Executive Summary

Jun 2019
PROSPECTS
Consumers still do not have much interest in depilatories

No significant movement was seen in depilatories in 2018. Consumers in South Korea still do not use depilatories in daily life nor have any interest in specific brands.

Alternatives constrain growth potential of depilatories

Laser hair removal is one of the popular treatments that consumers in South Korea undergo at dermatologists and skin clinics. Clinics offer low prices because laser treatment is regarded as a “bait” promotion, which can attract first-time visiting patients.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Small brands distributed by drugstores start to show presence in hair removers/ bleaches

Oxy Reckitt Benckiser Ltd’s Veet managed to remain the leading brand in hair removers/bleaches. Drugstores are expanding brand variety and introducing more products to consumers.

Due to lower consumer demand, many brands lack promotion in depilatories

Male-targeted depilatories often hold aggressive promotions in retail stores. However, for women’s razors and blades as well as hair removers/bleaches which are mainly targeted at women, brands and retailers do not place any priority on these products in terms of promotions.
