Cosmetic Trends for the Next Five Years

Last December, Nick Morante asked formulators of some 200 leading cosmetic brands where they believe the cosmetic industry is heading for the next 5 years. Here is what they said:

  • Natural ingredients will have a large impact.
  • Demand in developing countries will grow.
  • China, India, Asia and the Middle East come into prominence.
  • Growing consumer awareness, with more consumers reading ingredient labels and try to understand what is in their product. Consumers are researching ingredients. They communicate about it over the internet.
  • Advances in technology do not rate high with formulators. They may feel that not many new developments will appear over the next years.
  • Men’s cosmetics will not have much impact
  • Suncare and spa products will have some more importance.

In conclusion:

  • Natural ingredients, developing countries and consumer awareness are key indicators for growth of the cosmetics industry over the next 5 years.
  • Technology, demographics and men’s cosmetics will play a small role in the industry’s growth over the next 5 years.

Paul Penders Co, although not a huge international cosmetic company player, may seem on the right path because we use pure natural and certified organic ingredients. We are involved in emerging countries. We provide in depth product information; this is a strong wish of consumers today, they want adequate, honest ingredient information. In addition, we always try to explain clearly who we are and what motivates us in trying to be the very best company we can be; not trying to become the biggest company!
With the conclusion of this research, we feel confident that in the next 5 years the Paul Penders brand will continue to grow because we head in the right way according to the outcome. Hopefully we can make even more impact on consumers worldwide who look for…. well … The Real Thing! 🙂

Stress & your skin

Many physical changes are associated with long-term stress which leads to intense effects on your skin.

Whenever one is under stress, hormones will be released which cause blood vessels to constrict and lead to poor circulation. Due to decrease of blood supply to the skin, can leave it feeling dry and flaky.

Besides that, one breathing alters will become quicker and shallower. This will cause the amount of oxygen to your skin to be reduced. If stress is long-lasting, you may find that your skin becomes pasty or gray and you will be having tension lines around forehead, eyes and mouth.

Skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes although is not initially caused by stress, can worsen when you are under stress. And some people find that they break out in spots when they are stressed.

Although it is hard to get rid of all the stress we have, there are a few techniques that can help us to cope with stress more effectively.

  • Learn how to say no – Understand own limits and stick to them or when it is not necessary, you don’t have to do it.
  • Time management – If you are trying to do too many things in a time, not good. Try to arrange /divide the time well for each task.
  • Make time for yourself – do something that will bring joy to you. For example, reading, taking a walk in the park, relaxing while listening to music and many more.
  • Have enough sleep
  • Have a massage to relax tense muscle

And many techniques out there that is suitable for us. However, remember to choose a healthy way to release your stress.

We at Paul Penders have an excellent product that releases stress on the skin.
