Preservatives are substances mainly used to prevent the formation of microorganisms across various products. Cosmetic preservatives are used in personal care products to prevent spoilage due to microbial growth and therefore increase their shelf life. Cosmetic preservatives are added to personal care products such as lotions, facemasks, sunscreens, shampoos, and others to prevent undesirable chemical changes or microbial growth. Without preservatives, products can become contaminated, which may lead to product spoilage and possibly cause infections.
The major drivers for the cosmetic preservatives market include increase in purchasing power of consumers, increase in female working population and shelf life enhancement of cosmetic products. High cost of organic products, stringent regulatory norms and possibilities of skin infections can restrain the market from growing. Some of the opportunities for manufacturers include increasing demand in Asia Pacific region, rising demand for natural and organic preservatives in cosmetics and increasing focus on male-specific cosmetics. The major challenges faced by the manufacturers are demand for paraben-free preservatives in cosmetics and high prices of organic and natural cosmetic preservatives. The global cosmetic preservatives market is estimated to be USD 410 million in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 562 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.5% between 2022 and 2027.
