The Global Shaving Foam Market size is expected to reach $569.3 Million by 2025, rising at a market growth of 4.6% CAGR during the forecast period. Customers from developing economies of China and India are witnessing an increase in their spending power, which is another prominent factor that can dramatically influence the demand and purchase of personal care products like shaving foam. Brands like Nivea and Gillette have actively penetrated the Asia Pacific market and are expected to drive the shaving foam market. Furthermore, the demand for organic shaving products is on the rise majorly due to the low and rare side effects. Manufacturers focus on developing and innovating to manufacture skin and environment-friendly shaving foam products.
Shaving foam is created with a large amount of air that gives it a fluffy texture with a nice lather. Shaving cream or shaving foam is a foamy cosmetic cream that is applied to body hair, mostly facial hair, during the shaving process. Shaving foam helps to lubricate the cutting process, swell keratin, and desensitize the skin. The foam consists of an emulsion of soaps or surfactants, oils, and water. The basic shaving formulations are packed under pressure with a propellant (like iso-butane), to give the foamy and extra fluffy texture to the shaving foam. When a person presses the button on top of the bottle, that button releases a pressure, which expands the propellant and rushes up the formulation to the top. This is how foam comes out of the bottle. The iso-butane also provides extra bubbles to the formula that gives excessive fluffiness.
Based on Type, the market is segmented into Organic Shaving Foam and Conventional Shaving Foam. Based on Distribution Channel, the market is segmented into Offline and Online.
