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.

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

Today's saturated and fragmented influencer landscape is starting to have adverse effects. New influential figures, driven by their ability to mobilize and motivate people, are taking the spotlight in 2020 and beyond.

Then a new people-powered hero came into the spotlight: the influencer. While 'end of the influencer' discourse has been ramping up over the last year, the truth is influencers maintain relevance as a marketing tool, but not as much for immediate conversion.
In 2020, influencers are competing with creators and thought leaders, each of which are positioned to effectively engage their audiences through entertainment and information. As a result, the advocate takes center stage, becoming a new standard for marketers to evaluate and select their brand partners.
