target skin care products to millennials South Jordan

If you have designed or marketed cosmeceuticals for a while, you know that anti-aging products have experienced vigorous sales from the 40-and-over demographic for many years now. Though there will always be a demand for high-end gene-expression and neuro-peptide products that treat mature skin, make sure that while catering to the boomers you don’t miss the millennial bonanza.

First off, lets look at some numbers so we know who we are referring to. This is from the Pew Research Center:

“Millennials, whom we define as those ages 18-34 in 2015, now number 75.4 million, surpassing the 74.9 million Baby Boomers (ages 51-69). And Generation X (ages 35-50 in 2015) is projected to pass the Boomers in population by 2028.”1

Selfies are Shaping Buying Habits

Instagram has brought the make-up artistry terms strobe, tontouring (not a typo, it really starts with a “T”), baking, and cut creasing into the mainstream. Sales of facial masks has increased as users proudly show their masked faces on social media. Anyone can learn to use products like a make-up pro and snap a selfie to prove it. But first you need all those concealers, primers, highlighters, moisturizers, and luminizers.

Millennials want products that furnish instant results instead of skin care regimes designed for long-term use and they are not loyal to one specific brand, preferring to mix and match mainstream brands with independents. Other trends include all-natural, clinical, multicultural, and make-up/skin care hybrids.

“The market shift creates an opening for small, nimble skin-care brands that target Millennial desires.”2 -Allison Collins, WWD
