Key Highlights
The signs of aging, such as wrinkles, loss of skin tone and luminosity, become more prevalent with age, especially among over 50s women. Despite a plethora of skincare and make-up products intended to address these issues, older consumers do not find claims such as anti-aging to be at all effective.

Consumer trust in products is fundamental to the success of a brand, but it does not follow that stronger claims equate to higher sales. People are as likely to put their trust in what their friend says, or may choose a product for what it leaves out (e.g. chemicals) as puts in.

Consumers in the BRIC markets are particularly enthusiastic about the idea of DNA-matched cosmetics. While only 5-6% of consumers in Germany and France find this concept to be appealing, consumers in Russia, China and Brazil are very open to the approach (25%, 29% and 37% said they found it appealing, respectively).
