Following up on Malouf Pharmacy’s Key Skincare Insights from Cosmoprof Asia, Angela lets us in on the biggest beauty trends to come out of Cosmoprof Asia.
The fair was definitely geared more towards skincare, however there were some very innovative brands coming out of the USA, Japan and Korea. The Japanese and Korean brands have very cute packaging, geared to a younger customer and the beauty stores were jam packed with these very cute beauty products.
01. UNUSUAL PACKAGING
I saw brow products that looked like magic markers, colour correctors that looked like whipped cream – makeup that was fun and young.
Very cool new brands are coming out of the USA which are high quality, but really well priced. Malouf Pharmacies is very interested in two brands to be revealed once the deal is done.
There were literally thousands of beauty brushes on offer of all different colours and shapes. Keep a look out for these in the near future as we investigate this further. Some of the brushes we saw were mind blowing.
04. BEAUTY BLENDERS
Once again, there were literally thousands of different types of beauty blenders. This is a trend that simply won’t go away.
05. BEAUTY KITS & PALETTES
Palettes are having a moment right now, but Australian consumers only see a 10th of what is available internationally. There are so many different options.
06. HENNA BROWS
This was probably the most amazing product I saw. Tattooing brows with Henna lasts three weeks and is good for those customers who don’t want to commit to permanent feather touch brows.
Lashes are BIG news, with the latest trend being paper lashes in crazy designs. Lash and brow growth serums were also popular.
08. HAIR CARE
Very geared towards the balance between salon and high end pharmacy. Hair Masks were also another big trend.

Most eye creams either promise instant effects or long terms results; with little being able to produce both...until now.
Whether you have a high roller budget, or a shoe string discretionary spend would you ever purchase a fragrance you just don’t like…and then wear it? A fragrance is your sensory signature, it’s your lasting sensory impression you leave with the one you encounter. A woman or man’s relationship with their fragrance is an intimate bond. The scent of a fragrance allows you to be creative and individual, to create an alter ego or choose a particular persona - you choose who you would like to be that day.
Asia remains the dominant player in global skincare sales, with consumers across the continent “obsessed with” seeking to achieve flawless skin that is clear, luminous and seemingly transparent. To help cosmetic manufacturers tap into this growing trend for the appearance of glass-like, cloudless skin, in-cosmetics Asia (trade show) has announced hydration and haircare as two of these major focuses of its Spotlight On areas this year.
