Inclusivity has been a market trend in cosmetics for a few years, but at NYSCC Supplier’s Day, inclusive ingredients were one of the dominant trends.
NYSCC returned for the second time since COVID shut down trade shows, and despite the short six-month gap between this and the last Supplier’s Day, there were distinctly different trends on the show floor.
While suppliers want to meet manufacturers and brands where they’re at in the market, they also showcase their trend forecasting innovations at Supplier’s Day. Below are three of the big trends CosmeticsDesign saw at the show.
Curly hair care ingredients
Many exhibitors large and small came to Supplier's Day with ingredients and kits for curly hair types, often focused on Black hair care. While the Black haircare market is a multi-billion dollar segment, many experts say it has been under-researched for decades in the US.
