Cosmetic ingredients are chemicals used in personal care products such as shampoos, soap, lotions, powders and perfumes. Cosmetic and personal care products play a significant role in our lives, not just to enhance our aesthetic beauty but for well being too.For instance, toothpaste and sun creams are used for well being and skin care, while moisturizers and hair care products such as shampoos are used as grooming products. Cosmetic ingredients are categorized as organic and synthetic.Organic ingredients are extracted from natural sources. These ingredients include plant extract, vitamins, waxes, proteins, oils & fats, thickening agents, additives and preservatives. Growing health concern and increasing demand for environment friendly products is expected to lead to a rapid transition from synthetic cosmetics ingredients such as aluminum salt, paraben, phthalates and petrochemicals products towards organic substitutes.

Hair and skin care cosmetics ingredients is expected to dominate the global cosmetic ingredients.Demand for natural hair care without ammonia, paraben and sulfur is increasing at a rapid pace.Consumers are increasingly inclined towards hair care products for dandruff protection and hair fall control. Anti-aging skin product segment is expected to gain rapid traction over the following few years.Increasing inclination of men towards aesthetic appeal is a major trend in the market and a highly lucrative growth opportunity that market players are focusing on capitalizing upon.

Surfactants are the basic raw materials used in various cosmetic products which includes, hair care, skin care and various male grooming products. In line with the global trend of adopting organic products, manufacturing companies are focusing on extracting surfactants from natural sources such as coconut oil and palm oil. Also, cosmetics manufacturing companies largely prefer bio-based polymer to ensure adherence to stringent regulations regarding synthetic polymer products. Conditioning polymer find wide application in shampoo and hair conditioner.Increasing health awareness is influencing consumers to protect against harmful UV rays and enrich skin with antioxidant rich products. This in turn is expected to fuel growth of the preservatives segment.
