In personal care products, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) was previously utilized in high-end skin care formulations. However, with continuous technological advancements, the cost and difficulty in extracting and processing HA has decreased. HA has been gradually used in low-end formulations and has expanded the scope of application of these products. The companies are recognizing the opportunities for targeting Generation Z. They are launching various cost-effective products that suit best Gen Z consumers. For instance, in September 2022, OLAY launched Regenerist Hyaluronic + Peptide24 Collection for longer and better hydration of the skin at a lower cost compared to other luxury products. The product is recommended for all age groups including Gen Z.

Furthermore, the shift from a glamorous look to a healthy look is impacting the market. Consumers are becoming more tech-savvy, concerned about sustainable manufacturing, and inclined toward custom-made solutions than ever before. Changing perceptions of clean and natural ingredients are challenging top personal care brands to diversify their portfolios to include authenticated and innovative products.

Due to the booming demand for cosmeceuticals and growing medical beauty trends, the personal care products market has the opportunity to offer innovative and personalized products to skin care-conscious consumers. The companies are investing in various combination products to deliver the efficacy that customers seek. For instance, in March 2022, Givaudan Active Beauty launched the patented Cristalhyal e-Perfection, a complex of high molecular weight HA and bentonite clay, manufactured through the process of iontophoresis.

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The COVID-19 pandemic created a financial and medical crisis globally, and resources were shifted toward clinically necessary products. The pandemic hindered the manufacturing and industrial supply chain of HA, which hampered the manufacturing of HA personal care products during the early stage of the pandemic.

Post-COVID-19 pandemic, the sale of skin health products is expected to increase to reach pre-pandemic levels. For instance, the skin health segment sales of Johnson & Johnson reached USD 4.5 billion in 2021 with an increase of 2% from 2019.

Many companies with a wide range of HA personal care products reported a high decline in net sales as well as a drop in sales for HA-based products. Moreover, brick-and-mortar drug stores and mass markets reported a huge decline in sales during the pandemic owing to traveling restrictions, whereas e-commerce sales of HA-based beauty care products boomed during the pandemic.

The pandemic resulted in increased consciousness of skincare and increased popularity of plant-based or natural products for rejuvenating and protecting the skin. As per the data collected from U.S. web searches from April 2020 to March 2021 versus April 2021 to March 2022, HA topped the rising suncare constituents with an average of 1,900 monthly searches.


Beauty, personal care, and cosmetics influencers have a strong role in purchasing power of consumers. Consumers rely on influencers to make choices for products. According to the survey conducted by the Harvard Business School in August 2019, around 62% of women respondents followed beauty influencers on social media, around 67% of respondents seek information regarding products from social media influencers, around 59% of respondents seek information from third-party reviews, and around 55% respondents seek information from beauty professionals.

Type Insights

The creams segment dominated the market and accounted for the highest revenue share in 2022. This is attributed to the lower cost associated with the product compared to serums and the lower concentration of the active ingredient in the formulation. Moreover, creams are gentler on the skin, unlike serums, which can over-exfoliate it. In addition, the creams are used with the serums to offer better all-day hydration.

The serum segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to better penetration associated with serums, as they are not diluted with moisturizers and have higher concentrations of active ingredients. The higher efficacy of a serum formulation provides hydrating effects to the skin. According to a study of 40 women aged 30 to 65 years, published in Springer in 2021, the HA serum improved skin hydration immediately post application, and at 6th week of application, the smoothness of skin increased by 64%, plumping by 60%, hydration by 63%, fine lines by 31%, and wrinkles by 14%.

The other product segment is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. This segment includes HA-based emulsions, shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, etc. HA has proven to be effective for itchy hair, dry scalp, & rough hair. HA also potentially reduces dandruff. the growing interest of market leaders in other types of HA-based products is driving market growth. For instance, in September 2022, L'oreal Paris launched Hyaluron Moisture 72Hr shampoo for a long-lasting hydrating effect on hair.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific region dominated the market in 2022 and is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. The market growth in the region can be attributed to the growing awareness regarding skincare and the presence of major global players in the region. The demand for hyaluronic acid personal care products is rising among the population owing to increased awareness regarding its positive effects on the skin. For instance, on 18 June 2019, one of the biggest shopping festivals in China led by Taobao, L’Oréal reported more than USD 29 million (200 million yuan) in sales of its high-concentration hyaluronic acid eye cream.

North America region is projected to witness the significant growth during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the changing consumer preferences towards experimenting with new products for enhancing their skin appearance. Moreover, the companies are launching innovative campaigns to attract more customer base through online-retail channels. For instance, in March 2022, Cetaphil launched a virtual marketing campaign as Cetaphil premiered Sensitive Skincare Awareness Month, which offers guidance on the care and treatment of all kinds of skin.

Europe held a significant market share in 2022 owing to increase in the presence of international brands in the European market and improvement in people’s health, wellbeing & confidence through these brands.
