Hydrosols Market

Hydrosol is the water-soluble portion of the plant and is an important by-product of the essential oil formulation process since it has the same qualities as an essential oil. It is the water-based product of steam distillation of flowers, fruits, leaves, and other plant materials. Rising demand for organic cosmetics and body care products will propel the market growth.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the hydrosol industry landscape since product demand for the manufacturing of perfumes and other body products declined. Many perfume businesses were negatively impacted due to poor demand, harvests of important components were going unpicked, and the supply of alcohol was disrupted, all while consumer demand fluctuated. However, the hydrosol market is set to gain momentum in the post-pandemic period as consumers’ purchasing power stabilizes, coupled with the resumption of raw material supply chain worldwide.

Hydrosols Market Trends

Global Essential Oils Market, 2021 – 2032 (Kilo Tons)

Essential oils are natural sources of components used in scents and flavorings, and they are frequently used in aromatherapy product blends with other essential oils. Although essential oils and hydrosols share some properties, hydrosols have a much higher water content, making them gentler than essential oils and allowing them to be applied directly to the skin without the need for dilution. They are utilized in cosmetics as scent components, as well as for their 'active' cosmetic characteristics. There is also an increase in demand for exotic essential oils for the cosmetics and fragrance industries.
