North America/Europe – This week’s microtrend profiles the beauty brands connecting cosmetics and spirituality.

  • Part of a bigger trend where consumers increasingly see beauty as a holistic experience
  • Rituals associated with Asian beauty regimes are being rebranded for Western consumers

Brands such as Mauli Rituals, The Broad Place and PurEarth are blending skincare and wellness to offer minimalist approaches that use ancient ingredients, Ayurvedic science and spiritual rituals.
