Home Peel
Medical-grade chemical peels are being adapted to treatments safe for home use
Trend - Skincare brands are creating over-the-counter chemical peels for private home treatment. These are rinse-free, prescriptionless treatments that focus on convenience and accessibility. Body peels have been shown to be more effective at reducing blemishes and acne than traditional serums.

Insight - One of the impacts of the prevalence of social media in modern lifestyles is the desire for consumers to maximize their appearance, from fashion to skin health. These beauty-conscious consumers prioritize convenience when seeking out cosmetics and skincare treatments, leading to a clear preference for OTC solutions over prescription-based alternatives. Skincare brands that offer at-home products with results equal-to medical-grade solutions can effectively draw the attention of these consumers.
Workshop Question - How could your brand adapt its products or services with convenience and accessibility in mind?
