Industry Insights

The global mineral cosmetics market size was accounted for USD 2.9 billion, in 2018. Consumers prefer natural and herbal beauty care products which is boosting product demand across the global market. Manufacturers are incorporating minerals such as iron oxide, zinc oxide, mica powder, essential organic oils, and titanium dioxide in the products.
