What are cosmetic ingredients and how is market growth ensured?

Cosmetic ingredients are substances that are used in the manufacturing of cosmetic products such as makeup, fragrances, haircare, and skincare cosmetics.

In the following years, demand is expected to be particularly high for ingredients that are used in the production of haircare and skincare items. As consumers are becoming aware of the importance of skincare, they are looking for good quality ingredients and clean-label cosmetics now more than ever.
