We don’t have the official stats for this, but if you feel like a new beauty/makeup product gets introduced every day, you’re probably not too wrong. The skincare and cosmetics industry never sleeps, and our trending product is yet another example of that.

Centella Sunscreen — What Does Centella Do for Skin?

Centella sunscreen is your daily sunscreen with an SPF that varies by product. The difference comes from the fact that it contains an extract from Centella Asiatica, which is well-known in the skincare industry for its soothing and calming properties.

Aside from sun protection, a Centella sunscreen can also help you reduce irritation, inflammation, and redness, as well as soothe easily irritated skin.

The product became popular due to SKIN1004 Centella-based products. Skincare and beauty influencers started posting videos (mostly on TikTok) about the product, and their viewers started buying them. As always, other manufacturers showed up, and now you can offer Centella sunscreens from dozens of different brands.

If you want to benefit from the trend but can’t find an affordable sunscreen to resell, check out our reviews of the best product-sourcing tools and services that can help you out.

Seller Focus

For skincare sellers, this is an ideal product to improve their offer and benefit from customers willing to buy from retailers they are familiar with. Retailers that focus on beauty and cosmetics products can also offer sunscreen due to its calming effects.

Other niches that can source sunscreen include drugstores, outdoor goods, and health and wellness retailers.

Skincare Market Stats

When we talked about tallow balms last time, we covered the skincare market as a whole and saw that it’s growing year in and year out. The submarket of skincare dedicated to sun protection goes in the same direction.

According to Statista, the global sun protection market dropped in 2020 and 2021 due to the global pandemic. Apart from those two underperforming years, the value of the market has been on a steady rise. Estimates show that the global revenue of sun protection products will be around $13.5 billion in 2028.
