Mintel's latest report on the future of oral care

Oral care's alignment with the beauty category will continue. There will be a focus on whitening to make people appear younger, and it will take its cue to ride the 'clean' wave.

Efforts are also needed to make oral care formats fit better into daily life and improve routines.

Planning ahead: next 5 years

Oral care devices and apps have been mainstreaming for a few years and the capabilities will extend further. Health and wellbeing is strongly influencing oral health as people look to monitor and combat oral health concerns, and consumers wish to care for their overall wellbeing.
