Covered in this report

Although facial and body hair removal remained stable, the size of the shaving and hair removal category has declined for the fourth consecutive year in 2019 and is estimated to decline by a further 3.5% in 2020.

The trend is driven by price-sensitive shopping behaviours as well as reduced frequency of hair removal, behaviours which will be amplified by the Covid-19 outbreak.

The lockdown period will see hair removal routines relax, whilst price sensitivities will be heightened as household finances are squeezed.
