Science-Based Innovation Drives European Face Care Market; France Still Biggest Spender

October 5, 2010: 01:32 AM EST

New products that leverage biochemical and medical advances, and especially those that address aging are driving the face care market in Europe. Popular technologies include stem cell technology, DNA repair, peptide chains, and sirtuins. Mintel estimates that nearly two-thirds (62%) of French women use anti-wrinkle cream compared to 60% in Italy, 55% in Spain, 51% in the UK and 49% in Germany. European women are primarily concerned with fine lines and wrinkles (with a proportion that peaks at 63% in France and Spain), dark circles and bags under the eyes (peaking at 49% in Britain), sagging skin (43% in Germany) and stretch marks (45% in Italy). Mintel also estimates that the face care market in Europe’s five largest markets (France, Italy, Germany, UK and Spain) was €6.1 billion in 2009 and projects it will reach €6.5 billion by 2013.
