Focused on the metropolitan marketplace

Tony Craske, Azelis’ market segment director for personal care, explains: ‘Mintel research data shows that 7.4 percent of all facial skin care launches in Asia Pacific incorporate an anti-pollution claim, with 6.4 percent in Europe. Nearly 4 000 beauty care product launches globally between 2009 and 2013 included the word “pollution” in their description. This progression demonstrates the substantial opportunity to develop personal care solutions for the metropolitan marketplace.’
