In the UK alone, the organic skin care market is worth an estimated £75.9m. Globally, the natural cosmetics market is on track to be worth an estimated £34b in 2019.
There are many reasons that explain the ever-growing interested in natural and organic cosmetics, including:
- Raised awareness of environmental issues causing an increase in conscious consumerism
- Raised awareness on how what we put on our skin affects our overall health
- Increased interest in the importance of wellbeing and self-care
- Increased interest in organic food, causing people to question other aspects in their life that may have been previously overlooked
Whereas multinational cosmetic corporations are also cashing in on this trend for natural and organic cosmetics, research shows that consumers are putting more and more importance on how trustworthy a company is. For many consumers, simply having "organic" or "natural" written on the label isn't enough - companies must prove their ethical worth.
Companies that test their products on animals, use mineral oils, or unsustainable sources of ingredients such as palm oil, will often see their customer base turn away in favour of other companies, seen as more "honest". This has resulted in an increased support for cottage industries and small, local businesses, especially those that are certified, that are seen as more ethical, more eco-friendly and better value for money as these small-batch products are considered to be of higher quality.
