More than just an aesthetic function, taking care of the skin is actually an important part of caring for the health of the body. The reason is, more and more skincare consumersare literate about the function of the skincare contentthey use. Healthy skin is also the dream of skincare product users, including in Indonesia.
In the midst of uncertainty in the third year of the pandemic, the fact is that beauty products are still growing and innovating throughout 2022. As a recap before closing 2022, what is the trend of using beauty products this year?
Jakpat as a provider of market research and consumer research services published the 2022 Beauty Trends Report to see trends in the skincare products usage throughout 2022 in Indonesia. This report is based on a survey of 3131 female and male respondents who use skincare and cosmetic products. What do respondents say about the skincare and cosmetics they use throughout 2022? Check out the following interesting findings!
Growing Rapidly, Local Skincare Products Are Increasingly in Demand
Local skincare products and cosmetics have captured the hearts of the users in Indonesia. This is in line with the findings of Jakpat, where 7 out of 10 respondents also claimed to be interested in locally made skincare products and cosmetics. Among the 45 brands that are included in the Top Brand Used Most Often (BUMO) by respondents, 49% of them are local brands. In fact, some local beauty brands included in the Top BUMO in more than 10 products.
Apparently, local skincare and cosmetic products have the quality that is not inferior to imported products. It can be seen from 80% of respondents feel that local skincare products are more suitable for their skin condition. Meanwhile, 82% of respondents agreed that local cosmetic products suit their needs for makeup compared to imported cosmetic products.
Of course, this makes competition between local and international brands tighter in the Indonesian consumer market. Because local brand innovation continues to run and makes the various products they produce more competitive in the market.
Today’s Men as Skincare Users: The Skincare Market for Men
Although often associated with women, in fact, skincare is also a basic need for men. Men’s enthusiasm in using skincare can be seen in this report, where 64% of male respondents admitted to using skincare products.
Men’s skincare patterns are indeed quite unique this year. The reason is, serum products are the second top product used by male respondents. Meanwhile, face wash remains the most used skincare product by male respondents in 2022. The dominance of the use of facial wash is still the same as the findings in the previous Beauty Trends report in 2021, where face wash is the most frequently used skincare in everyday life.
There are 70% of male respondents admitted to using skincare products to achieve the skin condition they want. So what is the ideal skin condition in their opinion? The ideal skin condition according to most male respondents in this survey is acne-free, bright, as well as blackhead-free skin. Unfortunately, the skin condition of most respondents has not matched the ideal skin perception.
Even though it has gone through a long pandemic period, in fact, our consumers still pay attention to their skin condition, including male consumers in Indonesia. Reflecting on existing trends, it seems that beauty producers, especially local brands, are required to continue to innovate so that their products are in accordance with the needs of Indonesian consumers in 2023.
