Humectants are hygroscopic organic compounds that form hydrogen bonds with water molecules. They can either be derived from natural sources, such as glycerin, honey, aloe vera gel, and lactic acid or synthetically produced. They assist in absorbing moisture from the air and retaining it into the stratum corneum, which is the upper layer of the skin. As they also aid in making the skin appear and feel soft, supple, hydrated, and less flaky and prone to cracking or chaffing, they are widely utilized in the manufacturing of beauty and personal care products.

Humectants Market Trends:
A rise in the consumption of health supplements, bakery products, functional beverages, and confectionery products on account of the growing spending capacities of individuals around the world represents one of the key factors driving the market. Humectants help in enhancing stability, maintaining texture, reducing microbial activity, and increasing the shelf life of products. Apart from this, they assist in moisturization, exfoliation, solvency to dissolve actives and improve the stability of oil in water emulsions. As a result, they are considerably being utilized in the production of soaps, shampoos, and conditioners worldwide. Besides this, the rising adoption of humectants in drug development to regulate the water content of pharmaceutical dosage and ingredient solubility is also propelling the growth of the market. Furthermore, leading market players are developing effective humectants for resin-free pigment concentrates that do not contribute to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and have a lower influence on paste properties, such as color strength and viscosity. These innovations have resulted in the expanding application of humectants in architecture, paints and coatings, and other industries across the globe.
