Emollients is the largest ingredient type of personal care ingredients market.

The emollients segment accounted for the largest share of the global personal care ingredients market in terms of value in 2020. Emollients are fatty substances that provide lubricating action and make the skin feel softer. Emollients are widely used in skin care products ranging from face creams to skin cleansers and scrubs; and in hair care products such as shampoos and conditioners. The market for conditioning polymers is quite small compared to surfactants and emollients in terms of volume. However, due to their higher prices, there is not much difference in the market sizes of emollients, surfactants, and conditioning polymers in terms of value.
