Analyst Review

Inclusion of natural/organic ingredients in cosmetics and personal care products was the key success factor responsible for the revenue growth of new entrants as well as established players. Consumers are actively looking for more advanced, user friendly, cost effective skin care products and rely on natural ingredients in their cosmetic product. Natural essential oil is one of the key ingredients used in many personal care products such as soap, powder, and shampoo. Herbal and plant essential oils have large demand in the market. However, changing climatic conditions and substandard quality of products/ingredient product from herbs and plant had increased the demand-supply gap in essential oil. This increased demand-supply gap results in price inflation in essential oil, thereby increasing the overall cost of finished products. The essential oil soaps are largely manufactured by private/small scale business.

The unorganized nature of the market decrease the overall bargaining power of buyer in essential oil soap market. However, improvements in soap manufacturing, and essential oil extraction processes are anticipated to help in reducing overall cost of manufacturing. Moreover, the active participation of global e-commerce companies by providing sale platforms of small scale companies further propel the revenue growth of the essential oil soap market.
