Ageless beauty: How to speak to the 50+ crowd

18.02.2014 Ageless : Imogen Matthews : Older Female Beauty

London – At our Polarity Paradox Preview Network Evening, held at The Future Laboratory HQ last week, LS:N Global reporter Rowland Manthorpe spoke to Imogen Matthews about the Flat Age Society and the untapped potential of the older female beauty market.

Matthews, a beauty editor, consultant and publisher of the 2012 report, Older Women: The Forgotten Demographic, explained why this group has been ignored and how to reach 50-plus female beauty buyers. ‘There is a huge scepticism among these older consumers,’ said Matthews. ‘The ads don’t speak to them. It is all aimed at younger consumers. There has to be some acknowledgement that when older women shop, they have different concerns.’
