The incidence of skin cancer is increasing in Bolivia, and for this reason, since 2015, the government has decreed 22 July the "National day of the fight against skin cancer." In addition, medical associations across the country are joining in and carrying out medical care days and prevention campaigns.
The use of sunscreen in the population has risen in Bolivia, especially in the western part of the country where there is a greater intensity of solar radiation. In the eastern part of the country, temperatures are higher and it is more common for the population to have a tan all over the body, following fashion trends.
New product development over the review period focussed on offering different SPF levels, less sticky, non-greasy and lighter textures, as well as products that can be used on both face and body. The most popular formats in sun care are lotions and gels due to the limited availability of other types.
Beiersdorf Bolivia maintained its leading position in sun care in 2018. The company markets the Nivea Sun brand, which enjoyed widespread distribution and consistent availability throughout the review period.
Alta Estética, in the direct selling channel, offers a wide portfolio of products, which includes an aftersun moisturising lotion and both gels and sprays for sun protection for adults, children and baby-specific products and self-tanning. In 2018, the company continued to promote sun care products through continuous discounts in order to be more competitive.
Yanbal Bolivia continued to promote its brand Total Block SPF50 anti-age by offering constantly reduced prices, similar to Total Block Adult Sun Care SPF100, with these being the products with the highest SPFs in the marketplace. They are expected to perform well in the short term due to their unique selling point and competitive prices.
