Future Beauty Landscape
A booming men’s market, beauty retail franchises and a plethora of gender identifications--not to mention skin tones--will define and direct the beauty market in 2030, according to research presented by the 2014 graduates of FIT’s Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing and Management Master of Professional Studies. The students showcased their findings at the annual Capstone presentation—their culminating project—attended by 700 industry execs on June 4.
In partnership with Unilever U.S., the Capstone explored The Changing Face of the Beauty Consumer. “This particular topic could not be more appropriate for this moment in time,” said keynote speaker Gina Boswell, Executive Vice President Personal Care, Unilever NA. “The changing face of the beauty consumer may be the single largest factor to affect our industry in the coming years.”
The student research comprised three key areas: Accessible Beauty, The New Beauty Consumer and Men’s Beauty.
Accessible Beauty
“Accessibility is not a fad, it’s something that companies at all levels need to be aware of, and must be a part of,” said group leader Jessica Dudley, Director, Lancôme. Even more than today, consumers will be connected by technology and make purchase decisions based on convenience, clarity and cash. By 2030, global poverty will decline by 50%, yet many developed economies are projected to remain flat. Given the tighter budgets and intense connectivity, the group dubbed future consumers Progressive Rationalists. -
The students proposed a new marketing model called the Progressive Consumption Equation: [function + higher order need] + performance = purchase. In addition to being fully aware of a product’s benefits, these consumers want to their purchase to better the world in some way and demand radical transparency regarding a company’s philanthropy, profits, and resources. Point of purchase must be inherently easy and the student’s used the franchise success of Subway restaurants as a future model for beauty.
The New Beauty Consumer
“By 2050, the largest ethnic group in the US will be mixed ethnicity,” said group leader Roshini Greenwald, Assistant Vice President of Sales Development, Kiehl’s Since 1851. And for the first time in history people aged 65 and older will outnumber the young. “Others” are on the rise, the research showed, and the current segmentation model of race, sex, age, and geography will not apply for marketing beauty. The students predicted that by 2030, race will be replaced by cultural values, gender identities will significantly broaden, age will evolve into cross-generational interests and no longer define product needs, and belonging to a community will no longer be determined by geography.
Their recommendations for reaching the new consumer include establishing a cultural exchange, using real life situations to connect with purchasers in ads and collateral, and engaging marketing and sales teams in identifying consumer insights.
Men’s Beauty
“Last year, China claimed rank as the largest men’s skin care market in the world with an incredible 280% growth,” said group leader Simone Bolotin, Director of US Public Relations, Coty Prestige. In comparison, the U.S. men’s skincare market lags way behind and has only grown 7%.
A booming men’s market, beauty retail franchises and a plethora of gender identifications--not to mention skin tones--will define and direct the beauty market in 2030, according to research presented by the 2014 graduates of FIT’s Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing and Management Master of Professional Studies.

The student research comprised three key areas: Accessible Beauty, The New Beauty Consumer and Men’s Beauty.
The students described the U.S. men’s beauty market as being at a tipping point and presented an innovative model symbolized by a masculine theme of gears. The “Ignite” gear is about identifying authentic needs and showing men the consequences of not taking care of the skin. “Steer” refers to leveraging key influencers such as family and peers; “Fuel” utilizes imagery that reflects the changing definition of masculinity, including the tender side; and the “Accelerate” gear recommends focusing on one hero product at a time to build momentum.

The Future in Men's Grooming
According to Euromonitor International, men’s grooming is set to be one of the fastest- growing categories in beauty and personal care. Last year, China claimed rank as the largest men’s skin care market in the world with an incredible 280% growth,” said group leader Simone Bolotin, Director of US Public Relations, Coty Prestige. FIT Grad Students said the U.S. men’s beauty market as being at a tipping point and presented an innovative model symbolized by a masculine theme of gears.

J. Paul Razor Launch with Nordstrm Sells Out on First Day
J. Paul Skin Care for Men’s much anticipated razor launch with Nordstrom on Sunday, July 21 sold out of its collection of travel razors within hours of being made available to the public during the department store’s Anniversary Sale. The new J. Paul product is a patented 2-in-1 shave/travel accessory that combines a high-quality 6-blade disposable razor with its flagship product, Glide Shave Cream. The razor was exclusively offered at Nordstrom on a limited basis but will return to Nordstrom stores in the 4th Quarter in-time for the Holiday season at all Nordstrom locations throughout the United States. The unique razor product, which stores shave cream in its handle, allows for up to 3 to 4 shaves before being discarded. The razor’s 6 blades lets customers still experience an extremely high-quality close shave that parallels that of a Mach or Gillette reusable blade.
J. Paul’s President, Paul Strong, said that he was pleased with the razor’s launch into the billion-dollar marketplace. “J. Paul’s decision to add razors to its suite of skin care and shaving products proved to be a smart decision. Competition in the razor market is extremely tough and fierce but our research shows that as long as you continue to innovate and develop products that the public wants, market acceptance will follow. That is the case here,” Strong said. J. Paul is targeting  business and vacation travelers who are constantly “on the go” and who have a need for wanting to pack as light as possible or want to minimize carry-on items. The razor also meets TSA travel requirements.
The travel razor concept falls in-line with J. Paul’s core value proposition of its products being multi-functional with exceptional quality and reasonable pricing.  The razor retails for $17.99 for a package of 3.
J. Paul has launched into nearly 50 men’s boutiques across the U.S. and recently launched with Nordstrom Department Store. J. Paul is targeting the men’s high-end skin care market with five initial product offerings: pre-shave, shave cream, aftershave, body lotion and body wash. The company has designed its products to be multi-functional and can address several skin care needs at once. J. Paul has built its line of products around its flagship product, Glide Shave Cream. The product was developed for men of all ethnic backgrounds who have very tough coarse beards and who develop frequent razor burn.

Paul Strong, J. Paul’s President, said that J. Paul is targeting everyone from business and vacation travelers to anyone that has a need for packing as light as possible and those individuals that are constantly on-the-go. “Our travel razor is ideal for consumers who want to pack lightly for trips or when they want to minimize carry-on items and, at the same time, still get a great close shave using the best shaving cream on the market today. The razor is also TSA approved.”
The travel razor concept falls in-line with J. Paul’s core value proposition of its products being multi-functional with exceptional quality and reasonable pricing.  The razor will retail for $17.99 for a package of 3 and depending upon consumption, the package can give consumers as many as 12 to 15 shaves. For the Nordstrom Anniversary launch, customers can buy the J. Paul razor set for $12.00 while the sale lasts.

Entrepreneurs Have Sensitive Skin in the Game Houston Chronicle:
Desperation led Paul Looney to substitute hair conditioner for shaving cream while traveling some 10 years ago. But that birthed a new business. Looney, now 44, long had grappled with coarse facial hair. Using the conditioner, he said, he experienced the best shave of his life and an "aha" moment. "It felt so good," Looney said. "I couldn't believe it because I have very sensitive skin and a tough beard, and I've struggled with it my whole life. But there was nothing on the market for men like me."

Heʼs a more savvy, demanding consumer."
