Disrupt or Innovate

Fast Fashion created the template to meet rapidly changing consumer demands and trends, with major retail disruptors like H&M and Zara leading the way. When a disruptive market challenges your accepted relationships, the momentum of change requires you to reset and focus on your future direction or risk meeting the consumer demands for fast beauty.

“The concept is about more than speed — it marries fast beauty with masstige, and aims to quickly bring quality, affordable, on-trend products to market. ……. E.l.f. Cosmetics launched with a similar thesis in 2004 — and there are also ColourPop and Winky Lux, both of which excel in speed to market.”[ ]

A Challenge to the Status Quo

The news is that the shift to fast beauty challenges organisations to shift their focus from internal to external product development. Working closely with manufacturers with the specific skill sets to execute both rapid product development and manufacturing is vital to ensure product quality isn’t compromised.

The fast beauty process has taken off with ‘aware and dynamic’ manufacturer’s having advanced development projects in play awaiting for them to be commercialized by brands who have the volume to take it to market. It can be often the case of a brand seeking out a concept and saying ” We’ll take that.” Finally fast beauty disruptors do not necessarily have to be innovators. “Disruptors are innovators, but not all innovators are disruptors.” []

According to Ecovia Intelligence, in 2019 there will be an acceleration in natural and organic cosmetic launches globally, and in particular the Asia-Pacific region. Ethical, clean, organic and sustainable brands will lead the way.

However as consumer become more savvy, especially millennials who “are already some of the most avid buyers of natural & organic products; they will wield greater influence as their spending power continues to rise” []. This will necessitate the need to show your credentials to become more relevant to your markets. Backing up claims in your product development should ensure you are ahead of the competition, however ingredient claims without performance, stability and evidence could ring a hollow message.
