Trends According To Product Category
In general, Personal Care is the category where the most – and the most unique – coating effects are used.
In the Skin Care segment, various different types of coatings are used to communicate the high efficacy / premium quality of the product and / or the brand image.
For Natural Cosmetics, less metallic effects and less effects with an artificial look & feel are used. Preferred are more basic matt / gloss effects, sometimes used on uncoated substrates.
In Oral Care, high gloss, metallic or even holographic coating effects are used to communicate a high product efficacy, often in combination with other metallic or holographic effects.
Fragrances are luxury products, calling for exceptional and strong effects that need to be chosen carefully to reflect the brand image.
