Acids are a long-time hot topic amongst skin influencers. Yet, they are no longer only associated with skincare products. They’ve started to become a strong asset for haircare product ranges.

Salicylic, glycolic or hyaluronic acids are emerging ingredients for hair scrubs and shampoos. For Skinfluencers, they are particularly beneficial to ease itchiness and calm the scalp. They also describe acids as great allies to deep cleanse the hair and eliminate product build-up.

Acids in haircare products are also spotted in publications written by skin consumers. They use them as gentle treatment for their scalp and act as early adopters of these new ranges. These profiles tend to consider their scalp as a continuity of their skin and thus, use the same products.

    “Fragrance primers” answer the key lasting need in the US

    Some products have appeared on the market to meet consumer’s high expectations in terms of scent lasting, while consumers also find ways by themselves to meet this main need. Indeed, their enthusiasm for fragrance hacks through skincare shows that there is great potential for a hybrid fragrance skincare.
    On TikTok, the hashtag #fragrancehack generated 19,8M views, and mainly shows consumers who share their hacks for longer lasting fragrance through skincare: they apply vaseline, body lotion, or body oil on their skin before spraying perfume. Their videos for lasting hacks tend to generate between 500k and 2M views. Consumers appear to understand the importance of hydration and skin prep to boost fragrance lasting.

    The hashtag #AccidentallyVegan helps UK and FR users identify unsuspected vegan products

    Especially in the UK and to a lesser extent in FR, vegan consumers are systematically on the hunt for new products, be they from dedicated vegan ranges or just regular products that happen to be free of animal products. For the latter, exist the hashtag #AccidentallyVegan where users list products that were not intentionally created to be marketed to vegan eaters (and thus, not especially advertised as vegan).
    That way, some products, such as Oreos, Bisto gravy or Speculoos have gained “cult” status amongst this community of vegan users, being sometimes life-savior products due to their ready availability in shops and not just in specialized vegan shops. Removing a small ingredient and creating a new “cult” item would guarantee a solid fan base.
