Tropic Skincare and The Ordinary top Google searches as people hunt for sustainable and organic beauty

22nd June 2020 | Author: Victoria Woollaston-Webber

Over the past 12 months, Google search data shows a surge in people looking for natural deodorants, organic skincare and vegan beauty ranges as the popularity of sustainable and clean beauty continues to rise. 

Between April 2019 and April 2020, the number of combined searches relating to natural deodorant topped more than 6.7 million. 

Searches for the term “natural deodorant” specifically reached 640,000 while the best natural deodorant got 273,700 searches globally since April 2019. 

Aluminium-free deodorant also scored highly, with 317,900 searches over the past year. We at mamabella have seen first-hand the popularity of such terms from when we published a piece about Wild natural deodorant in April.

These figures come from data provider SEMrush which has been exploring changing attitudes towards skincare and deodorant products in recent months. 

In the UK, the top organic deodorant brand by search volume was Native Deodorant, which had 104,500 searches over the past 12 months. This was three times more than its closest competitor, Salt Of The Earth Deodorant with 29,900 searches during the same timeframe. 

There has also been a rise in related questions from “How to make natural deodorant?,” “What is natural deodorant?,” and “Does natural deodorant work?” 

When it comes to global skincare, the most popular brand is Tropic Skincare – a particular favourite at mamabella towers –  with a total of 575,900 searches globally.

“The growing awareness of organic and natural skincare ranges and deodorant is an encouraging indication of the public’s willingness to seek out alternative products which are better for the planet,” said Olga Andrienko, Head of Global Marketing at SEMrush.

“This aligns with the global attitude change towards environmentalism, as indicated by the rise in people adopting vegetarian and vegan diets, dramatically reducing their plastic consumption and cutting their carbon footprint.

“The environmental impact of beauty products is only going to become an even greater concern for the public and is one brands are already acutely aware of. It’s an area we anticipate huge growth in over the coming months and years.”
