1. COMPANY ANALYSIS-beauty brand growth opportunity

As a hypothetical example of a beauty brand hyper-growth opportunity, I will use FUN SKIN, a brand that solves the unique problem of reducing skin’s age with clean skincare and the highest concentration of clean anti-oxidants. This unique selling point helps the brand acquire consumers quickly, and its home kit to monitor progress builds three times more loyalty than otherwise. 

The best campaign results come from in-person ambassador marketing as they acquire, up and cross-sell, and get referrals, all in one step. This success is mainly because of the opportunity to educate and experience the detox and skin benefits.

1a) What is FUN SKIN's USP

FUN SKIN’S core promise is to reduce skin age with every usage & via highest concentration of clean anti-oxidants ingredients.

1b) What is FUN SKIN's back up for the claim

FUN SKIN uses trifecta detox technology-highest concentration possible of clean actives, clean anti-oxidants, and clean nutritious ingredients for the skin.

2. CATEGORY ANALYSIS-beauty brand growth opportunity

2a) Which claim category does FUN SKIN play in: clean, natural, organic, eco etc.

FUN SKIN plays in the clean beauty category of anti-aging skincare

It is imperative that you either play on the positive end of the claim category or create a new category of claim, taking it to another level, nullifying competition to be on a hyper-growth curve with your beauty brand.

2b) Which emerging trends is FUN SKIN best positioned to take advantage of?

FUN SKIN is well-positioned to take advantage of the growing trend toward reverse-aging where you get healthier with age, meaning your body’s biological age is far less than the chronological age.

3. COMPETITION ANALYSIS-beauty brand growth opportunity

3a) Creative segmentation of competitive offerings

The key to good competitive analysis is the creative segmentation of competitive offerings. FUN SKIN segmented its competitors on clean scores vs. pricing,, quantified anti-aging benefit vs. pricing, and quantified anti-aging benefit vs. clean scores. 

The result was a gap in instantly perceived aging benefits for the skin- in terms of no. of days for visible results + opportunity to differentiate its claim of the highest percentage of clean ingredients beyond the assurance of safety. 

The clinical brands did not offer clean ingredients, a few clean brands did claim time-based aging benefits for the skin.

For clean claims, Algenist at stopover 1, Biossance between 1 & 2, Tata Harper on 2 & Drunk Elephant between 2 & 3.

3c) Which competitors are closer to FUN SKIN's offerings?

Anti-Aging Claim:

Drunk Elephant and Biossance are closest with claims of visible results in 3 & 7 days vs 10 days for Algenist

Clean Claim:

For clean claims, Algenist at stopover 1, Biossance between 1 & 2, Tata Harper on 2 & Drunk Elephant between 2 & 3.

3d)Value vs.Competition

FUN SKIN does offer visible anti-aging results and has the highest concentration of clean ingredients and it needs to calculate the value it offers versus competition using Value=Quality/Price to find a gap for brand growth.

4. CHANNEL ANALYSIS-beauty brand growth opportunity

4a) Which are your best-performing channels?

Our best-performing channels are beauty specialty stores & health and wellness retailers. FUN SKIN does well in spas/clinics too but since the repeat sales are higher in beauty retailers because of the volume of traffic and visible results, the brand is ready for specialty beauty retail scale-up.

4b) What is your relative fit with different channels?

Beauty specialty stores are a great fit for our brand as they cater to customers who are actively seeking high-quality, innovative skincare products that offer visible results with minimal education. Health and wellness retailers also align with our brand promise of promoting healthy, youthful-looking skin without toxins.

4c) Why is the best performing channel so?

We have observed that our brand performs better in beauty specialty stores since the staff only needs to inform about the highest % of clean anti-oxidants for anti-aging with a demo at the store for high conversion rate and visible results at home help with repeat purchase rate.

SUMMARY-6C ANALYSIS: beauty brand growth opportunity

SUMMARY of 6C analysis for beauty brand growth strategy


Here is the breakdown of the 6C analysis for your beauty brand to find a hyper-growth opportunity:

  1. Company Analysis: FUN SKIN offers a higher quality solution to the same problem as others in a sophisticated and competitive beauty market. Its core promise is to provide a one-stop solution for reducing skin age with the highest % of clean anti-oxidants. However, the brand needs to move to between innovation stopovers 2 & 3 on the innovation spectrum and offer a unique solution to an unsolved problem.
  2. Category Analysis: FUN SKIN needs to redefine the category or take the claim of healthy and toxin-free skincare products to a new level while reducing skin age to ride the trend of reverse-aging.
  3. Competition Analysis: FUN SKIN needs to move beyond stopover 2 to distinguish itself around the highest percentage of clean anti-oxidants and/or delivery of visible anti-aging results within fewer days than 7 for the highest % of consumers beyond controlled clinical studies.
  4. Channel Analysis: FUN SKIN  needs to double down on the shopper marketing tactics of communicating the highest % of clean anti-oxidants and self-demo that have worked in specialty beauty retail to scale.
