“Clean and Green Reigns Supreme” and Our Top Beauty Trends from Cosmoprof North America 2018

Executive Summary

The Coresight Research team attended Cosmoprof North America 2018 in Las Vegas from July 28 to July 31, where our CEO and Founder, Deborah Weinswig, presented during a panel session called “Rise of Pop-Ups (Pop-Up Push).” Cosmoprof is the leading B2B beauty trade show in North America, drawing over 33,000 attendees and 1,015 exhibitors from 39 countries. Here we share the key beauty trends from the event:

  • Functional skincare was the main focus at Cosmoprof 2018; there was very little buzz about traditional color cosmetic products at the show.
  • The clean and “free-from” beauty category is trending upward across skincare and haircare products.
  • An anti-Amazon sentiment among brands seemed to pervade at the conference, due to the presence of counterfeits and the lack of brand protection.
  • There was a lot of conversation about cannabis beauty products at Cosmoprof, although very few products containing cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found in the cannabis plant, were actually on display.
  • High-performing, plant-based skincare products are growing in popularity.
