In the past few years, consumer needs and purchases have gradually been shifting for a demand in holistic wellness, where people are now driven to invest in products that provide them with unique and positive experiences for their health and wellness like never before.
Wellness has made its way across various sectors and now most notably the beauty industry. Brands like L’Occitane En Provence are now integrating elements of wellness into their product offerings to satisfy all their health-conscious customers. As affluent consumers spend more time researching and reviewing beauty routines brought to them by the active online community, beauty standards are ramping up, and L’Occitane is redefining wellness and beauty to evolving customer expectations.
But, what does wellness necessarily mean at this point? It is a view of life that celebrates the best version of yourself mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally. Meditation, organic and natural beauty products, fitness, food, innovations in medical data, and health tracking technology are now becoming dominant lifestyle purchases that help you engage with your health in a unique way all so that you can make conscious choices that contribute to your quality of life in order to achieve a satisfiable and holistic wellness.
A modern-day approach to wellness
With wide access to information, consumer awareness has heightened to viewing health and wellness as more than just a lifestyle choice but a natural and positive state of being. In other words, wellness is more than a trend; it is a customary habit where individuals can express who they are and how they live by their values. Consumers no longer want to purchase products that don’t blend with their values, especially products that may include harmful or mysterious chemicals. The bottom line is that consumers will lean into products that are transparent, honest, organic, and environmentally friendly; products that can accommodate to their taste and preferences and ultimately be their partners when it comes down to making positive life choices.
This on-demand wellness economy has pushed brands to establish a purpose-driven approach in order to deepen their connections with their wide range of consumers. This has posed them to blend wellness into their marketing strategies and innovate their products and offerings so that they can motivate consumers and provide solutions to their day-to-day tensions, concerns, and challenges. As the world of wellness expands, companies that integrate a vision of holistic wellness have an opportunity to impact positive consumer behaviors that defines what they wish to achieve for now and the future to come.
