Increasing Per Capita Expenditure on Cosmetic Products

There has been an increasing emphasis on looking polished and well put together among residents in the United Arab Emirates, which has resulted in increasing per capita expenditure on cosmetic products. As consumers are spending considerably more, there is substantial demand for different cosmetics, such as organic and halal. The organic and halal beauty segments grew significantly in the past couple of years. Earlier, there was not much of a distinction between the halal beauty and organic skincare segments, but many international brands have now researched the needs of consumers and have launched product lines that seek to cater to the demand in both segments. Consumers in the United Arab Emirates are strongly inclining toward French beauty products, which are known for their high quality. French beauty and skincare brands are highly trusted in the industry and a growth in their demand is seen among consumers in the country.
