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.

NATURALLY GOOD EXPO 2018 – BY THE NUMBERS

Held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Darling Harbour, the Naturally Good Expo is Australia’s largest trade show for all natural, organic and healthy products and services.

Each year we attend as a platinum partner to showcase our top sellers to the most influential people in the industry and work to build mutually beneficial connections with retailers and our suppliers. This year we unveiled our biggest stand yet – the largest at the show!

In case you missed it, here’s how our Naturally Good Expo 2018 experience happened – by the numbers!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-clif-bar1

1. ONE CRITICAL PERSON

It takes a whole lot of planning, coordination and project management to transform our original ideas into a real-life masterpiece at the Naturally Good Expo. Thankfully, we have one incredible team that makes all the late nights, early mornings, last minute hiccups and hours spent on emails and phone calls integrate into a seamless, successful event!

While we couldn’t do it without many hands on deck, there is always one person in particular that plays a pivotal role in our Naturally Good experience – our Marketing Executive extraordinaire, Carol. Thank you for all that you do!

2. TWO MAJOR STALL SPACES

This year the Unique stand took up two of the largest sites at the expo. The updated stand was dotted with sampling booths, decorated with hot new products and buzzing with staff, suppliers and retailers – it was a sight to see and the energy was incredible!

3. THREE HOUR PACK DOWN

With the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference & Trade Exhibition looming the following weekend, most of the team had already returned to the Sunshine Coast by the time the event ended. The staff and suppliers that remained (thank you, East Bali Cashews and Natural Evolution!) packed down the stall in a record time of 3 hours!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-hot-new-products

4. FOUR SIGMATIC, MY MAGIC MUD, UPTON’S NATURALS & MORE!

This year, when it came to sampling and showcasing our amazing product range, the team had a little extra help…

Award-winning international and local creators, innovators and makers of the hottest, must-have health products joined us as part of our ‘Meet the Makers’ event – including Four Sigmatic, My Magic Mud, Manitoba Harvest and Upton’s Naturals!

Each supplier that joined our stand had the opportunity to promote and sample their products at their very own sampling booth. This allowed the suppliers to strengthen their retailer relationships and cement their place as a leading brand in the health and wellness space. Something we’re beyond proud to help facilitate!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-clif-bar

5. FIVE HUNDRED HEALTH PRODUCTS AND GOODIE BAGS

The stand was full to the brim with more than 500 natural health and wellness products on display! Plus, we handed out 500+ goodie bags to industry influencers, retail leaders, and key stakeholders filled with:

6. SIX MONTHS PREP TIME

The entire event took our team, Carol in particular, a grand total of six months to prepare for. From supporting the Naturally Good Expo team with our Platinum Partner duties, to coordinating stock, and logistics of the stand set up and staff involved, there was so much to be done and we couldn’t be prouder of our team and what they’ve achieved!

7. SEVEN THOUSAND ATTENDEES

Across two huge days, we served up thousands of product samples to 7000+ health-focused expo attendees – also known as a lot of chopping!

Sampling allowed retailers and industry leaders to gain better insights into the suppliers products, build stronger connections, learn the backstory, and discover what niche the product can fill in their stores. It’s a super important step towards long-term success in stores!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-manitoba-harvest

8. MORE THAN EIGHTY HOT NEW PRODUCTS LAUNCHED

An entire section of our stand was dedicated to over 80 hot new products launched at the expo! Brands included:

9. NINE HOUR SET UP

While the pack down was somewhat of a breeze, Rome wasn’t certainly not built overnight. Our largest stand ever took a whole lot of teamwork and around nine hours to set it all up!

10. TEN HUGE PALLETS DELIVERED

That nine hours of set up involved the unpacking and merchandising of 10 full pallets of product, equipment and stall materials!

Despite the whirlwind nature of the actual event, we put our time and effort into these events to support our suppliers, build and strengthen our retailer relationships and meet new faces along the way. We couldn’t do what we do without their support and for that, we’re always grateful!

If you missed out this time, don’t worry, we can’t wait to do it all again, so we’ll see you next year!

THE NEW SKINCARE RANGE THAT FIGHTS SIDE-EFFECTS OF URBAN POLLUTION

TOP-SELLING UK BRAND, DR ORGANIC, NOW HAS AN ACTIVATED CHARCOAL RANGE THAT HELPS TO FIGHT SKIN DAMAGE FROM URBAN POLLUTION.

The skin is regularly exposed to a range of air pollutants and environmental elements. Although human skin acts as a biological shield against these harmful compounds, a prolonged or repetitive exposure to high levels of these pollutants may contribute to negative effects on the skin.

Skin exposure to air pollutants has been associated with skin aging and inflammatory or allergic skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis or acne, while skin cancer is among the most serious effects.

Dr Organic’s Activated Charcoal range helps to eliminate dirt, oil, and impurities from the body while combating the side-effects of urban stress and pollution.

Using activated charcoal produced from Oak Trees grown in sustainable and regulated forests, and a proprietary blend of organic and bioactive extracts including aloe vera juice, cucumber, and cinnamon, the range is ideal for those with oily and blemish-prone skin.

The most common forms of air pollutants in urban society today include:

1.Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)

PAHs are among the most widespread organic pollutants. Long term-exposed skin to PAHs either through the hair or skin may lead to oxidative stress, pigmentation and skin ageing. PAHs have also been implicated in the development of skin cancer.

Main sources: Residual wood burning, car exhaust fumes, and smoke.

2.Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

VOCs, with the presence of sunlight and nitrogen oxides, cause the formation of photochemical oxidant products -mainly ozone (O3) – at ground level, also called Summer photochemical smog.

Main sources: Organic solvents in paints, varnishes, vehicle refinishing products, tobacco smoke, stored fuels, car exhaust and emissions from industrial facilities.

3.Oxides

Oxides have been associated with increased prevalence of atopic dermatitis as well as exacerbations of the disease in children.

Main sources: Nitrogen oxides are emitted mainly from mobile and stationary combustion sources. Sulphur dioxide can be formed from both industrial processes and natural sources such as volcanic activity and forest fires.

4.Particulate Matter (PM)

Air pollutants, consisting of complex and varying mixtures of different size and composition particles suspended in the air are called PM. Exposure to PM contributes to external signs of skin aging (wrinkles, pigmented macules or spots).

Main sources: Factories, power plants, refuse incinerators, automobile, construction activities, fires and natural windblown dust are some of the main sources of PM.

5.Ozone

Exposure to O3 has been associated with urticaria, eczema, contact dermatitis, and other nonspecific eruptions.

Main sources: Ozone may be formed as a by-product of various everyday activities combined with the interaction of sunlight (UVR), hydrocarbons, VOCs and nitric oxides, representing a major active component of the pro-oxidant smog.

6.Cigarette Smoke

The combination of smoking and sun exposure may combine to negatively influence skin aging. Cigarette smoking has been associated with skin aging (wrinkles, skin dryness, skin dyschromia), skin cancer (SCC, BCC), psoriasis and acne vulgaris.

By world standards, Australia has very clean air. However, according to the Department of the Environment and Energy, levels of some pollutants, including ground-level ozone and particulate matter, can still exceed current air quality standards.
