In 2011, the business world takes for granted that sales of natural health & beauty care (HBC) brands will keep on thriving; this is no longer news. Packaged Facts forecasts that the U.S. consumer market for natural and organic skincare, haircare, and makeup–which during 2005-2010 boomed 61% to $7.7 billion–could top $11.0 billion as of 2016. Already, natural HBC is such a solid performer, that it can be considered a component of the mainstream personal care market: Many of the players have finally learned that their moisturizer, shampoo, or eye shadow must be packaged as slickly as non-natural versions. And "green" consumers are more receptive, too, even to the point of remaining loyal to natural HBC brands in the recession of 2008-2009. But what comes next? In the coming years, the battleground will be complicated by the Big Blur of retail channels; by new digital sell-through media; by reformulations to please mainstream America; and by changing world economics that will start to reverse the generations-old flow of U.S. brands to developing countries. The opportunities get hotter and hotter... But is it time to begin looking for the cracks?

Packaged Facts' newest edition of our best-selling guide to the natural HBC market portrays its molten dynamics. Separate chapters on skincare, haircare, and makeup contain historical and future dollar patterns, together with Packaged Facts' famous in-depth analysis. Extensive demographic data from Packaged Facts' own February 2011 consumer survey are also included. Plus the battle profiles of Better Botanicals, Clorox/Burt's Bees, Estee Lauder/Aveda, Hain Celestial, Weleda, and others are detailed.
