Summary 1 Research Sources
As an indicator of the significance of size in the cosmetics and toiletries industry, technological advancements and research and development has led to an increasing number of “mass brand” products in the colour cosmetics and skin care sectors to offer functional attributes similar to those of their premium counterparts. Max Factor, for example, with its Aquary Pearl range of make-up, uses a similar type of light-reflecting pigments used by the premium brands to produce a finish that is transparent and luminous. This is due to the lower barriers to technology, which has allowed mass brands to incorporate similar ingredients used in premium brands into its products. Other mass brands that have benefited from this trend, either due to lower barriers to technology or their alignment with the major consumer groups, such as Procter & Gamble, Unilever and Beiersdorf, include Olay, Nivea and Neutrogena.
Premium skin care brands are emphasising experiential aspect of product
In an increasingly competitive market and as a response to flagging consumer loyalty, premium skin care brands and even specialist retailers are emphasising the experiential aspects of their product in the local market. They are doing this through the setting up of brand-specific beauty salons and spas, which not only engage in a highly involved product sales process, but also provide make-up and skin care services. Since 2004, major players, such as Kose, L’Oréal, H2O and cult brand Aesop, have set up what are known as “concept stores” around the city.
For example, L’Oréal Hong Kong aims to increase its visibility through the establishment of more stores catering to separately distinct customer segments. In 2005, L’Oréal Hong Kong opened its first Vichy concept store in Causeway Bay, targeted specifically at consumers with mild skin problems, with plans for more in the coming years within its brand portfolio. In addition to an improved level of service, concept stores and beauty boutiques employ state-of-the-art technology and personalised consultation to engage in greater consumer education.
