Rationale for the deal
According to the latest market research from Lucintel, rising consumer incomes and changing lifestyles are driving the global beauty care products industry, which is forecasted to reach around $265 billion and the personal care industry around $630 billion by 2017. Lucintel further highlights skincare as the largest segment with huge growth potential by 2017, where the second segment, hair care is reported as following closely behind.
The driver to this reality is simply because society is presently in a bubble where they like to look good, smell good and feel good and one don’t anticipate that changing soon.
Today’s society by its sophisticated nature and its environment, is a very busy and pampering society. They are willing to spend lots of money for items that are innovative, simple and can improve their well-being and uplift their spirit.
The owner of the business has been researching the industry for about three (3) years before investing in the manufacturing of personal care and therapeutic products. The company employed qualified chemists to help with the formulation of over 100 possible products.
Research shown that there is a huge market for the natural earthy, organic healthy personal care and therapeutic products not only in the USA & Canada but worldwide. The company plan on selling some of its products on Amazon.com so have enlisted support to investigate such a possibility.
