February 22, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
In 2015, sales of prestige beauty products in France declined 0.9 percent, according to The NPD Group.

Also, selective perfume sales dropped 1.6 percent in 2015 compared with 2014, caused by poor sales in November and December.

Unilever Seeks Patent For Technology Developed To Prolong Fragrance Release

January 27, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Unilever applied for a U.S. patent for a technology it claims is designed to prolong fragrance release from perfumes and personal care products. According to details of the patent application, the use of tricyclo-decane amide prevents the fast volatilization of the highly volatile fragrance components when the personal care composition is applied to skin or hair. Also, the inventors theorized that the “cage” structure of the amides may interact specifically with highly volatile fragrances to reduce their headspace vapor pressure, prolonging their release.

Global Luxury Sector Faces Threat Of Rising Instability In Emerging Markets

January 17, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
In 2016, various developments and trends are forecast to influence future directions for the global luxury goods industry, according to Euromonitor. Rising instability in emerging markets poses the biggest threat to the segment; however, marginally stronger economic growth in Western Europe and North America could give global brands a break. Burberry CEO and creative director Christopher Bailey is expected to give up one of his positions in the company. Market leader LVMH is expected to acquire Italy-based Tod’s to compensate for its exposure in Asia Pacific. Ralph Lauren CEO Stefan Larsson is expected to increase its offerings of affordable luxury fashion.

World Cosmetics Market Continues Move Toward Cruelty-Free Products

January 13, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
After the European Union banned animal testing for cosmetics in 2013, a number of countries have also outlawed the practice. Although some cosmetics companies still use animals to test the safety of their products before releasing to the market, consumers are increasingly voicing their opposition to the cruel practice, with 57 percent of adults surveyed by Nielsen saying they prefer products with packaging that indicates the manufacturer did not perform animal testing. There are alternatives to animal testing, including in vitro testing and the use of human skin equivalent systems. Manufacturers can also use established ingredients to ensure that their products are safe for humans. Obstacles to achieving “animal testing free” status include the animal testing law in China, one of the world’s largest cosmetics market, and government policies that neither ban nor encourage animal testing in Japan.

Data from market research firm Technavio forecast the global haircare market will expand at a CAGR of 3 percent in 2016–2019 to reach $91 billion.
