Gender Neutralize Grooming and Makeup
The most ignored community in the past by the makeup industry is the male community. Since the rising of the cosmetic industry, its focus is completely for developing the product for the female gender. Yet the progress is very much but there is a vacuum for the industry which started to fill at the end of 19th century.
Before the 19thcentury it is to be believed that all the cosmetic and grooming essentials are only for the women. Due to this negligence the skin of males suffers a lot and it develops a vacuum for the industry which has to be filled up. The one of the foremost brand which understands this space and started developing the product is Garneir. After that the booming of the product for males started and now there are thousands of the products and brands there in the market for men’s grooming and makeup and a new segment rises i.e. Gender Neutralize Grooming and Makeup. Grooming and skin care started growing rapidly the main segments for this are exfoliants, anti-ageing cream, SPF product, moisturizers etc.
Why we need a different product for the men’s makeup and grooming?
Why we need a different product line or a specialized product line for the men. The answers lies in the statement that all of the persons have different skin type. Now a further question is that there are plenty of product in the market to satisfy this demand then why a different product. The reason is that the toughness of the skin is completely different from the women’s skin. The cream or any other substance used for base for makeup or as a moisturizer are developed by considering the women skin which is somehow hold a lower toughness level as compared to men. So, the complete different range is required by the customer to comply with the toughness of the skin.
