The professional skin care market in Europe and the U.S. continues to register strong growth in 2018, according to our soon-to-be-published Professional Skin Care Global Series report. The increase in both these markets is mainly driven by the medical and retail channels, and consumer demand is high for products containing retinols, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C in both markets.
The professional skin care market in Europe continues on a steady growth trajectory, completing another dynamic year in 2018 and registering higher growth than the year prior. The U.K. registers the highest growth of over 6%, followed by Poland. However, all other segments comprising smaller markets, including Scandinavia and the Nordics, register strong growth in 2018.
