Humectant is a substance, which are produced using natural and synthetic sources for absorbing moisture from the air into the skin. Most of the skin care product manufacturers prefer using synthetic humectants due to their low cost as compared to natural ones.

Natural humectants help attract water to the surface of the skin, and also deliver hydration and nutrients to the deeper layers of the skin. Thus, these help the skin to keep itself hydrated for a certain period.

The demand for humectant has increased in the recent years, owing to rise in use of humectant for extending product shelf life, retaining moisture, and increasing product's effectiveness. Moreover, increase in demand from food & beverages application along with rise in demand from cosmetics & change in lifestyle drives the global humectants market. Moreover, technological changes in the food & cosmetic industry along with rise in population fuels the market growth. A few of the humectants are derivatives of petroleum products; thus, volatility in crude oil prices could hamper the growth of the global market.
