Trend Summary 

Nowadays, it has been almost impossible to scroll through social media without seeing an influencer (KOL) talking about the importance of strengthening skin barrier. Skincare experts and enthusiasts have pivoted their focus from instant-gratification products such as acids and scrubs to the less sexy stratum corneum in view of a holistic skin health.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed consumer’s behavior in their skincare routine. The extra time given by the pandemic allows people to really pay attention to their skin condition and learn from media how to rebuild healthier skin. Furthermore, wearing masks all-day also leads to skin problems, like maskne, dry skin and cutaneous sensitization, and this significantly encourages sales and interests in anti-acne and skin calming products. According to a market research report from Grand View Research, global anti-acne cosmetics market size was increased in 2020 as mask wearing created new needs, and the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.1% from 2021 to 2028. In addition, based on the insights provided by SPATE, google online search volume on skin barrier repair has grown by +92.6% since last year, and the search volume is predicted to keep growing in this year. Consumers now are educating themselves on the skin barrier function and how to course-correct if it gets weakened.

In their search for skin barrier strengthening solutions, consumers are considering products across all formats - toners, serums, lotions, moisturizers, creams and oils; that’s why we can see many brands are launching new products in line with anti-acne and soothing benefits. An ingredient that can effectively and timely restore compromised skin in a short time spend enables brands to stay on top of the trend to offer advanced treatments that consumers would turn to.

Ingredient Focus

CORUM’s Epi-On (INCI: Azelamidopropyl Dimethyl Amine (and) Water (and) Butylene Glycol) is a newly patented active that accelerates skin repair and restores skin health through epigenetics pathway. Through the epigenetic pathway, Epi-On™ is able to accelerate skin recovery speed, strengthen the skin barrier, promote epithelial formation in the weakened and damaged skin and has been clinically proven to soothe the irritated skin after laser treatments within 30 minutes.

Epi-On™ also shows a potent anti-bacterial ability against P. acnes and Malassezia spp., as well as a high efficacy in downregulating 5-alpha reductase and normalizing sebum secretion.
