Natural skincare, a catalyst for suitable preservatives?

Preservatives manufacturers: there’s a huge market to behold, finds Frost & Sullivan.

It isn’t a hidden fact that the consumers of today have become quite aware of what goes into a product be it the preservatives and to what extent is it safe for them. This concern has led to their increased scrutiny by regulatory bodies.  All of which has given an immense boost to suitable preservatives.

Statistically speaking, the global market for personal care and cosmetics preservatives is set to reach $533.8 million by 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6% between 2018 and 2023. On the other hand, the demand for preservatives is anticipated to reach 125.0 kilotons by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 7.0%, attributed to the rising consumption from the personal care industry, specifically.
