Context
According to Euromonitor International (2021), there was a decline in the total market
for beauty and personal care in Greece during 2021. This was attributed to government
measures to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, such as, home seclusion and
limited social occasions. Products including, deodorants, depilatories, colour
cosmetics, sun care and fragrances were all negatively impacted, whereas, bath and
shower products, sops, hand sanitizers and moisturizes and hand creams all
benefitted from increased demand.
