Into A Growing List of Aerosol & Liquid Personal Care Products
The availability of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil products is on the rise. According to a recent report by leading cannabis market intelligence and consumer research group BDS Analytics and Arcview Market Research, the collective market for CBD sales is expected to exceed $20 billion in the United States by 2024. This anticipated market growth has consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies feverishly working to add CBD oils into a wide variety of personal care products, beauty products and beyond.
WHAT IS THE CBD OIL BUZZ ABOUT?
CBD is one of over 80 compounds called cannabinoids that are found in the Cannabis sativa L. plant. Unlike other components found in cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive, which means that CBD does not change a person’s state of mind. Some research suggests, however, that CBD produces significant changes in the body – delivering health and wellness benefits.
Word of mouth combined with Congress’ passage of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (the 2018 Farm Bill) have sparked a growing demand for FDA-regulated consumer products derived from cannabis and its components across a wide range of industries including:
- personal care
- health and wellness
- food and beverage
- pet care
- skin care
WHY BEAUTY AND PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS? WHY NOW?
The revenue generated from sales of CBD skin care products alone is estimated to be valued at more than $645 million in 2019 according to Future Market Insights’ “CBD Skin Care Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2019-2027” Report.
Topical CBD oils offer the promise of delivering hydrating, anti-aging and inflammation reduction, along with vitamins A, D and E, and essential fatty acids, so they are being incorporated into the following product categories:
- deodorants (spray or roll-on)
- shaving creams
- shower foams
- body and massage oils
- body sprays
- hair care products
LIQUID AND AEROSOL CBD CONTRACT MANUFACTURING CONSIDERATIONS AND BEST PRACTICES
As CBD product sales make their way from hemp farms into retail stores, many CPG companies are looking to capitalize on consumer demand. Prior to producing a new liquid or aerosol product infused with CBD oil, CPG companies must consider a number of variables.
Since the market is still in its infancy, proper documentation can often be difficult to obtain, so it’s important to partner with a contract manufacturer with specialized expertise producing product formulations for emerging markets. Such a manufacturing partner will have established relationships with suppliers to ensure that you are sourcing high-quality CBD oil, and can provide guidance on product development and formulation.
