SUN CARE MARKET

The global Sun Care market is driven by better education and understanding of the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays on the skin. Other factors in the growth of this market are product innovations such as anti-aging, hypoallergenic, and intense repair properties. Current product development involves the use of nanotechnology to micronize sun care ingredients such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide in order to achieve higher levels of SPF (Sun Protection Factor).

The global sun care market is segmented into sun protection, after sun products, and self-tanning products. Sun protection or sunscreen has the largest market share of the three segments and is available in a variety of SPF grades. The higher the SPF number, the more sun protection it provides. Sun care comes in an assortment of forms including creams, gels, lotions, powders, liquid, wipes, sprays, and tinted. Creams/lotions represent the largest form of the sun care market because of the moisturizing benefits and ease of use.

TRENDS IN SUN CARE

The sun care market is also experiencing a strong demand for sun care formulations with natural and organic ingredients due to health concerns related to chemical and physical sunscreen ingredients. If your product is organic or natural, FMI is qualified to manufacture and package it. FMI is CCOF certified so you can be confident that we maintain the integrity of your organic product. CCOF stands for California Certified Organic Farmers which is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) accredited organic certifying agency and trade association. CCOF is one of the first organic certifying agencies and their organic certification standards were used as the foundation for the USDA National Organic Program which made “certified organic” a federally regulated claim.

The Natural Products Association is the largest and oldest nonprofit organization representing the interests of manufacturers and retailers of the natural products market, which includes organic and health foods, dietary supplements, natural ingredient cosmetics, and other similar products.
