Consumers around the world are seeking a differentiated skin experience that is aspirational in its ritualistic regimen, eclectic in its variety of product forms, innovative in its choice of advanced ingredient technologies, and is treatment-focused in the benefits it provides. Facial masks were historically viewed as a more ritualistic way to cleanse the skin, but over the last decade these products, and their claims, have migrated towards more results-focused claims. This has positioned facial treatment masques as a good option for to meet consumers needs, and it helps to explain the relatively robust retail sales growth facial masks have experienced across all geographies over the last few years. 

Treatment masques offer consumers benefits, which include:

  • Unique sensory experiences: Consumers are looking to product forms that provide enjoyable textures and ritualistic experiences. Because of their premium positioning, treatment masques are often available to provide a broad range of sensory formats.

  • Tech-Driven Treatment: Consumers are becoming more accepting of in-home treatment solutions. The emergence of beauty devices both reflects and supports this new attitude. Because of their long(er) contact time with the skin, the mask product form can be understood as a possible quasi-treatment delivery solution.

  • Pro-Aging and Protection. Building on the ‘Tech-Driven Treatment’ trend, inclusion of efficacious active ingredients into the mask product format helps to position treatment masques as a new form of in-home treatment ‘device’ that can provide ‘pro-aging’ or ‘aging protection’ benefits.

With more consumers turning to treatment masques, Evonik has developed six diverse formulations for brand owners to consider as they explore line extensions to capitalize on this growing trend.
