Increasing Demand for Skincare Products with SPF Ingredients to Spur Growth

Nowadays, the demand for skincare products equipped with multiple benefits is surging from women across the globe. Products, such as moisturizer with sun protection or skin whitener with sun protection are experiencing more popularity. The ‘2020 RealSelf Sun Safety Report’ found that approximately 56% of the surveyed people used moisturizer with SPF benefits that very year. It was only 51% back in 2019. Also, 1 out of 3 adults use make-up products including SPF ingredients in the U.S. This factor is expected to propel the sun care products market growth in the forthcoming years.

However, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is compelling people to purchase only essential items instead of spending more on sun care products. This factor may obstruct demand.
