FMCG: putting the personal back into personal care

Posted by emma.critchley | 14 January

The FMCG personal care industry is living in an exciting time. The lines between what is human and what is technology are becoming even more blurred as revolutionary advancements take over. However whilst brands are hunting for the smartest data and ground-breaking formula they should also be understanding what influences their personal care customer outside of their brand. 

Jane Henderson, Global President of Beauty and Personal Care Division at Mintel said, “We are living in exciting times with revolutionary advancements in technology, brand partnerships and product development…”

Below are just some of the examples of how we have helped FMCG Personal Care brands forge external partnerships with brands to offer added value products that really matter to their customers.
