Watsons Personal Care Stores based in China introduced Watsons Collagen Mineral BB Cream that contains minerals and fish collagen. This cream can be used as skin softener, moisturizer as well as brightener. The maximum consumers of skin care products are females, however, the increasing number of metrosexual males who are now embracing these products has increased over the years, as a result of the rise in need to protect and maintain skin health, and large-scale advertisements promoting products specially designed for male skin type. According to the Simmons National Consumer Survey (NHCS) based on the U.S. Census data in 2016, around 1.35 million Americans spent over $500 on skin care products. This amount is expected to increase during the forecast period.
