It’s that time of year when we start thinking about what’s going to be new next year. As you can imagine, we spend a lot of time thinking about skin and new innovations and want to share a few of those thoughts with you!
A huge trend in skincare right now is “Boosted Actives”. The heavy hitting staples in most cosmetic skincare formulations like Hyaluronic Acid, Retinol and Peptides are now being formulated in a boosted version and readily used by major beauty brands. In the past, a development team could create an effective anti-aging formulation focusing on the top three staple ingredients but today the consumer wants more.
Another trend is “Toxic Free Preservatives”. In addition to more efficacious active ingredients, expect to see conscious beauty brands continue to replace potentially toxic ingredients with more eco-friendly alternatives. In past years we have seen preservatives like parabens replaced with less offensive ingredients like phenoxyethanol. You can expect this trend to continue as consumers pressure brands to steer away from toxic preservatives and harmful fragrance ingredients.
Of course, the ongoing trend of “Free from ……” will continue especially in the “cruelty free” areas. Consumers need to look closely at the ingredient lists of products making these claims and should also check the ingredients and manufacturing process for the many suppliers to these beauty brands. It’s quite easy to get caught up in a claim and assume a product is toxic free because it is gluten free, cruelty free and vegan only to find out it isn’t.
One thing that will never be “trendy” is beautiful, healthy skin. There are many ways we can achieve this … eating right, exercising and taking care of our skin will help a lot but sometimes we need more. That’s where Bellafill comes in.
