What’s Driving Demand for UV Boosters?

“Rising Awareness Regarding Harmful Effects of Sun on the Skin”

Exposure to the sun is necessary for the production of vitamin D in the body, which helps in calcium absorption, leading to stronger bones and teeth. However, sun exposure for longer-than-safe durations can have a negative impact on the skin, resulting in skin problems such as hyperpigmentation, ageing, wrinkles, and freckles.

The sun’s ultraviolet rays directly penetrate the skin, which can damage the elastic protein fibre inside the skin, called elastin. Sun exposure can cause coarse wrinkles on the skin, sallowness, and cancerous skin lesions in extreme cases. UV radiation is one of the leading causes of skin cancer, which can be avoided by using sun care products. Rising awareness about the use of sunscreen products is set to drive the demand for UV boosters that are used to increase the SPF in these products.

“Growing Trend of Natural & Organic Products”

Due to the growing knowledge about the advantages of natural and organic ingredients, consumer preference for clean and green-labelled personal care and cosmetic goods is increasing substantially. Since chemical or synthetic products include hazardous chemicals, consumers are choosing greener alternatives more frequently.

Natural skin care products have the nutrients required to enrich the skin and improve its tone, texture, and appearance. This is increasing consumer demand for organic products, which will bolster the consumption of UV boosters that are used in organic sunscreen products for various applications such as skincare, makeup, etc.

“Getting Certifications & Clinical Approvals Will Help Convince End-Use Industries about Product Quality”

Manufacturers should focus on clinical approvals and certifications from various government-approved authorities in the countries where they are operating and selling their UV boosters. Each country has a different set of rules to follow for the making of UV boosters and other ingredients that form the feature of protection from the sun. Developing the product accordingly and making customizations will help manufacturers grow their business and revenue.
