Men's Grooming: Opportunities for Business Growth
While the men's grooming industry remains a niche market, men are now a multibillion-dollar growth opportunity for the personal care industry. A new generation of image-conscious male consumers focused on personal wellness is driving that growth as they aim to improve their appearance. With attitudes towards traditional male grooming shifting, men are now diversifying into skincare regimens using products such as moisturizers, face scrubs, and anti-aging creams to improve their physical appearance.
Beard care seems to be defining the younger generation and has become a growing segment leading to a proliferation of products. New emerging trends such as lumbersexual and lumbster, have highlighted the evolution of beard styles in the 21stcentury. From full beards to partials as a goatee, male consumers can now choose multi-tasking beard oils, beard balm leave-in conditioners, and much more. Barbershops continue to offer a wide selection of men’s grooming products and now store-based retailers including drugstores and mass retailers, have taken notice and are designating specific men shopping areas to address this new category and where men can try products.
Ballistic men’s personal care brand has responded to the men's skincare market potential by launching a premium brand of targeted products for the young, urban male. With a highly saturated yellow as their signature brand color, they designed a bold, one-of-a-kind label to make an impactful first impression and stand out on any retail shelf!
The UniNet iColor® 700 LED Toner-Based Digital Label Press was the perfect partner for printing Ballistic high-quality, unique labels. The Ballistic brand wanted a refined, durable, and water-resistant label to capture the premium quality of their products and withstand environmental conditions. The photographic collage image was printed on UniNet certified matte white PET stock using rich black to create a dramatic contrast to the yellow intensity and brilliance. For the final step, the Ballistic labels were finished using the UniNet iColor® LF700+ Digital Label Die-Cutter and finishing solution.
