The Cosmeceutical Chronicles—Tipping and Trendy


The new year typically ushers in change, goal setting, market projections, fresh trends (or rather recycled trends in "new clothing") and hopeful outlooks. If all of that is true then we're right on track, as this year we're definitely changing things up (more deets to come), we've set some serious goals and our Top 10 Trends report that's set to roll out Feb. 13 is chock full of market projects, and fresh and recycled (think Versace vintage , not Goodwill) trends. As for hopeful outlooks—are there any other kind?

To give you a preview of the cosmeceutical market from our view, here are the top 10 market segments that are trending; or tipping the cosmeceutical mirror, warranting a closer view due to new developments, data and/or research.

  3. Natural & Organic 
  4. Packaging
