Floral extracts not only offer a natural substitute to chemical-based ingredients but also possess multi-functional properties including medicinal, healing, restorative, and antioxidant, thereby capturing significant attention from consumers. In past few years, essential oils and aromatherapy industry has been increasingly gaining prominence in both developed and developing countries, and the result is likely to lead to increased demand for floral extracts. In an attempt to maintain a healthy lifestyle, today’s consumers are turning into products and practices that not only enhance the physical appearance but also help improve health and wellness.

Distillation and solvent extraction have long been extraction methods of choice among the manufacturers. However, in recent times, manufacturers are placing their focus on applying supercritical fluid (CO2) extraction method to obtain essential oils and other skin bioactive extracts from different flower sources. Moreover, superficial fluid extraction method serves as a sustainable alternative to conventional extraction methods and the resulting extracts are free from residual solvent.

Ever-changing consumer trends will continue to impact the growth of floral extract market. For instance, apart from bringing significant changes in F&B industry, the rise of veganism has transformed almost every aspect of the beauty industry. With strong desire for cosmetics to be cruelty-free, many brands are focusing on bringing vegan perfumers and personal care products devoid of animal-based ingredients into the markets, thereby potentially raising the demand for plant-based products such as floral extracts. Further, as cosmetics and personal care industry is taking to a whole new level through ‘personalized’ products, floral extract manufacturers are likely to witness a period of sustained demand.

Demand for absolute extract to pick pace

Natural floral extracts take the lead

Demand for organic floral extracts grows rapidly

How Growth will Unfold

Although the terms such as ‘natural’ and ‘clean’, used interchangeably in a number of cosmetic products, continue to influence purchasing decisions of the consumers, they are not covered under the regulations of governing bodies, such as FDA.  Furthermore, the authorized ban on more than 1300 chemicals from being used in beauty products by the European Union has complemented rapid consumer shift towards ‘free-of-chemicals’ products. Such factors have pushed cosmetic manufacturers to voluntarily cut these chemicals from their products and embrace newer plant-based and chemical-free ingredients such as floral extracts. As the cosmetic industry regulatory legislation that has been languished for years is closer to becoming a law, with the introduction of FDA Cosmetic Safety and Modernization Act and the proposal of Personal Care Products Safety, the demand for natural ingredients such as floral extracts will continue to be on an upward swing.
