New Ideoclick Survey Reveals Around Three-Quarters of Consumers Shopped Online for Beauty, Health and Personal Care Products in 2021

A new consumer survey from Ideoclick, Inc., the provider of the industry's leading e-commerce optimization platform, reveals the top e-commerce trends impacting purchases of beauty, health and personal care products. Findings indicate that 67% of beauty consumers and 80% of health and personal care consumers shopped online for these products in the past year.

The research also found that over half of consumers (56%) plan on spending more on beauty in preparation for upcoming holiday gatherings. Additionally, almost half of consumers (40%) working fully in-person expect to shop for beauty products more frequently over the next three months due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Consumers are becoming more comfortable shopping online for items traditionally purchased in-store, such as makeup, medicines, and hair care," said Ben Winters, Chief Operating Officer, Ideoclick. "However, with increased opportunities offered by e-commerce comes increased competition from other brands. Beauty, health and personal care brands need to know who their true competitors are and understand how consumers search for products online as opposed to in-store. For example, Amazon is search-based, meaning brands must focus on keywords relevant to their target audience to make products stand out."

As online shopping increased throughout the pandemic, so did the attempts to counterfeit products. According to Amazon's inaugural Brand Protection Report, the company detected and seized more than 2 million counterfeit products in 2020. As counterfeiting reaches an all-time high, Ideoclick's survey found that over half of consumers are concerned about lookalike/counterfeit beauty, health and personal care products when shopping online. As a result, nearly half of consumers turn to and trust online reviews of these products:

Online Activities Positively Affect Purchases of Beauty, Health and Personal Care Products

The survey also identified that social advertising is positively influencing purchasing habits for these products, and consumers are seeking advice primarily from online reviews, influencers, and product pages. Still, adoption of social commerce is lagging:
