Having flawless-looking skin is not only a result of high-performing facial makeup that delivers exceptional coverage; it also really starts with clear, healthy skin. That’s why it comes as no surprise that sales of facial cleansers and acne treatments are still on the rise.

According to data from SymphonyIRI Group, sales of facial cleansers rose about 4%, as sales of acne treatments rose 3.4% at food, drug and mass (excluding Walmart) during the 12 weeks ended Nov. 27.

When buying bath and shower products, shoppers tend to choose products based mainly on scent and moisturization, according to a Mintel survey. Furthermore, men are increasingly opting for body wash in lieu of bar soap.

According to SymphonyIRI Group data, sales of body wash rose about 7% at food, drug and mass (excluding Walmart) for the 52 weeks ended Nov. 27. Taking the top spot, according to the data: Axe body wash for men.

According to Mintel, men between 18 and 34 years of age reported the highest usage of body wash at 58%, compared with 50% of those ages 35 to 54 years and 42% of those who are 55 years and older.

With the growing trend of body wash among both men and women, it isn’t surprising that sales of scrubbers and massagers also are on the rise, and that growth is expected to continue, climbing by 63% through 2015, according to Mintel.

The kids are going to love this nail polish so much. I see this selling off the shelves. If you have it in walmart it should sell so good.

Is this why Piggy Paint added the chemical preservative Neolone 950 (aka Methylisothiazolinone) into their formula last year - to offer a longer shelf life for Wal-Mart customers and corporate companies? Non-toxic indeed....
