Trending ingredients in beauty are ever changing, but currently, natural and clean ethos is top of mind. For example, orris root is an emerging trend with social buzz up +283% as it drains skin impurities and allows for a smoother complexion. Moringa, rich in vitamins and minerals, has an extreme search volume of 241k average weekly searches whereas rambutan has 185k average weekly searches. Tsubaki oil (+34% to LY) is emerging in the market as a favorite product as well.
It’s Halloween season once again, and the children’s market is flooding with fun costumes.
