The Active Ingredients Market in Asia

The Active Ingredients Market in Asia

Specialty ingredients have the largest growth potential within the personal care ingredients business, with Europe and the United States representing the two biggest markets. Next in line: China and Japan.

In a special presentation given at the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists Suppliers' Day, Kline's Vice President of Chemicals,  Nikola Matic, zeroed in on the active ingredients market in Asia, taking a deep dive into China. Among his revelations regarding the country: Multinational active ingredient suppliers and cosmetics brands are building factories there in the aftermath of COVID-19; regulatory challenges such as those by the National Medical Products Administration restricts live cells usage in skin care product, which limits further development of the market for probiotics, stem cell extracts, and more; and the "skinification" of hair is rising in popularity.
