Aging is a fact of life. The perception of age and beauty is changing dramatically, though. Most of today’s consumers are pretty well aware of all the factors that accelerate the processes of skin aging. That is why people start to use anti-aging skincare and to protect their skin from negative influences at increasingly younger age. To keep the skin healthy and in balance at every age is everybody’s goal.
This new mentality challenges the anti-aging skin care market. Modern aging consumers are more interested in multifunctional products to keep skin moisturized and healthy, targeting their individual skin issues, and increasingly skeptical about ‘fluffy’ marketing and claims, which promise miracles.
To create successful skincare products you need actives with proven efficacy, clearly communicated benefits and with a focus on improving overall skin quality and appearance for a smarter way of aging.

Silver Agers in focus
The generation of the Silver Agers is 55 plus today. Not only do they make up a significant proportion of the population in many countries around the world, they are also the target group with the highest disposable income. While the cosmetics industry is discovering menopausal women and getting closer to their needs, the older silver agers over 65 are still often overlooked as a target group. In contrast to Millennials or Generation Z, they are more loyal to a brand and product. The older they are, the more likely they are to buy the same products over and over, regardless of the price. According to Mintel, the share of brand and product loyal consumers aged 75 and over is even 72%. So convincing them and winning them over as a customer is definitely attractive. However, it is not easy.
They know what they want and don’t let themselves be seduced by fluffy marketing stories – especially since these are rarely tailored to them. Instead, they want to know what works and why and, in addition to their brand loyalty, are very result-oriented.
They suffer particularly from the many contact restrictions during the pandemic and feel lonely. In addition to the mental aspect, health plays an essential role for this age group. Older adults recognize how their physical health can influence how they look. As a result, older adults seek products that offer both appearance and health-related benefits, supporting their entire well-being.
To create successful skincare products for them, you need actives with proven efficacy, clearly communicated benefits and with a focus on improving overall skin quality, such as our ProRenew Complex CLR™ or MPC™ – Milk Peptide Complex.
