Follow us on LinkedIn – Growth in the global shaving lotions and creams market is currently riding on product innovations, especially in the developed countries. Shaving gels, creams and foams in new fragrances and with beneficial ingredients like Vitamin E and Aloe Vera are being introduced in the market on a frequent basis. Organic and natural ingredients are becoming increasingly popular in shaving preparations. Established companies are employing natural ingredients to position the products as safer and chemical free. The return of the traditional wet shaving technique, after being gradually encroached by the increase in popularity of electric shavers, also bodes well for the market.
