European Union’s Decision to Curtail Homosalate Concentration in Facial Products to 0.5% to Comprehensively Harm Market Expansion

Demand for Homosalate in the past has been triggered by increasing usage in the production of sunscreen products across geographies as per permissible limits, be it 10% in the European Union or 15% in the U.S.

However, there have been regulatory changes at the global level, wherein, SCCS (Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety) of the European Union concluded that Homosalate usage in concentrations above 0.5% in consumer products could not be considered safe. This resulted in SCCS adopting to drastically reduce the permissible limit from 10% in European countries to a mere 0.5%.

This would not only negatively hamper the overall sales of the product in the European market in the short term, which is one of the largest demand generators, but also act as a restraint to market growth in adjoining regions, which are bound to adopt such product level-restrictions on a broader scale, and, in turn, promote R&D into alternate product development.

Winning Strategy

As the homosalate market is entirely dependent on sunscreen and facial cream manufacturers for consistent revenue generation, companies should invest in forming collaborations with cosmetic manufacturers. They should work towards developing and pioneering discoveries in newer cosmetic formulations, which will not only limit the usage of homosalate to 0.5% in facial creams but also keep the functional characteristics intact, ensuring futuristic opportunities in the market.

To keep up with the ever-changing beauty business requirements, next-generation cosmetic formulations must be manufactured, and numerous studies are already ongoing for this purpose. European homosalate makers are currently in the advanced stages of producing newer cosmetic formulas, and Asian firms must decide whether to collaborate with them, try to catch up, or use inorganic growth tactics such as acquisitions and mergers to jump to the next technical cycle.
