When Allon Libermann set out to launch Forgo, his new line of powder-to-liquid hand washes, he had something to prove.
“Sustainable manufacturing is super easy to do, if you just do it,” he argues. “Big companies are spending huge budgets on research and development, and even larger budgets on marketing themselves as sustainable without really showing the data or the metrics or making the changes that count, whereas we’ve been able to put in a lot of sweat capital in terms of hours of our own time, but, from a financial perspective, we’re able to develop formulas very cost-effectively with our problem-solving and collaboration.”
Libermann estimates that Forgo’s launch, led by a group of three co-founders, cost roughly $5,000. “The solutions are out there, they’re obvious, they’re accessible,” he says. “It’s really just the companies who are stuck in old business.”

Despite the disruption to new product development (NPD), especially at the onset of the COVID-19 crisis – and a difficult year for beauty sales – beauty and personal care (BPC) brands continued to innovate in 2020.
In fact, Mintel Global New Products Database (GNPD) featured over 180,000 new BPC products/variants in 2020. Along the way, 2020 also brought us new buzzwords, some of which may stick with us long into 2021. For example, ‘maskne’, ‘quarantine sunburn’, ‘beauty insperiences’, ‘COVID-washing,’ ‘lockdown face’ and more.
Mintel analysts have reviewed these thousands of BPC launches, and below are a few of our favorite innovations.
BPC brands can look forward to a more hopeful 2021. Once vaccination programs are complete, we expect joyful and uplifting themes to emerge to help us celebrate overcoming an unprecedented pandemic.Read Story
