Natural Hair Trends and Industry Opportunities

The hair care sector is a shining example of the natural revolution sweeping the personal care industry. Expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% to 2027, the global natural hair care industry is booming.

Consumer purchasing is shifting towards products that are better for hair and the planet. From the ingredients in the products to the social purpose behind the brands, there are several factors driving industry growth.

Here are four key trends you need to be conscious of when choosing natural hair care products to stock on your shelves.

Ingredients: what’s in and what’s out

Ingredient-savvy consumers care just as much about what’s not in their hair products as what’s in them. 

So, what’s out? Skin and hair wellness brand ACURE uses no parabens, sulphates, formaldehyde, paraffin or mineral oil in their products. Instead, they use powerful combinations of super nutrients to create products that deliver results. 

Dr Organic is another brand with a focus on effective natural hair care ingredients. Free from synthetic ingredients and other nasties, the products are crafted from supercharged botanicals and bioactive extracts ethically sourced from around the world.

Wholesale natural hair products distributors

Meeting demand with innovation

It’s not enough to simply switch to natural hair care products… the products also have to work. Innovation is key. 

Giovanni is an early innovator in natural hair care. Founded in 1979, the products are salon quality while using the most natural ingredients possible. Cruelty free and vegan friendly, the products are high-performance while being gentle on the scalp. Giovanni continues to innovate with new ranges that address different hair concerns, such as frizz, hydration and repair. 

Hair care doesn’t just include shampoo, conditioner and styling products. Hair brushes made from natural and sustainable materials like the luxury-grade Bass Brushes are popular with conscious consumers. The biodegradable Bio-flex Detangling Brushes feature handles made from corn, cassava and potato starch.

The role of sustainability

Research suggests that sustainability and social purpose are the next big drivers in natural hair care. Specifically, consumers preferencing hair care products that are cruelty free and use sustainably-sourced ingredients. Recycled and recyclable packaging are also top concerns.

Ethique operates through direct trade to ensure the honest fair trade of the ingredients used to produce the Solid Bars and Concentrates. Their ingredients are sustainably-produced, biodegradable, palm oil and cruelty free. Plus, Ethique packaging is home-compostable. 

For social enterprise Alaffia, profits are reinvested into empowerment projects in the communities that produce the Alaffia range. The projects include maternal health, education, environmental sustainability and the donation of eyeglasses. The cruelty-free products are handcrafted using effective, safe and natural ingredients. 

Catering to the male consumer

Male interest in personal care products, grooming and hair care is on the up. 

Purpose-driven and B-corp-certified brand STUFF is a fuss-free alternative for men. STUFF ticks consumer boxes with cruelty-free products and recyclable bottles made from recycled plastics. The brand also champions healthy masculinity and supports men’s mental health through a not-for-profit, The Man Cave.

5 Natural Beauty Trends for 2022

In their Future of Beauty Report, Nielsen identified natural beauty and skincare as key drivers for the future of the industry. Mintel called it a “Beauty Eco-lution” that is driven by eco-ethical and conscious purchasing decisions.

But the natural beauty market is as diverse as it is fast-growing. It has almost twice the predicted CAGR of the beauty market as a whole! In the plethora of products available, there are key natural beauty trends that are driving the growth.

Here are the five key natural beauty trends you should know to have your finger on the pulse for your eco-conscious customers.

Cruelty free natural beauty

1) CRUELTY FREE

According to What’s New in Healthy Products, consumers are starting to consider vegan and cruelty-free credentials as a baseline requirement for skincare brands. 

ACURE is a brand that is leading the market in highly innovative and effective skincare that also adheres to its vegan and cruelty-free values. For ACURE this means no animal-testing, ever, and drawing on powerful super nutrients for skin wellness. 

From facial scrubs to cleansing gels, face masks, serums, moisturisers, treatments, oils and more, every product in the ACURE range is 100% vegan. 

Zero waste natural beauty

2) ZERO WASTE

Plastic packaging – and more specifically plastic packaging winding up in landfill – is an undeniable issue facing our planet. Since 1960, the amount of plastic packaging used in the USA has increased over 120 times. While this figure isn’t limited to the beauty industry, globally, the beauty and personal care industry accounts for more than AUD $30 billion in plastic packaging sales.

Ethique is an impressively-sustainable brand playing an active role in reducing plastic packaging. The brand and products are 100% plastic free. In fact, Ethique has saved more than 13 million plastic bottles from entering landfill with their sustainable paper packaging, compostable storage containers, concentrates and solid beauty bars.

While Ethique started with shampoo bars, there are now solid face cleansers, solid face scrubs, solid face serums as well as a range of home, pet, hair and body care bars.

The latest addition to the Ethique range are highly-pigmented, long-lasting lipsticks in 100% home compostable tubes. The lipsticks have a satin finish in a range of on-trend colours and are also vegan friendly and palm oil free.

Another brand providing zero-waste solutions is Ever Eco. Their passion for eradicating single-use plastics started with the humble drinking straw and has now extended to include a beauty range. Beauty products include Reusable Bamboo Facial Pads to replace single-use cotton pads as well as Muslin Facial Cloths and Konjac Facial Sponges.

Functional and bioactive ingredients

3) FUNCTIONAL AND BIOACTIVE INGREDIENTS

As much as functional ingredients are driving food trends, they are also a force in natural beauty trends.

Functional and bioactive ingredients have been used for centuries in traditional medicine, and now the natural beauty industry is embracing the transformational power of nature.

Dr Organic doesn’t just use bioactive ingredients. Their ranges are each built around a powerful bioactive to ensure each product is truly functional. Whether it is Organic Aloe Vera, Activated Charcoal, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Manuka Honey, Organic Reishi or one of the other many bioactives in the range, every product is designed to draw on the power of nature to get serious skin results.

ACURE is another brand that uses functional ingredients such as ashwagandha, reishi, holy basil, cordyceps and melatonin. Despite their use of quality, effective plant-based bioactives and functional ingredients, they are incredibly accessible and affordable for the everyday consumer looking to ‘clean up’ their beauty routine. 

Natural beauty supplements

4) BEAUTY FROM WITHIN

In line with the food as medicine trend, there are an increasing number of beauty supplements focusing on nourishing skin from within with the idea that beauty starts on the inside.

Supercharged Food, known for their Love Your Gut powders and capsules, has recently launched the Earth and Sea Beauty Capsules. The capsules contain a blend of silica, iodine and iron. The 100% Australian-sourced silica may aid in collagen production for healthy hair, skin and nails. The iodine in the blend is sourced from Tasmanian kelp and may help to repair damaged skin cells. 

Botanika Blends Beauty Potion is another option for beauty from within. Packed with nutrient-dense ingredients, including plant-based amino acids, vitamin C, probiotics, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and more – it’s designed to support the production of collagen in the body. The vegan-friendly Beauty Potion has a berry flavour and contains nothing artificial.

Natural beauty sheet masks

5) SHEET MASKS

Sheet masks are certainly a trend that is here to stay! The natural beauty trend for sheet masks is in natural and organic ingredients and eco-friendly materials.

Orgaid produced the world’s first organic sheet mask. They use the patented Ecoderma sheet mask fabric along with organic ingredients and scientifically-backed formulations to create highly-effective sheet masks.

The Orgaid sheet mask range includes three varieties – Anti-aging & Moisturizing, Vitamin C & Revitalizing and Greek Yogurt & Nourishing.

ACURE also has a range of sheet masks that target different skin concerns. Much like the rest of the range, the vegan-friendly masks are also free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, paraffins and formaldehyde.

A Retailer’s Guide to the Best Natural Sunscreen

As more consumers make greener choices for their beauty and personal care products, there is a corner of the market that is innovating in a big way – suncare.

Valued at AUD $20.48 billion, the global suncare market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% to 2030. Predictions are that natural, organic and eco options will dominate with consumers now acutely aware of the impact traditional sunscreen chemicals have on skin and the environment.

NATURAL SUNSCREEN INGREDIENTS

There are broadly two types of sunscreen – chemical and physical.

Chemical sunscreens contain active ingredients like oxybenzone, octinoxate or avobenzone. These are all UV absorbers. When they are rubbed into the skin, they work to absorb the UV rays from the skin, preventing sun damage in the process.

On the other hand, physical sunscreens work as a physical barrier between skin and the sun. They contain active ingredients like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. 

For one, consumers are increasingly conscious of the products they use on their skin. But there’s also significant concern around the damage common chemical sunscreen ingredients are causing to reef environments. Destinations like Hawaii, Palau and Aruba have even gone so far as to ban sunscreens containing chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate. 

What does this mean for sunscreen sales in Australia? We have some of the most beautiful ocean environments in the world and a country of sun-loving water enthusiasts. As natural health turns mainstream, more Australians are embracing sustainable brands across all categories, making the decision to stock natural sunscreen alternatives a smart move for retailers.

Amongst the hundreds of brands we stock at Unique Health Products, we’re proud to count many natural sunscreen suppliers in the mix. These considered choices are leaders in the eco suncare market, with strong brand awareness and high-quality, premium offerings.

Demand for Sustainable Period Products is on the Rise

In Australia there are two conversations converging to drive growth in an expanding feminine care purchasing trend. Not only are consumers more aware of the environmental impact of the products they are using, but conversations about women’s health and menstruation are increasingly becoming less taboo. 

As shoppers trend towards reusable and sustainable period products, educating already eco-conscious shoppers presents a large opportunity for health and beauty retailers.

A HIGH GROWTH MARKET

In a 2018 study from the Global Sustainability Institute in the UK, researchers found that all but 14% of survey participants were unaware of or had previously not considered the environmental impact of menstrual products. And that impact is not an insignificant one.

Most reusable period products are made of plastic which can take between 500-800 years to break down in landfill. Considering that the average person will use up to 12,000 period products in their lifetime, that is a lot of plastic making its way to landfill, or even worse, our oceans. 

According to research by Research and Markets, the feminine care market is expected to grow at a global Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.8% from 2020 to 2025. The largest growth segment within the market is forecast to be reusable products, such as menstrual cups. 

EDUCATION IS KEY

Menstrual cups were actually developed in the 1930s at around the same time as tampons. However, It took them more than 80 years to really enter popular use. 

That popular use amounts to a global menstrual cup market that is predicted to hit AUD $1.29 billion by 2026. 

But menstrual cups aren’t the only sustainable option available for conscious consumers. There are now a range of biodegradable disposables that are a more sustainable choice. 

Retailers can play a big role in education on the availability and benefits of these products. From posters to shelf wobblers, eDMs and social media content, talking about the environmental and sustainability benefits of these products opens the door to more opportunities for sales in this market. 

At Unique Health Products we stock a range of sustainable options, both reusable and disposable, to help you meet the rising demand. 

The Hello Cup

THE HELLO CUP

Designed by two women (one of them a registered nurse) The Hello Cup is a menstrual cup made from medical-grade thermoplastic elastomer. It contains no BPA, latex, silicone, heavy metals, rubber, beach or other nasties. 

The Hello Cup comes in a range of certified food-grade colours – Black, Blue, Lilac and Blush. A single Hello Cup will last for at least five years and is the equivalent of more than 2000 single use tampons or pads.

Another reusable option from The Hello Cup is Reusable Liners which can be used as an alternative to single-use panty liners or as a backup for The Hello Cup. There is also a Hand and Hello Cup Cleanser available.

TOM Organic

TOM ORGANIC

The tampons – available in Super, Regular and Mini – are 100% biodegradable and packed in recyclable packaging with no plastic outer wrapping.

SELF-CARE: THE $450 BILLION OPPORTUNITY

The art of self-care has been around for centuries. While the methods may have changed and broadened over the years, the goal of each practice has remained the same – calm the nervous system, feel good and nurture health and wellbeing.  

So many self-care practices that were once considered ‘alternative’ have now infiltrated our daily lives and are widely accepted i.e. yoga and meditation. 

88% of consumers actively practice some form of self-care. 

But thanks to social media and the internet, the self-care industry is a vast space, wide open for individual interpretation and implementation. Even a person’s morning coffee ritual can be considered a form of self-care.

There are more than 25 million posts on Instagram tagged with #selfcare!

Whether it’s a face mask, meditation, breathing technique, home fragrance, diet plan, tea break, bedtime routine or skincare ritual. There’s an option to suit everybody and it’s a retail opportunity, which according to IRi reports, that’s worth a whopping $450 billion! 

MEN’S SELF CARE: Self-care is not only for women either! Allied Market Research projects that the global market for men’s personal care will reach $166 billion by 2022. Skin and body care, in particular, are becoming more socially acceptable thanks to admired celebrities sharing their own routines and innovative marketing campaigns creating discussion.

In order to harness maximum sales growth, brands and retailers must think outside of the traditional, narrowly defined category and take a far broader approach. Taking the time to understand how each retail category can fit within this benefit-based, solution-oriented space is a strategic move that has the potential to totally transform your sales performance.

THE EDIBLE INGREDIENT THAT RENEWS SKIN NATURALLY!

Nutrient-rich organic fermented papaya is the core of all P’URE Papayacare products. They have combined papaya with nourishing skin healthy ingredients including high quantities of 100% natural shea butter, macadamia & essential oils making the entire range effective for many skin conditions.

PURE-PAPAYACARE-Ingredients-shot-300dpi-1

Image: purepapaya.com

Why is Papaya so Good for Skin?

Papaya or Paw Paw is one of the best fruits for skin care. Papaya is a rich source of vitamins, minerals and healthy enzymes including papain which acts as a gentle exfoliator helping to clear away dry & damaged skin and stimulate skin renewal.

It contains rejuvenating enzymes that gently exfoliate and help restore, moisturise and renew skin making it a traditional, effective remedy for wounds, soothing bites and dry skin.

P’URE Papayacare uses whole Australian papaya fruit which is organically grown in tropical parts of Queensland.  The skin, fruit and seeds of the papaya are fermented to concentrate the ingredients and ensure this skin-loving ingredient is rich in nutrients and gentle on skin, without waste.

P'ure-Papaya-Blog-NOV18-03

What Makes P’URE Papayacare Different to Other Papaya Product Lines?

The P’URE Papayacare range was formulated by naturopaths to find a real alternative to skin care products filled with harsh chemicals.

Many skin care products contain petroleum or mineral oil (derived from petroleum). When these petroleum-rich products are applied to your skin, the petrochemical gets absorbed directly into your bloodstream and bypass the liver’s detoxification process. Once in your body, it builds up and accumulates over time. Petroleum, chemical oils and preservatives inhibit the skin’s ability to breathe and “re-balance” and can irritate sensitive skin.

The philosophy behind PURE is simple:

Create products with high-quality natural ingredients that work and are genuinely good and effective for the skin.

What Other Ingredients are in P’URE Papayacare?

P’URE Papayacare’s brand ethos is Natural By Nature, which is at the core of all their decisions when choosing what to include in their formulas.

Only the highest quality (food grade) ingredients have been purposefully selected for their healing and moisturising benefits including Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil, Jojoba Oil and Almond Oil.

Gotu Kola, Tamanu, and Calendula are also added to soothe and decrease inflammation, accelerate healing, calm and nourish the skin.

THE UNEXPECTED PLAQUE-FIGHTING INGREDIENT IN MY MAGIC MUD

The team at My Magic Mud spare no expense when it comes to sourcing the best, active ingredients to give your customers pearly whites, a healthy mouth and fresh breath.

You likely know My Magic Mud as the pioneers in activated charcoal oral care. But when it came to creating the best, activated charcoal oral care range on the market, cofounders Jessica and James Arman were not going to be satisfied until they had created a product that not only contained the highest quality, activated charcoal, but a whole host of natural, tooth-friendly ingredients too!

So what is this unexpected cavity-fighting ingredient?

It’s xylitol! Researched for more than 50 years, it has a strong history in promoting dental health and is completely natural.

my-magic-mud-nov-20183

 

What is xylitol?

Xylitol is a “tooth-friendly”, naturally occurring sweetener known as a sugar alcohol. It’s the only known sweetener that actively promotes dental health.

It prevents the formation of cavities in five clever ways:

  1. Prevents the growth of bacteria that cause cavities by blocking their metabolism.
  2. Sweetens food without being a food/energy source for the bacteria that cause cavities.
  3. Remineralizes the tooth enamel.
  4. Helps the body absorb calcium during digestion.
  5. Triggers saliva production which dilutes tooth-decaying acid.

The uniqueness of xylitol is that it is practically nonfermentable by oral bacteria. When consumed regularly, it helps to reduce the number of Streptococcus mutans, a specific strain of cavity-causing bacteria, as well as the amount of plaque on teeth.

Where does xylitol come from?

It comes from the fibre of many trees, fruits, and vegetables with manufacturers typically extracting it from corn husks & cobs, berries, oats, mushrooms, hardwoods, and the leafy stalks leftover from sugar cane.

It’s naturally lower in calories and won’t spike your blood sugar levels like regular table sugar does, making it an amazing sugar alternative for cooking too!

my-magic-mud-nov-2018

The Disastrous State of Australian’s Teeth

Did you know dental caries (cavities) is the most common disease affecting mankind?

According to the Oral Health Tracker report, 90% of Australian adults have some form of tooth decay, almost three-quarters of children eat too much sugar and more than one-third of five-year-olds have decay in baby teeth!

Luckily, My Magic Mud’s natural oral care range contains a mix of amazing items to help take care of teeth without the use of any added nasties. You’ll find these natural ingredients in their range:

  • Activated Coconut Shell Charcoal – whitens teeth through a process called “adsorption” as opposed to “absorption”. It literally pulls out stains from the pores of the teeth.
  • Bentonite Clay  pulls impurities, toxins, and bacteria from the mouth. It removes plaque with every use and helps rebuild enamel by depositing minerals back into the teeth which helps rebuild the enamel.
  • Diatomaceous Earth –  the abrasive action is gentle enough for teeth but strong enough to remove plaque and tartar. It also promotes healthy tooth enamel which prevents tooth decay and receding gums.
  • Coconut Oil –  a natural tooth whitener and detoxifies the mouth and pulls out impurities.
  • Grapefruit Seed Extract, Tea Tree Oil, Sweet Orange Oil, and Rosemary Oil – used for their antiseptic, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties.

Bonus Benefits

But hold onto your (biodegradable) toothbrush, the benefits don’t stop there!

My Magic Mud do a brilliant job of naturally supporting healthy teeth and gums, but they also have the environment and animals in mind too.

The range is long-lasting with approximately 150 uses per Tooth Powder tub and 200 uses per Toothpaste tube. The Toothbrushes are earth-friendly using sustainable bamboo and bioplastic, and the entire range is vegan, cruelty-free, and non-GMO!

THE TOTAL SKINCARE SYSTEM THAT FIGHTS ACNE NATURALLY

What do you offer your customers when they come in desperate for a natural solution to their acne problem?

Can you confidently recommend an easy-to-use system that’s backed by naturopaths and celebrated by thousands of happy customers around the world?

While various lifestyle factors can contribute to healthy skin, for many acne sufferers, it’s much deeper than that.

The skin is the largest organ of the body and can provide an indication of your underlying wellness and balance. For healthy skin cells to form, the right building blocks are required, so that the skin cells are adequately nourished.

That’s where Skin B5 comes in.

Skin-B5-Blog-SEP18-2

What Are The Key Vitamins & Minerals Required For Healthy Skin?

A number of essential vitamins and minerals are important to maintain healthy skin including:

  • Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) – essential for our ability to cope with stress, and may play a role in healthy sebum production.
  • Zinc – important for normal skin renewal processes while being essential for wound healing and healthy hormones.
  • Vitamin A and Niacin (Vitamin B3) –  deficiencies can result in skin and hormonal problems.
  • Folic acid – deficiency can produce changes in the skin.
  • Folate (Vitamin B9) – adequate levels are required for the synthesis of new cells, which promotes the vital processes of skin turnover, barrier formation, and wound healing.
  • Silica – essential for the strength and resilience of connective tissue is therefore required for the proper integrity of the skin.
  • Copper – important for connective tissue formation and is also involved in the production of elastin and collagen.
  • Biotin – contributes to the maintenance of normal skin.

Treating Underlying Causes

If your customers have an underlying deficiency of key vitamins or minerals that are essential for skin and hormone health, treating the skin with creams and washes from the outside will never correct the underlying nutritional requirements for long-lasting effectiveness.

SkinB5 has developed a specific formula that provides a therapeutic amount of essential nutrients required to correct deficiencies that may be seen in those with acne. SkinB5 has combined these nutrients in a tablet form to address imbalances from the inside, where skin problems often start.

Taking a holistic approach, SkinB5 have also developed a moisture balancing cleanser and moisturiser to act on the skin from the outside in.

5 Key Actions of SkinB5

SkinB5 addresses the main root causes of acne, including blackheads and whiteheads by: 

  1. Reducing Skin Oil
    – regulates sebum production
  2. Balancing Hormones
  3. Strengthening the Immune System
  4. Helping to Relieve Stress
    – stress negatively affects hormones and immunity
  5. Cell Renewal
    – helps reduce scarring overtime

Skin-B5-Blog-SEP18-3

SkinB5 skincare products are FREE of:

  • Benzoyl Peroxide
  • Parabens
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)
  • Synthetic Fragrances

Voluntary Withdrawal – My Magic Mud Bioplastic Toothbrush

Due to My Magic Muds uncompromising commitment to producing the highest quality products, they have decided to voluntarily withdrawal the Earth-Friendly Bioplastic Toothbrush (MM52), until they strengthen their manufacturing solution with bioplastics and charcoal infused bristles.

My Magic Mud have determined that a small percentage of Bioplastic Toothbrushes, have a loosening of the bristles, when they are exposed to
hot water and vigorous brushing.

They apologise for the inconvenience this has caused and are working diligently to rectify this issue.

The Bamboo Toothbrushes (MM51) are completely unaffected by this withdrawal.
After detailed examination and testing, the Bamboo Toothbrushes bristles are perfectly intact and of the highest quality on the market.
