Skincare

No. of Pages : N/A

The men’s facial skincare category shows evidence of having reached its peak, with a plateau in value in 2016 and an estimated decline in 2017. With NPD falling, there is little to entice new users to enter the sector, whilst low usage frequency amongst existing users is further stifling the value of the category.
