Amid health concerns, this megatrend also captures consumers drawing comfort from healthy, simple, and natural products. The onus is on producers to align with health agendas and maximize brand transparency in order to capitalize on the Comfort & Uncertainty megatrend.

This is certainly true among working professionals who struggle with time- and stress-related anxieties. The demand for simple positioning is high, including formulation and information.
