How COVID-19 is Impacting Ingredients, Cleanliness and Shelf-life

While the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak is affecting beauty retail, order fulfillment and manufacturing, Mintel predicts the virus will also have an impact on clean beauty ingredients, formulation, packaging and shelf-stability. Prior to COVID-19, natural consumers avoided preservative and artificial ingredients in BPC products.
