globally. They help to address several skin problems, such as nutrient deficiency-induced skin problems. Several products, including anti-aging, smoothening, and whitening, are widely popular among consumers.
Hair and nail products are also popular among consumers in the global market. An increase in hair problems such as alopecia aerate among young and old people is prompting consumers to adopt products that help to reduce hair fall and promote hair and nail growth.
