The Cosmetics Industry in South Africa


Consumer spending patterns are reflecting the economic downturn caused by the impact of the pandemic, with spending focused on essential items. The lockdown has had a significant effect on the industry as frequent handwashing and use of hand sanitisers has resulted in increased use of hand creams and lotions to moisturise the skin. Numerous cosmetics companies have started manufacturing hand sanitisers. Retailers reported increased sales of haircare products when salons were closed, while sales of nail polish and shaving products also grew.


Trends


Consumer concerns about sustainability and the use of harmful ingredients has led to a growing market for cosmetics formulated with natural ingredients. The number of cosmetics startups has increased, often as a result of black consumer complaints about the lack of products for their skin and hair requirements, leading to the development of new brands. Men are becoming more fashion-conscious, and male-focused grooming products and beauty parlours are increasing. Online sales of products, including cosmetics, have grown significantly since the start of the lockdown.


Global Trends


Digitalisation, wellness, personalisation and sustainability are some of the important beauty and grooming trends, largely popularised by independent beauty brands and followed by established companies. These trends have also resulted in mergers and acquisitions as major companies wanted to benefit from the success of independent brands. Throughout the lockdowns people have generally stuck to their normal skin care routine, but sales of make-up have declined due to fewer trips outside the home, and the wearing of masks.
