Personal care ingredients refer to the various raw materials used in the production of a number of personal care products. While everyone is attuned to using personal care products, one may be oblivious to the fact that the functionality of these products, such as fairness and anti-wrinkle, anti-ageing, and anti-bacterial properties, are a result of the specialty chemicals used in them. These specialty chemical ingredients form the core of any personal care product and are responsible for the product’s physical as well as functional properties. Inactive ingredients such as polymers, colorants, preservatives, and surfactants grant the products their physical attributes while active ingredients such as exfoliators, UV agents, anti-ageing materials, and conditioning agents are responsible for their functional properties.

Asia Pacific Leads Global Personal Care Ingredients Market
The rising demand for personal care products from the vast pool of increasingly affluent consumers in Asia Pacific, along with the equally strong demand for anti-aging products from the rising population of old people in the region, is the major factor that will lead to an increased demand for personal care ingredients in Asia Pacific. The change in demand dynamics of the personal care industry in the region is largely spurred by rising disposable incomes and improving economic conditions. In 2014, the region accounted for nearly 30% of the global personal care ingredients market.
The stringent rules and regulations regarding the composition of personal care ingredients in North America and Europe, along with the sluggish economic development prospects currently hovering over many European economies, are expected to restrain the market for personal care ingredients in these regions to a certain extent.
