Beauty Stocks Benefit from Surge in Spending (HBRM, NBY, NOVN, RGS, COTY)

August 10 05:04 2022

During the pandemic, skincare companies saw a small downtick in growth which can be attributed to fewer people going outside, and thereby a decreased emphasis on exterior beauty.  After all, the photo filters on phones do a great job of removing blemishes.  However, with fewer masks and more face-to-face contact consumers are pouring money back into beauty.

The overall beauty market was up to $511B in 2021 from $483B in 2020 — and with an annual compounded growth rate of 4.75% worldwide — it’s predicted to exceed $716B by 2025. And $784.6B by 2027.

  • Cosmetics is projected to grow from $90b to $118b (+32%)
  • Skincare is projected to grow from $136b to $169b (+24.3%)
  • Personal care is projected to grow from $226b to $268b (+18.7%)
  • Fragrances is projected to grow from $53b to $60b (+13.7%)



Investors are now ready to see how this growth has manifested in securities over the last quarter. 

One sub-industry in skincare with a busy few weeks of reporting ahead is acne treatment.  The global acne treatment market is projected to grow from $9.36 billion in 2022 to $12.97 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.8% in forecast period (Forbes Business Insights).  According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the prevalence of acne affected 9.4% of the global population in 2021.

Herborium Group, Inc. (OTCMKTS: HBRM) CEO Dr. Agnes Olszewski noted in a recent interview ahead of her company’s 3rd quarter financials, “We see an uptick in 3rd quarter sales generally, and with the launch of our new platform this could be accelerated.”   The company’s revenues have increased steadily over the past 4 years.  This quarter, HBRM plans to launch its AI-powered diagnosis platform for e-commerce.  Herborium offers Botanical Therapeutic ® remedies for acne the company tests its natural formulations with the same standards found in the pharmaceutical industry creating higher efficacy, proven safety, and consumer satisfaction.

HBRM’s AI solution for e-commerce is particularly intriguing considering the online share of the skincare market is predicted to surge to 48% in the United States by 2023.  Learn more about HBRM here:
