Top Hero Extracts ‘Skintellectuals’ Seek

Top Hero Extracts ‘Skintellectuals’ Seek

In the personal care space, brands are more frequently formulating their products with ingredients to meet the concerns of ‘conscious consumers.’ Considering purpose along with performance, natural, plant-based ingredients are taking priority, especially when they are substantiated by science.

And beyond the brand or product format, Vogue Business claims that beauty consumers have a bigger priority than ever – star ingredients. From Anthocyanin to Vitamin C, skintellectuals are less inclined to align with brands, and more with unique sources of the ingredients they seek.  The Hut Group (THG), Cult Beauty Owner, reports that ingredient searches, in contrast to brand names or claims, have begun to increase rapidly, “growing over 229% year on year,” according to Rachel Horsefield, chief executive of THG Beauty. And the numbers don’t lie. Ingredient-led brands like The Inkey List or The Ordinary are seeing exponential revenue growth.


Hero Ingredients may encompass a range of natural molecules for multi-functionality, whilst helping simplify ingredient lists. Hero Ingredients are backed by scientific analysis, are able to be used for various concerns and target applications, and have a transparent and ethical source. These superheroes may not wear capes, but they come to the rescue for products lost in the crowd, giving any old cleanser or cream a new unique identity and story to share.

So, whether you are targeting hydration, antioxidants, well-aging, hair & scalp care, eye area, or blemish prone skin, we are featuring the top botanical heroes to build your next top-seller from, or to refresh your existing range with.
