Women intimate care products are the personal care products used by women to keep their intimate areas clean. The intimate care products range from wipes and washes, oils, gels, moisturizers and creams, and many others which are either disposable or reusable.
The global women intimate care products market is anticipated to grow at a considerable pace. Growing awareness among women about health and hygiene is anticipated to drive the sales of intimate care products. Many women living in developing and underdeveloped countries do not have access to basic intimate care products. However, government initiatives as well as local NGO’s are helping in educating and spreading awareness among women about feminine hygiene products. Health and hygiene campaigns are also conducted in schools, workplaces, and universities worldwide to improve awareness about intimate wash products. Changing lifestyle among women and fast paced routines leave little time to meet hygiene needs. Thus, it becomes important to use different products to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Additionally, increase in marketing programs for intimate care products has helped in enhancing the geographical presence of these products. With increase in disposable income, online platforms such as Amazon, Flipkart etc. have helped in bringing intimate care products to tire II and tire III cities. Moreover, purchasing these products via online channels is cheaper compared to the offline mode, thus driving the growth of intimate care products considerably.
However, in many developing and underdeveloped regions, poor hygiene, lack of proper facilities, and unaffordability of intimate care products might prove to be a restraint for the growth of the women intimate care products market. Introduction of highly innovative and high quality products which are affordable enough to be accessible by all sections of society is expected to provide an opportunity for the women intimate care products market.
One of the key trends in the women intimate care products market is increasing demand for organic intimate products. Women are preferring intimate care products that are free from harmful chemicals, and are naturally processed. Demand for Ayurvedic intimate care products such as lotions, face wash, oils, and lubricants is gradually increasing. Increase in consumer perception about health and safety issues has led to increasing demand for organic products. Increase in disposable income globally is making women in tire II and tire III cities more financially stable, thus enabling them to have more access to intimate care products.
