Strict regulations by South Korea’s Ministry of Food and Drug Safety regarding utilization of synthetic based cosmetic preservatives. Preservatives including methylisothiazolinone, dimethyloxazolidine, p-chloro-m-cresol and chlorophene are restricted to allowable levels. Thus, these factors may hinder the overall Asia Pacific cosmetic preservatives market growth.

Coronavirus spread has led to shutdown of offices and marketplaces. Widespread store closures and no e commerce deliveries of cosmetic products have led to declining sales. Majority of the global population staying at home has led to reduced cosmetics utilization which will hinder personal care industry, thereby reducing preservatives demand. However, the manufacturers are utilizing their facilities to produce hand sanitizers and cleaning agents which may support the Asia Pacific cosmetic preservatives market growth.
Increasing demand for high quality cleansers, make up removers, and cleaning serums is likely to boost product demand. Levulinic acid is widely used in manufacturing foaming and non-foaming cleansers owing to its astringent and skin tightening properties. It is also used as a natural preservative as it aids in protecting cosmetic solutions from fungal and bacterial contaminations. Furthermore, rapid shift towards natural ingredients and increasing awareness on additives in cosmetic solutions is likely to boost the Asia Pacific cosmetic preservatives market demand.
For instance, In June 2016, L’Oreal launched its latest hair care products range named Garnier Ultra Blends for the Indian market. This product range includes shampoo, conditioners and oil & cream which are made from natural ingredients. This will have a positive impact on the APAC cosmetic preservatives market revenue.
K-Beauty industry is the world’s eighth largest market. Rising cosmeceuticals demand owing to therapeutic benefits imparted by presence of traditional Korean herbs and extracts. These products offers moisturization, skin imperfections treatment, sun protection and reducing inflammation.
Industry players are rapidly investing in South Korean market in an attempt to gain brand recognition & broaden consumer base. For instance, In July 2019, Parfums Givenchy owned by LVMH opened its first beauty store at the Hyundai department store in Seoul, South Korea. In August 2019, Kolmask Korea acquired Jayjun Cosmetics plants in Incheon to boost face masks production. Therefore, these aforementioned factors should boost the APAC cosmetic preservatives market.
