What ingredients will be found in all beauty products this year? A little zoom on the stars of 2020!
Just as some fashionable patterns are found on all the clothes in the stores, in beauty, there are often trends in the ingredients found in cosmetics.
Last year, for example, hyaluronic acid and coconut oil were literally everywhere, as well as retinol (which is more about anti-aging cosmetics, which is why I didn’t tell you about it on madmoiZelle).
So here are the ingredients that you’ll probably find in a lot of beauty products in 2020!
Hemp, you may have started to see it at the end of 2019, it’s the new re-statement of cosmetics.
I would even say more, “CBD is the new coconut”.
But while coconut oil has never been my thing, I’m very happy to see hemp oil becoming more and more popular because it’s really a great ingredient for all skin types!
Anti-oxidant, rebalancing, soothing, nourishing, rich in vitamins… It is suitable for both dry and oily skin, and can even be used in hair!
So it’s no surprise that you’ll see it appear in the beauty section of your favourite supermarket, whether it’s for face, body or hair care.
After hyaluronic acid, vitamins of all kinds will be jostling for the cream tubes all over the world!
Vitamin C for radiance, vitamin A for anti-ageing effects (the famous retinol I’m talking about above), but especially the B vitamins that are becoming more and more popular.
Panthenol (vitamin B5), for example, has soothing properties on the skin, as explained by Aroma-Zone, and improves hair health.
Niacinamide (vitamin B3), which is already starting to be seen everywhere, helps reduce redness, diminishes the appearance of pores and regulates sebum (according to an article in Paula’s Choice).
Finally, Vitamin E (Tocopherol) is also present in many beauty products as it preserves skin moisture and delays aging, and is a good preservative.
As mentioned by Essence.com, Manuka honey is also one of the ingredients that will be the talk of the town this year.
The Manuka tree grows specifically in New Zealand and Australia, and the honey extracted from it has very powerful healing properties (according to Health Magazine) due to its high content of methylglyoxal.
It is therefore an ingredient of choice for problem skin, whether acne-prone or very sensitive.
It is not only used in cosmetics but also in the medical field.
However, Manuka honey is still a rare commodity, so expect products containing it to be relatively expensive.
And that’s it for the ingredients that should be talked about in this new year!
