How COVID-19 Impacted on Waterless Cosmetics in FMCG Industry ?


INTRODUCTION

Waterless beauty, also known as anhydrous beauty, refers to cosmetics that are made without the use of water. It first gained popularity in South Korea (interesting fact: it's also where waterless toilets were invented), but not as an environmental movement; rather, it was used to boost the power of beauty products by concentrating undiluted chemicals at a higher concentration. Cosmetics with less water have a lower risk of bacterial growth, a longer shelf life, and require fewer preservatives. The COVID -19 has mixed outcomes of patterns for the cosmetics manufacturers in developing countries. The impact of COVID-19 on the cosmetics industry can be seen in the product portfolios which are offered by manufacturers in the cosmetics market.
The beauty industry was expanding before the COVID-19 epidemic, thanks to bettering people's lifestyles with more discretionary income and a growing concern for looks. The beauty business was not only continuously increasing with loyal customers, but it was also one of the most resilient, having recovered from the 2008 financial crisis in just two years.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE COSMETICS/ BEAUTY PRODUCTS INDUSTRY

The economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is projected to be far worse than any recession, and the beauty business will be no different. It is being impacted on two fronts: production and distribution are being interrupted as a result of global lockdowns, and sales are reduced as a result of consumers losing disposable income as well as closing down of cosmetics stores as a result of lockdown procedures. According to estimates, the worldwide beauty industry's sales could drop by 20% to 30% by 2020 as a result of the epidemic.
The beauty sector, on the other hand, is likely to show the same durability and adaptability it has shown in previous crises. To tackle the illness, many beauty firms are turning to hand sanitizers and soaps. Even though consumers aim to spend less on beauty goods shortly, they still intend to spend more on beauty items than other amenity categories such as clothes.
Before the epidemic, the beauty sector was one of the few that still relied heavily on in-store sales. Due to COVID-19, stores selling beauty items were forced to close, resulting in a 30 percent market share loss. Even if internet sales increase by 20% to 30%, the loss of in-store sales will not be compensated for. The varieties of beauty products on the market are also evolving. Since social separation has become the new normal, sales of fragrances and cosmetics have plummeted. Items for self-care and pampering that may be used at home (skincare, haircare, nail care, and bath products) have witnessed a surge in sales.
The expectation that people will wear masks even after they are released from lockdown predicts an increase in mask makeup. Asian beauty trends, such as point makeup, are predicted to gain demand as people have become more acclimated to utilizing face masks regularly.
According to experts, it is expected that macro-categories of color cosmetics, such as concealer and eye makeup (eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara), will grow in popularity. It also advises base makeup formulators to make sure their goods can withstand using masks.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON COSMETICS CHAIN

During the pandemic, lockdown and emergency measures hindered the delivery of raw ingredients to the cosmetics sector. The natural ingredients price increased, those export from developing countries due to increased freight prices and longer transportation delays. As a result of the epidemic, some cosmetic and ingredient companies are establishing regional and local supply networks.
The supply chain affects not only manufacturers, distributors, and customers, but also labor-intensive cosmetics plants. Many plants' production was decreased, stopped, or temporarily halted as a result of workers who were found to be COVID-19 positive. COVID-19 has impacted the supply chain the most as due to the lockdown in the several countries the import and export activities become difficult and also the demand has reduced which has impacted the demand of the cosmetics products in the market. Several plant implementations have gone on hold and also transportation of the cosmetics items from one nation to another is very difficult due to such a situation.

STRATEGIC INITIATIVES DURING COVID-19

Since the introduction of the virus, consumer demand for healthy and natural products has increased; many consumers are purchasing such products to improve their immunity.
The unwillingness of cosmetic manufacturers to discuss the changes that could arise over the next few years maybe because they would be the ones most affected. Owing to the potential for job losses, there might be some reluctance to talk publicly.
Following the Covid-19, cosmetics producers are required to prioritize health and safety as well as worker well-being. Factories, where social distancing and other protective measures are more difficult to enforce, have become hotbeds for the virus, so factories are looking at a variety of options to ensure worker safety while keeping production moving.
For Instance:-
· As of June 2020, Unilever started its operation in hygiene products in the Beauty & Personal Care division. It also assisted people in maintaining their hygiene as improving their well-being remains a top concern for the company to create goodwill in the present market.
· As of March 2020, Unilever one of the bigger beauty brands invested millions of dollars towards the fight against the coronavirus. Unilever had announced the release of €100 million worth of soaps, sanitizers, bleach, and meals which helped to fight against the pandemic situations.
· As of April 2021, Procter & Gamble took steps to fight against coronavirus through a new program named #PG PGSurakshaIndia in India. The company donated 10 lakh vaccine doses for 5 lakh citizens worth Rs INR 50 Cr.

CONCLUSION

With the popularity of Asian beauty trends, the growth of e-commerce for beauty items is projected to continue. Despite the 2020 worst years for the beauty industry, the beauty industry is predicted to stay profitable in the long run because it is still regarded as an important aspect of people's well-being.
Today the spread of the novel coronavirus has triggered significant market damage across the world. Most businesses have stopped immediately and the effect of the pandemic on cosmetic manufacturers is not yet clear. The towns are closed down, and social distancing has become a modern norm.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Many patients ask us, "How does laser hair removal work?" But, more often than not, what they really want to know is, "Is laser hair removal safe and effective, and will it work on me?" Laser hair removal may sound like a terrifying procedure that involves shooting a laser gun at your skin like something from a spy movie. However, this is not how laser hair removal actually looks. Laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular, and it's easy to see why when you learn how effective it is. We'll answer your questions here so you can make the best choice for your lifestyle and skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Safe Obviously, the most important question to ask whenever you try a new skin treatment is whether it is safe. When you're out in public, everyone can see your skin. People are usually scared of the word "laser" when it comes to laser hair removal because it sounds dangerous. The truth is that the lasers used in laser hair removal are extremely effective at destroying only hair follicles while leaving the rest of your skin unharmed. The US FDA strictly regulates all lasers used for hair removal to ensure their safety. Hair removal lasers are referred to as "lasers" because they emit extremely concentrated light. This specialised light is absorbed by your hair follicles, which convert the light energy into heat. Heat harms your hair's follicle, which is responsible for hair growth. This targeted damage to the hair follicle is what removes unwanted hair and reduces the likelihood of it growing back. Hair removal lasers are designed to target melanin in the hair. Melanin is the pigment that gives colour to your body hair. The laser targets the hair from the shaft down into the follicle by using the contrast between the melanin and your skin. Because laser hair removal works by reducing the ability of your hair follicles to regrow hair, it must be done gradually. The fact that the procedure is done over time contributes to the procedure's safety because the laser's level is low enough to damage only the hair follicles and not the surrounding skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Worth Your Investment Laser hair removal requires an investment of your time; however, when you consider how long the results will last, it is relatively inexpensive. Consider how much time and money you spend on your current hair removal method when deciding whether or not laser hair removal is a good option for you. For example, if you shave your legs, try keeping track of how much time you spend shaving each week. Then figure out how many razor-head replacements you go through in a week. Then multiply this cost by the number of weeks and months in a year to get the current, annual cost of hair removal. The Time Commitment Laser hair removal can take anywhere from 2 to 6 sessions, depending on your skin and hair type. The length of each session is determined by the size of the area being shaved. Small areas, such as the upper lip or armpits, can take 5-15 minutes, whereas larger areas, such as your legs or back, can take up to an hour per session. You can expect to wait 4-6 weeks between sessions. This is due to the fact that hair grows in cycles, and the laser is most effective at killing your hair when it is actively growing. One of the most common mistakes people make with laser hair removal is going to a couple of sessions, seeing a reduction in hair growth, and then failing to return for their remaining sessions. What is actually happening when you notice this initial reduction in hair growth is that your hair is in a dormant period and will re-grow quickly once this cycle is completed. That is why it is essential to attend the recommended number of sessions. How Much Money Do You Really Spend? The average cost of laser hair removal is between $300 and $500. However, this varies greatly depending on the size of the area you're removing hair from and the number of sessions your hair requires. Many facilities offer financing for aesthetic treatments. The initial cost of this hair removal method may appear to be high. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is expected to provide months to years of smooth skin at a time. If you multiply the amount you currently spend on shaving or waxing over months and years, the cost is likely comparable to what you'll pay as a one-time fee for laser hair removal. You may be wondering why, if laser hair removal works so well and is so inexpensive, not everyone is doing it. The truth is that there are numerous misconceptions about laser hair removal that deter people from using it. How to Get Ready There are things you can do to prepare your skin for a healthy laser hair removal session, as well as things you can do to care for your skin after each session. The best way to decide whether to commit to laser hair removal is to speak with your skin specialist about your hair removal options.

Dry skin? No longer a problem! Amazing results!
Did you know that skin’s surface layers have between 10% to 30% water content, and maintaining this level of hydration it should be your main priority? Most of the time, having dry skin is due to genetics, but can also be influenced by external factors like pollution, personal lifestyle, diet, hormones, climate, medication. A major job has been conveyed by the kind of skin-care items you use, as hurtful and drying fixings can irritate the skin's surface. Despite the reason, the outcome is your skin can't keep up its typical hydration level. Your strategy to restore the skin's surface, so it can remain flawlessly hydrated, is to begin giving your skin what it needs to stay hydrated, unblemished and smooth. Naturally, what you should do? Drinking a ton of water consistently is an useful thing, yet on the off chance that you have dry skin, this speaks to avery significant factor for the degree of dryness. Eat steadily, keep up an eating regimen is the thing that each specialist would state. I state that as well. I won't get into this subject as there are a lot of articles out there that approach this point with increasingly itemized and helpful data. Speaking of beauty, what you should do The most important thing in your beauty routine is to gently exfoliate your complexion twice or three times a week to get rid of dead cells. Because of these, an additional layer of skin is formed, so preventing the build-up of dead cells you allow treatments and moisturizes to go effectively into your skin and maintain the level of hydration longer. Use an efficient natural foundation for dry skin. Why organic makeup? Simply because it is natural, has more healing and hydrateting properties and does good to your skin! Another interesting fact is hot water strips oils from the skin faster than cold water, so I suggest you skip the long, hot showers or baths, I know is more than difficult, but try to limit yourself to a 5-10 warm shower a day to help your skin retain more natural oil into it. You should get worried when... Having dry skin can also be a sign of dermatitis if your skin presents some flaking along with redness. In this case, I recommend you go to dermatology. You might face a serious medical issue that needs professional attention. How to keep your skin hydrated? Using the right products, designed for dry skin, even better if organic and natural, and following a strict daily routine are important steps in keeping your skin hydrated. Restoring hydration to the skin is also important, so there are some things to be avoided if you want to keep your skin smooth. Stop damaging your skin by avoiding the following things: 1. Soaps in bar form 2. Drying cleansers 3. Products with hard or skin-aggravating ingredients like alcohol denat., citrus, fragrance, mint 4. Hot water, as it breaks down the skin 5. Abrasive scrubs or exfoliants 6. Stiff-bristled brushes as it can cause micro-tears in the skin’s surface Conclusion Hope you enjoy my writing and I will be very happy if this article helped at least one of the lady out there. Love you all!

6 Easy Ways To A Smooth Neck
Because the skin on your neck is some of the thinnest on your body, it is also one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Here are six ways to make your neck look younger and address everything from sun damage to sagging on this delicate area. 1. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY SINGLE DAY. Your dermatologist will agree that a nickel-sized amount of sunscreen applied to your neck and chest every day will help prevent collagen breakdown and the formation of sunspots. Don't forget to massage the sides and back of your neck. 2. MAINTAIN YOUR SKIN'S MOISTURIZATION. Again, the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands than the rest of your body, so keeping the area hydrated is essential for a smoother overall texture. Look for peptide-containing creams (which can help stimulate new collagen growth) and apply them in gentle, upward strokes from your chest to your jawline. 3. RECLAIM YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP. Do you always wake up with pillow lines on the side of your neck? Apply one of these silicone patches before going to bed to keep your skin from crinkling while you sleep. You'll wake up with a smoother neck and less chance of further damage. 4. FOCUS ON CORRECT POSTURE. The amount of time we spend looking down at our phones and screens has resulted in what we now refer to as "tech neck." The simplest solution would be to limit screen time entirely, but more realistically, you should keep everything as close to eye level as possible to avoid unnecessary wrinkling. 5. GIVE LASER TREATMENTS A GO AHEAD. Still have fine lines on your neck? Fraxel lasers, stimulate your body's natural repair process to promote collagen growth. Fraxel can also be used to treat any dark spots or broken capillaries in the area, giving you a more even complexion. 6. ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FOR SERIOUS REPAIR. Ultherapy or Ultracel is your best non-surgical option for deeper, more stubborn lines and sagging. The FDA-approved treatment uses heat generated by focused sonic waves to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Take note that the effect is gradual, and most patients notice a lifting effect three to six months after the initial treatment, so be patient.

Should You Get Laser Hair Removal - Pros And Cons
The truth is that when it comes to removing body hair, you have options, and you should weigh them all before making a decision. You can quickly shave everything away, but hair grows back in a matter of days. Depilatory creams dissolve hair in seconds, but they smell like a wet dog mixed with gasoline. If you want to remove hair more thoroughly, you could try waxing or sugaring, which snatches the hair at the root. Hair doesn't grow back for weeks, but waxing is a painful procedure that causes itching when the hair grows back. There are more long-term options, such as electrolysis. Electrolysis involves inserting a super-fine needle into each hair follicle to deliver an electric current that kills the hair follicle. If you think it sounds painful, you'd be correct, and a session can be time-consuming. That brings us to laser hair removal, a popular semi-permanent hair removal method that damages the hair follicle in order to reduce hair growth. The laser detects hair solely by focusing on pigment cells found in the hair follicle. The laser burns all the way down the hair follicle and root once the melanin in the hair is targeted. You can throw away your razor and cancel your waxing appointments after a few sessions. But, before you book your first session, we've broken down the benefits and drawbacks of laser hair removal. Let's look at the benefits and drawbacks of laser hair removal. What are the advantages? While laser hair removal does not permanently remove hair, it does significantly reduce hair growth to the point where you can stop shaving. It can be done anywhere on the body, and the machine can cover large areas quickly. The legs, the back, the underarms, the bikini line, the stomach, the face... There are no restrictions on where you can get laser hair removal. In terms of pain, laser hair removal is somewhere between shaving (painless) and waxing (holy hell that hurts). It also becomes less painful as the treatments progress and the hair becomes finer. What are the disadvantages? It's a lengthy procedure. A laser hair removal session on the underarms takes less than a minute. However, it takes several sessions to see real results, ranging from three to eight depending on the size of the area, and you must usually wait four weeks between treatments. It is pricey. If you add up how much you've spent on razors and bikini wax sessions over the course of your life, the $200-$400 per session of laser hair removal may be worth it. Consider laser hair removal to be a beauty investment. Laser hair removal works best on fair skin with dark hair and worse on darker skin because the contrast between the colour of the skin and the colour of the pigment in the hair follicle allows the laser to easily pick out what to target. In patients with darker skin tones, the pigment-rich skin competes for the laser's attention with the hair follicle. This isn't to say that it isn't a possibility for people with darker skin, but you'll want to make sure the facility you visit is properly equipped. On all skin types, certain lasers, such as the Nd:YAG, are better at distinguishing between hair and skin. Laser hair removal may result in burns or scars on the skin if performed by an untrained technician. Regrettably, licencing procedures differ from state to state, and in some cases, there are no requirements at all. Be wary of "laser centres," and make sure to ask where your laser technician received his or her certification to perform the procedure. Even a dermatologist who wishes to provide laser hair removal treatments must undergo additional training. Because laser treatment is not taught in medical school, physicians who perform laser treatments must also be trained and certified.

COMING SOON! MAC Collection: Selena Quintanilla
MAC Cosmetics has done it again. Selena fans get ready to run to your nearest MAC counter towards the end of 2016 because our favorite cosmetic company is releasing a makeup collection with your favorite latino. The latin pop sensation was extremely gorgeous and her voice was perfect -- which means, that the collection will mimic her beauty. We are hoping for pops of color and bright reds, a color that she often wore. Whether you're a fan or not, there is no doubt in my mind that this collection would be pretty close to perfect. This collection was made possible all because of a fan who created a petition on change.org earlier this year. Thanks to the 37,000 supporters and fans this MAC collection has become a reality. MAC's creative director/vice president chimed in saying, "Selena's talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colorful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades. We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies MAC's philosophy." Her sister even voiced her excitement saying, "I am so excited that MAC Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena. Helping to create this collection brings me back to all those late night conversations on our tour bus when she spoke of having her own makeup line one day. If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made." Next year seems so far away, but there's no doubt in my mind that this collection won't be worth the wait. Thanks to MAC and all of the true Selena fans for allowing this beauties legacy and beauty to live on forever. "If you have a dream, don't let anybody take it away." - Selena Quintanilla
Best cleansing oils & cleansing waters for sensitive skin
Hello! This is mikayla. I only used cleansing oils and waters to remove makeup - so today, I'm going to show you my favorite types of oils and waters! :) I am prone to acnes and I do have many breakouts due to sensitive skin type :'(!! My skin type is sensitive, but I would say it's combination of both oily and dry skin (lol I know my skin type is very complexed!). So people with sensitive skin type as me, follow along! 1. Bielenda Rose Oil for Sensitive Skin I actually love this product! This is one of the best cleansing oils I've ever used. Its scent is wonderful and it's oil to milk formula. It easily erases every part of your makeup. I highly recommend this item :p Oh and also, I got this at ROSS so yeah, it was cheap. I think it was around $6-7. 2. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water (for sensitive skin) This one is also one of my favorite! This is perfect for sensitive skin types because it's "water" type. I heard from my dermatologist that using oil is not a good way for removing makeup especially for those people with sensitive skin types! It's affordable, it's every where (Ralphs, CVS, Walgreens, etc) 3. Lancome Bi-facil Non-oily cleanser I personally recommend this item (even tho this product is sorta pricy...haha). It's because I hated the greasy texture the cleansing water has. Sometimes it feels like I have oils on top of my face after removing the makeup. So! I recommend this item for a non-oily product. 4. Neutrogena oil-free eye makeup remover Well, they call this oil-free but I don't understand why.... it's literally splited in to water and oil when I purchased this item lol. But! the price is nice and it really does erase well :) So I recommend this product. It gets a bit oily, so you definitely have to cleanse once more though.
