The Impact of COVID on Suncare
The COVID-19 pandemic had a major impact on all industries, suncare included. During the biggest infection spikes when lockdowns were common, most suncare companies saw dips in sales for their products. However, as restrictions began to loosen, sales quickly rebounded and suncare brands saw large spikes in sales. However, these spikes may be short-lived.
According to NielsenIQ Omnishopper Panel data across in-store and online, the overall beauty category saw price per unit shoot up 17% this past year. This impacted many categories, but it’s important to note was driven by many factors, not necessarily price inflation. Suncare was less impacted with an increase of only +5%, but consumers are growing weary of increased costs across the board.
