Last year the value of cosmetics sold in pharmacies was 2.1 billion euros, up 7.5% compared to 2022; estimates for 2024 foresee a further increase of 7.2 percentage points. In the comparison between 2019 (pre-pandemic) and 2023, the weight of the pharmacy channel on cosmetic consumption decreased slightly (in 2019 the channel represented 17.4% of cosmetic consumption, in 2023 16.7%): this data however, it must not be read as the result of lower channel competitiveness, but as the effect of lower inflation pressure compared to other distribution formulas.

Those for facial care (30%), body care products (14%) and sunscreen products (10%) are in the top 3 of the 2023 consumption basket of cosmetics in pharmacies. Facial care and sunscreen are also the product categories with the most dynamic trends recorded in 2023 compared to the previous year (+10.7% and +10.9% respectively); Also noteworthy is the trend of make-up products sold in pharmacies, which grew by 13%.

The photograph of the sector was taken by the Cosmetics in Pharmacy group of Cosmetica Italia which returns to Cosmofarma Exhibition, from tomorrow to 21 April at BolognaFiere, with the claim “Cura. Inspiration. Evolution” which highlights three key concepts: taking care, which is what healthcare professionals are called to do every day. Inspiration as a spark so that we work around a sketched idea to build a good project. Finally, evolution as a questioning, a driving force for comparison, towards personal and professional growth.

«Hygiene, self-care, well-being, prevention and protection are the daily needs, essential for each individual, to which cosmetics are able to respond. This essential trait of the product, combined with the reliability and experience of the pharmacist, make the pharmacy the third sales channel for cosmetics in our country – comments Luigi Corvi, president of the Cosmetics in Pharmacy group of Cosmetica Italia -. The pharmacy is progressively evolving towards a real hub with immediate access to which the consumer can turn to find answers and advice not only on issues related to their health, but more generally to their well-being. From this perspective, our now consolidated presence at Cosmofarma is extremely important to discuss and dialogue with the professionals and operators of the channel, interpreting future developments and needs together.”
